About Volta Do Mar
Our menus showcase the wonderful cuisines of Portugal and the Portuguese speaking world, touching on Cape Verde, Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, Goa, and Macau.
After reconfirming via email our booking, to be called to confirm booking once more is excessive, but possibly understandable in these times. For a voicemail to be left at 15:46 on said day of table saying if no response by 16:00 that the booking would be cancelled is scandalous. The restaurant was rushed off its feet unsurprisingly, with more responsive and reasonable staff. Food was adequate.
Absolutely loved it. It’s a cozy lovely place. Isabel was so pleasant and kind. I had tomato soup and moqueca. The spice was just as I like it with plenty of herbs. And the fish so tender. My daughter had some amazing croquetes and a very tender pork loin. Farófias was equally splendid. The portions are small, which I like. Fado, not my favourite, was later replaced by ore modern and uplifting sound.
Fabulous evening, great cocktails, not to be missed. Great Portuguese food with influences from countries around the world where the Portuguese have left their mark. The wine list is all from Portugal and we had a red and a white that were both outstanding.
We had our small wedding reception at Volta do Mar. By far the best restaurant we have been to in London. Delicious food and drinks, incredibly friendly and knowledgable staff, and a wonderful atmosphere. They also accommodated our dietary requests and exceeded all expectations we had for the evening. Would highly, highly recommend this restaurant! Thanks to everyone for making it such a special night.
My second visit was the night before the second lockdown...it didn’t disappoint, ended on a high for the last meal out for a month! The food is excellent and I would say fairly unique in the London offering. Their josper grilled bread is insane! I could eat it at every meal, every day for a long time.. A surprise hit was the josper sweet potato main with beans. Portions are good and prices are reasonable. Portuguese wine is my favourite so I was on to a winner here anyway with so many Douros on offer.
Excellent service, delicious super fresh seafood!
What a great dinner....what a gem restaurante in the heart of London. From the starters to the dessert, passing through an amazingly cooked fish of the day and fish stew. Excellent, extremely welcoming and professional service. Cannot recommend enough.
Exceptional food and service. Everything was sublime. From the prawn and fish fry, to the seafood stew and roast chicken with chicken skin fries. 10/10
Excellent service, delicious food and drinks. Will come back
Great Restaurant,very friendly food and drink the best thanks a lot for fantastic time.
Very average / forgettable.
Had the BBQ menu. It was an excellent evening in every way (including social distancing in spite of a thunderstorm). The gazpacho was the best I have ever had! . Have left a review on Next Door to encourage other locals to visit.
Amazing food service was great
Very friendly and helpful staff. Relaxed atmosphere. Lovely fresh fish and great quality food.
Very good food as always, fantastic service, very friendly staff. Very well decorated and very clean.
Really enjoyed the interesting and eclectic menu. Will definitely go back.
We had a 4pm booking so restaurant was very quiet. We went after reading a review in a Sunday newspaper. We weren't disappointed. The food was exquisite, the service excellent without being OTT. Great value for money. Definitely recommend.
Lovely meal great service and value
A lovely restaurant close to Drury Lane / Covent Garden with great food for a date night with my Husband - we both enjoyed the charcuterie, and the masala cornbread cubes; with seafood rice and the pineapple and pudin deserts - I had a lovely rose to drink and he had a couple of beers! Service was attentive and speedy, but not intrusive - I will be recommending this spot, and I think it is likely we'll be back very soon.
We had a great evening and were all thoroughly impressed with the excellent quality of the food and the superb service. The menu has some unexpected and different dishes which showcases portuguesse food and the fusion of styles and flavours of Brazil, Mozambique etc There is an excellent selection of wines and the staff are very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend a visit and try what the staff recommend. Will definitely be back!
Excellent food and service, and lovely decor and ambience.. I will be recommending to my hotel guests and colleagues..
Excelente service specially Arthur what a good guy
Warm and calm ambient, exceptional food and wine, extremely professional service and at the same time very friendly. I will be definitively back whenever I am in London. I can recommend all the starters. At our table we had the picanha, the feijoada and the seafood rice. I only have positive words for my experience at the Volta do Mar.
I really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the staff during my recent experience at Volta Do Mar. Well done and thanks!
