José Pizarro opened his first restaurant, José Tapas, in a tiny corner of Bermondsey in 2011.

Bringing real tapas and the experience of being at a little bar in Spain, the restaurant continues to receive awards and praise from critics and customers alike. Not long afterwards he opened Pizarro, still in the heart of Bermondsey, which offers traditional Spanish food with a modern twist alongside an innovative Spanish wine list and a buzzing atmosphere to boot.

2015 saw José and his team take a long-awaited step into the City, opening José Pizarro at the newly developed Broadgate Circle. The restaurant represents the culmination of over twenty years of cooking; bringing together tapas, pintxos and pica pica as well as a selection of larger signature dishes. The restaurant also features a large terrace, perfect for relaxing with a glass of Cava on a sunny day.
