Restaurant description

Bringing together Mexican and Spanish flavours on the one menu, Condesa is a buzzing little tapas joint in Covent Garden. Fusing together these two cuisines in an intimate venue, there is also counter seating up at the bar, which serves up popular cocktails and sherries.

The Condesa menu is perfect for sharing, and offers up all kinds of Spanish and Mexican surprises. A selection of cured meats and artisan cheeses are perfect to enjoy with one of the red wines from the bar, moving on to exotic, spicy treats such as tuna tartare with avocado, habanero oil and chipotle aioli in black ink corn tostadas. Other popular sharers include sliders made with Iberian tenderloin, with veggie options like smoked beetroot carpaccio, and blue cheese salad.

Finish off at Condesa in Covent Garden with homemade sweet almond cake, or sample a sherry from the bar. There is also a cocktail list with exotic Mexican twists, and a concise wine list with bottles from around Spain.

An intimate tapas restaurant with an eclectic Mexican twist, Condesa is a 4-minute walk from Covent Garden Tube Station.

    Wow what a fantastic little place. We booked a table as there were 6 of pre theatre. We were greeted by a friendly and warm natured waiter who looked after us and actually all the tables excellently. He was enthusiastic and and fun and really made the experience and its the type of place that we would all recommend. Every dish was so tasty and at a high quality. One of the group was dairy intolerant and we hadnt made this clear but it was no trouble at all and a fresh selection of each tapas was made for her without dairy. The only and very minor suggestion as a vegetarian would be for perhaps just one more hot vegetarian dish to be available on the menu. The vegetarian salads, cheeses, tortilla and pan con tomato were delicious. I was however so jealous of the meat tacos and wished there was a vegetarian option or even some potatoes but we all had such a good time and couldnt fault the food so I really want to say thank you!!!

    good food, but the cooking place is really small therefore you dont get your food at the same time when you are more than two

    Food was nice but the portion sizes were tiny for the price, even taking into account the location. There were two of us and one dish had three tiny little goats cheese balls on. I’m sure they could have spared an extra one without hurting their profits. For the price there should have been a few more!! We paid £100 between us and had to go to a shop for snacks before the theatre. It was very noisy and we were sitting on high stools so hardly silver service. There is better (and more) food to be had at that price in Covent Garden.
