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.
