Fernandez & Wells was founded by Jorge Fernandez and Rick Wells in 2006, the result of a meeting in a coffee shop. At the time Jorge was manager at the Monmouth Coffee Company while Rick, a journalist with the BBC, was a regular customer. The vision was (and is) to provide a simple menu of the best food and drink products it can find and serve them in a space that is both beautiful and welcoming. The style is rustic and wholesome but in a setting that is definitely urban and contemporary.
I usually like Ferdinand & Wells but the service in this store is really lacking. It's a tiny space that is approx 50-50 split bar/seating.
The person behind the counter was sooooo slow at serving that by the time our drinks and food arrived we had to gobble it down and rush out to another appointment. Naturally she didn't know we were in a hurry but this place is designed to be somewhere you can dip into for a quick drink & snack....on my visit this wasn't the case.
Average selection of drinks with a decent selection of Mediterranean meats/cheeses at London prices.
Casual Spanish tapas and wine place cosy to have a glass of wine, some starters before going for dinner nearby.
Only inconvenient aspects are that they are cooking in front of you without a ventilation system in place, hence you smell afterwards just as what they were cooking and there are most of the chairs in a row at the bar, not many tables, therefore a little bit less romantic and inviting to stay for a while.
Dishes looked great though!!!
This place is great! The food is very simple, but creative. Lovely Spanish influence. The staff is great. Very good beers and wines. We just stumbled on it and it is now among our favorite in London. Ps. We just got back from Spain and we're wishing we'd found it there.
Federico and Rachel, our servers were great!
The food was fresh and fun. We don't eat meat or shell fish. The veggies and regular fish were excellent. Originally I had planned to go to Mildred's but it was too crowded and Fernandez looked inviting. It was a delight. Hats off to Frederico and Rachel
Relaxing atmosphere at the main desk. Mix of local and international from octopus to finocchiona. Wine at the glass
