Volta do Mar
This autumn, Volta do Mar will open its doors, bringing an exciting flavour of Portugal to London’s Covent Garden. Founded by husband and wife team Simon Mullins (formerly Co-Founder of the Salt Yard Group) and Isabel Almeida Da Silva (Mirabelle, Delaunay) and located in a charming double fronted Georgian town house, the restaurant will celebrate Portuguese cuisine and its rich culinary influences from around the world.
Loosely translating as ‘return from the sea’, Volta do Mar will explore the regional cuisine of Portugal, from the classic staples to the dishes born of the country’s trading past and culinary interactions with countries such as Angola, Goa, Mozambique, Brazil, Macau and beyond. Born and raised in Portugal, chef George Tannock, who honed his skills at The Dorchester, The Fat Duck, Zuma, Treves & Hyde and most recently Sexy Fish, will take the helm as head chef and work closely with Simon and Isabel to bring their collective passion and inspiration to fruition.
