Like its siblings Salt Yard, Dehesa and Ember Yard, Opera Tavern is a reliably good choice for tapas-lovers, who are seduced by a seasonal menu of invigorating Iberian-influenced dishes backed by a list of gluggable Spanish and Italian wines. Nibble on slivers of jamón with a glass of fino, before diving into small plates such as roasted hake with Jerusalem artichokes, a gooey confit egg yolk and a well-judged piquillo and hazelnut sauce or char-grilled Ibérico pork with deeply savoury cavolo nero and porcini. Zucchini flowers drizzled in honey are "a must", and we've never been able to order any other dessert after trying their chocolate fondant filled with salted PX caramel. Readers like the "vibrant" atmosphere of this converted pub, where staff "always make you feel welcome". "My best-kept secret in Covent Garden, this is a truly delicious experience", concludes one reader.
Square Meal is proud to be supporting homeless charity StreetSmart in their 2016 campaign, for the seventh year running.
StreetSmart works with over 400 restaurants nationwide by adding £1 to every bill throughout November and December, which is donated to local homeless charities.
From the outside, Opera tavern just looks like any other pubs in Covent Garden, however once you enter it, you realize how chic it is. Thehe bar is downstairs and we were led upstairs to the dining area. Atmosphere is unpretentious, with everyone laughing out loud, this is perfect place to chill with friends and even celebrate your birthday here...

Opera Tavern is a wonderful restaurant located in the hustle & bustle of idyllic Covent Garden. It is a well-rated tapas restaurant offering mostly Italian and Spanish inspired dishes. I personally love sharing food when I eat out and getting to try as many different items on the menu as possible, so Opera Tavern was an excellent choice of Michael’s for us to celebrate Saint Valentine’s.
