Sadly after decades of being a high spot of South Lambeth Rd, things have moved along and so had Rebatos. They do outside catering I believe. There are loads of other restaurants close by including the excellent Canton Arms / modern British / simple fresh...More

The Victorian plaster mouldings on the ceiling are samples of the mouldings produced in in this building before Rebato's took it over. The splendid floor tiles and low lighting in the bar, together with the welcoming staff make this a place for regulars. There is...More

After reading various reviews of the joint I took the plunge and booked a table at Rebatos...When we got there we were taken to the main restaurant at the back (a smaller tapas bar at the front) which had good decor and looked inviting. The...More

Hiding behind an unremarkable exterior, Rebato's is a charming, old-fashioned Spanish restaurant that has been a Stockwell neighbourhood favourite for decades. It once made the national headlines when an MI5 agent left Rebato's after an evening drinking in the tapas bar, and left a laptop...More

Took my wife, her mum and stepfather to Rebato's and was not disappointed. Not our first time as a couple - we have taken friends and family back time and again. And every single visit we have enjoyed exceptional food and hospitality. We sat in...More

Easily the best tapas in London and an institution. The new "feed me" option is brilliant - delicious things just keep appearing. Well worth the journey if you're not a local, and if you are a local, this should be a regular.

Stopped here with the kids whilst waiting for the girls to do the Shine walk. A lot of positive reviews on Trip Advisor, so thought we'd try it. Not at all disappointed. We ordered 5 tapas between 3 of us; Patatas Lucas, Calamares, grilled Rabbit,...More

Rebato's has a style all its own, something like a classic Spanish dining club right here in London. At busy mealtimes, you'll hear a mixture of Spanish and English, both from the clientele and the staff. At the front of house, there's a buzzing tapas bar -- one of the first in the capital, while beyond lies the dining room proper, with old-style grandeur: tiled floor, plants, and skylights. Favourite dishes almost always include the fish of the day, and the roast suckling pig. There's a massive choice of appetizers to tempt you, as well as the interesting wine list. Great service, too.
