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”

We enjoyed the food very much, especially the fact that it came in a particular order to compliment the tastes of various tapas ordered.
Portion sizes larger than expected. Service was attentive and friendly.
Not very cheap... but I would go back

It was my birthday and they looked after me and my girlfriend wonderfully. The food was excellent, a highlight being the 8 day fermented tomatoes! Who knew you could do that with a tomato? I had also chosen here as the location to propose to my girlfriend and the staff celebrated with us. I think they thought I may have been milking the complimentary Cava having a birthday and an engagement at the same sitting, but for me the evening was a great success!! Be prepared to spend £200 but also be prepared to sample really good food, wine and Cava.

This cozy neighbourhood restaurant is a gem, friendly staff is long term to stay, they care and they mean it. Whether family or a romantic dinner, you will enjoy the colourful decoration and amazing food and the extensive wine list. I recommend the Volver, and something seasonal but very tasty is the Oxtail.

Outstanding dining experience at Cambio de Tercio - so glad we decided to try this place. The food was really superb - every dish, and their wine list is magnificent. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I only regret that I do not live closer (visiting from the US) as this otherwise would for sure be a regular destination for me. I will definitely return.

The four of us had a very good meal. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced for the quality of the wines. Service was a bit rushed though - glasses refilled way too frequently and dishes yanked away before the last crumb is picked up. I understand they were making sure the table is available for the next seating but it did feel rather unnecessarily rushed, especially considering we were 25 minutes early for our reservation. The food is quite good though and the noise level ok. Would recommend.

This charming neighbourhood restaurant has the warmest kindest service that makes you feel at home even on an awkward date. The food is delicious, the wive selection is amazing and each time I take a suggestion from the staff, the taste is great.
You are likely to see the same service people, who treat you very friendly, they are happy to be working in this lively place. I would chose it over any place for the ambiance: perfect for special dinners, dates or business lunch.
Cheers to staff and ling live Cambio de Tercio
