I went to Jose on Friday night and had a fantastic night. There was a bit of a wait for a table but Herve, who runs the front of house, was really friendly and helpful in finding space. The food was very fresh and tasty and not overly priced but the main selling point is definitely the atmosphere, I could have been in Barcelona.
Dissenting voice here: the place is pretty ugly (OK, plain), it is totally jammed with suits and the food is London Tapas Average (TM).
I have eaten tapas in Barcelona and elsewhere and this is *not* the same. A good comparator would be Spuntino in soho - which is a genuinely exciting place to be and (although not actually tapas), serves small plates which are delicious (amazing in fact).
Donít get me wrong here, it is better than, say, a Chicken Cottage branch, but it is just a bit so so, and in another part of town would be half-empty.
Would you like to go with me?
