For years Bocca di Lupo has been at the forefront of the modern open-kitchen tapas revolution in London. Without a shadow of a doubt it is one of the premier restaurants in London and any self-respecting foodie visits them on a regular basis if only to remind themselves of the high benchmark against which many other restaurants are to be judged.

We’ve visited them so often it feels like we should become part of the staff by now. So delectable are their dishes that many times we’ve had to be rolled out of the restaurant because we over-ate to the point of rendering us incapable of walking like normal home sapiens. Nowadays we’ve learned our lesson and we tend book them for a lazy weekend lunch and make sure we don’t have any other plans afterwards ;)

    I recently went (and going back today) and the food is delicious! I tried the sea bream carpaccio and it was amazing! Your photography is beautiful by the way. Can’t wait to go back! :)
