Hidden gem, its one of the best tapas I have ever had in london and comes with  reasonable prices, and greats service.Have to book in advance... A definite go!

Fantastic meal last night. Wonderful choice of tapas and patatas bravas very different to those Ive had before...wonderful. Attentive staff. Loved it. Just sorry I live in the East Midlands!

A terrible experience! The food was the most bland form of tapas I've ever tasted, there seemed to be only 2 sauces that were used across the dishes, both of which were tasteless. La Tasca seems like a positively gourmet experience compared to this place. The service equalled the level of the food with the manager actually placing one dish down on our able whilst on the phone, and then not one waiter asked was our food ok even as we paid the bill. Tried to catch the managers eye on the way out and he avoided eye contact. I'd be ashamed if I worked there too. Massively overpriced and overall experience shockingly bad!

Went to Lolarojo for the first time tonight, got off to a good start with good wine and some nice dishes although not many vegetarian options. The waiter knocked over a candle and glass and burnt my hand and didnt even apologise and then after two hours another waiter brought the bill. Apparently its two hour slots only, we wouldnt have minded if this had been mentioned when we booked but it wasnt and when we said this the waiter was quite rude. At £45 per head I would have expected far better service. Certainly wouldnt recomend it.

Have been there yesterday with some friends. Food was simple but good, portions a bit too small in comparison to the average 8 £ per tapas which could very well be the proce for a main meal in many other restaurants around London...

I would agree with the other's comments on here, seems that since 2010 the Lola Roja management hasn't done anything about these comments. 6 of us went for dinner on a friday, just over 1 week ago. Table too small, barely enough space to hold all the food and we were way too close to the next table. Food ridiculously priced - since when does tapas cost £15 a dish? Isn't that a main meal as opposed to tapas?! Extremeley rude staff and it seems they really don't care about you once you're through the door - we went in at 7pm, ordered enough food and drinks for it to come to £240 between the 6 of us and were still finishing off a bottle of wine when at 8:55pm the waiter announced we had 5 mins to leave because our table was booked for 9pm, otherwise we'd get charged an additional £20!!! I have never experienced this before - it's friday night and people want to relax with good food, wine and company - isn't Spain all about 'slow food'?! We were completely taken aback and didn't know how to respond - in retrospect we should have called the manager to complain but it seems from other's comments that would probably have had no impact. Will never go there again - they really are nothing special and have no idea of what good customer service is.

If you want a nice relaxed meal don't go here. The food came so quickly it might as well have been a fast food restaurant, we had barely ordered when all the tapas except one dish came. then that one dish came 5 mins after we had finished the rest. It's worrying when food comes that quickly - cant be too fresh! The food is over priced and portions are small. Felt cheated having to pay at the end. There were so many waiters hovering around too and we were out in about 25 mins. I would not recomend this place. If you want proper good spanish food and a nice relaxed dining experience then don't go here!
