A Tradition Rooted in Authenticity
The quaint location of El Pirata on Down Street is more than just a Spanish restaurant; it’s a piece of Mayfair’s history, positioned near the very place that bestowed Mayfair its renowned name. Accessibility is key: a prime location near five-star hotels of Mayfair, and a short journey away from Knightsbridge and Kensington accommodations. Yet, what truly sets El Pirata apart is its unwavering commitment to delivering genuine Spanish flavours. Regulars, making up about 90% of the clientele, swear by the unparalleled tapas offerings, affirming its reputation as one of the finest in London.
