Summary

Especially “on a rainy night, snuggled up in the window by candlelight”, this small modern tapas restaurant off Carnaby Street can still be a valued haunt. But its ratings have dropped sharply in the past two years as the Salt Yard Group changed hands. “The food used to be really delicious: the ideas are still good” – the “brilliant inclusion of Italian elements in the tapas” – but the realisation nowadays can be “mediocre”.

Summary

Part of the Salt Yard Group – this “lovely little dining room” off Carnaby Street has won a reputation for its “excellent quality” Spanish and Italian tapas. All reports here remain upbeat, but – while the most enthusiastic feels the cooking “never fails to impress” – since the departure of Ben Tish, the chain’s chef-director, ratings have slipped and the most sceptical regulars feel the “food has fallen from delicious to mediocre”.

Summary

“Awesome Spanish and Italian tapas” has made this “convivial” dining room with terrace off Carnaby Street a “firm favourite” for many (“I always feel at home here even with the crowds shopping!”). But food scores are down this year, as they are for several Salt Yard group stablemates – not helped by the Spring 2017 departure of chef-director Ben Tish?
