302 Review

Top 10 things we discovered about Three O Two Restaurant when we visited:

1) When you’ve walked down a drab and droning Waterloo Road, you’ve grappled dangerously with a Boris bike, you’ve beaten back the elbows, and you’ve managed, above all, to keep crystallised in an expectant cartoon thought bubble above your head the image of a cosy taverna serving tapas, and then you take a right into the stark minimalism of H10 London Waterloo hotel, don’t despair.

2) Hope – because you’re moments away from a Mediterranean-evening-temperature kind of welcome. And very good tapas indeed.

3) The Spanish waiters at the restaurant will greet you as if you had stepped from the narrow, lemon tree-lined streets of Seville, and not a Boris vs Pedestrian battleground.

4) The restaurant itself resembles a New York bistro – cool beige, black wood, square brown leather seats, grey napkins, dim lights - but...

5 )...the food is a riot of colour and taste – the essential rusticity and simplicity of tapas captured, polished and given a bistro-style shine on flawless white rectangles and squares.

6) Try the melon and celery gazpacho with Iberian ham and fresh fig, the icy tartness breaking like a refreshing wave against the earthiness of the ham.

7) And follow with the grilled octopus in paprika sauce or the Cabrales cheese and red confited onion croquets; kids’ food grown up.

8) Either carry on one splendid small plate after small plate – averaging £6 - or choose a main (£11-17) – the Pil Pil cod, sweet potatoes and Boletus was our favourite.

9) For all its lull – it was mainly hotel guests enjoying a gentle supper when we visited mid week – this isn’t a restaurant reluctant to experiment. The Spanish omelette ‘in textures’ – compartmentalised layers of potato, onion and an egg white foam – shouts ‘Nevermind the bikes, lead me to the buzz’.

10) But when a glass of liquor made from the orange peel of Seville had sunk us into a stupor deeper than the bread basket, little stopped us from swiping our imaginary keycard in the door of our imaginary suite, and sinking into a fluffy robe. But – sigh - we weren’t staying. So we trundled back onto Waterloo Road to grapple with life or death by bicycle. Be warned – that hotel hush is hypnotising. You’ll come here for the food and want to sleep, not to party.
