Do the Lambeth Walk on down to this south-central Thameside district. Or if it’s easier, you could just get the Tube to nearby Lambeth North or Vauxhall stations. The lesser known cousin of Waterloo and Vauxhall, South Lambeth has all the charm of these 2 areas, including historic buildings and spectacular river views. Visitors flock to Lambeth for the Royal Festival Hall, and the London Eye. It’s even got its own bridge, so what’s not to like? When it comes to restaurants in South Lambeth, expect stylish yet informal cocktail bars and gastropubs, with an ample selection of restaurants representing cuisine from around the world.
If it’s European cuisine you’re seeking amongst South Lambeth restaurants, make a stop at Rebato’s, a Spanish tapas bar that’s a short walk from Stockwell and Oval Tubes. Established way back in 1984, Rebato’s has been a popular destination for south Londoners ever since. Menu items include tapas classics, and there’s an excellent Spanish wine list.
Sticking with European cuisine, but taking a look at something a bit out of the ordinary, Zeitgeist @ The Jolly Gardeners is a Bavarian restaurant and German cultural hub. On the menu, expect traditional favourites such as bratwurst, schnitzel, plus a generous selection of German beers.
