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 decided to go out on April 12th to mark the day. We were lucky to get a table at this lovely Spanish tapas restaurant. There were tall heaters outside that kept us warm. There was a musician playing beautiful guitar whilst we were dining. The staff is very polite. Service was quick and efficient. Food was delicious. Would definitely go back.

We were probably the first customers to arrive to eat on the pavement after lockdown. Very friendly reception with brave waiters in shirtsleeves despite the snow that had fallen earlier in the day.Some tables has gas heaters - ours did but there was no gas until halfway through the meal.
Usual high standard of food and it was wonderful to be able to eat out again.

This is one of the best Spanish restaurants in London with excellent food and
prompt/friendly service. You can certainly eat more cheaply elsewhere, but not
to the same standard. The restaurant has a vibrant atmosphere without being too
noisy to hold a proper conversation and the artwork on the walls is always cause
for comment!

Incredible and reliable service. Food never disappoints. Authentic and feels like the best Spanish restaurant in London. In fact, you feel you are in Spain when inside Cambio.

My family and I go back again again and again. No need to look for other options.

This place is just lovely. It's quiet with wonderful service, the ladies who looked after us are clever and polite and courteous - as well as being beautiful - and food fantastic. We had a lovely corner table and the food is delicious.

It's expensive, but the pride they take in presenting it makes it really worthwhile.

I had joked to my guest that it's Piers Morgan's favourite restaurant. That didn't go down too well, but when I also mentioned that it's Rafa Nadal's favourite bolt hole in London they were more impressed!

Highly recommended.

Food was outstanding and service excellent. Did feel a little rushed at the end, clearly the staff wanted to clear the table for next booking.

A very bad experience.... chucked out of the restaurant before we had finished our meal and wine, even the bill was presented before we even asked for it ... and it was only 7.30pm.
They don’t deserve their ratings and I would never go there again!

Very friendly and attentive service, excellent and authentic food, wonderful 50 gin list and good wine selection across regions of Spain. If you miss the homeland, or the incredibly good food of your last trip to Spain, Cambio de Tercio is a good option to 'matar el gusanillo'. Just a pity it is mostly tapas, perhaps because of Covid, main dish selection would be very much welcome in future visits

We sat in the back room and the door was kept open for reasons relating to Covid-19 guidelines so it was quite chilly. Also our table was booked for 6.30pm so we thought we had until 8.30pm but we were only told at 7.50pm that we only had the table until 8pm. I think this could have been made clear when we made the reservation. Otherwise, the food was wonderful and there was a lovely ambience.
