Duende is a fairly new cocktail and tapas bar in Covent Garden,having opened in March 2016,以维克多·加维在世界各地餐馆的烹饪经验为灵感，提供现代西班牙美食。
这是一家非常小的餐馆，有22个座位和一个光滑的，dark interior.The seating is a combination of tables and bar seats.I would recommend booking in advance as it is so busy the wait for a table as a walk in would be too long.
We were sat on the bar seats,right next to the entrance so was slightly uncomfortable and also disruptive,因为门一直开着又关着。These are minor things though and the service was brilliant.
Sitting so close to the entrance meant I had the advantage of overhearing the staff offering glasses of free Cava to diners who had arrived and whose table was not yet available,which I thought was really good customer service.
他们有一个令人印象深刻的选择轧vwin.com徳赢网棉厂，以供选择杜松子酒和滋补剂，还有一系列有趣的鸡尾酒。I like my cocktails rum based so I went for a Travesura,这是加了香料的朗姆酒，香柠檬，fresh sage and muscavado.阿米特喝了一杯杜松子酒，他选择的杜松子酒是西普史密斯。我真的很喜欢我的鸡尾酒，看着酒吧招待做的，我知道它是用高超的技术和知识制造的。
It is a tapas restaurant so we ordered a few dishes to share.Disappointingly some dishes had run out and it was only 8pm but the food we ordered more than made up for this.I would like to go back and try some of the dishes we had originally wanted to order though.
第一批到达的是茄子和山羊奶酪脆饼，还有晶莹的金合欢蜂蜜和迷迭香。它们的温度很高，tasted freshly cooked and were utterly delicious.
I love padron peppers so these were definitely going to be ordered when spotted on the menu and were really tasty.他们用少量的木炭盐调味，然后用烈性的Aji Amarillo和大蒜蘸酱调味。
阿米特最喜欢的菜是一层松露和烟熏土豆上的水煮鸭蛋和烤面包。The smokiness was divine and upon chatting with the staff,听说他们早上抽土豆。I can just imagine the aromas!！
Our final choice for tapas was Lamb Chops with a Rosemary & Tarragon Aioli.他们看起来没有味道，但男孩是！They were deceivingly seasoned and marinated really well.A nice dish to end the mains with.
接下来是甜点，由于某种原因，网站上的菜单有不同的选择，有些已经用完了。Luckily,我们要的菜是现成的。This was the Turron de Gijona Ice Cream Sandwiches and they absolutely stole the show.
They were perfect in terms of texture,味道，浇头和部分。我们每个人都有一个，幸好不用分享！！
I thought the prices at Duende were reasonable,尤其是考虑到位置和食物在执行和味道上是完美的。I liked the play of flavours,现代的曲折，但真正的味道和彻底享受我的饭。
I was a bit disappointed that all the items on the menu were not available and also not 100% comfortable sitting at the bar,但我知道这是一家小餐馆，除此之外，really felt that the food was brilliant,服务很好，价格也不错。
