Cambio de Tercio is the signature Restaurant of Cambio De Tercio Restaurant Group, located in the heart of Chelsea- South Kensington. It was open in June, 1995 and is a pioneer in offering modern and innovative Spanish cuisine in London.

We also offer traditional Spanish tapas, but it is our Chef Alberto Criado’s creative dishes, what defines us and has given us our name.

Our award winning “wine list” contains the largest and more diverse selection of Spanish wines anywhere in London.

Within our renovated premises, you can now have dinner at our Chef’s table situated in our kitchen or enjoy one of our Spanish style Gin & Tonic at our “C.Tonic” Bar, with a large 80+ premium gin’s menu.

The Restaurant has gained many accolades during the years including the much coveted “ PREMIO ALIMENTOS DE ESPANA 2003- awarded by the Spanish Minister of Agriculture, Fishing and Food as “The Best Spanish Restaurant in any country outside Spain, 2003”

Always a superb venue with traditional Spanish cuisine presented in an often unconventional but invariably spectacular fashion. This is as close as you can get to eating in Spain without crossing the Bay of Biscay.

Went to Cambio de Tercio twice while visiting London. They serve typical Spanish tapas, but elevated with some original twists. Loved the croquettes with ham and cheese, the jamón, the razor clams. Very nice waiters... a bit pricy, but it is S. Kensington. Will miss the place now that we're back in LA!

Inventive take on traditional tapas, such as patatas bravas which looked like cute chimney pots but were delicious alongside favourites like padron peppers. Fabulous sea bass, croquettes and an amazing slow roast tomato. Very good service and a simply lovely experience.

Really great tapas, and the staff helpfully suggested smaller portions so we could sample more. Good wine list, a perfect lunch venue. The decor is lovely, tables are well spaced. One minor gripe; we didn’t order bread, it was brought and left untouched and I noticed afterwards it was charged for. Seems odd given the price point of the restaurant! Otherwise really excellent.

Tapas is harder to rate because there are so many dishes! Most were fabulous, some less so. But what makes this restaurant so pleasurable is the wait staff--they are so friendly and fun that the night is a treat from start to finish! We went twice while on our vacation in London!

You will not want to tell your friends about Cambio de Tercio - it is far too good for them on all levels and you will want to keep the cooking, presentation, atmosphere and service to yourself. Simply one of the bets restaurants you will ever find on the planet.

It was a lovely experience - the waiters/waitresses were so nice and friendly. I truly enjoyed their service/attitude even though the speed was kind of slow at times (waitress forgot to bring pepper, forgot to bring us our check). The ambiance was great, and the manager's gregariousness was the highlight!
