Settle in to the gorgeous banquettes, order some pan con tomate, a plate of Jamon De Jabugo and a glass of Manzanilla, and peruse the enormous tapas menu (being careful not to set fire to it on the table candle, as I managed to do whilst entertaining clients once). Fino is rightly regarded is one of the finest restaurants in London, quite an achievement in itself, made even more so by the fact that its secluded basement setting is never going to catch any passing trade.
Yes, it can get expensive with all those tempting little plates, and yes the menu doesn't change on a particularly regular basis, but the food is never short of superb and the atmosphere just that right low level buzz that allows conversation without having to raise your voice, yet let's you know that you are in what might have been called a happening place in my grand-parent's time.
