Squaremeal Review of Comensal ?

A vibrant newcomer to Abbeville Road’s buoyant restaurant portfolio, Comensal has its compass firmly pointed at Mexico. The small front terrace leads to a bar and winding dining area. In warmer months, a folding facade allows the terrace to extend into the interior, where seating is at high long benches or cosier tables. Fresh white walls are enlivened by splashes of bright colours that aim to transport you to sunnier climes. Not to be missed in the bar is the signature Comensal cocktail (Tequila, agave syrup, lime, mint and chilli): a Mojito/Margarita cross with a kick. Food highlights include smoky, nutty guacamole and tacos ‘favoritos’ filled with salty prawns and avocado wedges. Aside from an overpriced helping of enchiladas de mole, every dish bursts with colour and authenticity. Moist, mealy corn-cakes are made and delivered daily by a Mexican lady from Streatham. Long may Comensal continue: it’s the real deal.

a really good addition to Abbeville Road. Light and bright with a small / medium outside space - a gem. Food is delicious - we went for the entire starters / sharing plates - all yummy. its fresh, tasty and well spiced. Service is relaxed but I don't mean sloppy, I mean the staff have time and enthusiasm to talk you through any questions or give recommendations. they made a special non spicy quesadilla for my son !! go in jeans - don't dress up - you will feel out of place in anything...

If you like real Mexican food you should come here – you will not be dissappointed. If you are after tex-mex (chilli / burrito / faijito) – forget it. It tastes freshly home made, it is fresh using authentic ingredients, even the smell reminds me of when I was in Mexico many years ago! They serve very large bowls of guacamole, several tasting/sharing food… I lost count how many we tried – all good, all fresh. It is bright, bustly, sunny. Beautiful tiles decor. Personally, mexican is not my favourite...
