Rambla | A Soho Spot from Encant's Victor Garvey | CLOSED
Food & Drink



NOTE: Rambla has now closed to become Sola.

Victor Garvey’s gone on a little Rambla.

It’s a journey that started with his work at Bravas Tapas, led to his first solo opening at Encant, and, via a recently-opened traditional wine and tapas bar just a few doors down, has now led to his second venture, Rambla – a much larger restaurant serving up Catalonian cuisine with a twist in Soho.

It’s a two-floored affair (with just the ground floor open at first), sporting terrazzo flooring, a sweeping open kitchen and soothingly misty-coloured panelled walls, designed to evoke the beachfront restaurants of Barcelona.

He’s sharing the classic cuisine of his childhood; appropriate since it’s named after a famous Barcelona street he lived near. The menu is organised into three sections – Cru, comprising raw & cured meats; Muntanya, proffering traditional Catalonian dishes from the mountains; and Mar – elegant seafood dishes like Mediterranean sea urchin with Iberico lard toast; calamari stuffed with prawn and lobster; and jumbo scallop with smoked roe sauce and crystallised veal jus.

Drinks, meanwhile, take on the tried-and-tested guise of a Spanish wine list (including plenty of cava), and a range of souped-up gin and tonics.

Essentially, it’s excellent. So we won’t rambla on
