La Siesta

About La Siesta

La Siesta restaurant in London is a truly authentic tapas bar with great food, music and the sunniest of welcomes. Smart young City suits have discovered La Siesta and make it their second home at lunch and after work. A fiery personality is behind this wonderful spot, decorated with bright reds, oranges and purples to cut through London's haze. All La Siesta's food is imported directly from Spain, so it tastes exactly the way it should. The downstairs bar has a nightly-changing menu of music and it becomes a clublike on Fridays and Saturdays when the DJ spins and the crowd all dances.
