This restaurant is amazing and everyone should go! I went to the Canary Wharf one as it's near where I live with my boyfriend – we went there to celebrate our 2-year anniversary, which just happens to be New Year's Eve so we were worried we might not get a table. But they had 7pm available… We were greeted by smiling friendly faces and shown to our table through a really beautiful, extremely high-ceilinged interior – quite awe-inspiring! Absolutely beautiful building full of wonderful old Spanish posters on the walls and impressive wine bottle installations up to the ceiling! The service was perfect – staff were around when you needed them but hovered politely at a distance so no sense of crowding or interfering. I've never seen such smiley and polite staff! Customer service is just excellent. The food is absolutely to-die-for; we're vegetarians and had lots of choice on the menu, not just one option like a lot of places. We chose patatas bravas (wonderful mildly-spiced sauce and beautifully soft potatoes), traditional Spanish tortilla (with soft caramelised onion in the middle – bliss!), and a slice of toasted bread that was a bit like baguette and was topped with cheese, asparagus, softened onion, and truffle oil (words cannot describe how delicious this was, the subtle combinations of the flavours has to be tasted to be believed). Dessert was a delicious surprise – my boyfriend had a combinaion of rice pudding and creme brulee, which he loved (I don't like rice pudding but I tried a bit of this and I could be converted!), and I had whisky cake (I'd never even heard of whisky cake before this!) with a little pocket of honey and almonds, a blob of vanilla pod ice cream and topped with loads of vanilla foam which was soft and creamy like the softest whipped cream you have ever tasted… Well, the phrase ‘food orgasms’ was invented for this place I reckon! The prices were very reasonable too, about the same as most good tapas restaurants (which was a very pleasant surprise for the heart of Canary Wharf), and we also had a glass of rioja (crianza) which was expensive but so very worth it – rich and full-bodied with a great depth of flavour. It was altogether an amazing experience and I urge everyone reading this to try it out, ASAP! We'll be going back there as soon as we can :)
