Harden's survey result
High-quality Portuguese cooking – rare in London – is the aim of this heart-of-tourist-Covent-Garden venture: opened in November 2019 by Salt Yard founder, Simon Mullins and his Portugal-born wife Isabel Almeida Da Silva. The aim is to celebrate the cuisine’s diversity “with influences from all the places around the world where Portugal had a colonial presence”, from South America to Africa and Asia. “The wines are all from Portugal, covering all areas and containing some real gems.” All early survey reports suggest it's well worth a visit.
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).

Volta do Mar Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Fancy versions of Portuguese classics. Piri-Piri chicken and Mozambique fish and prawn curry were fine but too well behaved. Service friendly but music far too loud. "
"Good value simple Portuguese food but occasionally overwhelmed by the number of customers so the service, though friendly, was far too slow"
