Spanish café, bar and restaurant chain

Tapas Revolution is on a mission to bring Spanish food and its culture to the UK.

Founded by celebrity chef Omar Allibhoy, its first restaurant opened in 2010 in Shepherd’s Bush and on the back of its success, a second site was launched less than a year later at Bluewater. There are now nine restaurants nationwide.

Investment rationale

In 2017, we invested £2.5m of growth capital into Tapas. Having launched two new restaurants, we invested a further £2m in 2018.

They have successfully opened new restaurants in Newcastle, Bath, Stratford, Brighton and Lakeside since the original investment.
