Nice Ambience and friendly smile upon arrival. Very accommodating staff. That's the good things. The great part was the food and drink. Will be going again thats for sure.

A stunning 2-storey bar and restaurant in the heart of Theatreland in Covent Garden, Opera Tavern specialises in Italian and Spanish-influenced tapas, and has been awarded 2 coveted AA Rosettes. An array of meaty treats are cooked up on the signature charcoal grill, found on the ground floor.

Producing fine-tuned, regularly evolving tapas dishes, the Opera Tavern menu is headed by the likes of mini Ibérico pork, and the foie gras burger. Other perfected signature dishes include octopus carpaccio with squid ink alioli; confit pork belly with cannellini beans and rosemary; crispy hen’s egg with wild mushrooms, and courgette flowers stuffed with goats’ cheese, and drizzled with honey. On Sundays, Opera Tavern in Covent Garden serves a fabulous 3-course paella feast, while the terrific wine list boasts carefully chosen Spanish and Italian wines alongside sherries, cocktails, gins and vermouths.

On the ground floor, exposed brickwork, low lighting and a long bar help create the perfect atmosphere for a pre-theatre meal or drink. Upstairs, the beautifully lit, calm white dining room is perfect for lunch or a leisurely evening meal, with revolving art shows adding interest to the space. The upstairs at Opera Tavern in London can also be rented for private parties.

Opera Tavern is sister restaurant to the much lauded Salt Yard, Ember Yard and Dehesa. Covent Garden and Temple Tube stations are both 5 minutes’ walk away. Please note that only charcuterie, cheese and bar snacks are served from 15:00 - 17:00.
