About Bar 61

The award-winning, Spanish-influenced Bar 61 Restaurant is a household name in London’s Lambeth. Located on Streatham Hill, this is a charming spot to indulge in famously good tapas and Spanish delicacies (the menu here is dominated by Iberian cuisine), Italian, and French, too. While the genuinely epic selection is for most the star attraction here, you can’t overlook the effort that Bar 61 puts in when it comes to service. Bar 61 is a father-and-son-run outfit, and the duo and their team pride themselves on bringing a personal touch to their business. Its paid off – most guests come to Bar 61 recommended by friends.

Further Information

Lambeth’s Bar 61 is chiefly known for its Spanish tapas menu. It’s a list unbelievably long, with small plates lovingly prepared using a huge range of quality ingredients. The tapas alone are suitable for a main meal shared between friends, and people flock here from all over London just for that, but the full offering doesn’t end there. Starters, soups, pasta dishes, chicken specialties, meet a fish menu prepared with fresh fish delivered daily to Bar 61’s Streatham Hill premises; and that isn’t even the middle. Bar 61 are also known for their veal specialities, such as the mouth-watering, Italian-style escalope Milanese – fried veal escalope with spaghetti – a popular contender.

Alla griglia (grills) are another Bar 61 specialty, and all the dishes here are prepared using prime Scotch beef: sirloin, fillet, T-bone. Then there’s the Italian carni (meats), again prepared using Scotland’s and a variety of traditional methods. And while Bar 61 is one of Lambeth’s most popular restaurants – the bustling, convivial atmosphere itself is enough to recommend it – many treat Bar 61 like a gelateria and can’t resist stopping by for a cone of classic chocolate or lemon sorbet when they’re up Streatham Hill. Bar 61 garners rave reviews from all parts of London, and they’re proud to be able to say that their casual canvassing of unfamiliar faces reveals that it’s their reputation that gets first time customers through the door. Let us recommend you book a table now.

really enjoyed the warmth of the reception by the staff, the atmosphere, nothing was too much trouble, the food was really good quality, like the pulpo, the chipirones all excellent, had a great bottle of rioja. This is not an haute cuisine restaurant and does not pretend to be, but for a lovely night out that cant be bettered. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

There was a very excellent atmosphere; this was helped by the welcoming hosts. Our waiter(the older gent) was very entertaining and ensured we were well looked after. Very intimate restaurant and excellent ambiance. Definitely visiting again.

I was in this wonderful restaurant at the end of September. I found it by tripadvisor and it was a good decision to celebrate the anniversary of me and my girlfriend there. The dinner was very tasty, but the best thing was the service!! If I travel over again to London, I will visit the Bar 61 absolutely again.

We were brilliantly well looked after but a generous and hospitable waiter. He gave us sound advice about the number of dishes for Tapas to prevent us from ordering too many and spending too much. He reassured us that if the wine was not to our liking he'd change it. And we were given complimentary fruit and liquor at the end. The décor is old school. I'd change that. The food was solid without being spectacular, though the calamari rings were superb. It was great value for money and a wonderful experience. We'd definitely go back. And this time we might take the kids.

I will write in Italian to explane my top rate ......una osteria, un piccolo ristorante, un posto simile ad una casa di amici che ti accolgono......vino buono accompagnato da gustose tapas hanno trasformato un compleanno in un momento intimo e gioioso.... costo con una buona bottiglia e tante tapas circa 30 pound a persona.....grazie ai proprietari e chi ci ha servito facendoci sentire a casa! Non uno deo soliti ristoranti inglesi senza anima.....qui ne hanno...top

Fantastic service with the friendliest staff I think i have ever met. Very sociable and the food- oh it was soooo good! Dont be fooled by the small tapas meals seriously it fed 6 people well enough with a veriety of dishes. Tapas not your cup of tea? Theres always main pasta courses and a lovely surprise if its your birthday on that day too! All in all a fantastic experience and I would definitely recommend Bar 61 to someone who wants to try something different for a change.

the owner and his team were incredible, giving me and my girlfriend the best service in London I've ever had. They organized a surprise birthday for her swiftly upon my mention of it. Simple and cosy atmosphere, which I recommend to all! The prices are very honest and the food is deli shoots. Have a go at the impressive variety of tapas, the local dish :) I will very certainly go back.

The TripAdvisor reviews for this restaurant are all you need to see to know what you're in for. Lovely decor and atmosphere, very friendly staff, and absolutely fantastic food. Large portions, and every dish just tasted fantastic. We shared 8 tapas dishes between 4 people which was a perfect amount. The home made sangria was the best I've ever tasted too! Will be going back very soon.

A very pleasant visit. The food was cooked to a very high standard, ambience was excellent and the staff were so attentive and pleasant. I enjoyed my visit and will continue to dine there. I have recommended to friends and family who have also visited and found it to be just as nice as I said. Really, really good. Sylvia G
