Fabulously atmospheric dining experience, good décor, not overly lit
Great service at the cocktail bar, prior to the main event - good selection of authentic Spanish dishes that were delicious
Nice wine selection - nothing too OTT on the pricing
Overall, if this were the last restaurant on earth, I'd happily eat there every day (assuming I could get a table)
Nice location, just off the busy streets. Excellent food and service
Outstanding service! Very attentive waiters and very accommodating! Food was amazing and really good value for money for the introductory tapas menus for 2!
Great service, great food and nice atmosphere! Requested a table on the main floor that was waiting at our reservation time. This place is a real gem and would highly recommend. Wonder experience.
Great food and ambience for a group of friends to get together
Very small portion of food; every thing was in a rush, can felt that the waiter was trying to force us to finish food sooner; the taste was not that authentic; not good value of price.
Very classic Spanish food with nice services. Good for casual dinning.
Friendly, welcoming and helpful staff got us off to a great start. Food, atmosphere and service were first class. Delighted with our decision to dine with El Pirata and will definitely look to return before too long.
We had a fantastic night at el pirata. Fantastic service and atmosphere. We had their introduction to tapas set meal. Which was reasonably priced and tasted fantastic.
Super food , excellent service and great all round experience. First time visit and all reviews where excellent, would recommend to anyone wanting something different from the normal choices.
Great experience. Authentic Spanish food. Best value for the price is the "introduction to tapas" menu.
Service team were fantastic. My wife was on crutches and they were really supportive. Food was great, lovely restaurant. Throughly recommend.
Great tapas. Great service. Food was nice and quick at a reasonable price. Desserts were surprisingly good too! Good night out.
Probably the best spanish tapas place in London. The food, wine, and the ambient was superb, and the staff really top notch
Service was attentive and non-intrusive and honestly impeccable. I'd give more stars if I could. We had a great time and drinks and food were very reasonably priced, and were absolutely scrumptious. Would definitely come again!
Absolutely fantastic place!! The food was delicious and the service is at the top level!
Fantastic tapas, nice and relaxed, with a great selection of dishes and reasonably priced, considering the location.
Service was a little on the sluggish side, though as they have just reopened, that can be forgiven.
Beer selection was limited, but the draft they did have was fairly quaffable.
Fab food great service
Great as always , amazing balance between great service and amazing food
Never disappoints! Go to Spanish in London
Had a nice enjoyable late lunch. Good ambience
Amazing experience all round. Stunning food, welcoming and helpful staff and a lovely atmosphere. Thank you!
We took advantage of our Covid bubble to have lunch at La Pirata. Staff were welcoming and efficient, so excellent service. Food was delicious and we particularly loved and strongly recommend the Langostinos and the Iberian pork.
It was good to be away from the madness of Christmas shoppers in a quiet location. It’s a very pleasant venue and yet still so close to Shepherds Market. Will definitely be back. Many thanks
Great restaurant brilliant food. Have been many times and never lets you down.
Loved the food and ambiance. Ordered the sharing platter for 2 and liked everything. The only thing I would like to mention is that it would be great if I was told while ordering water that it would be charged. Everything else was perfect! 😁
Excellent food and service, loved it and will go back again and again when in London :)
A surprise find tucked away off Piccadilly. Food was excellent especially the squid and chorizo in red wine. Staff professional and tentative but could have been a little more welcoming and interactive especially as my husband spoke to them in Spanish. We will definitely go back for the food alone.
Best tapas in London
In difficult times it was a joy to be able to dine in such a relaxed atmosphere.
Would definitely recommend.
A very nice meal and the £10 to eat out offer was good to have. The tortilla was perfect and the staff helpful
Excellent service, lovely waiters, incredible atmosphere and surrounding area
All good. Been a few times and always enjoy
We are regulars at this place. I think they need a change of menu now. The food has now achieved a “normal”. We had the usual prawns pili pili, mussels and chorizo, Padron peppers, batatas bravas etc. Their choice of wine and sherry “by the glass” needs a serious uplift.
