Opening this November, Volta do Mar brings an exciting flavour of Portugal to Covent Garden. Founded by husband and wife team Simon Mullins (formerly Co-Founder of the Salt Yard Group) and Isabel Almeida Da Silva and located in a charming Georgian townhouse, the restaurant celebrates Portuguese cuisine and its rich culinary influences from around the world.

Loosely translating as ‘return from the sea’, Volta do Mar explores classic Portuguese staples to dishes born of the country’s trading past and culinary interactions with Angola, Goa, Mozambique and beyond. Expect dishes such as Smoked ham hock feijoada, a traditional bean-based stew; Macanese Arroz Marisco, seafood rice served tableside from a Cataplana; Pão Com Chouriço, Goan smoked chorizo served in a naan. A selection of charcuterie and cheese will be exclusively sourced from one of Portugal’s oldest and family run businesses, Manteigaria Silva, founded c.1890.

The restaurant’s drinks list has been lovingly assembled to showcase Portuguese wines and several Ports and Madeiras. Much of the wine list will be available by the glass or carafe, with many priced under £30 per bottle.

Volta do Mar is at 13-15 Tavistock Street, London, WC2E 7PS. Keep up with their news on Instagram @voltadomar_ldn.
