Tucked away but well worth seeking out, very popular even midweek and excellent Spanish food/feel. Certainly not a simple tapas bar but a place with real atmosphere.

Ordered chicken and it was very bland. The garlic bread was dripping with olive oil. Found the place was expensive for what they served. Not a great experience.

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
