El Pirata, London’s favourite Spanish restaurant in Mayfair's biggest attraction is its affordable pricing which comes despite its exclusive MayFair postcode. We have a set-lunch menu which offers two tapas and a glass of wine, beer or a soft drink according to one’s needs at a mere price of 10.25 pounds, whereas the set-menus start from as low as 17.25 pounds. Not far from the Green Park station, El Pirata is ideally located at the Mayfair which is only a mile from Knightsbridge, Belgravia, Kensington and Fitzrovia.

Consistently being awarded for its traditional Spanish cuisine, classic tapas and friendly service El Pirata, it has been dedicatedly described as ‘effortlessly authentic’, ‘welcoming’ and ‘the best tapas in London’. It is also considered to be an ideal venue for weddings and business meetings.


The terms Tapas in Spanish means a lid, cover or cap and has come from the old Andalusian custom of presenting a glass of wine or sherry covered with a slice of ham or sausage as an appetiser. As the tradition grew, the items in the menu also grew in number. Today it has become one of the most popular ways to eat.

Tapas offers one of the most relaxed and enjoyable eating experience. There are a lot of dishes on the menu and you can choose as many as you want. Some are served hot and some are served cold. There are tasty meat, fish, vegetables and egg dishes. Tapas’ speciality is that it has a lot of variety and is easy to eat. It is recommended to always ask for ‘daily specials’.

There are two set-menus to choose from, one is economical at 17.35 pounds per person and the other 21.35 pounds per person. Both the set-menus offer great variety of dishes with unique flavour and texture. You also have the option to choose contemporary or a la carte. There are two special party menus which are put together specifically for parties of eight or more people.


Spain is known not only for its food, colours and traditions but also its wine. Spain is different and so are its wines. The country has the largest planted areas of vineyards in the world! At El Pirata, we offer the widest range of wine to give you the perfect feel of Spain.


The restaurant has a beautiful place downstairs which is ideal for small parties and gatherings of up to 60 people. The different varieties of menus compliment your party requirement so if you are looking for hosting a traditional Spanish Tapas party, then El Pirata is the place for you!
