El Pirata celebrates 25th birthday with Back to ’94 Menu

The Spanish restaurant based in Mayfair is marking 25 years this month with a special Back to ’94 menu which sees a selection of dishes return to the prices they were when it first opened in 1994.

The bespoke menu will offer twelve tapas dishes and two wines at their original 1994 prices with each dish leaving change from a £10 note. 

The menu is set to feature calamares con arroz negro of black rice and squid; a gambas pil pil consisting of prawns in olive oil, garlic and dried hot chilli peppers; and a montaditos de jamon serrano of toasted bread with olive oil and fresh tomatoes topped with cured ham.

Two Riojas, Muga blanco and Añares crianza, will be available by the glass.

Gaining a loyal following said to include Johnny Depp, Brian May and Jose Mourinho, El Pirata has served over 6,000,000 tapas dishes since it first opened in 1994.

The Back to ’94 Menu is available until 29 June.
