It is well located and is opened until late in the night. Went for dinner and was very pleased with the food and specially the attention of Ana, one of the waitresses. Real spanish food!

The Old Vic Theatre is 5 minutes walk away and even closer, the Cervantes Theatre. We went at 6pm and were out in time for a 7.30pm show. Gambia street is not well sign-posted, but is 3 minutes walk from Southwark tube station. Good wine...More

So happy to have found this restaurant. Understated (we sat in the garden), in a typically Spanish way with minimum attention to decor, and exceptional food. The chicken livers are to die for, but every single dish was sensational! (I even got the chef to...More

Had dinner here last Friday. Haven’t been in here for many years (& it’s still good) Ordered a selection of Tapas, including octopus, tortilla, pimentos de pardon, etc. Cheeky bottle of house red. All good.

This is an excellent place with authentic Spanish Tapas. Ham croquettes were fantastic, but so too was everything else. Nice atmosphere, reasonably priced and excellent service. Nice courtyard garden for summer evenings.

Fantastic authentic Spanish food and cosy atmosphere. It’s hard to find a real traditional tapas bar with such good quality! Some recommendations would be the Pimientos de Padrón filled with crab meat, the Arroz a banda (paella) and Spanish omelette.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
