A tribute to Spanish food and an absolute success. No need of food pictures, just go and order half of the menu, you won't regret it. The exceptional food quality is perfectly matched to the kindest service I have ever experienced in a London's restaurant, friendly but absolutely prepared to assist with choosing from a rich wine list and gorgeous...

We have chosen this restaurant as a good place to go for a romantic date, however I was very disappointed with the customer service. The reason for that is the pressure of many waitresses looking after your shoulders where you feel like “you are force to eat fast and go”, you cannot have conversation with each other without being interrupting...

Since we met Abel and his guys in Cambio de Tercio several years ago, the experience in the restaurant during so many visits has been extraordinary. Finally a very good and design Spanish brand in London. Congrats to all the team for all this everending nice experience.

This is a nice Spanish restaurant worth visiting. We had dinner last night (12/02/17), sat at a table by the window and enjoyed a lovely mixture of cold and hot tapas. We've been here a few times and always a pleasure to visit whenever we fancy some tapas! The ham, lamb chops, patatas, prawns and everything else from the tapas... More

The food beats all the other tapas restaurants I've tried. I think the outstanding dishes are patatas bravas (really clever interpretation), octopus, 8 hour tomatoes (they don't taste like tomatoes, more like apricots!), and the aubergine and carrots dish (I forget what it was called). As for mains - best Spanish suckling pig I've tasted. All the wines were Spanish,... More

The best tapas in london by far. I've been to most well known tapas restaurants in london and this is without a doubt the nicest. Friendly staff and incredible food.

I ate at a lot of spanish restaurants. This one was the worst. First of all service was rude and service people acting like an enemy. Pastas was trying to be best but only at view, tastes was awful. And besides very overpriced. Never again.

Treated us like royalty as we waited at nearby wine bar, owned by same family. We were seated late in evening but never rushed. Food was lovely and service was excellent. Very enjoyable evening.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
