Hispania Restaurant

This City tapas joint certainly has a grand old setting – it’s in the old Lloyds Bank building, on Lombard Street. It’s a National Heritage site. Spanish slants come from Andalusian floor tiles and marble sourced from Macael and Markina.

Hispania restaurant looks like an unassuming typical banker location for lunch when you walk by. When you walk in you immediately feel the vast size of this place. Hispania is the largest Spanish restaurant in London. This place has been rumored for months to be one of the very best restaurants in London in the Spanish cuisine. As we walked in we felt as though we had really stepped out of the busy city to a parador in Spain.

Almost everything in this vast place is authentic from the magnificent Spanish floor, to the wooden private dining table that was owned originally by a notorious Spanish banker. The ground floor holds the bar, dining tables, a deli area where people can pick up a quick lunch or breakfast to take away and a cheese cellar.
