Lobos: “Great food, interesting location”

Really loved our visit to Lobos, meat and tapas. The restaurant is located under a railway bridge, which gives it a really special vibe. We did not have reservations for the evening and the place was packed, but the super friendly waiter assured us there would be opening up a table in about twenty minutes. So we ordered some excellent cava and waited at the bar.

Lobos has a really authentic feel to it, because most of the staff are Spanish speaking. Great for me, because I love practicing my Spanish. We had such a great time chatting with the bar keeper (who offered us a free piece of lovely jamón), that we were surprised our waiting time was over already.

We got al lovely booth for two persons under a barrel vault. We tried as many different tapas as we could. All tapas were great, but I have to give a special shout out to the herb crusted lamb: perfectly cooked and seasoned. Mouth watering! Only minor issue: the red wine was served a bit too warm. Perhaps they should invest in a storage facility to keep the wines at the right temperature.

Big Chill Bar: “Superb cocktails”

During our London trip we enjoyed some truly great cocktails in Bar Big Chill. The bar tender, a very chill guy from Melbourne, took great care in preparing us our drinks. I enjoyed the ‘gingerbread sour’ very much. Fingerlicking fantastic. The ‘big tea party’ my friend ordered was equally as good. The cocktails were excellent and we enjoyed sitting at the bar observing the waiters.

Bar Big Chill is a hip and trendy place with an industrial feel and a huge bar. Drinks have to be ordered at the bar. You can sit inside or enjoy the big terrace outside. A great place for a drink!
