Lonely Planet review

Avoid the chain-gang restaurants that now dominate the newly ‘regenerated’ (read sterile and corporate-friendly) Spitalfields market and stick to the old school with this long-established family restaurant. While the fresh fish here is great, the real draw is the excellent selection of tapas (£3.50 to £11.95). Sawdust on the floor and air-dried hams overhead add to the rustic market feel of the place.
