Situated on a corner of the now trendy area of Bermondsey Street this cosy little tapas bar serves up excellent authentic tapas. Opened by José Pizarro with his eponymous restaurant, Pizarro, further up the street.


José is a buzzing spot for an atmospheric lunch or dinner.


This is not a sit down restaurant, but a Spanish bar, where you go to have a drink and some tapas, standing or sitting on stools with a barrel for a table. There are also window stools looking out onto the street.


A typical menu would consist of:


Baby spinach with honey dressing

Gazpacho, toasted bread

Boquerones con vinegre (anchovies in vinegar)

Pimentons de Padrón 

Jamón croquetas (ham croquettes)

Gambas al ajillo (chilli prawns)

Green peas, Manchego, mint oil

Blue cheese croquetas

Patatas bravas

Jamón Ibérico Manuel Maldonado 

Marinated pork loin

Gambas a la plancha

Chorizo al vino

Sea bream, roasted peppers

Pan fried squid

Crema Catalana


There is also a blackboard with the days specials

As well as the excellent wine list there is also a classic sherry list ranging from fino, manzanilla, palo cortado, amontillado, oloroso and pedro ximénez.


Opening Hours are (times are first and last orders):

Mon-Sat 12.00 - 22.30

Sun 12.00 - 17.30


No Reservations...........just walk in!


The best time to grab a stool is around 12.15pm or 4.30pm, the place is small and always busy.


You can now buy José's own pimentón - Extremeño natural pimentón alumado from his own region in Spain, extremadura.
