Boqueria opened in Acre Lane in December 2011, since when it has been pleasing customers with the best of Spanish gastronomy. A mix of contemporary and minimalistic deco by interior designer Erico Navazo gives customers the impression of stepping into a Spanish city. This simple and welcoming location, with its wooden tables and chairs neatly lined up, adds the feel of a traditional Spanish restaurant to the London food scene.
