As far as Spanish restaurants are concerned, Brindisa is a classic. As well as covering the classics like patatas bravas and prawns with garlic, the restaurant makes plenty of specials to keep a meal here interesting. It’s perfect for leisurely after-work drinks and snacks, especially if you’re not feeling the pub, and it’s nice to sit on the street on a nice day with a glass of wine and some tapas like a fancy person.
