Barrafina Dean Street

26-27 Dean Street, LONDON, W1D 3 LL

2 rosettes

When there is no time to linger over dining, tapas is often the answer, and while the term nowadays covers anything that comes in pocket-sized portions, the original Spanish article remains the bedrock. Barrafina is a prime exponent of the genre. A long marble counter facing an open kitchen is the setting for gorgeous mouthfuls of strong savoury satisfaction - ham and cheese croquettes, Iberian pork ribs, pan-fried skate with tapenade and capers, herb-crusted rabbit shoulder. It's served efficiently and with dispatch, though the no-bookings policy means you may have to wait your turn - but what better opportunity to kick back with a glass of manzanilla?
