About Salt Yard

Salt Yard is an award-winning bar and restaurant serving modern tapas inspired by the flavours and produce of Spain and Italy.

The tapas are complemented by charcuterie and cheese boards and we have a wide selection of excellent wines and sherries.

Flexibility is key to Salt Yard. Customers can enjoy a full spread of tapas: or come in simply for a glass of red wine and a plate of cheese, a coffee and a delicious pudding, or even just a perfect martini and a handful of Marcona almonds.

Located in central London- a two minute walk from Goodge St tube station- we are perfectly placed for a business lunch, a pre-theatre meal or a night out with friends. The restaurant is also available for private hire.

Review by Andy Hayler
14/20
Upstairs is mainly a bar, with the main dining room downstairs. This is a tapas restaurant with an Australian chef and an English owner, which doesn’t sound promising but actually turns out well. The premises are quite cramped and completely full this evening as on my previous visit. Here are notes from the last meal I had here. This tapas restaurant was heaving this evening. The menu was appealing, with various classic tapas dishes plus a few variations using seasonal ingredients. A good example of this was a salad of Cornish crab, the crab meat covered with a layer of tender peas and baby broad beans and garnished with pea shoots; this simple dish had excellent ingredients which worked well together (15/20). Tortilla (Spanish omelette) was well made (13/20) as was patata brava, potatoes covered with slightly spicy tomato sauce (14/20). Scallops were pleasant but were not of the very best quality, though they were cooked correctly; the supposedly spicy dressing with them was a little bland (13/20). Tuna tartare with broad beans and green salsa was very pleasant, but the best dish was a chorizo with haricot beans and tomatoes. What stood out was the superb quality chorizo, which can often be a little stringy, and sometime covered in too much oil. In this case the meat was excellent and there was no hint of greasiness (15/20). Bread was rather dull and a fraction stale (11/20). Service was friendly and efficient. The wine list is a little unbalanced, mostly Spanish and Italian, and flipping from sub £30 wines quickly up to very serious wines like Gaja and Unico, with not much in between. Fagus 2004 at £41 for a £15 wine was no bargain but is a very well made wine.

Food was beautiful and service was outstanding! Would be great if there was slightly more room between tables, felt just slightly cramped. Would be back! Thanks

Expensive for pretty average food. Iberica has much better food and is better priced! I am afraid I won't be returning to Salt Yard.

Great service. Used to go to Salt Yard a lot in its first few years, the other night went back after some time, felt I did't have a great dish, all were decent, and thus the value for money was not great. It's perfectly fine,but it feels that it has not kept pace with others improving.Wish it well.

Been before and came here for my partners birthday. Wonderful staff, service and food. Our waiter (the Yorkshire lad) was so attentive. I had a very small tiny piece of hair from a brush used on the meat, in my food. The waiter and manager were brilliant at sorting it out, didn't even feel like there was a problem.
