Does London need another tapas restaurant? Probably not. But Rambla is a pretty useful restaurant to have in Soho. It’s that back pocket restaurant that you’re going to default to when you need somewhere chill for lunch, or somewhere chill for a date or somewhere chill because the wait for a table at Barrafina down the road is too long. There are no big surprises on the menu, but they do manage to pack a lot more flavour into their palomos prawns and rice stuffed calamari than your average tapas joint. We also highly recommend ending your meal with the warm apricot & almond coulant. It’s the kind of dessert that converts someone who isn’t all that into dessert into someone who very much is.
