Cora Pearl Covent Garden is named after an infamous 19th century courtesan, and housed in a historic London townhouse on Henrietta Street. You’ll find complex British comfort food and stunning craft cocktails being served up at Cora Pearl, which is the sister restaurant of Kitty Fisher’s in Mayfair. Expect plates of exquisite food that are presented perfectly – and taste even better than they look – all washed down with a tasty cocktail or two. So whether you’re thinking about the destination for your next date night or if you’re planning a special dinner with friends and family, a reservation at Cora Pearl is an excellent decision. Advance booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
This was my third visit to Cora Pearl. I prefer the starters to the mains and usually have a few of these to share. The ‘toastie’, agnolotti and the smoked eeel are my three favourites. The crab dish is very small and a little disappointing. And of course you have to have the chips, they are not to be missed and definitely not for sharing. The wine list is a little limited and rather overpriced but you can’t go wrong with picpoul. I would definitely recommend, particularly as a place to visit in autumn/winter as it has a cosy ambience.
