A favourite local Spanish tapas restaurant, El Olivo restaurant is located on the ever more chichi Stoke Newington Church Street, within reach of the rail station as well as the bars and boutiques of the area. The dark wood interior of El Olivo provides a cosy atmosphere in which the lively buzz of chatter makes for the sort of cosmopolitan vibe you might find in any cool European city tapas bar. While the very Spanish dish of paella is indeed an El Olivo specialty, the remainder of the menu, classic sharing tapas dishes in the main, blends together the favourites of the Spanish interior with a heavy dose of Mediterranean flavour from the coastal regions. The wine list is almost entirely new world but with all the expected Spanish additions - including excellent cava - all for good, low prices. With its chilled atmosphere, Stoke Newington's El Olivo is a bustling meeting place getting a whole lot of amor from hungry North London locals.
