Copita in Soho collects more awards than most people do stamps. On D’Arblay Street, Copita London are a perennial favourite among foodies and lovers of authentic Spanish cuisine and culture alike. Perch on one of the high stools or stay standing and get stuck into the daily menu of small, colourful and tasty dishes. The friendly staff at Copita restaurant add to the atmosphere and everything on the Spanish wine list comes by the glass or – copita. Awarded the Bib Gourmand by the Michelin Guide, this is a London restaurant not to be missed and it’s immensely popular. You’d better be sure to head to Soho armed with a reservation in your pocket.
Cherishing the Spanish culture of eating either standing up or on stools at bar level, Copita London creates an upbeat, relaxed environment that you don’t get in any old restaurant most of the time. In fact, Copita restaurant doesn’t feel too much like a restaurant at all, but just because it’s a bar environment doesn’t mean the food is secondary to the drink offering. Quite on the contrary, at Copita – excellently located on D’Arblay Street not too far from Oxford Circus Underground – food is a matter of life and death. The Copita London menu is constantly evolving with a particular focus on sourcing great ingredients and is one of our favourite tapas bars in Soho.
All of Copita’s wines are served by the glass, half bottle carafe and bottle. And Copita London love sherry too, that’s why they have 15 varieties by the glass to choose from as the most fantastic accompaniments to Spanish food. Of course, you can get a lovely cold beer too, a glass of quality cava, as well as a San Sebastian-style G&T and a host of other spirits including pacharan, Spanish liqueurs and a small selection of Spanish brandy. For a proper tapas restaurant in London there really is no better shout than Copita Soho.
This was one of my best tapas experiences in London! The chorizo was a highlight of the meal - so juicy and full of flavour.
Have reviewed elsewhere. But in short - fantastic place, fantastic food.
I love this place. Quiet, great staff and fantastic tapas. Copita always have their own little twist on dishes, and the wine menu is great too. Highly recommended.
Great food and service, we loved the choices of gin!
it is a nice place well decorated in the middle of soho/oxford st. staff are friendly and is priced a bit more than the usual because of the area. the food is not something to die for, also they try to be a bit different from the usual tapas place so the menu differs and sometimes it works tastewise but some did not. overall was satisfying.
The food is - always - excellent, the gins magnificent and the vibe a gas. What more can you as for? Other than another helping of the paprika chips and duck's egg.
Good quality food in a relaxed atmosphere. We arrived just before the mid afternoon kitchen break but the chef stayed for an extra quarter of an hour to do our food.
The bar looks beautiful and tipical spanish for tapas, with high tables and stools instead sitting, the team is very good but the products are over priced. Total bill: £47menu: -King prawns (3units) - Brava sweet potatoe -bread,almonds 3beers, 2 espresso (called "solos" in spain), 1rice pudding. So, approx One main course -tapa size-each with beer and coffee pudding to share, £23.5.
Nice tapas and great setting, ideal for informal lunch. Staff were friendly and i really liked the pork belly. Plates too are reasonably sized so a couple or three of the dishes each will suffice.
Fantastic food, laid back atmosphere, good service. Came for a lunch meeting on this occasion and it was an ideal setting. Good value for money too!
