La Rueda has been wheeling out Spanish food and hot club nights since the mid-1980s from its Clapham High Street premises, for far longer than most in this now-vibrant area of London. La Rueda did tapas before tapas were trendy, and they continue to serve happy guests with fine wine, great cocktails, and unmissable opportunities to dance the night away, including their popular Sunday Latin club nights, perfectly matched with their house paella.
La Rueda’s original outpost along Clapham High Street is still going strong, decades after kickstarting the Latin and Spanish tapas craze in London. Midway between Clapham Common and Clapham North stations, La Rueda offers the area’s best tapas and Spanish cuisine for casual, intimate dining during the week, late-night parties come the weekend, and a great selection of classic and contemporary Spanish wine alongside delicious cocktails. If you’re looking for a great deal on Spanish food south of the river, be sure to check out La Rueda’s early-bird and group dining specials.
La Rueda has been around the block, and with such a wealth of experience when it comes to serving London with superb Spanish cuisine under their belts, it’s no surprise that their menu is as long as it is. It begins with fresh and traditional pescado (fish) dishes, proceeds with authentic Iberian rice and noodles, crosses carnes, and ticks off an incredible number of tapas plates for sharing. There’s a great lunch menu, too, and an affordable three-course party menu for when you book a party at Clapham High Street’s longest standing Spanish. Clapham locals also flock to La Rueda when day turns into night – the weekends here are all about the party.
Excellent tapas, especially the Gambia’s a la plancha & pulpo, & bottle of Albariño (£24.95) backed up by efficient staff amounted to a most enjoyable evening.
Thank you so much the food was very good the services was amazing. My friends and I we love it we hade a lovely nigth looking forward to see u guys again.
The Galician pulpo and squid was cooked to perfection! The staff were very quick and friendly and I look forward to easting there again soon!
Have been going for several years. Consistently tasty tapas with all the favourites readily available, friendly staff and good wine like the El Coto Rioja
The food was ok, we had to send both the calamari we ordered back as they were overcooked and cold, the rest was all good. However when we first got there I ordered a bottle of Champagne, when that was finished I asked for another, I noticed when I was pouring a glass that it was Cava and thought that maybe someone else on the table had ordered it. We ordered another 2 bottles after that. When the bill arrived I saw that we had been charged for 4 bottles of Champagne, when we actually had 1 champagne and 3 Cava. I think they were trying to pull a fast one and hope we didn't notice! I managed to get the bill changed, but beware, check that you get champagne if that's what you order!
Food was absolutely fantastic! Only minor hiccup is that one of the many items we ordered wasn't put through so it had not even started to be cooked by the time we questioned its whereabours. However, we were so full of all the other delicious food that we ordered that we just decided to cancel it. So no harm done. Thanks to all for a wonderful lunch.
Me gusta la comida de este lugar, pero la atención al cliente debería mejorar y mucho. He ido hoy a mediodía y tres veces he pedido una bandeja de pan que no ha llegado nunca. Casi termino de comer sin tener nada para beber porque también se les ha olvidado... No sé, la comida hoy ha sido escasita para mi gusto, aunque de sabor no tengo ninguna queja. Entre eso y la atención... No he salido muy contenta. Tampoco entiendo porqué no tienen algo de postres. Me parecen raro, en un restaurante al menos unos helados o algo de postre deberían tener, creo yo.
There was no problem with our Quandoo reservation. The restaurant has a Spanish feel and atmosphere. We ordered a selection of tapas, 12 between 6 of us. They all arrived very quickly and together, it would have been better if they were spread out a little. All excellent though. Recommended
The ambiance was good, the waitstaff was welcoming and the sangria was really nice! We were a group of seven and the team managed us really well! We asked the waiter and kitchen to recommend tapas for the table, and we were really pleased with the recommended dishes. Would definitely recommend La Rueda! Thank you team La Rueda!
The food was very good and tasty. We would definitely visit again. It was quite a busy night as it was Christmas party season however when it came to getting the bill, this took quite a bit of time. That was the only disappointment of the evening. Aside from that, we had a great time!
