Review of the Reviews

The Cutlery Chronicles (click to open in new window off site) Very good comprehensive review offering loads of info about the food at Copa, backed up by lots of good photos taken by professional photographers. Layla Kazim, the author admits she is not very knowledgeable concerning the intricacies of wine, the food however is given detailed coverage.   

 Is cava set to become London's coolest fizz? (click to open in new window off site) Evening Standard review penned by jobbing journo Andrew Neather, who is also the wine reviewer for this London free pickup title. Therefore plenty of intricate wine detail in a  piece of rambling prose that flutters between Cava promo and wine bar review.
