Food
Come hungry and with friends, so as to make the best out of this fun-loving establishment. Inspired by Hispanic food markets around the world, La Boqueria’s menu comprises a wide selection of regional cuisine. Who knew that hot fried olives would be such fast friends with edamame? Tapas bars normally conjure up images of endless small plates, but the size of their ‘Son of a butcher man’ dry-aged primal cut steak is overwhelming. In fact, all their mains are more than generous at best and that doesn’t even take into account the ‘Feasting’ section. There’s something on this menu for every appetite size, be it a white anchovy snack on toast or 10 groaning grilled Queen prawns covered in caper salsa fresca.

Make sure you still have space for dessert, though, because although they made name for themselves with their white-chocolate hazelnut gelato cookie Whoopie pie dessert, the G&T tart and chocolate nemesis dessert are equally formidable choices.

Drinks
Their focus and pride comes from their small-batch and natural wine from across all our beloved regions. Each selection extends across the palate to a feeling such as ‘quench’, ‘nourish’, or ‘cleanse’ rather than by the grape. There are tons of names you’ve undoubtedly never heard of but can get by the glass anyway.

Service
Welcoming, knowledgeable and always there when you need them. And, considering how busy the place gets, that’s a feat unto itself.

Ambience
Tapas and good times should be shared and you can do all that swimmingly at this establishment. It’s always packed full of bright buzz, whether inside with the murals and odd tree or outside on the expansive deck.

Best for…
A catch up and a drink with friends

    Evening experience was great advice tapas on everything
    Blown away by the food, an unexpected treat! Can’t fault any of the dishes we had which included Oysters, tapas and dessert! Will definitely be back! Oh and do try their craft tequila!
    Unfortunately, the group of 6 (including myself) who went to La Boqueria for a rare celebration, had a miserable time because of the poor quality of the food. The prawns were decidedly "off" - tasted rotten, with a disgusting "floury" texture, the traditional Andalucia Spanish chicken was over-salted and had too much paprika (drowning out the subtle flavours). The only passable meals were the steaks. The sides were underwhelming - the vegetables were under-cooked to being just off raw and the beans were flaccid and tasted off. The "tapas" portions were tiny. Overall, bad food, which - alongside the sherry, wine and grappa - was over-priced. The manager did nothing about the "off" prawns - not even a complimentary drink or dessert as an apology. Sadly, the "hype" around this restaurant conceals far from fresh food, which is definitely not authentically Spanish (I am Spanish and have traveled to Spain many times and feasted on the food, is badly managed and over-priced. A huge disappointment. I would not recommend it to my worst enemy.
