Square Meal Review of Copita ?

Energetic tapas bolthole Copita nails an authentic vibe with its hanging hams, tiled floor, high stools and wraparound bar. Booze is every bit as important as the food here. Every single wine, sherry and cava is available by the glass, and all 20 gins can be made into vast G&Ts that will be familiar to anyone who’s had a night out in San Sebastián. The kitchen serves some of its tapas straight up, but puts a clever spin on the rest: a simple tomato salad is enlivened by fresh peas and pickled fennel and the signature ajo blanco (chilled ‘white’ soup) comes with colour-clashing beetroot. Quality and service is, alas, a little patchy. No reservations at dinner.

    Samphire and Salsify :: Copita, Soho

    Copita is a tapas bar on D’Arblay Street in Soho and, as it features in the ‘Bib Gourmand recommends’ section of the Michelin guide, we thought we’d pop in to try a couple of the dishes.

    It was a bright and airy restaurant and at 3pm, on a sunny Saturday afternoon, the place was positively packed. There were no tables, just stools in front of high benches, yet we didn’t feel uncomfortable – in fact, quite the opposite...

  1. There’s no shortage of tapas restaurants in London and Soho has more than its fair share, so a new tapas place has to have a little something extra to pique my interest. Copita serves up Catalan-inspired tapas and is located on a small side street in Soho so it’s almost impossible to stumble across. Most of London’s tapas eateries are restaurants rather than bars, but Copita aims to replicate the more casual, grazing, dip in and out style of traditional tapas eating with its all-stool and bench seating although it’s still more of a restaurant than a bar...

    londonfoodaholic :: REVIEW: Copita

    If I'm ever faced with that childish desert island conundrum of 'if you only had to eat one type of food, what would it be?' My answer will always be Indian, and Spanish cuisine. Both have so much to offer in terms of vibrancy, flavour, tradition and importantly value for money. Copita in Soho has it all. Nestled in the back streets of Soho, it's an extremely hidden restaurant which doesn't help itself with its inconspicuous facade that gives nothing away when walking past.

    I'd actually never heard of Copita before and only managed to find out about it from new restaurant booking app, CityHawk. It popped...

    FoodiesOnTheProwl FoodiesOnTheProwl :: Copita, Feb 2013

    Copita opened its doors a few years ago and has generally received good reviews since then. All the more impressive given that London is blessed with many good tapas restaurants and many of the latest dining trends in London originate from tapas restaurants (think eating behind the counter, open kitchen, sharing platters, etc). It is therefore risky for any restaurant to take on this particular culinary niche. Copita dared to take on the challenge and succeeds at it thanks to great cooking, great service and a great atmosphere...

    andmorefood :: copita, london

    good modern spanish in soho.

    let me start by saying, I have made it to copita! one of the group of trendy no-reservation restaurants in london popping up on food blogs and ‘what-to-do-in-london’ mailing lists. I really don’t rather appreciate no-reservation systems; if I have the right to plan for a meal out and call ahead of time, then everyone has that same right! it’s not inherently fairer to have it first-come-first-serve; I’ll heartily weild a sword against anyone who tries to argue that point.

    but in any case, I used the magic golden ticket of a late weekday lunch to get to copita, and I had...

    The Hedonist :: Review-Copita

    I love Copita. I’ve being going there since it opened and it really feels as if its owner Tom Luther has brought a little corner of Seville to Soho. The menu features a decent range of fifteen sherries, a strong wine selection and delicious and often creative small plates most of which are hits rather than misses...

    TRUsocial :: TRUsocial: Tapas courtesy of Copita

    On Friday, I ventured to Copita on D'Arblay Street instead, where we got crazy lucky with a table outside at 19:30 without a wait - it was extremely busy though, and I heard the wait thereafter was up to an hour. Moral of the story therefore, as with so many places these days, get there at a good time, take a risk and/or be prepared to stand around with a pint (or copita!) while you wait.

    The menu is so perfectly non-pretentious and easy, and despite my love of patatas bravas, I was actually pleased to see some really alternative small plates on offer - all the staff were Spanish too, which always seems like...
