    I had family friends visiting from out of country and I wanted to take them somewhere nice. Another friend recommended this restaurant and I can definitely see why! The best part was the ambiance — El Notre is so tastefully designed and decorated; upscale, but not pretentious. Service was attentive and friendly, and the waiter offered some nice suggestions for mains and wines. We ordered quite a few dishes, standouts were the octopus, jamon, ox cheek, and padron peppers. Definitely pricey though.

    My wife and I came to this restaurant because we were in Spain on holidays few weeks ago and we wanted to feel like if we were again. It didn’t disappoint at all. The food was as good and the staff was really making the effort to accommodate and please any of our requests. Thank you very much! We will be there every time we need a bite of Spain ;)

    We went to el north for my birthday lunch, the food was really good and the ambiance was relaxing. The space is nicely decorated and clean and the service was good too. We went quite early (12pm) so the whole restaurant was empty, other ppl started arriving by the time we were leaving, around 1:15 pm. I just wish they could have made it more personal since when booking I mentioned this was for a my birthday lunch. ( a small happy birthday message on the dessert place would have been nice. )

    Waiter forgot to put the order through for our main course and so we had to cancel it. Gave us a free dessert but it was disappointing service considering the price. Still ended up £160 for 3 starters, 1 dessert and a pitcher of Sangria. Starters were really good to be fair but won’t be returning - also messed up our bill as we had to remind them to charge us for the drinks!

    Overall, it was a good experience. Being spanish ourselves, I can tell the tortilla and croquettes were really nice, but we were not too impressed with the calamari… pluma de cerdo ibérico had a nice glazed taste. The service was a bit slow, and we waited longer than usual for dessert. When the dessert arrived they apologised for the waiting and told us it was on the house, which was a nice touch. Professional service and good atmosphere. Just a bit overpriced in our opinion.

    Food was solid overall and reasonably authentic, but the service was completely inattentive and not on par with the price point, even with the struggles restaurants are going though these days. Our worst experience in London so far this trip.
