I took my partner here for a special treat, after stumbling upon it some weeks ago on a walk. Wow! What a find! El Pirata has a very warm ambience, and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. We sat upstairs where the decor was cosy, but we noticed the downstairs space was well-lit and spacious. The bottle of wine we ordered was wonderful, and we had 6 tapas dishes - all fresh and delicious. We actually ordered the octopus twice, because it was SO good! I think they were extra generous with the second plate. With coffee, it was under £90, which with a good bottle of wine, was great value! Some friends are planning to book soon. We will continue to recommend it - AND we won't leave it long before we come back ourselves!

Super Tapas in Mayfair Good sized tasty Tapas - the wine list is broad and well chosen. Service is great, well paced & helpful. Good attention to social distancing.

My first time out to a restaurant for 6 months. Been going to El P ever since it opened and the food, service and ambience was as good as ever. The food fantastic as usual. Hope to get back there next week!

Enjoyed our dining experience. Food was delicious. Staff friendly. A bit noisy in the basement but that seems to be the norm in these basement West End restaurants. The Paella in particular was delicious. Will go again.

We paid £30 for about 10 dishes and drinks! This was because of the 50% off but I actually would have paid full price it was so good!

Couldn’t have been happier with our evening at El Pirata. The staff were simply delightful and the food just did not disappoint. We were so so impressed. So many things to comment on, however I’d certainly recommend the croquettes and the jamon - unbelievable! Will be back as soon as possible. Such a beautiful hidden gem in Mayfair and so glad to have found it!
