This is a truly great local restaurant. One of my favourites in London.

Lovely spot, especially on a warm evening when you can sit outside, best eating option in Newington Green (though that may not be saying much!). Well worth having a chat about their wine list as they have a few unusual bottles that they're very happy to talk about.

I have tried my fair share of fine dining and I have to say I haven't found a restaurant, famous or otherwise that compares to Trangallan (although Honey and co comes close). The menus are alway fresh and often surprising. The atmosphere is lovely and the prices if you haven't got a massive appetite are reasonable. The sherry is delicious.

I went to dinner last night at Trangallan with my French friend, while she was in London for the Frieze art fair. I was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately I'm writing to say that I wished I never brought her to that restaurant. The waiter with glasses (a George Costanza from Seinfeld lookalike), was very rude to us. Firstly, when we asked for bread with our dessert cheese plate he made a joke about French people being crazy for eating bread – with cheese might I just add! when all the surrounding tables had bread on their tables. Not only that, but we were only graced with 3 slices – for 2 people! Then came the bill. We received a broken box (one leg was missing) with no sweets in it, and the same waiter made a joke about how the type of box you received depended on the bill!!! – how rude. This definitely sealed my never ever thinking about eating at Trangallan ever again, and telling everyone what an experience we've had. I'm a local, I've often walked past wondering what it's like to eat at this restaurant. Now I know, and wish I didn't.

Was brought to Trangallan by my girlfriend so came with no idea of what to expect or pre-conceptions and what a nice surprise it turned out to be! Superbly created rough round the edges decor just sets the casual intimate scene. Wine list was obviously well thought through - we just had the house red but was way better than most mid range bottles from other restaurants and was reasonably priced. Food was well thought through, imaginative and interesting, even the humble green side salad was elevated with a house recipe balsamic and lemon dressing. Yes some of the portions aren't huge for the price but i couldn't help but feel reasonable for the quality. Given the menu changes frequently I look forward to a return visit soon.

I had been meaning to try out this restaurant, after it was recommended to me by a friend, and so I visited it with her last night. The restaurant is lovely – there has definitely been lots of thought put into it and a creative mind behind it. The staff were fantastic, they couldn’t have been more friendly, helpful or knowledgeable. The food was exquisite – interesting and unusual food combinations and flavours BUT I was very disappointed with the menu selection and the price per dish based on the portion sizes (which were hardly even a side plate size!). I was also not impressed to find that it was exactly the same price to buy a bottle of wine (750ml) as it was to buy 6 separate glasses (each 125ml) of the same wine – normally it works out cheaper to buy the bottle. Similar to the previous review I also left the restaurant hungry.

Best restaurant I have been to in a long time. Food = incredible. Service = spot on. Love the furniture and small touches. I didn't think I would find a better tapas restaurant than Brindisa in London, but This. Is. It.

James

We paid for incredibly pricey plates barely corresponding to less of HALF portion of a Spanish tapa, including a 13£ (!) chewy and weird-taste piece of an unidentified meat which was smaller than my thumb. i don't mind spending some extra tenner for a good dinner, but I cant remember the last time I pushed back a fish plate because I could only taste the salt! Only star is for to the service (kind) and the environment (good taste). But we were there for "dinner", but we left hungry and frustrated.

Alex

i went a couple of weeks ago and i was highly disspointed by the simplicity of the food menu and the size of the portions. it even looked ridiculous on the plate. the staff was nice and friendly and the deco is amazing.

Louise

Sublime cooking. The quality of the ingredients and the work that goes in to each dish makes this a place you just want to keep coming back to. And we do. The wine list is interesting and inspires you to try something different from the usual list of pinot grigios, sauv blancs etc .In my opinion it is excellent value for money and the atmosphere created by the friendly and efficient staff is all one could wish for in a restaurant. We're very lucky to have it as our local.

We are locals and have been going here since it opened. We adore the place. Spanish tapas has always been interesting, but due to the daily changing menu and unique dishes, the little charming restaurant never fails to surprise. The 4 Spanish owners who are all friends all bring something different to the party. We especially love the former sommeliers wine selection and the interior designers eye for quirky detailing. It's a little gem.

Henrietta

I love the non-traditional tortilla! It is melt in the mouth heaven to me. Don't agree with your reviewer on that one. I am a local and while I agree with Michael that it isn't particularly cheap, you don't have to spend loads - the tapas range from about £4.50 to £11, so just pick and choose... and there is no minimum charge as far as I know so you could easily get away with £20/£25 a head and have eaten truly delicious food in fab surroundings. Since this opened in July I have been about 10 times, can't get enough of it. I'd rather save up and splurge here than spend a bit less somewhere not nearly as friendly, atmospheric and delicious...

Completely disagree on the prices post, I thought it was quite reasonalbe compared to what you pay at Spanish restaurants located in the centre of London. The Tapas are top notch with clever twists on the classics and the atmosphere is really inviting. One of my favourite Spanish places in London (and I'm Spanish)
