A ray of sunshine has alighted on Snowsfields, a quiet little street behind London Bridge station, in the form of Londrino a new Portuguese-inspired restaurant. Even on a bleak mid-winter evening, the spirit of the southern European summer infuses every plate.

At the bar, an impeccable martini and a delicately flavoured crab and brown butter tart sets the scene for a parade of simple dishes carefully prepared from excellent ingredients. The decor, too, is clean and precise: mid-century modern furniture on polished concrete and hand-painted Portuguese tiles.
