To my mind, tapas is fun food which is perfect for eating at a bar, and the bar area at the Opera Tavern is a great example of where this works brilliantly. They do have a more sedate restaurant upstairs for which they take bookings but it doesn't have half the atmosphere of the downstairs area. Downstairs, where no bookings are taken, is much more vibrant with some tables but the best seats are the stools at the bar. I have to say that I enjoyed all of the dishes we ate but the burgers with foie gras, which really did melt in your mouth, was the stand out dish. It is fairly noisy and so I would not recommend this for a night out with your parents but it is perfect for a pre/post theatre supper or a Friday night on the town with one or two friends (just not big groups as you will not get a table).
