Set a block away from its little brother the original tapas bar “Jose”, Pizarro contributes to make this part of Bermondsey a little corner of Extremadura away from Spain.
The menu is relatively small, simple but filled with flavours: go with as many friends as you can, sit at one of the large wooden tables and indulge over the pica pica, larger than normal tapas-style starters, before even thinking of ordering mains. Everything is good and perfect to be shared but make sure you are not missing out both octopus, jámon Ibérico and the delicious croquetas.
The Spanish-only wine list is not for all pockets but it’s admittedly pretty good and even the cheapest options, such as the intense, perfumed Petit Verdo Juan Gil, go perfectly well with the food.
Ending your perfect Spanish night with a sip of Torres 30 Jaime I brandy should be compulsory.
