A very well-run establishment with the most engaged, kind and professionsal staff. We enjoy always the Spanish guitarist. The food is excellent and served at a perfect tempo.

Wonderful and authentic tapas! Everything about this place reminded me of my trip to Spain - the food, the wine, the live guitar music. It was a fun place for a group of friends to catch up over good food in drinks. Will go back!

Came here early on a Saturday. Was quiet to start off with, more diners arrived later in the evening. Good wine list and knowledge from our waiter. Food is high quality and priced appropriately. Service was brisk throughout. Nice ambience, some live music towards the end also. Good location for a date/ meal with your SO. We were sat by the window, the only downside of which related to witnessing the unusual procession of waiters and occasionally kitchen staff going in and out of the front door, at times carrying items on trays, to and from somewhere up the road. Not a problem per se but one does wonder what they were up to.

Really impressive, the food was outstanding. One of the best restaurants I've visited this year and certainly the best tapas I've found in London so far. Charming venue and a truly authentic feel.

I had my birthday dinner with a couple of friends here. The food was delicious and service excellent. A guitarist playing while we ate was a nice surprise. Although we weren't a big group I felt this restaurant is more for couples than groups as it is quite small and the environment is more on the romantic side. Will definitely come again, but probably just with my partner.

From the second you walk in you're transported to Spain. The staff are all native speakers and show passion in the food and drink. Razor clams ceviche to die for. Sherry tasting menu very reasonable and well worth trying. Noisy in a good way, filled with people enjoying the food & listening to live Spanish guitar. Will be visiting again with family next time instead of just as a couple. Very happy they welcomed us in at close to 11pm thanks to delay getting there after a show. Have eaten at their other place and both places feel like you're getting a very special treat.

We had dinner at Capote Y Toros with some friends over from Australia. The restaurant is quite small and intimate - staff were very helpful and the music made it a memorable exerience (especially when some of the diners joined in). Food was very good - the tapas arrived in dribs and drabs with all the cold salad dishes coming first, which was a bit annoying. However, it spaced the meal out nicely and we had lost count of what we had ordered/eaten/ were still to eat! Sherry to start was lovely and well recommended. Churros for dessert were delicious. overall a good experience and would recommend to others.

It's easy to spend a fortune here as the food is all delicious. Whilst each dish is fairly reasonably priced, it's hard to stick at just two or three. Stand out dishes were the calamari, padron peppers, bone marrow and croquettes. Excellent selection of wines and sherries, and friendly service. It's a very popular place so be warned that the staff will ask you to leave once your two hours is up!

LOved our first visit to Capote y Toros last Friday night. We felt we'd booked early at 7.30pm but after just 15 minutes this cosy neighbourhood eaterie was bustling with people, the ambience enhanced by the dulcet tones of the spanish guitar player. We eat plates of well timed, superbly executed tapas from old staples such as Iberico ham and patatas bravas to more innovative dishes such as fried octopus. Sadly the razor clams were off the menu. Excellent spanish wines well priced and a gin menu to die for rounded the meal off superbly

 (Manchester)·Dined on 7 June 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed all the tapas but the standouts were the croquettes, 5j jamon and padrons. Service was good, friendly, and organised though our requested wine had to be chilled as we went along, slightly odd that we weren't offered an alternative? Minor point, in any case. The ambience was compromised by large numbers of braying drunk customers, I hope that's not normal as we'd otherwise very much choose to come back for the food and service.

We had a fantastic meal at this restaurant last Friday. The decor is spanish bullfighting chic, lots of pictures, sherry bottles, hanging hams and bright colours. This coupled with a very talented man playing spanish guitar, and a lively Friday night crowd provided a great backdrop to the exceptionally tasty Tapas, and best of all, gourmet gin and tonics picked from a lengthy menu where each type of gin is served with a different combination of aromatics. My Gin Mare with rosemary, thyme and juniper berries was sublime. I prefer the casual dining feel to this venue compared to the more grown up sister restaurants a few doors down. I would highly recommend it, though at £110.00 for two people, it is not cheap.

It was not clear that we had only 1 hour 45 mins for booking. Luckily we arrived on time but had to leave table before we could order desserts although told we could place an order at bar ( which we did not want to do) which was very narrow and busy. We told manager we were not aware of the short table time and were offered complimentary sherries by way of an apology.

We enjoyed our evening at Capote Y Toros, the food was very good and the service friendly and helpful. One issue though, was the wine list, it was laid out in a different way to most restaurant wine lists which made it difficult to navigate, the main problem with it though was that there were hardly any wines at the lower price range, we found two under £30 a bottle, one red and one white. I think that makes this an expensive evening out for a few plates of excellent tapas in fairly casual surroundings, hence my low rating for value for money.

Nice small place, easy to get to between Earl's Court and South Ken. Good if you like Spanish tapas tupe food, quick service, good selection and some really very tastey. Friebdly and helpful staff, very Spanish ambience with live flamenco guitar in background and Spainsh speaking staff. Would go back for a fun and energised place to eat. Had rose wine was ok, not great, but then again probably mot a Spanish speciality........
