Portugal VS Spain — best place to watch
June 26, 2012 3:04 AM   Subscribe

Tugafi: where in South London should i go to watch the Portugal/Spain game tomorrow? I'd like to watch in a Portuguese place, not a Spanish one. There are 30,000 Portuguese in South London, I think mainly around Vauxhall, Brixton, Stockwell. I know there are a bunch of restaurants on South Lambeth Road, but not sure how good they'll be for the football. We'll hopefully be between 5 and 10 people. Suggestions?

As you say, there is a whole string of Portuguese places along South Lambeth Rd, between Vauxhall and Stockwell. Most of the ones I've seen have tvs. They will be heaving for the game though. Time Out says Bar Estrela will be the place to go.

Or you could try Lisboa Grill at the top of Brixton Hill. Great chicken and chips. They have a tv in the front room, but it's not massive.

There's also O Cantinho on Stockwell Rd.

Bar Estrela looks perfect. How early do you think I'll have to go so that we can safely get a table? 5? 6?

When I went to Bar Kick on Saturday to watch Spain v. France we arrived at around 6pm for a 7:45 kickoff and it was PACKED (and they cleared away all the tables). Tomorrow's game is a 6:45 kickoff so I wouldn't go there any later than 5 if you want a table because you'll be competing with everyone who sneaked out of work early. I'd say better to get there early and get some snacks in with a premium seat! :)

I can probably get there around 4:30. Just get into work a little early...

4.30 sounds about right if you want to be safe. I'd think it would get pretty busy after 5.
