I called my restaurant Pizarro after my grandfather. He had a bar called Pizarro in Talaván. Seeing that name above the door is very special for me.
The full-sized restaurant is one block away from my sherry and tapas bar, José, on Bermondsey Street. At the front there is a bar, offering a great selection of sherries and Spanish wines, with a spotlight on cavas, Spanish style gin tónicas and Spanish vermút.
Here, at the window seats overlooking the lovely church of St Mary Magdalen or at the long communal table or at the bar itself, you can have a drink and graze on snacks, cheese, cold cuts and special tapas all day long. At the rear is more formal restaurant seating – tables for 2 and 4, banquettes for 4-5, a large communal table for 8-10 people and a private dining room for 8-10 people.
The restaurant seating is open for lunch and dinner in the evening on weekdays and all day on the weekend. When the restaurant area is open, the restaurant food menu is available in both the restaurant and the bar.
We offer a selection of small and more substantial dishes that can be served as starters and mains or as tapas for sharing. As usual, I want to bring you delicious food with bright new flavours – the season’s best on a plate. A sample menu is here.
We take reservations for lunch on dinner on the restaurant and private dining tables, but hold the bar seating back for walk-ins.
