Spanish
Lobos is an exciting new tapas bar also focused on prime cuts of Spanish and British meat. Meaning wolvesin Spanish, Lobos offers a short, sharp list of vibrantly authentic, traditional tapas with ingredients sourced locally, evolving seasonally and therefore dishes that will change frequently depending on what is available from the market. Lobos is a real carnivore’s paradise, think perfectly roasted Iberico pork, slow cooked shoulders of lamb and lightly charred, rosy pink bone in rib-eye to share, all presented simply and cooked to perfection, allowing the pristine quality of the offering to shine through. Please note that any reservations not confirmed with the restaurant may be subject to cancellation 24 hours before booking time.

We had a great dinner here. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. They even treated us to a complimentary glass of champagne as it was our anniversary.....that was a lovely surprise. A truly memorable night.

Have been here many times, never disappoint. The only slight issue is that the place is a little cold which I am sure will feel fine once it’s filled with people!

Quite a nice ambiance and the waitresses were very friendly and helpful. Food was ok, but slightly overpriced, and some of it lukewarm. This was probably not helped by the fact that the table was right by the door. Definitely not the best tapas I've had in London, but not the worst either. The wine was nice.

Overall, ok if you're in the area, but I wouldn't choose to go back.

Really nice restaurant and the atmosphere super energetic. I felt like the food didn't have much seasoning... felt a little bland. However the truffled cheese tapa was AMAZING!

Lovely food and cocktails. Pleasant service, not overbearing, and plenty of staff so you never had to wait long to order. The tables are a bit small, but they work. I would definitely return.

It was great food, even though they got my order wrong it was our first time so we just went with it. The tunnel space above needs more ventilation. Will return for more in the future..

Food was good, not great value for money but good taste nonetheless. Staff was very attentive and friendly, but the guy that sat us was quite rude. The outdoor space is not “cosy” as advertised - they are definitely missing a trick there.

Great food and very prompt service. The only fault I could really find was the 1.5hr booking slot which was adhered to quite rigidly. 2hrs would have been perfect!

Been to Lobos with family and on a date and it’s seemingly perfect for all occasions. The food and drink is fantastic. Reasonably priced for central London with great service from the waitresses, worthy of the service charge.

Overall we had a great time and would return. Service was quick and staff were great. The food was fresh and tasty, some dishes were excellent (sliced pork, croquetas, and paella), while others were a bit more average (chorizo). Wine was also good. On the downside, the downstairs area indoor was very cold as the door was open to keep servicing outdoor. We felt the music (‘80-‘90 pop/rock) was somewhat unfitting and the seating at tables is extremely small. Good place for catching up over a quick bite but not the best comfort for longer conversations or anything over two glasses of wine.

Really expensive place for really small plates and product quality. The cheese plate had not enough cheese, it seems like there was nothing, slices were too thin. Same for the black rice, expensive for not much food to eat and there was not enough prawns, only 1 prawn cut in three small pieces while the price was not £5-£6 but £13! I'm not even talking about the octopus which is £16, but there was nothing to eat for the price! Besides the prices on the website are not the same once you are there. Well overall, we were 4 persons and all of us were very disappointed, we do not recommend.
