Review on Sibarita
Sibarita is a charming Spanish restaurant serving cheese, wine and charcuterie, located in the heart of Covent Garden, a short walk from the Strand on Maiden Lane, it's a perfectly placed venue for theatre-goers. Having made a big impression with his now closed Encant restaurant which was situated a few doors down from Sibarita, this is a joint venture from acclaimed chef Victor Garve and his father.
Aptly named Sibarita it translates as epicure, a person who takes particular pleasure in fine food and drink. It's an intimate narrow space with flowers hanging from the ceiling and intricate Spanish tiling and mirrors decorating the walls. Cosy green banquette style sofas and cushions run down one side of the room, with small tables and chairs opposite.
Cheese and charcuterie have been sourced from around Spain and Catalunya and there's also a tapas menu featuring dishes like glazed pork bell with Piquillo pepper, rosemary and honey or grilled octopus, paprika and roasted garlic, finishing on a sweet note with Torrija, caramelised brioche pudding paired with passion fruit sorbet.
To accompany the dishes there's a great selection of Spanish wines, sangria, a gin and tonic menu, as well as tasty cocktails.
