Review on Rebato's

The grand seora of London tapas bars, Rebato's on South Lambeth Road celebrated its twenty fifth birthday in 2009 and it remains one of the most untrendily authentic places of its kind in the capital.

At the front is the bar itself - a dark, intimate, club-like space, with ornate mouldings, thick curtains and tiled floors. Plush seats add a touch of old-time grandeur, and it gets packed to the gunnels with all comers, who love the atmosphere, the wine and the no-nonsense food. Hits from the menu are likely to include boquerones (anchovies in olive oil and garlic), albondigas (meatballs), rinones al jerez (kidneys in sherry) and chorizo rosaria served hot.

Move to the back of the restaurant if you fancy a touch more formality: the dining room is just the place to indulge in Spanish and Continental stalwarts like gazpacho, zarzuela de pescado or duck la sevillana, followed by crme brle.

To drink, start the ball rolling with a glass of invigorating Manzanilla, then get stuck into the splendid house Torres. The rest of the wine list is a bonanza of top-class Spanish drinking.
