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”

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.

The food was not very Spanish taking in consideration that the owner and I would say all the waitresses were Spanish. The octopus was super greasy and didn’t understand the salmon crispy croquettes... is it Spanish??? Overprice for sure compering the portion of food. Quiet disappointed about this place.

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.
