providores, london

  • 3

it's my birthday next month and i've been thinking about going to providores to celebrate but i've seen such mixed reviews, especially about the revised approach to evening meals (tiny portions and a bit ht and miss dishes).

has anyone been recently and if so what were your experiences? any views on the merits of a la carte lunch v a tapas supper? i could do either

oh, and i have what is probably an obvious q on the tapas supper - if you opt for (say) 3 courses is that 3 dishes which you share or would two people choose 6 dishes to share (3 each)?

the sunday roast supper seems to get a good write-up - perhaps this would be a better way to try providores without having to spend so much and risk an unhappy birthday meal.

any and all opinions welcome! thanks.

  1. Went there on a date recently and were upstairs rather than in the tapas bar and wasn't impressed. There wasn't a stand out dish and I was really anticipating the experience, instead felt it was a bit like the Emperor's New Clothes? Wouldn't risk it on a bday.

    1. I have been for the tapas (downstairs) and really enjoyed it. I can't remember how many tapas we had but I am guessing more than three - your waiter will probably be able to guide you as to whether you have ordered enough.
