Lobos is an exciting new tapas bar also focused on prime cuts of Spanish and British meat. Meaning wolvesin Spanish, Lobos offers a short, sharp list of vibrantly authentic, traditional tapas with ingredients sourced locally, evolving seasonally and therefore dishes that will change frequently depending on what is available from the market. Lobos is a real carnivore’s paradise, think perfectly roasted Iberico pork, slow cooked shoulders of lamb and lightly charred, rosy pink bone in rib-eye to share, all presented simply and cooked to perfection, allowing the pristine quality of the offering to shine through. Please note that any reservations not confirmed with the restaurant may be subject to cancellation 24 hours before booking time.

Rack of lamb to die for, and all the food we got was perfectly cooked! will definitely be back if we're in London, we need to try the rest of the menu.
The people in the table next to us was a bit drunk and loud; a very unwelcome part of our meal... Everything else however - Great!

We came to Lobos for a meal after a show as a belated birthday celebration. The place is really nice, lively atmosphere. The seating is quite constricted, my husband is 6’2” and he couldn’t get his legs under the table at all in the booth. They do however stagger your food which is good, they make sure they don’t overload the small tables.
We ordered a few things from a very flustered waitress, yes it was busy but her rushing made us feel quite rushed too, certainly no time for niceties.
The padrón peppers were very well cooked, the presa very small and late arriving, but delicious, the black rice oddly had the squid battered and fried separately and put on top, so not very authentic, but the rice itself was really tasty. Despite having ordered about six tapas we were still really hungry so we ordered the monkfish, again very tasty, and the green salad, not so tasty as it was mainly crunchy lettuce.
The bill was very steep and absolutely not a reflection of how we felt about the place, the service and the food, so we won’t be coming back, but it’s a shame, as it has the makings of a great place.

We ate at Lobos on a Thursday evening at 5.15. The restaurant was buzzing, busy & very welcoming. The layout is amazingly woven amongst the railway arches making an incredibly cosy venue.
To start I enjoyed an excellent Aperol Spritz while To eat we chose the mixed platter of Iberica ham to share between us. The meat was tremendous - very tender & absolutely full of flavour. To follow I went for the Panacotta which was delicious & our whole meal was accompanied by a very nice bottle of wine.
A brilliant meal in an extremely welcoming atmosphere - with excellent service.

Another fantastic evening at Lobos. Still working our way through the menu after several visits and yet to find anything we wouldn't have again. Wonderful staff, great atmosphere, delicious wine .... and the food!

Excellent food and service, my only moan is the seating, as I thought we would be sitting at a proper table when actually we were placed in the entrance hall on stools. The food, however, was 10 out of 10: absolutely brilliant tapas, and I live in Spain!

Rushed and average food. You are given 1:30 to dine. How are you supposed to have dinner on the clock when they are also late with the food. We were constantly asked if we want something else even though we even had coffee after dinner. They are after profits and do not care about the experience. Average food. Never again!

Food interesting and very well prepared but expensive for what it was. The noise of the trains overhead was annoying but less than the noise of other tables shouting as the restaurant had mainly hard surfaces so sound wasn't deadened.
However, other restaurants in the area as as expensive, the area has gone trendy in the recent past a pity as it used to b e a traditional south London area with good restaurants at a reasonable price.

Good food and wine. However, it’s right under the railway so the noise from the trains is quite loud. The toilets not very clean.

Lobos used to be our favourite website but unfortunately over the years the food quality has reduced massively. The steak was very fatty and slightly cold when served. Also, although the ambiance is lovely with gorgeous tables in the arches, the service is very rushed. We had all of our food served together (despite ordering starters) and they took plates away when we weren’t finished. We were in and out in just over 50 mins! It’s such a shame it’s changed because we always found it such a wonderful place.

Great food, but it was very loud and tables feel very small. Worth it for the food and lovely wine but not great for conversation and service was a bit hit or miss (asked 4 times for a bottle of wine that they’d forgotten about)

Fantastically finessed tapas with good service. Good use of a small / tricky space - it felt intimate, but not crowded. Great place for a date or a catch-up with a good friend.

Really good food and great service. Only downside are the stairs to the toilets are warm and very slippery, a high risk of injury which should be addressed
