Tapas at its best What a lovely place to visit, we booked for a Friday evening but we could have just walked in as the place is of a decent size. We were greeted nicely and offered a range of tables which was a refreshing...change from just being dumped in a corner or put somewhere which was not ideal. Drink order taken as well as food and both came really quickly. The food was excellent and probably in my top 5 of TapasMore

I thought the other reviews were too good to be true, but it is a great place. I was a bit late, but they were very friendly and accommodating. The starters (ham and calimari) were generous and fresh, and the mains - veal cordon bleh...and steak were generous and beautifully cooked. The host is a really good fun, friendly, and a character if you have a joke with him. Loved it!More

We had an absolutely lovely time at Bar 61. We went in for a drink but soon moved up to the restaurant for dinner as the atmosphere was so enchanting. Very traditional Spanish food. A real find in London. Would visit again! The staff are...lovely and treat you like queens/kings, bringing hazelnut liquor and fresh fruit for after a on the house! Brilliant.More

Lovely restaurant in Streatham. A little far from the city, but deserved it. Wonderful food and service. Recommend the starter: Prawns in Garlic. The fruit tray after the meal gave us a surprise!
