Restauranteur and chef Victor Garvey is partnering with his father for the project, fulfilling a long held ambition of theirs to open what the latter describes as “the kind of laid-back wine and cheese joint we like to go to ourselves.” It’s intended, says Victor, to be “fun, casual and affordable, a place anyone can drop into at any time on their way to or from somewhere else,”.

Dishes feature Picos de Valdeon Azul, La Serena and Tetilla cheeses, while charcuterie will be sourced from all around Spain and include several varieties of jamon iberico de Bellota 5J. Among the new dishes created for Sibarita are Crispy ‘Calamares a la Romana’ with Alegria Pepper and Toasted Coriander; Free- range Chicken ‘Chilindron’ with Crispy Serrano Ham Salpicon; and Oven- baked Torta Del Casar cheese with Farmer’s Market Crudités and Garlic Bread.

    We booked online for a pre opera lunch. Very easy booking. A great find, down a quiet street with a window on to an alley which was fun for people watching. Food was delicious, good sized tapas made fresh & full of flavour. The Cava was also a delight. Staff are friendly & helpful. We will be back for our next pre theatre eats 😊 Thank You

    My husband and I just flew in from Chicago and stumbled upon Sibarita. The tapas portions were delicious and generous. The ambiance is cozy, as there are not very many tables in the restaurant. It was a perfect evening to start off our trip.

    Filthy. Dirty bathrooms, dirty hallway, dirty stairs even dirty, stained menus. An empty restaurant and zero service. In the interests of our own well being we left. Won’t be back. The restaurant has the air of decay about it,

    If your wondering where abouts the place is, it's just behind the main square of covenant garden. It's a small but cozy little place with low ceilings and a low lighting which makes it feel romantic and intimate. The food was really nice the only thing I was slightly sad about was the iberco pork belly which was whitish almost translucent in look rather than your classic Parma ham type cured meats (which was what we wanted) however I guess that's my fault for not knowing. The crouquetta of the day was unbelievable though and Al the aoli sauces were insanely good. If your a fan of garlic you will be in heaven. The staff were great too. One thing to bear in mind is that as it is a very small restaurant, you are very close to the tables either side of you. I mean VERY close. Luckily either side of us were nice couples on dates so all good but if i was sat next to a loud obnoxious couple it would ruin my whole night. I would definitely go back and the wine and food is really good!

    A lovely cosy relaxed room, with generous portions of tapas. My padron peppers were tasty if a tad soggy, the octopus was amazing, the tuna tartare on toast was unexpectedly good, and the spinach croquettes were larger than expected (all four of them!)... I left feeling well fed!

    The food was nice but the service was rubbish. We had booked but they tried to give us the table by the door where you would have to get up every time someone came in or left. Gave us another table as it was only half full anyway. We were there for about an hour & 3/4 & in that time they turned away 4 people as they said they were booked! By the time we left there was a party of 2 left who were only let in because they said they would be done in an hour! Not sure the owners would be impressed! Also of the 7 items we ordered, 3 were unavailable because they 'had been very busy yesterday'!

    This is a great spot if you're in Covent Garden and want to avoid the tourist crowd. Really good tapas which don't come.in annoying 3 or 5 portions when you're sharing. I will be going back.

    Went here for lunch. We were the only table at lunchtime but the tapas was amazing. One of the best tapas I have had. We had the sangria to go with it. I prefer mine fruity but this was alcohol heavy. I even left my wallet and hadn't noticed but the kind staff contacted me and I managed to get my wallet back. Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves tapas.

    Wonderful evening, a little delight tucked away in Soho. Food and wine was fabulous! Surprisingly quiet for a Saturday night. very minor downside was the music was a little loud and service took ages to clear away empty dishes. Otherwise a very nice evening thank you!

    Service was poor - from waiting 10-15 mins after ordering initial drinks, to non-receipt of ordered food. 2 waitresses were shocking, more interested in chatting behind the bar then serving. The front of house guy whilst friendly was oblivious to what was happening. Shame should have been good.

    It's a fun restaurant with great staff cooking and serving great food. I was catching up with a family friend I hadn't seen in 6 months and we both really enjoyed ourselves. The restaurant is small and although it has slightly fewer menu options than some other tapas restaurants we were both really happy with the result, and the restaurant has a friendly and welcoming vibe. I'm happy to recommend it.

    We had read some good reviews before going and have been many times to Spanish London places. Fino, Bar O fine, Sabor, polpo etc. Sibarita was the best. We have a place in Spain and know terrific Tapas when we have it. The Pork Chops were amazing but frankly everything was fantastic including the warm welcome and service. And much better value for money as well. It was Canada Day and the noise outside could have spoiled it but nothing could take from this experience, Can't wait to go again and bring friends.

    Manager seems a little pushy of trying to get us to order higher priced food items. Food is so so for a Covent Garden restaurant. Service certainly way below our expectations based on the reviews that we saw on Open Table before reservation.

    I had booked a table for dinner for two for a birthday meal. When I arrived, I was told by a member of staff, Kamile, that only bar seats at a barrel were available unless we would take an hour or less! I was surprised and concerned as both the seating at bar seats and the limited time of an hour were not mentioned when I made the booking. I mentioned this to Kamile who was rude and argumentative and said it was not the restaurant's fault and that it was the fault of OpenTable! I told her that it was the responsibility of the restaurant to make these things clear, not OpenTable. She was dismissive and rude. We ended up having a rushed dinner in an hour! Very disappointing. The only saving grace was the other member of staff, Jorge Riera, who apologised on behalf of Kamile and the restaurant.

    Sibarita is a delightful, authentic Spanish restaurant in Covent Garden. Lovely music and ambience. The tapas dishes were ok - the lamb chops were the best, nice and pink and very tasty. Squid was rather chewy. Several dishes were coated in paprika or some other spicy seasoning, rather too much for our liking. All in all it was a fun place to go to.

    This was a dreadful waste of money. No olives, no ham, over cooked greasy padron. And they call themselves a tapas restaurant. No one should have to endure this: Barrafina is round the corner along with Brindisa.
