A word from Kopapa
Kopapa is an all day restaurant located in Seven Dials, Covent Garden and is the second London offering from world-renowned chef Peter Gordon, co-founder of The Providores & Tapa Room in Marylebone Village. Kopapa serves fantastic breakfasts all week and is truly one of London's hottest brunch spots at weekends.

The all day menu offer is an international culinary adventure and a showcase for Peter’s wonderful cuisine. Whether it’s a mid-week lunch, pre-theatre supper, or a special dinner with a group of friends, Kopapa offers an exciting dining experience in the heart of the West End. The cocktail offering is innovative, the wine list concise but comprehensive and the bar - one of theatre land's best. And if sitting and sipping as the world passes by is your thing, the outdoor terrace provides Covent Garden’s best vantage point. Kopapa also offers delicious post theatre supper - and remember, we are always happy to cater for larger groups and children.

    OMG, after 4 days of eating out for business and personal travel, Peter Gordan's Fusion dishes at Kopapa are the most memorable. Had dinner before the theatre and still thinking about the unique butternut squash soup with salted coconut and coriander. Even the flat bread caught my attention. I had two small plates: king scallop with cauliflower puree was so delicious that I had to close my eyes in delight, and the spring rolls were crispy but not greasy. Add a carafe of nice chardonnay, and my dinner was absolutely perfect. I browsed through the 3 cookbooks for sale but none had these recipies, otherwise I may have bought all three and lugged them to the theatre with me! Only distraction was how crowded and loud the restaurant is.

    I booked the pre-theatre menu for my boyfriend and I thinking it was the 1st time I would have been there. Once I arrived I realised I had been on a Saturday for a coffee with my sister. On that occasion it was very busy - Service was slow so we ended up leaving a little frustrated. My recent experience was nicer. We ate around 5 or 6pm - it was much quieter so we could chat without struggling to hear and service was better! The waiter helped me with my food selection - glad I went for it in the end. However, my boyfriend had the cod and lentils- it didn't have any flavour. He also had a Bloody Mary that even to my Taste was very bland - literally just tasted of tomato juice. Portions were a little small too.

    We had a selection of the small dishes and the only disappointing bit was the beef tartare. The rest was delicious. I did find the larger dishes a bit pricey though.

    This is a buzzy restaurant with a lively atmosphere, The food is unusual with a Middle Eastern flavour and unusual combinations, I ate from the prix fixe menu and it offered unusual choices - Japanese marinated smoked salmon, and pork belly with miso mash and spring greens - for a reasonable £21 for three courses. The cheapest wine was £25 but it was flavoursome and smooth so not bad value.

    We were quite excited by the reviews we read before but disappointed on the day. The dishes have exotic descriptions but the product on the plate doesn't live up to them. We were expecting some unusual takes on dishes but found them rather bland.

    Went there for our wedding anniversary. Nice and busy with pre-theatre customers. Cocktails went down well but took some time to come as one lady behind the bar. Food choice great with large main meal or small plate options, we opted for several small & weren't disappointed. The food took us around the world, from Korean chilli beef tartare to Indian tempura spiced Dahl inari pockets which we're amazing as was the deep fried urfa squid. Only thing that was a bit off was having to ask 2 people for a top up of water. But apart from that a very enjoyable evening.

    Kopapa is a great spot for pre theatre drinks with a really good wine list. Its not a particularly intimate venue which is worth a note however for a table of 4 or more it was perfect. Great service and really great food and of course a fantastic location. Not particularly cheap however!

    My boyfriend and I went for brunch two years ago and it was superb. A few months later we went for dinner and... not so good. We gave it another chance on Thursday for breakfast and it was not even mediocre. I wouldn't have paid half of what I actually paid for what we had. Boring and tasteless. They've definitely gone downhill.

    Visited over the weekend with a group of friends. Service was faultless, staff were very friendly and helpful, and able to confidently point out gluten free dishes and make suggestions on how to amend dishes to ensure they were gluten free. We worked our way through the small plate section of the menu - everything was delicious, and pretty reasonably priced for the area. Would definitely recommend a visit.

    6 of us went for dinner at Kopapa on a Friday evening. Having previously been for brunch (excellent), I was expecting good things and was not disappointed. We shared a platter of olives, chorizo, baba ganoush, bread and some other bits, and some corn croquettes. Our group then went a little freestyle, with two people have a big plate each (duck breast, pork belly & noodle broth) with the rest of us sharing 9 small plates and sides. The small plates were very good, plenty big enough to share and lots of variety - chilli beef tartare, lamb samosas, grilled aubergine and a few other things that were down the other end of the table. Along with this we had a couple of bottles of great value New Zealand Pinot Noir. All for just under £40 a head.

    Kopapa serves a great variety of small and mid plates along with large plates so it is easy to have a tasty pre theatre meal, sharing several different plates. I have been to Kopapa several times before theatre, always with friends, and we have all been impressed with the variety of choices, the speed and friendliness of service. It's a great addition to SevenDials and now becoming an institution. Long may it reign.

    Buzzy atmosphere, relaxed but good service. Two of us had dinner here on a Thursday eve - we had six small plates between us and they were all amazing. Highlights were the caramelised onion, potato, edamame & feta tortilla and the Teriyaki glazed mackerel, avocado puree & sweetcorn. Cocktails also delicious - try the Mims. Disappointed that we had no room for pudding as they all sounded equally mouthwatering. Will be going back to try them!

    I've been to Kopapa before (for breakfast and lunch) and this time I was here for dinner. The food is great and the staff are friendly, but the service is REALLY slow. Sometimes it felt like we'd been forgotten, and when they took our main plates away, it was quite a while before we had the opportunity to ask for the dessert menu. I do like this restaurant and the food is good, and whilst the staff are friendly and helpful when you get their attention, you do get left alone a bit, which is surprising since the restaurant isn't that big.

    I booked a table for a special occasion on the recommendation of a friend. Was disappointed to find the Covent Garden branch quite dirty, touristy, and food quite bland. Prices are obviously at the higher end for brunch so was expecting something a bit more memorable. Staff were pleasant enough but disinterested and never once asked how the meal was even when i left half of mine after discovering a hair... Wont be going back!

    Had to find a restaurant with a good choice of both vegetarian and meat choices on a Friday evening around Covent Garden and Kopapa did not disappoint. The dishes and flavours are an interesting blend of texture and tastes. The service was exemplary. We recommend the mano tapioca for dessert - refreshingly different.

    The choice of foods here is fantastic as they are original and interesting takes on some regular dishes. My only criticism was that when I ordered the Caesar salad without anchovies on it they were still included. The waiter was attentive and took it away immediately, however the kitchen staff simply removed the anchovies and sent the same dish back out. This was not the best solution as I could still taste the fish throughout the salad. Having said that the food was very nice indeed and the waiting staff were very good at the service they provided.

    Arrived for Sunday brunch, the restaurant was reassuringly full and we were directed straight to a table. Had a nice fizzy cocktail to start and then the hot smoked salmon (cooked in the smoker but served chilled) with spinach, poached eggs and hollandaise on toast. This was all delicious but the sides were very expensive IMO (£4.50 for half and avocado). Then ordered a dessert of chocolate doughnut (delicious) and my girlfriend had a milkshake which they made up specially for her. Overall a good experience and would go back to try other options on the menu.

    In an exciting part of Seven Dials, the young had voted with their feet in flocking to this light, bright restaurant site. The resulting provision had high noise levels, adequate food well presented, a good feel of fiesta. Not really my scene, but that is hardly their fault. They supply just what their target clientele wants.

    I came here for brunch with three friends. The waitress couldn't answer any of our questions regarding food/drinks and didn't seem to know what she was doing. Not the most friendly place in general. We spent quite some money on food and drinks and really didn't appreciate how rudely we were spoken to by the manager who reminded us that we had gone over our allotted time slot! We asked whether he could seat us somewhere else; we had just bought another £32 bottle of Prosecco, which was still half full. He suggested we leave and just take the bottle with us! We left the place 27 minutes over our 'agreed time'. None of us could see people waiting for our table and around us were plenty of free tables for four, even six people.

    This was my first time at Kopapa and may not be a representative view of the food overall as we had a fruit salad and the porridge, probably the simplest options on the menu. The coffee was delicious, friendly and courteous staff that weren't overbearing but were attentive at the same time. Perfect spot for pre-work breakfast as it had a liveliness to it but was still relaxed. Overall, I would rate Kopapa 4/5 stars if you're after a breakfast location, I imagine the more complex dishes are delicious as well.
