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 had a fantastic pre Christmas lunch. The food was exceptional,and the service matched it. Our waiter was friendly,informative and happy to chat on our way out.
We had a lunch to remember and a great way to make our visit to London special.

I cannot fault the food or service at this lovely restaurant and my guests fell in love too, particularly with the 8 hours roasted tomatoes, the exceptional Octopua and melt in your mouth lamb cutlets

The ambiance and food were amazing, very friendly service. Can be very romantic.
There is a problem if you sit next to big groups, the noise level is very high and the acoustics are awful, but the staff is so kind, they did not want the noisy clients very seriously.
Will definitely go again

This is the second time in two months that I have been back to the restaurant. The staff are very friendly and helpful; the service is efficient but not obtrusive, and most importantly, the food is excellent.

A difficult review to do, very mixed. Attentive and friendly service but somewhat pushy. Some dishes good, others ordinary (pulpo especially), dishes and wine rather pricey. Seems like management is driving the staff to rush diners. Overall, not quite worth the expense - in common with a number of other London restaurants that have got ahead of themselves.

We received such a warm welcome and all the staff are charming. There is a wonderful sherry list which sits very comfortably beside the delicious tapas menu. We had the filet of sea bass cooked to perfection and an ox tail that was succulent and so tasty; even the carrots had the most delicious almond based sauce; we have yet to discover the secret ingredient to that! Oh and don't miss out on the croquettes either.
No room for pudding after this.
We will definitely return

Service is awesome. Each course is handled by individual chefs who would introduce the dishes right at your table. Staffs are friendly and attentive. Food is awesome. Restaurant suits both couples and groups. One of the finest dining experience in London!

This was our second time in Cambio de Tercio and once again we left very happy with the experience. The team is outstanding in catering to all your needs and their interpretation of the Spanish tapas does not cease to amaze me. The food is exquisitely prepared and the wine list is well worth the meal.
We will definitively go back to try all the tapas!

Everything was fine. We had the octopus for an appetizer and it was sensational.
My only negative was that the waitress wanted us to order all the dishes at once. We asked her to space the dishes but they all came out right away- faster than we could digest them. Nevertheless the food is terrific.

We were asked to vacate our table of 3 after 70 minutes without any warning as the owner wanted to sell it to the next guests. Very rude, and we won’t return anytime soon.

The waiters who assisted us were really lovely however the manager was horrible. Although we did not finished with our main courses he came to tell us that we needed to leave as our 2 hours for the table were over!! Ridiculous and non sense. Very noise place no suitable for work dinners. Not very organised bringing the tapas and it took too long.
