We had a really great first experience at El Pirata, the croquettes were super good with tonnes of bechamel, the gambas pil pil was delicious, and the bread con aioli is a very generous portion indeed to soak up the oil. The only thing we mentioned was that out octopus was over done, but this was immediately rectified by our waiter. All in all we had a great date night thanks so much!

I have dined at el pirata every time I am in London over the course of 20 years. I am not sure I will ever do so again. I brought a party of 4 people. The chuletas were overcooked, The calamares were tough, the bread was spongy. Very disappointing.

We travel to London several times a year and always make this a must to visit. This tapas bar is definitely one of the best if not the best.

Love this place but waitress was walking around a bit too much and picking dishes/glasses without even asking if we were done.

We have been coming to El Pirata for a number of years precisely because the food and drink, the atmosphere, the service and value for money are all 5 star. Thank you to all the team and we look forward to seeing you again in 2020.

Excellent Spanish Restaurant. Great cozy atmosphere. We used to live in Spain and love Spanish food and the food at El Pirata is as good as any we tasted in Spain. The Pan con Tomato is to die for. The only criticism we would have is that we felt a little rushed by the waiting staff and found that they could have been friendlier. They weren't bad but they weren't outstanding.
