Venue says: "Happy hour! Sun-Thu (4-7pm). Selected drinks £5. Try our G&Ts served in stunning Spanish balloon glasses. Book a table on our terrace!"

On the site that was once the vegan raw food restaurant Saf, the Spanish restaurant group Brindisa have opened this fourth branch. Cured meats and strings of onions hanging above the counter frames the stainless steel open kitchen. As well as the usual selection of cured meats, cheeses, tortillas and patatas bravas, the menu features Valencian rice stews and bakes packed with lobster, pork ribs and chorizo, or wild mushrooms (for two or more), displayed invitingly along the counter in large pans. Our bacalao rebozado saw slices of salt cod – moist and not too salty – deep-fried in a light batter attractively presented with a dab of aioli, a pinch of paprika and a scattering of mixed baby leaves. Dessert proved interesting with an Ibizan curd cheese tart flavoured with mint and star anise – a surprisingly successful, if unusual combination.

Tramontana Brindisa says
'La Plantada: rice and cava sangria'. During June and July the rice crops of Spain are planted. The community traditionally gather at the edge of the fields to celebrate it, cooking delicious rice on an open fire. In July and August we will host our own plantada, so bring your beloved ones and share a bubbling pan of seafood bomba rice all washed down with an ice cold sharing jar of cava sangria (£45pp).

Our menu focuses on Spanish-Mediterranean cuisine, and we are famed for our bubbling pans of seafood and rice that are unlike any paella you have ever tried before. We pride ourselves on offering our guests an eclectic mix of seasonal tapas and sharing dishes showcasing the best produce Spain has to offer.

Have you ever tried fideuà? It's one of our specialities. Short strands of artisan pasta are cooked with cuttlefish and prawns, saffron, garlic and served with a silky smooth aioli. The pasta soaks up all the seafood stock and becomes irresistibly sticky – it's one of those moreish, must-tries.

At Tramontana, we serve an inspiring range of cocktails, beers and wines featuring Spain's best artisan distillers, brewers and vineyards at our bustling bar that stretches the length of our vibrant restaurant.

Enjoy your dinner 'alfresco' at our heated terrace and feel like if you were in Spain.

We are part of the Brindisa Tapas Kitchens family who have been serving tapas in London since 2004.

I was taken here by a Spanish friend, who assures me the food is authentic. Everything was delicious - particular highlights were the garlic and chilli prawns and the Spanish omelette. Cocktails are slightly cheaper during happy hour early evening, and all delicious, and the barman made a special non-alcoholic drink for my pregnant friend - also delicious! Staff were very knowledgeable and helpful, especially with regard advice for previously mentioned pregnant friend. It is a bit pricey but totally worth it.

A joke a shadow of what a tapas bar should be, it is a tourist trap, over priced and the food and wine are dreadful.

Not good. I grew up in spain, so I know a little about tapas. The menu here is very boring. where are the southern classics? No almejas, no Pil-Pil, no Calamari, and many more absentees. Portions are also tiny and its VERY expensive. I've given it the benefit of the doubt and been 3 times. Each time i have left disappointed, everything could be so much better
