Pinchito Tapas 02

Squaremeal Review of Pinchito ?

Pinchito encapsulates the cool, funky side of Spain that has so engaged tapas-loving Londoners. The scuffed-up space is dotted with cracked leather sofas, and there’s an intriguingly offbeat collage of Iberian-related prints on one of the bare-brick walls. The menu is short and sweet, with the usual line-up of tortillas, patatas bravas and pa amb oli (bread with olive oil and tomato) alongside pork belly with mango and black olives, huevos rotos or baby eels with garlic; otherwise, check out the blackboard ‘tapas del dia’ or the cracking trio of set menus (£20/25/30). Thirsty types have a host of cocktails to choose from, including some tempting Spanish-tinged mixes such as the rebujito spritzer made with Tio Pepe, while the wine list features some fine old sherries and bottles from Spain’s new-wave regions. “Fast” service and a “lively” vibe keep things upbeat.

So, so food/service but good atmosphere.

I am not a huge Tapas fan, and the food here hasn't done much to change that view. The food was pleasant enough, but nothing Wow – altho' the Spanish omelette was delicious; the bread was disappointingly bland baguette slices (served with the food – we never got our bread & olives order which may have been different…) The service was not good, things missing things from our order and mistakes made re. drinks. It was a busy Friday night, which was great for atmosphere, but less so for attentive/prompt...

A series of 20 minute wait for everything all night – menus, first round, waiters attention, ordering, next round, then food. Manager is incredible dismissive. Wouldn't bring chairs then walked past with stacks. Come here if you like arrogant staff that will ignore you. Completely unapologetically rude.

We went to Pinchito expecting the usual morbid standard of tapas in London to which there are only one or two exceptions. Now there is clearly another exception to the rule. The food was excellent and the specials menu was different and interesting and also proved to be of high quality, the ox tongue and mango being a highlight. Service was friendly and efficient. The wine list looked impressive and to test it we tried the cheapest wine on the list – if that is good then the rest should be! It...

I visited Pinchito Tapas for my birthday lunch and had the best time ever! The service was slick, with owners Tobias and Valeria most attentive. The whole group agreed that the tapas was outstanding value with favourite dishes being Hanger Steak, Pork Belly with black olives and peach and Octopus with broken potatoes. All washed down with the most amazing jug of Rose Sangria – a creation of Tobias consisting of gin and lychee juice. A hidden gem!!!
