Alma is a contemporary restaurant rooted in the rich culinary culture of Spain. Dishes are unique and delicate, evoking the memories and soul of traditional Spanish cuisine but with influences from around the world. Alma is run by husband and wife duo Chef Sergio Chamizo, who runs the kitchen, and Maria Polanco, who runs the front of house. They aim for Alma to be a place where diners can feel as if they are coming over for dinner in their own home.
Chef Sergio was born in Barcelona and raised in Madrid where he attended culinary school. He trained throughout Spain and Andorra, then made the move to London in 2002 where he resided for over 11 years. The experience of living and cooking in such a multicultural city like London has greatly shaped Sergio’s cooking and Alma is the expression of that. The backbone of Alma’s dishes is Spanish, infused with international flavors.
