Fun
Welcome to Copita, We love the Spanish culture of eating either standing up or on stools at bar level. We think it creates an upbeat, relaxed environment that you don’t get in a restaurant a lot of the time. Copita is a venue that reflects this. As listed in The 100 best dishes in London However, just because it is a bar environment doesn’t mean the food is secondary to the drink offering, on the contrary, food is a matter of life and death. Our menu is constantly evolving with a particular focus on sourcing great ingredients. All our wines are served by the glass, half bottle carafe and bottle. We love sherry too, so have 15 varieties by the glass to choose from. Sherry really is a fantastic accompaniment to food. Of course, you can get a lovely cold beer too, glass of top quality cava, as well as a San Sebastian style gin & tonic and a host of other spirits including pacharan, Spanish liqueurs and a small selection of Spanish brandy.

Food was great as was the wine but service was slow and staff seemed disinterested. Our prawns came out cold and weren’t returned for some time and our sweet potato bravas didn’t come out till we were right at the end of our meal (and wine) and so they went to waste. Nice atmosphere but wouldn’t recommend if you’re feeling anxious about social distancing as it’s very busy and compact inside.

We were sitting outside and it took them 45 minutes to send a waiter to serve us. Second round of drinks took us ages to find someone who will spot us so we can order.

The food is lovely, was just a bit disappointed about the black ink rice, it was just a bit too al dente and too salty. But in general everything was great.

No social distancing was adhered to! Asked to be moved outside as they sat people from other parties on the benches inside immediately next to us. Felt extremely uncomfortable, and it was extremely busy. Not a great example of following government guidelines.

Absolute shambles last night - didn’t end up eating here so cannot comment on the food. The place was packed - no social distancing at all - we were squeezed in between other groups. Had to scan to get menu which was fine but did not include wine list - asked for one but the server never came back with it. In the meantime a group of 4-5 people were herded into the space behind us to mill about. People seated after us had their drinks already and after waiting a bit longer and not feeling very comfortable with the whole situation we left. Don’t know if they were understaffed but they were definitely over-booked!

First time at Copita. Good service from all the staff. A little slow on the food being brought out as it was busy. Food was tasty and plates were clean when we left. Good reasonably priced wine. Overall a great little tapas place. May come back for more.

What a great place to have a very leisurely long lunch with old mates. Order a little at a time and it’s the perfect way to spend the afternoon.

I’ll be back

Service was excellent but food was really disappointing. Very average. Prawns had not been cleaned so jus oozed black on the first bite. All of the food arrived at exactly the same time instead of the usual tapas come when it’s ready. We wouldn’t have ordered it all in one go had we known. It meant half of it went cold and went uneaten. Service though was definitely 5 star. Shame the food wasn’t the same.

Birthday lunch with my team - food was delicious - octopus and scallops were particular highlights along with the coffee and burnt milk pudding. Staff are great, super friendly and helpful when it comes to menu choices and suggestions. Loved this place, have been before and was delighted to introduce my team to it, who all loved it too - will definitely be back!!

We fly from MIA to SFO and Copita is always our first destinations for a well earned travel day meal before heading on to our Cali vacation. Wonderful salsa verde, habanero salsa, guacamole, margaritas with one giant ice cube and veggie tacos (my favorite and never the same because they must use seasonal local fresh veggies).

Went to Copita after a shopping trip on Saturday, we were in there early about half 4 which was nice as it was quiet and we were able to chill and order drinks. On the whole we had a great time. The food was mainly nice, the mushroom croqs were yummy as was the special of the pork, the king prawns were not great, they were gritty which was a bit odd.. the service got worse as they got busier but it didnt affect our night. Dont order the fizzy water expecting it to be like usual - it tasted like andrews lol.. the cava was soooo good. The toilets were small but very clean - overall a great place.. brilliant atmosphere the Gins were amazing and the staff very nice and friendly.. the food could be improved as could the service, not in the way they served (they were very friendly and quite funny) but they def need another body in there when it gets busy.. i expect they would sell more food/drinks if they had another staff member. Loved it though and would def recommend!

Lovely interior and staff good but we found the tapas over sweet generally with too much honey, sugar or other sweeteners used throughout. Maybe we ordered badly?

I absolutely loved this place. It transported me back to my beloved times in Spain, specifically Barcelona and San Sebastian. The G&T's, the wine list, the food, the iberico, the ambiance and the peeps are all FAB! Can't wait to go back xx

SUNDAY BRUNCH WAS VERY ENJOYABLE. LOVELY VIEW. GOOD FOOD.

HOWEVER, WHEN A GROUP WAS SEATED PRACTICALLY ON TOP OF US WE FELT
THAT OUR "SPACE" HAD BEEN INVADED. SINCE THE DINING ROOM HAD MANY EMPTY
TABLES WE COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WHY A GROUP WAS SEATED SO CLOSE TO OUR
TABLE.
