Iberian lovers eat your heart out. This Shoreditch staple has been curing and cooking hearty meals of seafood and meat for 15 years. It’s not the cheapest in the area but there’s a reason it’s lasted so long (and why it’s on so many people’s ‘great places for a first date’ list). From Spain, Portugal and even Mozambique, the menu is a veritable one-way flight to tempted tastebuds, morish mouthfuls and satiated bellies. Offering a wine menu that rivals most, choose from cool and fresh Atlantic wines to warm spicy Mediterranean drops. Surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, we’d recommend a lunch booking. Bring on the summer!
