Barrafina 26-27 Dean Street, Soho, London, W1D 3LL (Map)

The best tapas in London. You can't ever get a table, it's noisy, busy and you often don't have enough space for elbows, but who cares when the food is this good and the atmosphere so electric. Favourite... More Atmosphere: Value: Quality:

“I absolutely ADORE this restaurant, which I think is second only to its sister Barrafina for the sheer quality of its tapas. The fennel and tomato salad is unbelievably good, all down to an incredible dressing. The ham croquetas are divine, being light and fluffy yet full of flavour and zero oiliness. But the best was the tortilla with chorizo - so much better than the best I've had in my visits to Barcelona! Needless to say, I bought the Fino cookbook on leaving to see if the recipe was inside. A note on the staff - Sebastien, our waiter and I believe the Manager, was the epitome of professionalism, but melded that skill with a deftness of touch and conviviality. It is fortunate this was the case, as the restaurant itself has a bit of a feel of an airport lounge, in that it's very open and not all that cosy. Atmosphere therefore is a little perfunctory and I think it could do with a bit of an update...”

“My fourth visit yet only my first review. The Penny Black has been in updating mode since my last visit last year and now has a much better atmosphere with more moody lighting and better separation between the dining room and bar. The bar itself is really buzzy and doesn't feel like an add-on anymore - I would now come here for one of the great cocktails they do without feeling I'm sitting in an airport lounge. The food has also come on leaps and bounds over the last few months and maybe a little less British in style, but all the better for its newfound openness. The tornedos rossini in particular is better than exceptional, possibly right up there with the best Michelin chefs. Prices have come down a touch from what I remember so the value is excellent. Very impressed with the improvements!”

“Much like Emily's review, I'd heard really good things about the pizza and it's special dough base....but found it rather dry without much tomato sauce, and the base was a bit too chewy for my liking. Having said that, the ingredients were top quality and the price was excellent. Staff were very friendly and and the restaurant had a good buzz. Would recommend it for a good, cheap, quick pizza after work.”

“Me and three girlfirends headed here for drinks and dinner just before Xmas and had a great time. The cocktails were amazing and we sat in the bar for over one hour before ordering dinner. The service was great and they didn't rush us into taking our table. The dinner was amazing and even after all the hype on the internet we were still blown away. My friend has never had salmon taste as good as here but the chocolate fondant was on another planet. Our only complaint is the music is a bit too retro and needs to be more modern to make the bar really buzzy. We will all definitely come back.”

“Just read some of the reviews and had to post a response because I love this place. Yes it gets busy, but doesn't that tell you something about the place? I also wanted to point out to the people ordering cocktails that this is a whiskey bar, not a cocktail bar. Ask them about the many different whiskeys and bourbons on offer and they will be much better than when they attempt a cocktail. I always have a great night when I go to slim jims and the drinks are no more expensive than any of the other small bars in Islington. Love it.”

“Went for dinner with friends and family . Good food but the staff disappointed by speaking about the customers behind their back and commenting on customers eating etiquette which made us feel bit uncomfortable .”

“The Posh and Becks of bars in Mayfair. Plenty of choice on the cocktail menu and the staff were willing to create a drink off piste although with limited success. Worth popping in but so many tables were pre reserved there wasnt anywhere to sit. Tip = get there early!”

The Shed, Notting Hill (Bar / Restaurant)
“I did not expect the Shed to be such a find - a cute little hideaway in Notting Hill with delightful interiors and even more delightful food. Even on a Tuesday, The Shed was rammed and you can tell from the volume of noise coming from the diners that everyone enjoyed the food and drink immensely. I particularly enjoyed the cuttlefish, smoked potatoes and the home made labneh cheese - none of which I had tried before. I would certainly recommend the Shed to others - make sure you allow lots of time to enjoy the food on offer, we were there for at least 3 hours, not due to slow service (service was excellent) but due to the need to try most items on the menu!”
