Beautiful and playful dishes
Just moments from Covent Garden, this is the latest venture from chef Eneko Atxa, famed for his three-Michelined star restaurant Azurmendi in Bilbao, Spain. Leave any assumptions about Spanish cuisine and tapas at the door, and enjoy beautiful and playful dishes that emphasize the traditional cuisine of the Basque country.
The sleek interior combines industrial elements as a nod to the industrial heritage of Bilbao with organic materials sourced from Basque craftsmen help to create a warm and inviting space, while hot-pepper-red leather seating and copper add pops of colour. Explore the all-Spanish wine list which includes bottles from the winery run by the chef and his uncle, highlighting local grape varieties.
The knowledgeable staff can recommend pairings whether you opt for rich roasted Iberico pork or lighter vegetarian options. And don’t miss the desserts. The torrija, a caramelised sponge with tangy goat milk ice cream, is a particularly delicious standout.
