Inspired by Barcelona’s iconic market ‘El Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria’.


Inspired by Barcelona’s iconic market ‘El Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria’, this restaurant combines authentic dishes, good value and contemporary decor to delight Londoners with top quality Spanish food and wine.


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.


The owners recommend people stop by to relax with a nice glass of wine and enjoy some of Boqueria’s specialities, such as its amazing suckling pig, Iberian ham ‘croquetas’ and Galician-style octopus.
