AN AUTHENTIC TAPAS BAR AND RESTAURANT IN THE HEART OF MAYFAIR.
Imagine the perfect tapas bar. You know, one of those buzzy, back street restaurants, full of happy customers and cheerful waiters, where the welcome is always warm and the food is freshly made, tasty and reasonably priced, and the wine list is as long as your arm.
Perhaps, in this place, you are just as comfortable sitting upstairs surrounded by Picasso prints as you are downstairs in the atmospheric cellar. Or maybe you want to sit at the bar, chatting with the barman who has worked there for 20 years and knows what wine you like. Or you might even prefer to dine al fresco, imagining the cobbled streets of Madrid, while sitting on a quiet street in Mayfair.
Welcome to El Pirata, the friendly, neighbourhood tapas bar that has been one of the West End’s hidden gems for 30 years.
Our customers – some of whom have been regulars for all of those three decades – are the heart and soul of our business. Our job is to make them feel special, to give them a magical experience whenever they drop by.
We’re a proudly independent business, which means that we don’t cut corners. So we don’t buy in our famed jamon croquetas – we make them fresh every day. Each portion of our Jamon Iberico is hand-carved and brought immediately to your table. It’s harder work, of course, but our customers like it that way – and that’s what El Pirata is all about.
Experience the magic of El Pirata today. Book now, or just walk in … we’ll always try and find a space for you, even when we’re busy.
