Review on Pizarro

Having made a big impression with his eponymous tapas bar located on the same street, acclaimed Spanish chef José Pizarro, named his second venture Pizarro after a bar his grandfather owned in Talaván. Situated on one of the neighbourhood's most historic streets close to the celebrated antiques market, the restaurant is just five minutes walk from London Bridge station.

The large modern space with exposed brick walls has window seats overlooking the picturesque Church of Mary Magdalen, as well as a communal table and intimate booths for relaxed dining. The open kitchen is behind the long L-shaped marble topped bar decorated with Spanish tiles, open all day for drinks and snacks, guests can perch on stools and take in all the action of the chefs at work.

The 80-seater restaurant showcases a modern take on classic Spanish dishes using the finest seasonal ingredients sourced from Spain and the UK. The menu has a great selection of tapas perfect for sharing or there's more substantial dishes that can be served as starters and mains. Kick off with a duck salad, homemade duck ham, watercress, black olive dressing and hazelnuts before a main course of glazed monkfish, with tomato bread and Jamón. For a sweet finale there's squared apples, apple custard, hazelnuts and cookies or their M&M's, peanut ice cream, chocolate sponge and colours.

Pizarro has an extensive wine list that focuses on Spanish wines, sherries, cavas and Spanish style gin tónicas and Spanish vermút.
