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.

    Great little tapas bar, ingredients are well sourced and well prepared. service is really friendly and welcoming. Wine and cocktails are excellent. It’s close enough to the centre of Covent Garden, it is on the expensive side so be prepared, but I think worth it

    Outstanding tapas and service. Sangria could be better as already dilute and filled with large ice cubes. Would come back again.

    Excellent little tapas bar. Inventive dishes from both Spanish and South American countries. Great service in a cool, cosy restaurant. Tuna Tartar exceptional. Sliders wonderful. Beef cheeks excellent.

    The food is delicious and well prepared but it does not come cheap! Portions are small as they are tapas sized but run 8-12 pounds each. It is easy to rack up quite a bill. But still nice to try but I wouldn’t go back unless someone else is paying.
