Tapas Revolution

Time Out says

This Shoreditch restaurant is from ex-El Pirata Detapas chef, Omar Allibhoy. It's his second London tapas joint, following on from the original over at the Westfield. There's another in Bluewater and he's now branching out into other UK cities, too. He must know what he's doing.

Despite paella for two, Basque rib-eyes and gambas a la plancha, it's mostly about the tapas here. Plates range from toasted almonds and bread with garlic mayo to jamon iberico, boquerones, steamed octopus with smoked paprika and new potatoes, and torreznos fritos – crispy pork belly with a sweet and spicy sauce.

Drinks include Spanish wines and craft beers, a selection of cocktails (including a dedicated gin and tonic menu) and a number of different sherries. Keep an eye out for specials on sangria, too.

THE best croquetas in Lodnon and the Gin Tonics are amazing, espescially on the terrace in the sunshine!

What a great night ! 

I attended an evening here hosted by Estrella Galicia 

It was wildly social , with everybody enjoying live entertainment and delicious tapas with Estrella Galicia on tap, and glasses being refreshed by friendly Spanish hostesses throughout. Enormous fun, and for me an introduction to the restaurant and the beer. 

Popped in on Thursday for a spot of lunch. Very friendly service and the £9.95 deal for food and a drink was great. Food tasted amazing and I also got to meet Omar allibhoy the owner, who's book is my bible. Will definitely go again.


Lovely place to have a lunch or a light evening snack Mediterranean style, followed by a glass of wine or sangria. The food was delicious are arrived very promptly, but the staff were a bit confused and kept bringing us random dishes to check if we ordered that. The place is reasonably quiet, so great for meetings and dates, but rather non-remarkable in other ways and can easily be beaten by other venues in the area.


With a plethora of tapas joints in London to choose from this place stands out for me as offering both delicious food, but at prices that won't make you weep. Even better- you can book! So no hour long queue out in the cold before giving up and going to Pizza Express. They offer the usual range of charcuterie, cheeses, fish, and of course, patatas bravas in hearty portion sizes. The staff are friendly and the drinks menu is excellent. A great option if you're in Shoredtich.
