Top 4 Spanish Restaurants In Islington You Must Visit
La Farola Cafe
The first place you need to visit if you love Spanish food and tapas is La Farola Cafe – one of our favourite restaurants in Islington in general! It’s a lovely little place with a gorgeous venue – rustic and stylish. The food is absolutely delicious and always prepared with fresh ingredients, and the staff is very friendly.
Their menu consists of both traditional dishes as well as a few unique and creative options you won’t find anywhere else.
We highly recommend you order their Squid Ink Risotto (with parmesan, aioli, crispy squid), the Jamon De Teruel, the Chorizo With Black Beans, and the famous Croquetas de jamón y queso mahón! These are our favourite dishes on their menu and we are certain you are going to love them as well.
Of course, just like any other Spanish restaurant, La Farola Cafe has an impressive menu with drinks that go very well with every dish.
For dessert, definitely go for their Churros with chocolate!

The restaurant is beautiful, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the staff is friendly, the prices are affordable, the food is delicious… what more can you ask for, right?
We usually start off with their Ensalada mixta (mixed salad with tuna) and the Jamon Ibérico. We also really like the Potatoes with their spicy homemade tomato sauce and the Ham Spanish croquettes!
Then we move on to the star of the show… their paella! Choose between Chicken paella, Seafood Paella, Mixed Chicken and Seafood paella, or even Vegetarian Paella!
When it comes to their desserts, all of them are homemade. We love the Spanish bread pudding, the Churros, and the Spanish rice pudding!
