I visited a gorgeous, rooftop restaurant in central London to try its eight-course tasting menu and I was not disappointed.

Sometimes, when you go out for dinner at a beautiful restaurant it can be so hard to choose just one plate.

But, the Taste of the Mediterranean menu at Cavo in Tottenham Court gave me the opportunity to try eight, unique dishes so I truly didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything the restaurant had to offer.

The first course was crispy octopus served with kumquat, dried tomato and smoked salsa brava.

I have a love-hate relationship with octopus, but when it’s done right I think it’s delicious and I can confirm that the octopus at Cavo is perfection.

The small pieces of octopus were dainty and a brilliant taster to get us into the set menu.

The next course was grilled courgettes with smoked ricotta and pine nuts.

I have to admit, neither courgettes or ricotta are foods I would usually go for, but together they were unexpectedly very tasty.

The smokiness of the ricotta balanced the freshness of the courgette and I loved the added crunch I got from the pine nuts.

Then, we were given pan-fried scallops in champagne butter with chilli., tagliolini in an aged parmesan and back truffle sauce and Josper Pluma Iberico pork served on a bed of mashed potatoes with peperone Crusco.

I wish I could say that one of these three plates in particular stole the show but, honestly, I could not choose a favourite.

The scallops were sweet and moist, cooked perfectly, and the champagne butter sauce really complemented the flavour.

The tagliolini was creamy and rich and the earthiness of the truffle gave it some more depth making it even more delicious.

I absolutely loved the pork, it was tender and soft and the mashed potatoes were to die for.

To finish the savoury portion of the meal, we were given a whole sea bass with a sauce vierge and burnt lemon served with Greek chips and a Greek salad.

I love a Greek salad and, paired with the fish, it was a lovely, fresh way to finish the meal.

For dessert, we were served a basque cheesecake which was creamy, sweet and light.

Not to mention, the interior of Cavo is stunning – it is based on a rooftop right next to Tottenham Court Road station and the walls are almost all floor to ceiling windows, giving guests breathtaking views of the city.

If you are looking for something new to try in central London then I would one hundred per cent recommend Cavo to you for your next meal out.
