Square Meal Review of Meson Don Felipe ?

Established in 1987, this raucous tapas restaurant is a weathered institution that still manages to pack them in every evening, with regular full houses come the end of the week. Its location near Waterloo’s theatres may be part of the draw, but most reckon Don Felipe’s success is down to its irrepressible vibe & laissez-faire attitude. The food has its ups & downs, & service isn’t always tip-top, but reasonable prices more than make up for any shortcomings. Pull up at the bar if you’re tight on time, order a glass of chilled Spanish white & nibble your way through some hot, fried bacalao with aïoli, patatas riojanas with chorizo, tuna croquetas or chicken livers in sherry sauce. If you’re lucky, dinner may come with a side of live flamenco music.

    The Funky Truth :: El fright night

    A couple of years’ back, we went for some food at a place called Meson Don Felipe, a tapas restaurant on The Cut, near Waterloo. It was nice, but I couldn’t remember much as it was a kind of dinner meeting to discuss our landlord, who was selling our beloved house in East India. Minds were elsewhere, and so a second visit has been well overdue. Opened in 1987, M.D.F. (as we will refer to it now) is the self-styled ‘original’ tapas bar in London, and walking in there, you certainly get the feeling that it is knocking on a bit. The walls are bright red, punctuated only with Spanish fashion prints and clunky Mitsubishi air-con units that look like they’ve come straight from Cheryl Baker’s living room...
