2nd time at BARRAFINA and once more impressed by the quality and taste they offer. All guest seated around the kitchen adds to the authentic feeling. Friendly service. No reservations in this hotspot, so prepare to queue (with cava and tapas)

I keep coming back. No doubt the best restaurant in the city. No reservations so you will have to queue for a table But trust me , it's worth every minute of your wait. The food is to die for

The long queue to get a seat is well worth it. From the Squid Ink Croquetas, the beautiful Tuna Tartare and the Octopus with Capers to the amazing Chicken Thigh with Romesco sauce, every single dish I’ve tried there was absolutely spot on. The staff...More

Dear Seamus1973, Thank you for your question. I'm afraid we don't have high chairs at our restaurants, we just have our high stools. Thanks, Connie Cooper (PR & Marketing)

Barrafina is an authentic Spanish tapas bar located in London's Soho. It serves a traditional but contemporary, regional a la carte menu and there is a daily blackboard of specials, created by Executive Head Chef, Barragan Mohacho. Barrafina operates a first come first serve queuing system, and does not take reservations for their 23 stools. However, part of the fun of dining there is eating little bites and sipping on something delicious while making the line. The kitchen is open and guests are close to all the action and drama while their food is prepared.
