Featuring an energetic open kitchen and colourful murals on the walls, Paladar showcases vibrant Latin American dishes, while the long, sleek bar mixes up signature cocktails made with premium spirits.

The Paladar menu is designed to be shared tapas style, and features dishes from all across Latin America. Enjoy nibbles for the table like Andean toasted cancha corn, and green plantain crisps with taquero guacamole, before moving on to small plates of empanadas filled with slow-cooked beef brisket, and seared prawns on blue corn tortillas with mango salsa. There are also larger plate dishes with options like Caribbean lamb stew, and grilled octopus with tempura breadfruit.

To wrap up, indulge in desserts like rich bread pudding made with coconut and sweet potato, and then glazed with rum. From the bar at Paladar in Waterloo there are plenty of South American wines, along with colourful signature cocktails.

A modern, inviting setting to enjoy social sharing meals, Paladar is a 5-minute walk from Elephant and Castle Tube Station.

    Loved everything about this place. It's not a "Latin American restaurant" as such - i.e. it has nothing cliché about it - but a restaurant you could find in Latin America - it reminds me of the high end restaurants in Lima. The menu seemed to be a mix of Peruvian and Cuban influence; beautifully laid out and served. The menu is constructed around the concepts of sea/land/farm etc and the small sizes allow you to sample something from each menu. Prices are reasonable. The service is fantastic and the waiter Yalain was a star. Muchas gracias!

    Amazing restaurant and ambience. The food selection and presentation of each kept us in anticipation. It is fine dining experience for great value. The wine selection was also wonderful as were the hosts and servers. We will be going there again = )

    Great food and wine from this new venue in Elephant. Great to have such a nice restaurant in the area. Staff are super helpful also.

    Extremely welcoming staff. Grilled octopus was the best as good as octopus in The Palomar in SoHo (which was the tenderest I have ever had). All dishes: green plantain, aubergine, chicken and chilli chocolate and chips but all at least good. A real treat for taste buds. Will return. Great start. Keeping developing the menu.

    This is a great local restaurant in an area with depressingly little choice. For anyone interested in Latin American cuisine Paladar would be a destination. We were a late booking 21.45 after a visit to Tate Modern and found the sharing plates menu both interesting and accessible. Courteous, friendly and informed staff made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The extensive 100% South American wine list marks Paladar out as an oenophile destination. A slightly pedestrian prawn ‘special’ was the only flat note of the evening.

    From the moment you walk in to Paladar, you're made to feel at home - the service is superb.

    The food is truly, excellent too - Favourite dishes include the aubergine, the totopos de camaron, the steak, but really everything is excellent. We have eaten here multiple times. Not only were we not disappointed, we were repeatedly surprised and impressed by the flavors and quality across a wide range of dishes.

    Cocktails are varied and excellently prepared. The wine list (all South American wines - a nice variety available via glass and a longer bottle list) is thoughtfully chosen and quite affordable for the quality of wine. Staff recommendations on wine are always spot-on - we have never had a disappointing glass or bottle.

    Overall, this restaurant is an incredible value. You will feel as though you've had an exceptional night out for under £100 for two people. Great lunch specials are also on offer.

    Loved it. Friendly attentive but not hovering service. Lovely food and cocktails. Relaxed and slightly funky interior. Definitely recommend.
