In a street full of ever-changing restaurants, tapas bar Barrica is a long-lasting stalwart throwing out a welcoming glow from its wood, marble, and yellow-walled interior. It’s a warm, busy place with tables at the back and high tables and stalls at the front. Pop in for cured meats and a sherry or reserve a table for the full whack. The food is staunchly Spanish, as are the stonkingly-good wines. Get going with the padrón peppers or some Ibérico ham then launch into the likes of octopus with poached egg, chicken livers with Pedro Ximenez sherry, or charcoal-grilled quail with fennel. The service is fast, the food and booze is free-flowing so you’ll be easily swept along by Barrica’s special ambiente español.
