"The food was good, but not extraordinarily so, and I'm sure Soho rents have as much of an affect on the bill as the cost of ingredients which were generally of a high standard, but I couldn't help feeling that we didn't get a great deal for our £44 a head and had we been hungrier and thirstier the results could have been disastrous."

"I’ve eaten (at San Sebastian) recently (I know, I know: I get about) and I’m confident that the dishes issuing from Copita’s kitchen are as good as the ‘nueva cocina vasca’ of its cult northern Spanish counterpart." READ REVIEW

"And what of the food? Ah, yes. Mostly it is excellent. Compared with some other tapas joints in central London – Polpo, Polpetto, Spuntino, Opera Tavern – it's cheap here, but still high in quality." READ REVIEW

"We were so impressed with executive chef James Knight's dishes, though, that we went back, and ate our way through almost the entire menu. And we can recommend everything." READ REVIEW
