Spanish & Hispanic Restaurants in Clapham
Whether you are looking for tapas, paella or a little summer gazpacho – we list the best Spanish restaurants in and around Clapham.
57 Venn Street, Clapham SW4 0BD
Cosy (very) tapas restaurant conveniently located opposite Clapham Picturehouse, making it a good spot for post or pre-cinema. Recommended.
192 Acre Lane SW2 5UL and 278 Queenstown Road, SW8 4LT
Great value and good quality tapas here. Lots to choose from, plenty of simple dishes that only the Spanish seem to do well plus some less well known ones. Recommended.
Buena Vista Cuban Café and Cocktail Bar
19 Landor Road, Clapham SW9 9RT
Open until 2am on Friday and Saturday and with live music Thursday-Sunday nights, this is the place for a fun night out. Rum is a speciality plus there’s a Cuban/Hispanic influenced menu.
Carmen Bar De Tapas
6 Clapham Common South Side, London, SW4 7AA
Good value tapas in an authentic Spanish restaurant.
66-68 Clapham High Street, Clapham, SW4 7UL, T: 020 7627 2173
La Rueda has been here long before Clapham High Street became buzzing with restaurants and bars. Lively atmosphere but probably not the best Spanish food in Clapham.
78 Northcote Road, SW11 6QL, T: 020 7350 2262
Our current favourite Spanish restaurant in South West London. Stylish, buzzy and welcoming, the restaurant is popular at weekends so booking is recommended. The food is a notch above the usual tapas in London. We’ve yet to try their sister restaurant Rosita & the Sherry Bar (see below) but have heard good things.
The Balham Lounge
76 Bedford Hill, Balham, SW12 9HR, T: 020 8673 8787
Neighbourhood, family owned tapas restaurant which gets good reviews. We’ve yet to try.
Rosita & the Sherry Bar
124 Northcote Road, SW11 6QU, T: 020 7998 9093
Sister restaurant to Lola Rojo (above), the style is more rustic – although still contemporary – and the concept is a tapas menu with sherry pairings. More substantial dishes are also available. If you need to brush up on your sherry knowledge – and let’s face it, who doesn’t? – they also offer sherry tasting classes.
48 Webbs Road, London SW11 6SF, T 020 7228 4465.
This is a small but delightful café and deli open during the day and specialising in organic Spanish food including Spanish hams, cheeses, oils and vinegars, olives and more. There’s one large table in the centre and a few outside. The service is extremely friendly and coffee is good.
