London’s Boqueria is an exciting tapas restaurant located on Brixton’s Acre Lane. Unique in its pedigree, Boqueria is entirely inspired by Barcelona’s iconic El Mercat de San Josep de la Boqueria, a famed market synonymous with Spain’s food and wine. With this in mind the Boqueria team seek to introduce diners to the most traditional flavours of Spain in a setting that really wouldn’t look out of place along the streets of Barca. Forget everything you might have learned in the conveyor belt tapas joints of London and settle in to enjoy the authentic recipes of true tapas bars - dishes made using fresh ingredients, specialty Spanish ingredients and just a sprinkling of creativity to capture the real essence of Espana. As important to the Boqueria experience as food is drink. On the wine list is a small selection of only high quality Spanish wines while a specialty menu of sherries and cavas complements the menu and brings a fresh perspective to dinner time drinks.

    Felt the food lacked taste, under spiced and seasoned. It was well cooked and presented

    It was a great meal and the wine was amazing. The only slight negative was it was a little chilly where we were sat in the basement but apart from that we had a lovely evening and will come back soon!

    Boqueria is my local 'go to' restaurant because, without fail, the food is always absolutely delicious. The tastes are fresh and authentic and I would highly recommend that you call by if you are in the area.

    Delicious food - as always - with some excellent daily specials as well as the main menu. My only complaint was that when we ordered a second round of dishes - because the first was so yummy - there was a misunderstanding with one dish, and then even the replacement was the wrong dish (but we didn’t have the heart to tell them it was wrong again so we ate what we were given instead of what we had ordered).

    I've eaten here many times, but it's never been as bad as it is today. Everything is salty and squid doesn't taste. Fried food and fake taste.. 2 hours after meal but still thirsty. This restaurant was with only a good atmosphere.

    It's 6 months since we were last here. We had an excellent evening. We had deliberately chosen a Monday evening because one member of the party is pretty deaf (me) and we thought it would be quieter. Actually there were fewer people in the restaurant than last time but the noise level was difficult for me. We loved the variety of food, the wine was excellent and the service was outstanding. There's a lot of competition to be the best tapas restaurant in London and none of us knows of a better one than Boqueria. Thanks to all

    Food seemed not as good as usual, although cannot put our finger on why. Service seemed a bit rushed, which was a surprise as there weren't many people there when we arrived. Still a great place to eat and sure this was a one-off.

    This is a favourite restaurant of ours - a place for celebration and for that moment when you just need someone to look after you. The food is excellent - from reliable stalwarts like the pulpo a la Gallega to the new items that appear on the specials board and, sometimes, delightfully make their way onto the main menu (the confit de cordero being my favourite example, although the roasted artichokes will, I hope, go the same way). Desserts are hard to choose from, but my most recent outing was "Spain's most famous cheesecake" - I don't know if it is, but it truly deserves to be (and I am a cheesecake afficionado). Wine list is principally Spanish, well chosen, and nicely priced. You may have picked up I love this place - perhaps worth noting that so does anyone I know who has visited, whether on their own initiative or dragged there by us.

    This was our 3rd visit, the first two times were perfect however this time left us dissapointed purely due to customer service. The waitress (young girl with glasses) was moody, no warmth or smile whatsoever and gave my partner a filthy look for asking for a latte, for what reason I do not know. She really looked like she did not want to be there and as though we were a burden to serve. For this reason we shall unfortunately not be visiting again. Such a shame as the food is lovely but waitress spoilt it for us. Date of visit was new years day as well.

    LOVE this place, been eating here since it opened and it never disappoints. One small gripe; too much throwing of bottles into the bins at the bar. Prefer to eat at the counter but it’s jarring with bottles crashing into the bins.

    Fabulous food, delightful waiting staff, friendly ambience, but oh, the noise! Partly (mainly?) to do with the low ceiling, which must have affected the acoustics, partly because it was Saturday night, but it would be the most perfect place if that could be remedied.
