Wouldn’t it be nice to grab your things, hop on a plane, head to Spain and leave all your troubles behind? Sadly, that’s not always possible, but thankfully you can escape to La Plaza Spanish Tapas Bar, a Notting Hill institution that provides a fun communal dining experience which will make you feel just as though you’ve landed on the Spanish riviera, away from the hustle and bustle of London just outside. Found on Tavistock Road only moments from Ladbroke Grove underground station, La Plaza is one of our top picks for casual Spanish dining in the Big Smoke.
From tapas for one to big sharing plates for the whole gang, London’s La Plaza Spanish Tapas Bar makes sampling and nibbling better than ever before. Unlike the stuffy tapas-bar trend going on nowadays, La Plaza keeps it casual, offering a cosy and relaxed place to enjoy some freshly tapped beer and authentic Spanish cuisine with friends or family. No matter what the occasion, be it lunch, dinner, snacks or drinks, this Notting Hill Restaurant down Tavistock Road is doing things right, with an added dose of Spanish pizzaz!
You can’t go wrong with the tapas at La Plaza in London’s Notting Hill, and with so many incredible options available, you’ll be spoilt for choice – there’s patatas bravas, tortilla Espanola, pimentos de padron, albonigas (meatballs) and much, much more where that came from. Bigger appetites can indulge in their very own main course, with favourites like the salamillo a La Plaza (fillet steak in a cream, brandy and wine sauce) or pollo a la plancha (grilled garlic and herb chicken) weighing in on the heavier side. There are, of course, plenty of charcuterie and cheese platters to go around, plus a wide range of premium Spanish wines to wash them all down. Ready for a flavour fiesta?

We loved this place. Visiting from the U.S. and wanted a neighborhood place. Outstanding food and very good service.
Went here on a Saturday evening. Lovely food. Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Even better that it was full of Spanish people so you know the food must be good!
Great food again. The starters were excellent and the steak was exceptional. Staff friendly and efficient. And it's nice to eat in a Spanish restaurant that is patronised by Spanish people.
