Spanish
Llerena takes its name from a little village in Extremadura, southwest Spain, where four generations of our family has raised Iberian pigs since 1939, producing authentic "Bellota" jamón ibérico, chorizo and other pork delicacies. Our family created a business around the farm called Jamón y Salud to sell our gourmet products and has now brought this exquisite taste of Spain to Islington with the Llerena Ibérico Tapas Bar. Not only can you sample ibérico pork grilled meats and finest jamón, but also creamy Torta del Casar cheese and other traditional Extremadura's delights as well as the best wine from our region.

    Llerena as usual came up with the goods for a pre theatre meal. The gazpacho was particularly good and the trio of Jamon as usual. Alas for no morcilla or prawn croquetas but the replacements were great.

    Service was fab! The veggie options for the tapas were great. But the chorizo was not, it was chewy and I felt like it was a bowl full of the end of the sausage, which wasn't great. Feels like we got the left overs for the chorizo.

    Good food at reasonable prices. Service from the kitchen was slow & a few times I had to go and find a member of staff to do basic things like brings us water for the table & menus. Waiting staff were great.

    Really lovely food. Tasty. Only criticism was the tapas came out in dribs and drabs. Nice atmosphere and good service. Tapas and alcoholic drink came to about £35

    The food was good quality but not exceptionally tasty, little choice of tapas and very basic. Staff were nice and kind but slow and forgetful. Average experience overall.

    Great location. Good food. Reasonable prices. Excellent service. Can’t really understand why this place wasn’t much busier when we went for lunch on a Sunday. Highly recommend it. Definitely go back.

    Pan con tomato soggy and tasteless, cheese board of several sweating slivers of cheese with 2 grapes and sugar cubes of quince very disappointing, patatas bravas anything but - same tasteless tomato gloop on boiled pots. Padron peppers passable. Likewise Aperols and anchovies. Certainly don't recommend.

    The tables outside were on uneven ground and very uncomfortable. Service was incredibly slow. I ordered the Pan Con Tomate which was very good - And the steak. Which was awful. Probably won’t go back. It’s a nice idea but needs better execution.

    We hadn't had tapas for a while so a re-visit to Llerena was a good choice. As well as the variety of meat offerings, there's good cheese and other favourites such as tasty tortilla and croquettes. Nice wines too and very friendly service.

    My friend and I came here for my birthday lunch after reading all the good reviews online and we certainly were not disappointed. We had a bottle of cava which was very nice indeed. We had quite a lot of the dishes and all were delicious. The squid ink rice was absolutely outstanding as was the pork. Portions are a good size and pricing is fab, so you get great value for money. We will definitely be back
