El Pi­rata

Where London - - Best Of London Dining -

For more than 20 years, El Pi­rata has hit the spot as Lon­don’s top restau­rant for tra­di­tional Span­ish tapas. Lo­cated in the heart of May­fair, it’s the per­fect place for a true taste of the Mediter­ranean in a chic yet friendly set­ting. In­for­mal, in­ex­pen­sive and, above all, au­then­tic – the restau­rant uses the finest Span­ish produce, in­clud­ing jamón ibérico, to cre­ate its clas­sic dishes. Celebrity fans in­clude Brian May and Johnny Depp, and food crit­ics are unan­i­mous in their praise, de­scrib­ing it as a ‘Span­ish gem’ ( Za­gat) with ‘sur­pris­ingly good prices’ ( Har­den’s), and ‘a favourite with May­fair’s Span­ish com­mu­nity and con­verts to the new Ibe­rian cause’ ( SquareMeal). Mon-Fri noon-11.30pm; Sat 6pm-11.30pm; closed Sun. 5-6 Down St, W1J 7AQ. T: 020-7491 3810/7409 1315. www.elpi­rata.co.uk. Sta­tion: Hyde Park Cor­ner/Green Park
