Barcelona has 'aficion' - that means passion and knowledge and, in bullfighting, what makes you get into the ring with an irritable herbivore. The space that houses this Barcelona, the third in a continuing series, was once a pharmacy. It still has its funky antique dispensing cabinets, but is also kitted out in Barcelona's inimitable sunny style, including tiling, vivid hues, and the trademark lizard, inspired by a Gaudi mad masterpiece. The Conservatory areas are extremely popular, but then so is the whole restaurant. As it's a short five minute walk from Dulwich village, it's full of professional types, but it's located in a residential area which brings in scads of happy families reliving the cuisine of their latest Spanish holiday. Hora Loca is a madly good deal - we have our own little aficion for the jugs of sangria. The tapas include many familiar favourites as well as specialities from all the regions of Spain. Try dishes like the Andalusian pork and bean stew with chorizo, Galician-style octopus, and Catalan grilled peppers, onions and aubergines. The Spanish wine list is a treat.

Obvious enjoyment and invisible professionalism: the two elements of the perfect group event. At Barcelona, not only is the food terrific and the decor bright and out-of-the-ordinary, but the staff are right on the money so everything goes as smooth as silk. The small private room at the rear of the restaurant holds up to ten, making it right for everything from stags and hens to business meetings and celebration meals. Because of the corner location and streetside conservatory, it's a lovely space to approach in the evening when all is lit from within. The entire restaurant can be hired for large events and staff will do all they can to meet your requirements. The tapas menu is quite perfect for drinks-with-food type dos, as well as hearty buffets.
