Tasty little tapas bar just off Carnaby street

LOCATION

I can’t believe I’ve never actually been to any of Salt Yard’s group of restaurants before, so I was up for it when a friend suggested Dehesa for a Monday night dinner. Located just off Carnaby Street, it’s very centrally located and in close proximity to many other restaurants if you aren’t able to get a table here.

THE SPACE

Dehesa is quite a compact little restaurant. High tables and stools occupy the space with few individual seating spots, so if you don’t like communal dining, then this place ain’t for you unless of course you want to book the private dining room (minimum 8 people). Dark minimalist wooden furniture and amber lighting in the evening give the space an understated luxe modern feel.

FOOD & SERVICE

Being super broke, I really made sure I limited myself to a small number of dishes. I had the tortilla (£5) which I thought was superb and could easily have ordered another one if I wasn’t counting my pennies. Also had the patatas fritas with Romesco sauce and  alioli (£4) which was very moreish and a few other dishes that we shared between the three of us. The service was so so but not bad enough to be irritating.

MOOLAH

As with any place that serves tapas or small plates of food, it really depends on how many dishes you have but overall I thought the food was reasonably priced. Costs came to about £22 each incl. a glass of wine.
