Great buzzy atmosphere, lovely relaxed environment and friendly service. But all those great things are secondary to the Little Taperia experience. The main draw is the excellent range of favourite tapas with quality ingredients prepared and cooked beautifully - gambas ajillo, pan tomates, jamon Pata Nedra, a sublime tortilla, lamb cutlets and salsa verde to name but a few. Quite simply the best tapas I've yet had outside Spain.

A short walk from the Broadway is the cosy, authentically styled Little Taperia. Ideally situated in this increasingly popular area of South London, The Little Taperia delivers one of the many different styles and taste of food all available close by.

An ideal venue for a light lunch away from the usual ‘gastropub’ and fast food fare. The Padron peppers, patatas bravas and chees selection were all flavourful, while the Scotch eggs, filled with home-made black pudding rather than sausage meat were noteworthy. The pluma pork was delicious and spicy, although a little tepid by the time it reached us.

Friendly, attentive service in surroundings that added to the ambience, despite the proximity of the hustle and bustle of South West London.

I am not a connoisseur of tapas, but my lunch was delicious and I would recommend this little eatery. About £25 per head with soft drinks only, so not budget, but this is London.

Atmosphere and vibe are great- it's quite intimate so good for a date night! Staff are friendly and helpful. The food is all amazing - the octopus and spicy prawns were particularly good! Would definitely recommend!

We went on a Saturday night and they were able to fit us in without a booking despite the restaurant being completely full! We sat at the bar in front of the kitchen, which was great as we were able to see everything and the staff explained all the dishes. They were all really friendly and helpful. All of the food was amazing but the octopus was by far a stand out!
We finished with the churros (a must) and a gift of ice cream with Pedro ximenez port which was incredible!!
Will definitely be back and couldn't recommend enough!

Went as a guest with locals and really liked it. Delicious tapas arrived at well spaced intervals in a relaxed and happy environment. Great service too from Rogério from Brasilia who looked after us all handsomely. Very buzzy place Tooting. Wished we lived closer.
