Yes, good to see it 'open', after all the hard work. They are having two weeks of 'soft opening' - with 50% off the food menu!

Rather pleasant for my Birthday :p

Yayay! I walked by it tonight but it looked like the workmen were still in there - although I could see the hams hanging up!

Better get down there before the Tapas Brindisa set discover where it is!!!

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.

A proper Spanish tapas bar and a great addition to Bermondsey Street.

(no connection, just a very happy customer)

It was absolutely packed on Saturday night. Fantastic addition to the area.

Could someone remind me what's going on with his sherry venture?

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?
