London Restaurants

Barrafina

Fodor's Review

London's top Spanish tapas bar is modeled on Cal Pep in old-town Barcelona, and similarly has only a few—23 in total—raised counter stools. It's no-reservations but the tapas is well worth the wait. Their motto is "Sourcing Not Saucing," so get ready to nosh on brilliant small plates prepared in front of you: garlic prawns, ham croquetas, salt cod fritters, rare Galician percebes ("goose barnacles") crustaceans, baby squid and octopus with capers,

plus obvious classics like Spanish torilla, spicy chorizo, and cured Montanera ham. There's a crack selection of Spanish reds, whites, sherries, and sparkling Cavas, and leave room for desserts like crèma Catalana or almond-based Santiago tart.
