Squaremeal Review of Laxeiro ?

‘This is all you want from a local restaurant’ proclaim the advocates of Spanish dining room & tapas bar Laxeiro. Big portions of home-style food, terracotta on the floor, a cat prowling from table to table… it’s the very essence of a provincial Spanish family restaurant. The venue is ‘always buzzing’ & often has a queue out of the door on Sunday, when the flower market’s on – it’s popular with both hipsters & locals. Simply presented raciones (meat, seafood & vegetable) include tapas standards such as chorizo al vino, garlic prawns, tortilla & octopus from the owners’ native Galicia, supplemented by seasonal specials. Paella for two is a forte. There’s plenty to discover on the all-Spanish wine list, however limited your budget: a typically customer-friendly gesture from the Rios family. Booking is advisable, though is not available on Sundays when you really need it.

I was able to try a great variety of dishes (Pieces of leg of Lamb marinated with Mediterranean herbs and spice, traditional Spanish...

Always buzzing and full of locals both Shoreditch hipsters and neighbours. This is all you want from a local restaurant. A comfortable Spanish busy atmosphere!! We ordered a selection of their delicious Raciones, I especially liked the BBQ'd Lamb and the Chorizo with Baby Squid, my girlfriend Loved the Roasted Pepper Salad and the tender sizzling Sea Bass, oh and the Pimientos de Padron all this with plenty of Spanish Bread. This was washed down with a bottle of Albarino that the waiter recommended...
