A stylish and welcoming tapas bar that mixes authentic Andalusian dishes and an interesting wine and sherry selection.

This convivial tapas bar in Peckham Rye is not just a natural sideline to the Spanish-food import business run by its owners but a labour of love. Its look mixes the style defaults of a smart Spanish tapas bar with a modern London restaurant – so cast-iron stools, reclaimed barrels serving as tables and faded photos of old Seville are set against a background of bare brickwork and exposed bulbs. And very handsome it is, too.

Happily, the food lives up to its surroundings. Dishes mostly tread tried-and-tested tapas territory, with only the odd flight of fancy thrown in. Though familiar, almost everything we tasted was a high-quality example of its type.

Soft rounds of bread came topped with soft, smoky chorizo and a crisp-edged quail’s egg, a savoury combination beautifully counterbalanced with a smear of sweet slow-cooked onions. Properly cooked tortilla arrived at our table as a runny-centred wedge cut from a freshly fried omelette. Best of all were crunchy-coated morsels of fried chicken served with mojo picón, the spicy red-pepper dip from the Canary Islands usually served with papas arrugadas (new potatoes boiled in heavily salted water until wrinkly). Slightly bland jamón croquetas were the only disappointment.

The all-Spanish wine list is of solid quality and pleasingly diverse, with plenty by the glass. Peckhamites can add another solid local restaurant to their ever-lengthening hit-list.

Miss Tapas was one of few restaurants still open on Easter Sunday when we decided to visit. As with most up and coming restaurants these days, we were unable to book so the friendly waitress took my number and we went to a nearby pub until we were called. The food was delicious, especially the ox cheek which was so tender that it fell apart as soon as I put my fork in. Unfortunately they had sold out of the chorizo and egg dish which I know is very popular! It was great to have great Spanish Tapas with an modern European twist; such as the fillet of tuna with green pesto. The only let down for me was the seating which mainly comprises of high stools around barrels which are quite uncomfortable and meant that we didn't stay for hours chatting and eating, as you would normally with Tapas.


Love, love, love Miss Tapas. If we need a treat, we come here. Small but perfectly formed. Lovely tapas washed down with ice cold Estrella at a very reasonable price. Always service with a smile. Really, who needs the West End anymore. Highly recommended. If there isn't a table available, leave your number, go have a pint at a local & they'll call you when your table is ready.


Wonderful food with an ever changing menu. It's clearly quality produce that's cooked by experienced hands. Staff are friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere is lovely. Great for a special occasion or celebratory meal!


Amazing little find tucked away on Peckham back street. Great food, wine and atmosphere. Always grab a bite here late after drinks local.


I'm Spanish, this is a real tapas place. I highly recommend Miss tapas.

Really great value, really friendly service, really tasty food. The vinegary hake nuggets in particular were fantastic. Will head back soon to try the few remaining dishes I didn't have a crack at first time round.


I haven't eaten tapas since our amazing Seville trip last year, so I was in no mood to be fobbed off with a rubbish restaurant claiming to be authentic, but it was heavenly!   I just can't fault this sweet delicious little place - open on Sunday nights too.  We had the chorizo and egg (as pictured above), the sublime pork fillet (their signature dish which is melt in your mouth gorgeous), and a wonderful goats cheese and honey combination.  A divine, reasonably priced and warm little slice of heaven with lovely staff, seemingly relaxed and nice clientele and despite it being in Peckham, not a whiff of pretentious beardy faff uber cool naffness - despite them only serving IPA as their beer option (which frankly I loved)

Not gonna lie we stumbled in at 10.30pm after being at Frank's down the road. Starved we ordered loads of yummy food. Favourites were the Patatas Bravas which were spicy potatoes with a sour cream and salsa. The Sirloin was amazing too came with a nice peppery sauce and a really tender. Restaurant was very clean and I believe they kept the kitchen open just for us.


This has been my favourite Peckham restaurant for the last couple of months. Having been to Andalusia many times in the last couple of years, this is the closest restaurant in London that I've found that can rival the food you'd get in region.

The Padron Peppers set you up nicely, but save space for Croquettes and fried Goats Cheese and Honey. Lush.

The food here is absolutely top notch. Traditional Spanish favourites done to perfection, you can taste the care and attention to detail. Plus the owners and staff are so friendly and the atmosphere is great. What more could you want?! We'll be going back!


I had a lovely meal with a friend at Miss Tapas on Choumert Road
http://www.misstapas.com/

It was really simple but very nice - for example the tortilla was still soft in the middle rather than rubbery  like they so often are.  The quails egg, caramalised onion and chorizo on bread (shown in the picture) were delicious. At £40 for two was very reasonable and the couple who run it were very friendly and welcoming.

The chocolate cake was very tasty, not to sweet or stodgy.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back.


The best and most authentic Andalucian tapas I've had in London. Helped along by the fact that its served by the lovely owner. She's a true Sevillana, and most friendly.

The food itself is simple but perfectly executed. All the basics; croquetas, tortilla, pan con tomate etc and some other interesting dishes too; when I went last they had octopus and also quails eggs on toast. Both delicious. Oh and the tarta de Santiago was amazing! One of my favourite small restaurants in London.
