The Salt Yard reviews

For tapas in Britain The Salt Yard ain't bad, though you have to go to Spain to understand the difference! I go The Salt Yard quite regularly and enjoy it every time.


By Chris B.

Food was good ..However little effort was made to ensure we had a great time.. quite annoying when you order a bottle of wine and are told by the waitress to wait to be moved to the bar by her and then rudely told by an arrogant Manager to move to the side because the bar is full and the table is booked later. Bad organisation and arrogance always leaves a bad taste in your mouth.. makes you want to forget the whole experience.

great relaxing place to go for some wine and tappas after work, very friendly staff, great for grabbing drinks!

Finding a great tapas restaurant in London is a bit like trying to find a cab late at night - they’re few and far between, which is why Salt Yard really triumphs. A cool and trendy eatery just minutes from Goodge Street tube, perfect for a business lunch by day or for a romantic meal in the evening.

The Venue
The decor is rustic, with solid wooden tables, big wine glasses and white linen napkins. Along one side of the restaurant there is a bustling bar, with high leather chairs where you can view the leg of Serrano ham, waiting to be sliced. Tables upstairs, just opposite the bar, offer great views of all the activity going on below.

The Atmosphere
The staff are attentive, but not overly so and dressed as you would expect in a top London restaurant. The vibe is cool and airy, especially when they open the big windows on the front on a warm day. By lunchtime, the clientele includes lots of media types from nearby Charlotte Street on business lunches and by night, there’s a more romantic feel, with lots of couples dining together.

The Food
Salt Yard is one of those establishments where, whatever you order, you know it’s going to be good. Particular highlights include the mussel, squid and crab arancini, which arrives in a row of five sat on a little dollop of chilli aioli. When you bite into the crispy golden coating, you can immediately taste the freshness of the seafood as well as the underlying hint of saffron and the creaminess of the risotto rice. A selection of charcuterie meats and Manchego cheese served on a heavy wooden board makes you feel like you’re dining in a typical Catalan restaurant after spending the day soaking up the sun.

Dishes range in price from around £5 for the jamon croquetas through to £9 for the roasted scallops with caramelised cauliflower puree. You can easily over order here, especially with a menu as impressive as this; however, staff suggest choosing three dishes per person.

The Drink
There’s a great selection of Spanish and Italian wines ranging in price from £15 through to £65 for a dry and floral white Rioja or heavy, spicy Chianti.

The Last Word
Salt Yard is a strong contender for the title of best tapas restaurant in the capital.
