Sibling to Fitzrovia’s Barrica, this ‘charming’ little tapas joint has quickly become a dependable Soho star with its high communal tables, warm lighting and chequered floor tiles. It gets full to bursting (and deafening) in the evening, so turn up early to maximise your chances of bagging a seat – and getting proper attention from the mainly Spanish staff. Despite the odd ‘unmemorable’ misfire, the daily changing menu generally delights, with plenty of good stuff including cured sardine fillets with crisp pork crackling, a stand-out salt-cod brandada with duck-egg yolk, wild rabbit with almonds, and marinated lamb with piquillo peppers and aubergine. The enticing wine list offers loads of ‘really affordable’, quaffable sips based on the main Spanish grape varieties, plus some hidden treasures, a good spread of vintages and everything available by the glass or carafe.
