‘Ole!’ cries the menu at this matador-themed bodega next door to grown-up sibling Cambio de Tercio – so bag a stool beneath the mounted oak barrels, admire the vivid pink and orange walls, and revel in a 100-strong list that offers an education in the art of sherry. To accompany, there is a stellar selection of charcuterie and top-drawer tapas ranging from acorn-fed ibérico ham or salmon tartare with Padrón-pepper alioli to Galician octopus, oxtail and white-bean stew, or chorizo-crusted cod in sobrasada with courgette carpaccio – Spanish beauties that are guaranteed to brighten your mood. For afters, keep it savoury with the Spanish cheeseboard or sweeten things up with mandarin sorbet, yoghurt and blackcurrants. Staff navigate the bustle with ease, although the no-bookings rule means that you’ll probably have to wait for a table.
