Squaremeal Review of Dehesa ?

Like its big brother Salt Yard, light-footed Dehesa flits between Spain and Italy, embracing the best of both worlds. The selection of “dreamy little small plates” allows for a magpie approach, and diners can zigzag their way across the Med, taking in tortillas and pork rillions (“naughty as hell”), then maybe tender ricotta and spinach malfatti, before alighting on zesty ‘nduja croquetas with guindilla alioli. Charcuterie pits Spain’s acorn-fed finest against Italy’s famous Parma, while desserts feature deep-fried milk with cinnamon (“a revelation”). The regional wine list makes inspired reading, but don’t miss the “crazy Salvador Dali brandy in a melting bottle” urges one fan. Dehesa’s corner site is pretty – and well-positioned near Liberty’s; it also wins friends by taking bookings.

Amazing tapas dishes, loved the beetroot and taleggio gratin and shaved wind dried tuna. Not 100% sold on the Chocolate Mousse with Mascarpone, Quince and Honey Waffle desert, though the Warm Almond & Clementine Cake looked great. The Karmis, Contini 2010 went well with the food and was reasonably priced. I will definately be going again.

I love Dehesa. I've been here a few times now and it's been excellent each and every time. Having to book in two hour slots is a bit frustrating, but even with a largish group on my last visit, two hours was plenty to eat ourselves silly and to enjoy a huge variety of the menu. Starting with arrival – once you get in the door past the ever hopeful last minute drop-ins who crowd the doorway, it's cosy, friendly and welcoming. I prefer to sit at the bar or at the back, finding the long tables near...

What hits you when you walk in to Dehesa is not only the immediate warmth but the sense of buzz this little dining room has. No sign of ageing wood and rustic tiling here, Dehesa has taken a modern canteen approach complete with Scandinavian style furniture. Not quite a venue to get up close and personal with your date (unless your lucky enough to bag one of the two window booths), but perfect for a catch up with friends or a quick meal. The menu continues the contemporary approach with clean and...

Not a dud dish. Their Gloucester Old Spot belly pork is a benchmark for how to cook pork (and a perfect illustration of how different properly reared outdoor pork tastes compared to the dry, stringy indoor lean beasts tortured for our low-fat pleasure). Everything perfectly balanced. Terrific service. The most delicious prosecco in town. £60 for two—that bought four shared dishes plus excellent grilled sourdough bread, a shared pud and 4 glasses of wine. London bargain.

A friend and I tried Dehesa randomly on a Wed night, we had both heard of it and new it came from good stock, plus it looked really inviting. We were greeted straight away and offered the choice of counter seating or the communal tables. We chose to sit at the counter, which was great because everytime we needed something the bar tender was right there to assist. We arrived @ about 7pm, and it was quickly buzzing and the ambience was great, and the decor and service allows the feeling of luxury even...
