Cafe EspanaOne of the best Spanish restaurants in London, as the loyal crowds of Hispanic diners would suggest. This cosy, unpretentious restaurant doesn't take reservations, and it's usually packed and noisy, but the food is worth any wait and there's also a decent wine list.

For sheer value, the 2 person paella will actually feed a family of 4... other Spanish classic dishes are cheap and delicious, and there's an atmosphere of contentment that will have you smiling before the food even arrives.

Highly recommended by readers, Caf? Espana is consistently excellent and among the best moderately priced places in town.
