Replacing his Spanish restaurant Rambla is this Californian-inspired newcomer, also by Victor Garvey.
Harden's survey result
“A good find for tapas” in “the heart of Soho” – this “good-value Spanish” two-year-old is “ideal for a pre-theatre meal” or a “casual meet-up, rather than somewhere for a relaxed evening”. Barcelona-born chef Victor Garvey has opened and closed a quick succession of ventures – Encant, Sibarita and Barullo, the latter of which only lasted two months earlier this year – with Bar Jaleo scheduled to launch in late 2019.
“Big flavours (and decent-sized portions too)” help inspire only positive reviews for Victor Garvey’s “superb new Catalan venture” in Soho, which delivers “accomplished” cooking and “excellent value for money”. This said, numerous newspaper reviewers have gushed about the place bigtime, and there is the odd caution that “although it’s above average, it’s not quite as exceptional as some well-known critics might wish you to believe”.
For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
