Amazing! Fabulous restaurant, fabulous clientele and food brilliant. Will definitely be going back! Sangría was also very tasty and meat was succulent and done to perfection.

We had an amazing time. Andy, Eduardo we're excellent hosts! The food and el vino were superb and delicious. The icing on the cake was seeing Gilbert the cat, whom was the real reason we came to London and Columbia Road all the way from Toronto. He put on a great show for us on the street and said hi! Bravo Laxeiro! We will return. Rico and William

Excellent small restaurant. Very good choice of tapas - and great value for money. Large portions - padron peppers, strips of pork loin, rice blackpudding with quail eggs and well aged steak were particular highlights. Very well priced wine - smooth Rioja for £25. Friendly service - all in all an excellent place.

Really enjoyed our visit, enjoyed some of the best tapas we have had in London. Ordered mainly staple dishes like patatas bravas and gambas al ajillo but all were cooked to perfection and very tasty. Great tortilla de espinacas too. Great neighbourhood feel to the restaurant and friendly staff

Absolutely fantastic as always! I normally book a table for two for my partner and me. Today I brought almost all my team from work and our dinner was exceptional. Everybody loved it and will definitely be back! It's great to know that the service and quality will be top notch whether it's a table for two or eight! We really love having this little family run restaurant so close to home. And of course, we'll be back and back again!!

Fabulous food and great value for it. Tiny place, but we were able to book the same day. worth booking, though. Had a fantastic evening and the staff, though clearly hardworking, were great. Would recommend to anyone in the area who wants really delicious and authentic food that isn't pretentious or overpriced.

An absolute find! What a fabulous little restaurant. Make sure to book ahead as its a small and popular haunt. The atmosphere is upbeat but not too lively. Soft music, loads of chatter, attentive staff, utterly delicious food and fab Spanish gin. The king prawns are divine and just how they should be - fresh, juicy and enormous. Well worth a visit.

The atmosphere is great and the food and wine are excellent. The Paella is the best I have tasted inside or outside Spain. You have to book very rarely can you walk in off the street. Great decor - contemporary and relaxed

The food was very flavourful, portions were decent and filling, nice atmosphere. The Sangria was very fresh and if we had more people definitely would've opted for the Paella as every table that had it was raving about it.

Excellent food and service, Spanish traditional food at its best. Highly recommend the pulpo, the avocado & mango salad and the crema catalana. The food is utterly delicious and evokes the memory and taste of the home cooking.

Great as always! Service a tiny bit hectic but we enjoyed the new additions on the menu. The iberico ribs are amazingly good and the cheese board as a cheeky dessert is fantastic! And.... The Montsant Bri wine is just the perfect red for that!

Great quality food as usual but we had poor service today - the drinks took forever and three dishes had gone cold before the final two dishes arrived. You expect tapas dishes to arrive at differ times but not 20 mins apart! The waiter was inattentive to us but happy to chat to the people next to us. It's disappointing as we usually have a great experience at Laxerio.

Good service and very attentive. Good selection of meals. We had fish, which was cooked to perfection. Although it was a platter for two, I think I could have eaten it all on my own. Good ambience. Would definitely recommend .

Great little Galician / Spanish tapas restaurant: this has been a neighbourhood favourite for years. Good food, good wine, cosy atmosphere, friendly staff, great value. And if you're lucky a friendly cat called Gilbert will come and sit with you.

A warm, welcoming atmosphere. Not rushed and the fact that our party arrived at different times was accommodated with ease. Food varied and excellent. The lunch special is very good value.

Really lovely food and nice atmosphere. We loved the white Rioja and garlic chicken. Staff could have been a little friendlier as they seemed to rush around a lot. Still lovely and fab location.

The best tapas in London, without a doubt.. awesome food, great atmosphere and fab staff. And the location is quirky too in a house on Columbia Road, Shoreditch.

Excellent Borth Spanish food which takes you to Galicia from the first bite. Price is OK if you compare with other franchise who claim Spanish food. And the quality is 10 times better

Always delicious, you cannot make any wrong choices from the menu. Being a small place works in Laxiero's favour for an intimate affair with friends or alone.

Fantastic food - best paella I'very had in London. Service was slightly haphazard but it kind of added to the feel of a traditional family run Spanish restaurant.

near perfect small family restaurant - cosy location, friendly staff, great food, good wine selection, we strongly recommend the home made vermouth cocktails as aperitifs.
