Casa Lola is an authentic Spanish restaurant and tapas bar. It’s a great place for a fun and lively night out with a crowd, or even a romantic meal for two.

Begin your visit at the long bar and let the day’s worries melt away with a glass of wine or two from the varied selection. Once you’ve had your fill, make your way to the restaurant area, where classic terracotta paving, striking decorative tiles and crisp tablecloths will make you feel welcome and excited to dine.

Promptly seated by the friendly staff, we nibbled olives and Padron peppers while perusing the lengthy menu. It features the likes of mouth-watering paella, tiger prawn Thermidor and lamb cutlets. Although tempted by the selection, we decided that the tapas menu would be the best way to sample Casa Lola’s offering, and our table was soon groaning under the weight of our delicious choices. The classic patatas bravas – deep-fried potatoes in a tomato and chilli sauce – were very moreish and had a suitable kick. Meanwhile the chorizo al vino went perfectly with the mellow Rioja that we had ordered. The albondigas came in a rich tomato and pepper sauce and were also cooked to perfection, but perhaps the most stunning dish of all was the fish skewer, which comprised tender pieces of monkfish and smoky grilled prawns.

From the homemade desserts, I plumped for crème Catalan – which was both delicious and beautifully presented – while my partned devoured creamy banoffee pie.

It was evident throughout our feast that the kitchen team is very talented, taking care to only source the best ingredients for dishes. Our meal was perfect from beginning to end, with the front-of-house team proving efficient and on-hand, without being overbearing. We’ll certainly be returning to Casa Lola soon, perhaps next time during the day to take advantage of the lunchtime menu, which offers two tapas dishes for £6.
