When you are in London for a week and even if your budget is substantial, you are unlikely to have a sit-down lunch or dinner for every meal. Benito's Hat is a great option. Steps from Covent Garden, lunch was hot, fresh and filling. The interior is very clean and the service friendly. I opted for the "baby" burrito, presumably... More

Both my husband and I ordered a burrito and a beer and it came to just over £20. Not cheap but I think reasonable value. The burritos were absolutely massive, full of good quality, delicious ingredients. We both really enjoyed them and were pretty much stuffed for the rest of the day.

Whole place felt tired and a bit grubby. The loos were grubby, the food looked like it has been stewing for days, the staff were a little lack lustre, used plates were sitting on tables, the food was bland and slipped onto the plates. Hopefully just an off night but I wouldn't revisit.
