Opera Tavern is a tapas bar and restaurant located in Covent Garden. It is spread over two floors and is suitable place for tapas with a small group of friends.
We sat upstairs on a table for four people where most of the main seatIngs. The restaurant was buzzing with people having dinner. While waiting for a friend we ordered a portion of the Grilled flat bread served with Olive Oil (£4.50). The flat bread was nice but I was not sure about the price tag for bread.
Classic Tortilla (£5)
Confit of Old Spot Pork Belly with Rosemary Scented Cannellini Beans (£9)
Charcoal grilled lamb gigot with roasted pumpkin, watercress, goat curd and chill (£8.50)
Chargrilled Octopus with Chickpea Fritter, Red Pepper and Mojo Verde (£9)
Brasied oxtail with bone marrow, truffle mash and parmensan crumb (£8.50)
Overall I thought each tapas was nicely cooked and presented. My favourite tapas of the evening had to be the braised oxtail which made a good comfort food.
Tapas is not really a cuisine that is cheap to eat in London, especially if you are really hungry and need to go through many plates of tapas to fill full. The price of the tapas in Opera Tavern is average and comparable to other London tapas bar and restaurant.
