Our first visit here and was so amazing the food and service were excellent and the Spanish people sitting around shows it’s a great place for tapas will be returning most probably weekly
Great to be back there. We ate outside and had very good meal. Great sardines. Perfect patatas bravas with fresh sauce (not too much). Friendly service. Will be back soon.
Thank you for the kind words. Much appreciated and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Don Felipe
It was so good to return to this restaurant after the events of 2020 and the start of this year.
I first visited Meson don Felipe back in the 80's when they had converted the old bank in The Cut. Reassuringly, apart form a splendid new coat of paint, little has altered!
Great tapas, great service and still an affordable wine list including some truly delicious sherries.
Thanks to the team for making it such a lovely return - we will be back soon.
Thank you so much for the kind feedback. It's been so lovely to welcome back so many of our loyal customers and see them again after the year we've had. We truly appreciate all the support. Gracias!
Very friendly staff, well organised, food as good as always, had a lovely evening
Came here on the recommendation of a friend for an early dinner. Glad to be have been able to have sat outside. We were not disappointed by the incredible food and service. Very friendly and welcoming atmosphere and not at all rushed.
We look forward to a return visit!
We look forward to seeing you again soon too! Always wonderful to get such a great review and we appreciate the time it takes to write them. It means a lot to us so thank you. Hasta la proxima Don Felipe
Lucky to have lived in Spain to know and enjoy good tapas
Was like being there again fab!
Thank you for the wonderful comments. We work hard to create a little bit of Spain in Waterloo and it's always great to hear from those who know Spain that we're well on the way to achieving it. Gracias y Hasta Pronto
Really tasty food, good-size portions, nice atmosphere inside the restaurant.
Only drawback: I had asked for a high chair for my son when I made the booking, I asked them where we arrived, they told me they would check if they had any, but they didn't come back with any feedback on this.
Thank you for the great feedback on the food and the atmosphere. Apologies that we don't have any high chairs and that you were left waiting for a response. We'll work harder next time to get your 4 star review to a 5 star. But we appreciate the feedback and hope to see you again soon. Don Felipe
Generous portions. Very tasty
The food was really disappointing. We’d heard great things about this place and it’s a shame it didn’t live up to expectations. The cava was great though!
Food was great! Felt as much as an authentic Spanish tapas as you can find in London. The ambiance was much better than expected. The pictures online do not really do the place justice. Will come back again for sure. This over Barrafina 100%.
Thank you for the great feedback and letting us know how much you enjoyed the food and the ambiance. We hope to see you again soon Don Felipe
Lovely lunch , sat outside no problems and attentive service
Gracias! Hasta la proxima! Don Felipe
Very nice Spanish bar. The food was so so, in terms of both quality and preparation. This place is better for drinks and aperitivo than for dinner. Prices are really low so it’s really convenient.
Thanks for the feedback and hopefully we'll see you again soon Don Felipe
Very authentic tapas place - excellent food and drinks for the price. The staff are also very friendly. Really reminds of the places you can find somewhere in Spain!
Gracias! We're proud of being an authentic Spanish bar in London. We celebrated 34 years in business a few weeks ago and we're pleased to say we haven't changed much! We hope to see you again soon Don Felipe
Overdue visit to London from the States.
A favorite haunt from before we moved there 25 years ago. We have never been disappointed. Outstanding consistency at this popular restaurant. Where happy memories and good food are made.
"Where happy memories and good food are made". What lovely words. Can we borrow them if we ever do an ad campaign? Gracias Don Felipe
Our favorite tapas restaurant and it didn’t disappoint
4th time I've been here. Love the vibe, we were stuck on a table round the side outside which is a little noisy and doesn't get you the ambiance but still it was great and my dad and daughter loved it. I expect to come back many times.
Thank you for the 5 stars and we look forward to seeing you back for the 5th time! Hasta Pronto Don Felipe
Really loved this place, brilliantly authentic, lovely people running it and we got to sit outside in sun so really felt like a mini holiday. And food amazing.
Off the beaten track of south bank but very central - defs going back!
Gracias and we love the thought of being a mini holiday! Hasta Pronto Don Felipe
Brilliant food, such a good find. We came here on the recommendation of a friend who has been coming here for 30 years. The restaurant owner came over to check we were ok. Lovely authentic tapas restaurant. We will be back!
Thank you for the 5 stars and fantastic feedback. It's wonderful to see so many loyal customers come back since we've reopened but lovely to know that after all this time we are still making new friends as they discover us for the first time. Gracias Don Felipe
Busy, buzzing, atmospheric, wonderful! The food here is first rate, the wine list is well rounded, and the staff are very very warm and efficient. It's very good value too. We visit whenever we're in London.
Thanks for the kind words and fantastic feedback. We appreciate it and look forward to seeing you again soon Don Felipe
Perfect food, atmosphere and service -it was so lovely to be back inside one of our favourite London haunts. Never disappoints.
All good, apart from the weather so better outdoor heating is needed.
Thanks for the feedback and whilst we can't control the weather, the sun seems to be back so we're looking forward to good times! Don Felipe
Come to this place often the food is lovely and very good value
Thanks for the 5 stars. We appreciate it and are delighted you had a great time with us. Come back soon Don Felipe
I sat outside which was lovely. Great food, friendly service and reasonable prices. Can’t ask for more.
Food is always great and very reasonably priced. Good portion sizes too. Sat on a table outside in the sun. Lovely.
Wonderful feedback. Gracias! Don Felipe
Just the best place to be in the sunshine! Fantastic food, wine and atmosphere.
Gracias! Our new outside space is looking amazing in the sun this week and we're hopefully giving our customers a little taste of Spain, here in Waterloo. Hasta Pronto! Don Felipe
Still fabulous after all these years!
Fantastic food and it’s so refreshing not to be ripped off on food and wine prices.
I won’t leave it so long this time to go back
Thank you the kind feedback. We work hard to ensure our prices are reasonable so great to hear it's appreciated. Come back soon! Don Felipe
Good food friendly quick service terrific tapas! Nice friendly atmosphere
Thank you for the kind words and 5 stars. We hope to see you again soon Don Felipe
Awesome food, fancied a dessert but weren’t offered a menu, but was probably too full anyway!
Thanks Johnny. We'll make sure you get offered a pudding next time, we have some lovely things, so make sure you save a space for them! ! Best wishes Don Felipe
We really enjoyed going back to Meson Don Felipe. It serves lovely and authentic Spanish food and wine and has the ambience of a traditional Spanish bar. The staff were polite and knowledgeable and we were given excellent advice on our choice of wine which was very reasonably priced. We will certainly be going again soon.
Muchas Gracias! We really appreciate the feedback and thank you for the glowing review. We look forward to seeing you again soon Don Felipe
Great food and a nice to be. The service was fast and efficient
Thank you for the 5 stars. It means a lot to us and we hope to see you again soon Don Felipe
Really pleasant Tapas place, great outdoor seating. Every dish was delicious, particularly the meatballs and squid. Sangria was well made and chilled to enjoy on hot day. Super reasonable priced, would recommend to anyone in the area.
Thank you for the kind words. Hopefully we're bringing a little bit of Spain to Waterloo, especially now the sunshine is out. See you again soon Don Felipe
Always good food, good service and value for money
Really great food - particularly loved the gambas and a fantastic service!
Great atmosphere, food Nd good portion size for Tapas.
Thank you. Much appreciated and always lovely to get another 5 star review Don Felipe
A real plus that lockdown has meant that MdF now have outside tables. Impeccable service. May as well have been in Spain. Perfect.
Olé! Thank you for the 5 stars and we're delighted you enjoyed the terrace. With the good weather it really is a great space. Gracias Don Felipe
This restaurant has been serving authentic excellent tasting tapas type food for many years. It was as good as ever and wonderful to see it reopening after the lockdowns.
Long may it continue.
We're delighted to be back and happy to see so many of our loyal customers from over the years as well as new customers who are still discovering us. We celebrated 34 years in business recently and it's been great to reopen our doors again and we're looking forward to the next 34 years! Don Felipe
We had a table for 6 for lunch yesterday. We sat outside which was our choice having originally booked inside. The restaurant were happy to change this with no fuss. The service was excellent. The food was good and reasonably hot. Both the red and white Rioja wines were nice. The Estrella beer was too, if a little pricey. Overall, it was a very enjoyable meal, plus good value, and we would recommend a visit.
Thank you the kind words. As a family-run, independent restaurant we work hard to deliver great service, delicious food and keep the prices reasonable. We're delighted you appreciated it. Hasta Pronto! Don Felipe
Really quick and friendly sevice. The food was delicious and the large portions considering the low price. I recommend the paella
Thanks Kelly. We really appreciate the feedback. Come back for some more Paella soon! Don Felipe
Great experience, friendly staff and the food was incredible!!
Gracias! Thanks for the 5 stars!!
Great service - took our order quickly and came quickly whenever we wanted attention. Otherwise left us alone which was perfect.
Perfecto! Thank you for the feedback and the 5 stars!
