Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

It’s always a good sign when the waitress insists you start your night with a sherry. This little tapas joint off Covent Garden has dark wooden tables for two opposite the bar, and larger tables lining the wall at the back. The menu is small but varied. Pick up citrusy pulled pork quesadillas or spicy chicken chipotle bocadillo sandwiches for lunch, or come for dinner specials that change weekly and, of course, a glass of sherry.

Condesa takes its tapas inspiration from across Spain and Latin America, so you might find unexpected dishes on the menu, such as the little pan of grilled provolone cheese – a typical Argentinian tapa. It’s not good for your cholesterol levels, but it spreads so easily over fresh bread, your doctor would surely understand. Pork cheeks were succulent, with strands of meat falling into a puréed carrot sauce; however, seasoning was timidly applied. Mole tacos had a dense, meaty filling wrapped in the softest of corn tortillas.

We loved the half carafes of wine too, as they provide a convivial way to graze across the menu and pair wine accordingly.

 

Condesa says
A buzzing tapas bar in Covent Garden, Condesa offers a blend of Spanish and Mexican cuisine. Eclectic ceiling lamps, photographs and the glass facade bring a cosy touch while the bar is constantly abuzz with guests enjoying wines and cocktails.
