Fodor's Review

Ibérico pig's head terrine and foie gras and Manchego cheeseburgers are just a few of the outstanding Spanish and Italian tapas dishes found at the Opera Tavern, opposite historic Drury Lane Theatre. Clamber in at the overcrowded ground-floor tapas bar (avoiding the acoustically challenged second-floor dining salon if possible) and, after enjoying a snack of crispy pig's ears or Guindilla peppers, opt for rich empanadas of venison, Italian Scotch eggs, braised cuttlefish,

wood pigeon with scarmorza cheese, or chargrilled Venetian-style sardines. Desserts like dulche de leche panna cotta hit the spot, and watch out for the £35 or £40 tapas set meals for groups of 7 and up.
