It was always going to be exciting re-entering a restaurant after Lockdown 2.0 but we made a very good choice choosing this place. The staff were brilliant and the food even better. Definitely coming back.

Great food, fantastic service and good craft beers on draft. They’ve taken out a couple of tables (compared to before COVID) so there’s much more space between each diner and it feels very safe, in case you were worried it’s a small space. Standout dishes- truffled mushrooms with quail’s egg and octopus with samphire.

A slightly more adventurous twist on the usual 'patatas bravas' fare you get at more traditional tapas restaurants, so if you're looking for tapas with a twist, definitely give this place a go!

We ordered the entire menu aside from the meat and cheese platters. No regrets.
Lovely staff and a selection of good beers too.

First class service, food, and beer. A great selection of craft beer. A good selection of food - shame I didnt have room to try them all!

Very well managed with covid rules.

First time back since lockdown and I'm happy to say it's just as good as ever. Food and drink selection is still brilliant and it remains fantastic value. We'll be back again soon.

Lovely new place to discover, and all socially distant. Great selection of beers, we got some flights to share + a mix of different tapas from the menu. Thought we’d struggle with a limited veggie menu but they had plenty on offer. Food was really good & very friendly service. Will definitely come back again soon.

Delicious food, not as many vege options as I would've hoped (mainly because I want ALL the things) but the cheese selection was very filling so it worked out perfectly! Great beers, the staff were very friendly, helpful & attentive. Looking forward to returning. The stools outside are a rather uncomfortable height with the barrels though, which is why I gave the ambience only 4 stars. Thanks!

Honestly just visit the place. Outstanding staff, food and value. No complaints and this is coming from a man who is relatively hard to please. Brilliant restaurant

Lovely place. Great food, wine, ambience and service.

Let down by the grease and smell of frying though which is a shame as everything else is GREAT!
Clothes smelt of fried oil after and floor and table greasy from the frying.
Not sure how they would do it but need to install a proper extractor.

This place has got it right. The menu is small, but every dish on it is carefully constructed to deliver interesting flavours. Efficient and friendly service plus excellent value make this place a must if you live in the Tooting/Balham area. I am not a huge craft beer fan. The wine carefully selected from Spain is great too.

All in all, it was my first time and I will come again and recommend to my friends and family.
The waiter could have been more enthusiastic and clear about what's on the menu, that is my only fault!

Value for the money I was pleased. We had a lot of tapas and a couple of glasses of wine and it came to a good price and we had a jolly evening.

Nice addition to the local area. Service was good. Range of beers to try which were reasonably priced. Some traditional tapas but creative ones as well - enjoyed all of the items that we tried.

May be a strong statement, but I think this is one of the best tapas restaurants I've been to in London. Food is truly incredible.
Will 100% be coming back again, and again, and again...

There were bugs all over the walls and the chef was not wearing a hairnet. I saw him run his hands through his hair then touch the food he was preparing. Not very hygienic at all.
