LOLA ROJA CLOSED PERMANENTLY IN MARCH 2016

Find all Spanish restaurants in London

Lola Rojo, a tapas bar for the post-modern era, puts its emphasis on food and wine rather than San Miguels and sangria. It’s a deli as well as a restaurant, so customers have their tastebuds titillated by an attractive display of nibbles. Tapas clichés are a rarity. Yes, there are boquerones and paella, but you’re unlikely to see deep-fried squid rings or boiled mussels. The menu instead offers ‘excellent’ piquillo peppers with garlic prawns, ‘fab’ chorizo lollipops with quince aïoli, and mojama (smoked dried tuna) with a tomato dressing. For a proper Spanish experience, accompany your choices with a glass of fino or amontillado; otherwise, there’s plenty to interest wine enthusiasts on the all-Spanish wine list. Compared to other tapas bars, the bill may seem large, but for the quality of cooking, it’s fairly reasonable.

Tapas with a twist

by   bronze reviewer (6)

Aug 2013

Lola Rojo is one of our favourite local restaurants. The food is inventive and delicious and the menu changes often enough to keep it interesting (while the usual favourites retain their place!). Service is good also. Don't go if you are looking for traditional, rustic tapas – even the patatas bravas have a twist in this restaurant! The sister restaurant Rosita & The Sherry Bar just up the road serves more traditional food and is also excellent.

Editor's pick When you walk into Lola Rojo, it's immediately apparent that this isn't your average tapas bar. The sophisticated decor is cool white, with flashes of red – sort of art gallery meets boutique hotel. The food is an adventurous, modern take on tapas. There are some of the old classics but usually with a creative twist. I've eaten at the restaurant several times since it opened in 2006 and have always been impressed with the presentation of the dishes. Most also taste fantastic but occasionally some...

We had a private party at Lola Rojo's Fulham branch. At the weekend, at lunchtime, you can take over the whole restaurant. It's a bright and stylish venue; the food was very good and bountiful; the service was excellent. It was perfect for us and I recommend it to others. Foodwise, don't miss the padron peppers, potata “brava” or the paella. The wine list is extensive and well-chosen.
