Comensal specialises in serving fresh and authentic homemade Mexican food, bringing a taste of Mexico to the heart of Clapham.
We offer a variety of delicious dishes, from our famous Guacamole to our tempting Main Courses and our amazing Street Food which is perfect for sharing!
Our bartenders also make brilliant cocktails and serve an array of Mexican beers and wines, and of course Tequilas and Mezcals, which are a perfect beginning to an authentic taste of Mexico.Book
Freshly prepared by our team of Mexican chefs, our authentic Mexican menu is prepared using traditional Mexican ingredients and techniques. For private parties and events please contact us for menu options and more information.
Our wine list is sourced exclusively from the Americas and the Iberian Peninsula, and we serve a large selection of authentic Mexican spirits, beers and cocktails. These are available at your table, or why not take a seat at our bar and watch them being prepared.
Having met in Mexico City in 2013, John Sim and Cati Bego struck upon the idea of bringing a taste of authentic Mexican cuisine to the UK.
While John was a keen amateur cook, Cati and her family had opened restaurants in Guadalajara, San Miguel De Allende and Mexico City itself, and were keen to take their exciting and vibrant flavours to a brand new audience.
With the couple deciding to relocate to London, a deal was soon struck to set up Comensal on Abbeville Rd, Clapham.
That's when the fun really got started, with a manic, six-week programme of refurbishment, long days and short nights leading up to the restaurant’s official opening at the beginning of June 2014.
With all food made in-house by a team of Mexican chefs, and fresh produce prepared on-site in place of pre-pulped ingredients, Comensal is an authentic taste of modern Mexico, in a leafy neighbourhood setting.
Last year we won 'Best Newcomer' in the Time and Leisure Magazine food and drink awards.
