Spanish-Moroccan restaurant El Cantara is set to open in Soho tomorrow

Located on Frith Street, the restaurant and bar aims to bring the "best of Spain and Morocco" to London, with a range of Moroccan and Spanish culinary classics and an "authentic" western Mediterranean decor.

Head chef Noureddine Khouyi, who made his name in Mamounia in Marrakech, before coming to London to work at Isis and Pasha, has devised a Moorish themed menu with co-owner and chef patron Hamza Harrak.

Dishes include Beef Tagine served with Cous Cous, Paella Valencian, Gambas al Ajilo and Sweet Potato Croquetas.

The menu will also showcase Argan Oil, a light and extremely rare oil with a distinctive, nutty flavour.

The restaurant has been decorated in the Moorish style, and kitted out with artefacts from both Andalucia and North Africa.  The ground floor is decked out in the style of a Spanish taverna, while the upstairs restaurant features a Moroccan theme.
