After we arrived we had to wait for an hour untill we got a table, then the food really was nothing special. Grilled foods were too greasy, and the food in general was not above any random pub.

We were really looking forward to this restaurant, we’d heard good things and the menu looked great. The food was good, but the portions were tiny for the price that we paid, £30 each and we were nowhere near full. To make it feel even...More

They will do - but from my experience you can't ever reserve tables, so if busy which it normally is you would have to either sit apart, or potentially wait in a queue quite a while until enough seats in a row become... 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.
