‘Keeping it simple’ is the key to the success of this teeny no-bookings joint from foodie conquistador José Pizarro. Readers adore everything about the place, from the irresistible taverna vibe and ‘happy smiley staff’ to the superlative wines by the glass and big-flavoured tapas plates. To complement your chosen tipple, chalked-up daily specials supplement a menu that mixes faultless standards such as ‘wonderful’ jamón ibérico, tortilla and crunchy croquetas with more adventurous choices including pisto with crispy duck egg, sea bream with morcilla and peppers or baby chicken with potatoes and romesco sauce. José is equally good for a quick nibble with a glass of sherry, a lingering lunchtime siesta or a rollicking supper with friends – no wonder excited punters are happy to pile in and endure the prospect of ‘standing room only’.
