Time Out says
A highly-regarded tapas restaurant in Mayfair.
El Pirata is an authentic, informal, Spanish tapas bar tucked away in the corner of Mayfair a stone’s throw away from Hyde Park, and a short walk away from Green Park station. We have been fortunate enough to be serving in the community for over 25 years, and we have been able to do that because we ensure that every guest instantly feels at home through our relaxed, warm and inviting atmosphere, and our friendly staff, some of whom have been with us since the very beginning. We have always had an expansive tapas menu featuring classic, authentic dishes and recently have worked with our friend Zac Whittle, former Executive Chef of Michelin-starred Galvin Restaurants, on some new dishes and to strengthen the El Pirata experience we offer to our guests. We are equally proud of our wine list which features over 100 wines, offered at a great value, particularly for Mayfair, through our trusted longstanding suppliers.
Whether you are dining in our artistic colourful upstairs with a feature bar, in our newly decorated downstairs Cellar with hand painted mural and cosy alcoves, or sipping rioja al fresco on our terrace, we hope to offer you true escapism so you feel you’re in Madrid rather than Mayfair.
Don't forget our bottomless brunch: 7 tapas dishes and unlimited Cava/Sangria for £35pp. Saturdays only, 12-4pm. Booking essential.
