Lovely food and service and very nice place. Only thing was that the tables are very close together especially if there as a two/couple. Otherwise a fantastic evening xxx

It was a pretty nice, I have been to Boqueria before and the serviced is pretty good. The food is pretty nice and there is a real nice ambience about the place. Would highly recommend for a date night.

Good for couples and small groups, as long as you like eating in the dark as the ambient light level was was very much on the "intimate" side.
The quality of food was mostly very good, a few dishes were not to my taste but even then the quality was high. But when the dishes were good they were REALLY good. My next visit could easily just be multiple rounds of the suckling pig tacos!

I definitely would recommend this place, it’s cosy, food is amazing, they have different choices on the menu apart of the regular menu. Good selection of wines, the manager was in control of the service and the staff are very friendly and professional. I loved to be back

Always excellent food and very reasonably priced! The menu hasn’t changed in many years but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

I went to Boqueria because I had a Time Out voucher. The food was lovely, if a little salty. The variety of tapas was excellent, and we really enjoyed the cava. Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant is stylish and cosy. It's a shame that there's very little in the local area around Boqueria, but if I lived nearby I'd make it my local restaurant!

As usual excellent food in a great atmosphere. There is a good variety of tapas and other dishes - we really loved the crispy aubergine.

Absolutely gorgeous! Couldn’t fault anything. The most spectacular dish was suckling pig with lemon sorbet and spiced apple although all food we ordered was delicious, we had many things to share. We left supper happy and satisfied!

Lovely food, great flavours. Good options for vegetarians even though that isn't the focus. Prompt service in a relaxed but lively atmosphere.

Boqueria is just so good for so many types of dining and entertainment. I welcomed a business associate to Battersea today, and we enjoyed another excellent meal with first class service.
A glass of sherry always starts a meal so well, before a delicious white wine, accompanied by the usual imaginative tapas. Baby squid on special today.......superb!
See you soon.

Boqueria was a wonderful place to have my birthday dinner with girlfriends. The food was delicious, we had an array of things from croquetas to albondigas and lots of bread and wine. The service as quick, it was great value for everything we received. We had a lovely time and I would definitely go back!

We come often and love this place. This time the food wasn’t fresh from the kitchen, we had to remind our waiter what we ordered. We asked from a dish to come out last as dessert (crispy aubergine) and it was brought with everything else. It was a good experience but not up to your usual standards.

We went to Boqueria for my son's 7th birthday dinner. Spanish food is a firm family favourite but now Boqueria is a favourite for Spanish! The staff were really warm and friendly but probably needed some more training in the kitchen since they didn't always seem to remember our orders or know the contents of the menu. The only disappointment for us was the Churros that were brought for the birthday treat and it was horribly under-cooked and pasty on the inside. Surely something the kitchen could take better note of. Overall, still a very positive experience

Food was really nice, but paella took nearly an hour (they say "allow 25min"). Even the table next to us got their black rice and ate it before our table got served the paella...and they arrived after us! Otherwise, very nice overall.

We have now been several times to Boqueria Battersea. Always the service is attentive but unfussy. The atmosphere is buzzy but not loud but the absolute star is the food. Such terrific choices for all diets, and not just add-ons, delightful choices. The food is a total celebration of all the very best of Spanish tapas. Thank you. You always make a celebration special

You can choose between having a proper meal or be delighted by a drink with starters. I've been twice with my boyfriend and we are always amazed by food quality and service.
Heads up to the bartender, drinks are incredibly good!

We used to come here quite often but we have found that the quality has decreased massively and the prices are way higher in a period of 10 months. Disappointing
