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.

Fantastic experience given they were operating in less than usual circumstances. I was most struck by the really lovely, friendly staff who were very attentive. If possible I'd suggest investing in a few more heaters/some blankets (although I was still more than happy being outside and just having a lovely meal), just to help with the cold a bit more!

Tapas are quite good. Maybe more quantity on plates to be improved.

We waited over an hour for our food. We questioned the delay after half an hour, and were just told the kitchen was busy (they didn't check on our order). At an hour, we asked again, and thankfully they checked and said it would be out shortly. No explanation to what happened or compensation for waiting for so long. I don't know if that's normal or not because no-one clarified if they lost our ticket, or it just does take an hour to reheat tiny plates of food when busy. We did get 10% off our bill, but there was 12.5% service charge on top anyway. The food was nice, but not worth waiting an hour for. Great space for covid-times as under cover from rain, but can be quite noisy. Service was friendly otherwise.

Great experience, it was pretty busy, and the staff were great. Even though they were so busy, they were extremely attentive! Which is very rare.
Great food, so rich in flavour, will definitely be going back

We tried different types of tapas and appetizers, and our favourites were the croquetas and the tortilla de patatas. The service was very good and the girls working there are really nice! We will come back :)

Post lockdown so they were probably doing way more covers than they’re used to. Food was not worth the prices in the menu, seemed rushed.

Food is pretty average. Drinks were good. Current outdoor seating is not ideal, cold and dark under the bridge. Service and staff were lovely. Bill was higher than expected.

Great food, vibrant atmosphere. Staff were attentive and charming despite being run off their feet. Everyone else was half our age but we weren’t made to feel out of place.
Been several times, usually indoors. Always a pleasure. Only regret was that the octopus with celeriac mash was off the menu!

I’ve always enjoyed eating here but this was the first time outside - they’ve done a great job creating an outdoor area under the railway bridge (there is the odd train making it noisy but it’s not too bad) with lots of heaters.
Food was great - all their usual favourites were on the menu but also a few new additions - the grilled artichokes were a standout.
Staff are charming , efficient and friendly - the host/manager in particular did a great job organising the wait and turning over tables and trying to seat everyone in the warmest areas.

Sat outside under the train tracks due to covid - nice area with heaters. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food came quickly and the meat was tasty. Garlic prawns were large.

The food was amazing and we ordered most of the menu and the only thing that stopped us from ordering more was we were full!

The staff both that served us and welcomed us were amazing, friendly and knew the menu when we asked for recommendations.

A place that I will go back many many times.

Lovely food but currently the situation isn't great. The terrace is covered (under the train tracks - loud!) and there are heaters so its a cosy spot for dinner. But unfortunately though, we were mid wine bottle and wanted to order dessert when we were told 'our reservation had ended' and they were bringing us the bill. 1,5 hour to have a cocktail, then tapas and a bottle of wine and wanting dessert.. Over £100 pounds spent and we got kicked off the table with our glasses in hand. Not a pleasant experience at all! Maybe wait until they re-open properly before you settle in for a nice dinner?

I absolutely love this place! I went to the soho one and was so amazed by the food I went for my birthday celebration. I went to the Borough one which did not disappoint. The food was completely different which I thought was very clever. I will continue to come back here for sure!!!! LOVE xxx

Thanks Lobos for a great experience on Saturday night. With your expanded outdoor area serving so many people must be a challenge but service was actually incredibly quick in the circumstances and for such good quality food. We were celebrating a special occasion and you helped it go really smoothly. Los Lobos is not cheap, but then we did try virtually everything on the menu, cocktails, wine and more! The truffle cheese, garlic prawns, octopus in brioche and black rice were all amazing. The chuleton divided opinion (too rare?) but I loved it and the chimichurri was great.
