A breathtaking feat of imagination and dexterity, Hovarda is simply unlike anything you've experienced before. Aegean-inspired with plenty of glamour thrown in, this one is quite simply unforgettable.

Where to begin on their illustrious interior design? Every room boasts its own personality; it's up to you which one speaks directly to your soul. A moody, seductive bistro sits underneath the reign of a dozen shrouded lanterns, creating a monochrome space that is perfectly symmetrical. Turn a corner and the room bristles with the light of hundreds of glass bottles, another deep-dives into the ocean with sculpted fish amongst an indigo colour scheme, and the upstairs spaces afford immense views of the whole establishment in all its gilded glory.

Complimenting this unmatchable view is Hovarda's thoughtful menu that is delicate yet hearty at the same time. Begin a mix of hot and cold mezze before proceeding to some seafood delicacies like decadent lobster linguine, a sumptuous octopus stifado and a whole seabream with salty samphire and seaweed.

From the land you will find a comforting roast chicken with creamy barley, wagyu beef rump with sautè mushrooms, and lamb shank with oyster mushrooms and sundried tomatoes, mixed with a generous sprig of oregano. Consider a sharing plate too. Whole Dover soles, whole turbots and roast racks of Cornish lamb are just a few showstoppers on the menu. Finally, employ the cocktail masters for a suitably fashionable sip. Hovarda is just as much about the Soho lifestyle as it is about beautiful eats.
