This isn't just a taste of Spain, this is an authentic experience of Salvador Dali. A surrealist painter and Spanish hero of the art world, Salvador and Amanda are bringing together Spanish food and culture for an absolute feast for the senses.
Nestled in the heart of Covent Garden, you really have to be in the know when it comes to this eatery. One has the feeling that Salvador has been here for many decades, so steeped is it in history, memorabilia and antique oak furniture. Pillars the shade of a vintage red wine hold the whole place together whilst leather-clad booths, benches and Art Deco lamps work their magic and swaddle you in the rich history of Spanish culture.
Many people associate Spanish cuisine with tapas and sharing plates, and they wouldn't be wrong. At Salvador and Amanda, they're leaning into tradition with small plates serving the likes of chorizo magno, fried aubergine drizzled with orange blossom honey, patatas bravas and grilled beef and pork meatballs in a rich tomato sauce.
They've got seafood covered too. For unbeatable texture, opt for the salted cod croquettes, for bold flavours look to the garlic and chilli king prawns, and for comfort, it has to be the black rice with squid and prawns. The variety is truly remarkable and allows diners to enjoy a whole range of Spanish flavours without having to leave their seat.
