Expert review of Casa Don Carlos
This faithful friend of a tapas place never fails to hit the spot. From the brisk but efficient service to the delicious, garlicky aromas wafting out of the kitchen, it feels very Spanish and delightfully old-fashioned.
There’s a huge menu of tasty morsels such as deep-fried octopus rings, pickled anchovies, spicy potatoes, creamy chunks of tortilla and piping hot meatballs, with Spanish wine and beer to complement it all nicely.
It's warm, authentic and unpretentious. It’s tiny, though, so if you find yourself sharing the place with a rowdy party of Rioja-drinkers you’ll have no escape, unless it’s warm enough to sit outside.
The owner and most of his staff are Spanish and highly professional.
It's on a narrow pedestrian street in the historic Lanes.
All the dishes are very reasonably priced (almost all are under £5) but with so much on offer, it’s all too easy to get carried away and order far more than you can manage.
