SquareMeal Review of Gremio de Brixton

Located in the vaulted crypt of St Matthews Church in Brixton, this tapas joint and good-time venue from the Antic London group has filled the space left by Babalou. Combining a traditionally stocked Spanish bar with dancing, broadcast sporting events and various forms of entertainment, it’s already attracting local attention as bands and DJs do their stuff into the early hours. Punters can soak up their Spanish beers and gutsy wines with some authentic Iberian small plates. As for the place itself, Gremio feels atmospherically deconsecrated, with sprawling brick arches, beat-up tables, lamps, religious pictures and a tiny Catholic shrine in one corner, complete with tapered candles and icons.

A group of 6 of us tried out Gremio on a Sunday evening about 7.30pm. Not many people there, though I couldn't decide if that was before the rush, or after it. We had a wide variety of freshly-finished tapas - patatas bravas in a good hot sauce, gambas in garlic, calamari, croquetas, lentils with sausage, suckling pig, manchego cheese with tomato jam. All nicely prepared, looked good, and tasted good too; with a couple of bottles of respectable Spanish wine (Eduardo Berme at £23.50 each), it came out at about £44 a couple which was about right. (NB:One of the Men's toilets had no door which made it a little more rustic than expected).
