Squaremeal Review of Capote y Toros ?

Sister site to the grown-up Cambio de Tercio next door, Capote y Toros is everything you’d expect from a younger sibling – louder and boozier, but with all the same quality in its DNA. Prepare for an Andalusian assault on the senses, courtesy of the pink and yellow colour scheme, the wall of framed bullfighting pictures and the swinging hams. This highly animated dining room becomes a flamenco-soundtracked chapel to ham and sherry as the evening gets going. Grab a table or hover under the wall-mounted barrel ends, and pick from a line-up of 125 sherries: from straw-coloured and salty manzanillas through crisp, boozy amontillados, to glasses of sweet Pedro Ximénez. In contrast to Cambio’s envelope-pushing cuisine, the menu here plays it straight. Expect classic tapas dishes such as Spanish omelette with chorizo; lamb shoulder casserole with oloroso; the speciality homemade cod sausage with Padrón peppers – and, of course, a mouth-watering choice of killer ibérico hams.

Editor's pick I arrived to Capote y Toros not knowing what to expect and, most notably, disliking sherry. This popular, buzzing, lively local place is excellent all round. The tapas is sublime (the reviewer who commented on the duck liver was spot on – my favourite dish of the evening and so good we had it twice!). As for the sherry, I'm a total convert. The barman and waiter both made excellent recommendations and we journeyed through sherry selected for our taste. Perfect for a date, a dinner for two or a...

I like Capote y Toros as soon as I walk in and the friendly waiters pop me on a barstool, hang up my coat, choose a sherry for me, and smile whilst I wait for my friend who is 20 mins late. There are no reservations and the queue is growing but when my friend arrives we are ushered straight to our table. The food, all traditional and authentic Spanish tapas fare, is worth any wait. Absolutely everything was absolutely delicious but particular mention must go to the duck liver (light like a foie gras...

I have to just say how impressed I was by the lastest offering to the Old Brompton strip from the same owner that gave us ‘Cambio de Tercio’, ‘Tendido Cero’ and ‘Tendido Cuatro’ (2 out of 3) of which are located virtually next door to one another. Capote y Toros is a small space with perhaps 25 covers maximum, with walls lined with over 100 different labels of sherry from dry clear variety to the deeply dark and syrupy aged types. I had accidentally gate-crashed a dinner and sat perched on the edge...
