Proper quality Spanish food. We felt like we were on holidays again! Thank you El Norte, we will be back soon. Your Pluma ibérica was one of the best meats I ever had!

I already have been a several times at El Norte, and it always delivers. This time I went for a friends night out, and it was a lot of fun. We had great food, cool music, and addictive cocktails. Highly recommend it

We had a wonderful evening! The food was amazing- fine dinning at its best. Great service. We asked for the music to be turned down a bit and this was done willingly. It is a bit expensive but definitely worth it!

Spectacular restaurant. I especially loved the truffle tortilla, goat cheese croquettes (whoever invented this is a genius), tomato salad, Jamon iberico and the octopus. And the best for last !!! Chestnut mousse. It’s probably my favourite desert now 😍

Outstanding food, waiter really helpful and gave a couple of recommendations…. Bit of a funny one- made a note that it was an anniversary on the booking form. Only for a happy birthday dessert to come out!

The best Spanish restaurant in London!
I cannot recommend it enough: from the elegant atmosphere, to the amazing cocktails which are not only good but also nicely presented, to the delicious and authentic food and finally to the service which is impeccable.

My favourite restaurant in Mayfair. The food amazes me every time and I just had the gin January cocktail for the first time which is the best thing I’ve ever had. A special Spanish gin with a melon twist. Sooooo delicious. The staff also make you have the best time and are so warm

Service and food quality were very good, but the restaurant is noisy and we were asked to leave quite promptly after we finished, as they needed the table. Overall, it is quite pricey for what it is. In particular, there is a huge mark-up on wine, with the price you pay for a glass being more than the price for an entire bottle of the same wine when purchased in a shop. Also, the dessert menu is underwhelming, with limited choice.

Good food - top end tapas. Compares well with good Galician restaurants. Croquettes,peppers and calamari excellent. Pricey but then it is Dover Street so what do you expect?

It was my 55th birthday and I thought it would be nice to try something different . Staff are very nice and they are very attentive . My brother ask them to make the dessert look
Like a birthday cake and they made it. An exquisite truffle cheese cake in a happy birthday detailed plate. Lovely place ❤️

Would highly recommend El Norte. The service was impeccable, really great attention by the staff. The setting is beautiful and bar has some incredible cocktails; really loved the lemon meringue drink the bar manager recommended, is a like an hybrid drink, dessert and cocktail in one, delicious.
