Awarded "Best Spanish Tapas - London” SME Business Awards 2020, El Pirata is a hidden gem serving critically acclaimed Spanish tapas for over 25 years. It has become a firm favourite for those wanting an authentic Spanish experience in London with its wonderful Spanish staff, buzzy atmosphere and great tapas without breaking the bank.
El Pirata ensures that every guest will instantly feel at home through their relaxed, no-frills, warm and inviting atmosphere and friendly staff, some of whom have been at El Pirata since the very beginning. El Pirata brings together the comforting appeal of a central London establishment with the energetic dynamism of a new opening. They have an expansive tapas menu featuring classic, authentic dishes, and recently the menu was reviewed by Zac Whittle, former Executive Chef of Michelin-starred Galvin Restaurants.
El Pirata boast an equally impressive wine list of over 140 wines, all at a very affordable price, particularly for Mayfair. Whether you are dining in the artistic upstairs with a feature bar, in the atmospheric downstairs Cellar with hand-painted mural, or sipping rioja al fresco, El Pirata offers true escapism so you feel you’re in Madrid rather than Mayfair.
El Pirata is tucked away in a corner of Mayfair, a stone’s throw away from Hyde Park and a 6-minute walk from both Green Park and Hyde Park Corner tube stations.
