Spanish
Lobos is an exciting new tapas bar also focused on prime cuts of Spanish and British meat. Meaning wolvesin Spanish, Lobos offers a short, sharp list of vibrantly authentic, traditional tapas with ingredients sourced locally, evolving seasonally and therefore dishes that will change frequently depending on what is available from the market. Lobos is a real carnivore’s paradise, think perfectly roasted Iberico pork, slow cooked shoulders of lamb and lightly charred, rosy pink bone in rib-eye to share, all presented simply and cooked to perfection, allowing the pristine quality of the offering to shine through. Please note that any reservations not confirmed with the restaurant may be subject to cancellation 24 hours before booking time.

Really expensive place for really small plates and product quality. The cheese plate had not enough cheese, it seems like there was nothing, slices were too thin. Same for the black rice, expensive for not much food to eat and there was not enough prawns, only 1 prawn cut in three small pieces while the price was not £5-£6 but £13! I'm not even talking about the octopus which is £16, but there was nothing to eat for the price! Besides the prices on the website are not the same once you are there. Well overall, we were 4 persons and all of us were very disappointed, we do not recommend.

Good food, good area. Don’t book too late though because they will rush your meal so that they can close on time. They bought out our appetisers with our main tapas! Food was still good though, wine was delicious and service was okay :)

Really nice food in a casual and cool setting. The best seats are upstairs As it’s within a railway arch. Really nice place for dinner.

It was our first time dining there and we had the tiny tables on the side at the entrance. We didn’t enjoy the dining experience at all. The place felt cramped and we did ask to change table but unfortunately it was fully booked.

Very loud, very busy, food was OK, but getting the waiting staff to take orders was hard work. Even though we booked in advance, the table was only allocated for 90mins, which would have been difficult to manage even if the order was taken on time and the food had arrived quickly. We asked for some water for the table on arrival and never got it. Only managed to place one order for the tapas, which was small as the tables are tiny and we never got asked if we wanted anything else, so left hungry.

Great kwerky spot with a nice atmosphere!

The food was good though the pictures had me expecting a jaw dropping experience! It was just good! We had to wait a while for our main (the waitresses were not aware until we mentioned it)! I liked the fact you had someone shadowing your new staff member who didn't do to bad on her first day.

Over all a 3 out of 5!
Will defo go again to try some of dishes! Hopefully they are as good as they look!

Booking was at 6:30, but they were "setting up" and we got our table around 7. The table they "set up" over 30 minutes was out in the weather, no covering, that looked like it was put out in a rush. This was followed by the server rolling her eyes at us when we asked to be moved. Thoroughly disappointed.

We had been to Lobos before and I remember the experience being a lot more pleasant. This time we sat outside, in a tiny table under the railway bridge. Zero effort on atmosphere outside, just tables on the street, no heaters, no flowers, nothing. Food was also not the best, we ordered 6 dishes between us, one we barely ate, another was so bad we sent back, the rest was fine, nothing outstanding. The service was the best thing about the experience, lovely Spanish waiter. Wouldn’t recommend.

Meat platters - ribeye and foie gras and pork selection - were fantastic. Only complaint is that we dined outdoors and the market after a busy day is not the most pristine. Waitress also knew nothing about the food, so all of our questions about the food were answered bizarrely.

Great place to meet friends after 18 months. Arrived early which was no problem to staff. Shared a number of dishes - all good especially the pork with peppers which was excellent. Would certainly go again.

I am a regular customer at Lobos Borough Market. Food excellent as always and very good service. Value for money? Yes but a little over priced (as all Spanish Tatas restaurants in London are.)

Meat focused tapas in Borough Market. Good staples like patatas bravas and less common braised artichokes. Great for a quickish bite.

Food was excellent, service was good, sat outside within Borough Market. Think they could make it a bit better, tables are very wobbly! and when you are at a table for 2 it is so small for a tapas restaurants as so many dishes to accommodate... a few plants would not go amiss either!

I will go back as the food was excellent but they let themselves down by the seating

Small portions of very average food at London prices. Bit of a rip off to be honest. Service was friendly and quick. Charcuterie was £20 and the thinnest slices I’ve ever seen. It wasn’t even decent quality.

It’s a nice concept but it’s very small as a restaurant. You’re right up against people and there isn’t much space on the table which is a bit of a pain when it comes to tapas! The staff are great though
