Barrafina King's Cross

Updated 20/9/18 with more details

What: Barrafina King's Cross

In a nutshell: Top tapas in King's Cross

Summing it all up: They're viewed as being some of the best Spanish restaurants in London and now Barriafina are coming to the new Coal Drops Yard area in King's Cross. 


The low-down

It's always good news when a new Barrafina is announced (and we're particularly pleased that this one is closer to our neck of the woods). If you're not familiar with Barrafina (I mean, HOW is that possible?) they're a Spanish tapas restaurant, there are three of them (this makes a fourth) and they serve some of the best Spanish food in the capital. 

Here's what we know about their upcoming KX branch:

It'll be the biggest Barrafina yet

This one will have space for 40 diners - and a private dining room seating up to 24

It'll also be wheelchair-friendly

They've designed in three lower-level tables to accommodate wheelchair access - a first across the group

There's going to be a massive alfresco space

The covered and heated terrace is due to open in Spring. Parrillan will have space for sixty diners. 

And - no surprise here - the food sounds amazing

Seafood dishes will include Gambas rojas ‘a la sal’; and Cuttlefish ‘a la bruta’ served with charred leek. There'll be chargrilled Pyrenean lamb cutlets using  Agno Iberico, a slightly older lamb served with a terrine of potato, peppers, courgette, morcilla and pancetta. And - for dessert - they're promising to introduce Londoners to the delights of Lionesas - Catalunya’s answer to profiteroles.
