Pizarro in Bermondsey is José Pizarro’s second in the area with his original tapas bar one block away on Bermondsey Street. The restuarant is an homage to José's grandfather who had a bar by the same name in Talaván in the West of Spain.
The restaurant brings traditional Spanish cuisine to the heart of London with its menu of small tapas plates—perfect for sharing—or more substantial options with a choice of starters and mains. Diners can enjoy quality, seasonal Spanish produce cooked in an open kitchen that shows off José Pizarro’s passion and Spanish influence.
Up first on the menu is the selection of tapas dishes, titled Pica Pica. This includes daily changing croquetas, padròn peppers and Jamón Ibérico. Moving onto starters, there is a range of salads on offer as well as seaafood options including clams in a spicy sauce and grilled squid in a Spanish sherry sauce. Of course, the Spanish influence continues into the main courses with a vegetarian option of wild mushroom rice, apple, fino and soft sheep cheese. Ibérico pork makes another appearance in the main options as well as a sharing dish for two that features suckling lamb served with patata al caliu, yoghurt allioli and fresh herbs.
If you're visiting in a large group of more than eight diners, Pizarro offers different set menus that can be pre-ordered. You can opt between a £50 or £60 set menu with both featuring an array of tapas dishes, starters, main courses and desserts. Pizarro also presents a set menu perfect for meat-lovers with its £100 suckling pick option that, of course, makes a feature of Jamón Ibérico, Spanish cold cuts, Catalan sausage and marinated pork.
Alongside the range of desserts is a fantastic list of dessert wines that are selected to match each dessert choice. With a hugely extensive drinks menu, guests are spoilt for choice with the selection of Spanish wines, brandy, whisky and liqueurs. Non-alcoholic diners are not forgotten with a little selection of classic mocktails.
