As usual very busy but staff made sure we were seated promptly and gave a good recommendation for red wine to accompany the tapas . The tapas on offer is freshly prepared and was very tasty.

Often completely rammed (good for them. doing something right), so we only pop in when passing when its not too full. Been here numerous times. Normally standing room initially, then grab a seat when free. Tapas and sherry (since so few places serve sherry) consistently...More

The positive thing is the food which was good however the service was rude and the site is really small and uncomfortable therefore I conclude this is absolutely too expensive.

Jose's gets busy for dinner, so I went with my family over lunch. They looked after us very well and we very friendly with the kids, but most importantly the food was spectacular.

Haven't been for a while and pleased to say it's as good as ever. The boqeurones, the prawns with chilli and garlic, razor clams and the tomato bread. Superb, thank you.

Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some

foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
