A dimly lit, decidedly compact tapas bar under the railway arches - sit upstairs to enjoy the theatre of the open kitchen — Michelin Guide

Drinks-wise, it’s all about the stimulating lineup of wines, sherries and cavas in an intimate space that feels like a modern cave (the name translates as "wolves"). — Zagat

The Shard's most accessible restaurant covers all bases by serving breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner — Michelin Guide

Seafood   0.14 miles from Old Operating Theatre 80 The TripExpert score is determined by calculating the general consensus of expert reviewers. Learn more →
