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”

Came to the restaurant with a group of friends. The food is outstanding, cannot be faulted. The only thing with the service is that one of the menu that we ordered - the razor clams was forgotten, and we had to remind the waiter and a bottle of wine that we wanted was not available. We were recommended an alternative which was ok.

Nonetheless we had an excellent meal in a vibrant setting. Will come back again.

Innovative and traditional both. Friendly staff who don’t mind it if you want to practise your Spanish with them while you’re ordering food. Lovely place. The lamb, the 8hr tomatoes, the Manchego cheesecake are my faves. Huuuuuge red wine list and a good white wine one too.

Cambio de Tercio was the perfect place for my husband and I to celebrate our 20th Anniversary during our 11 day trip to London. In fact we loved it so much, we ate there twice. The food was delicious. I especially recommend the Iberian ham and the croquettes. The atmosphere was romantic and it was so enjoyable to sit at a table that opened directly onto the lively South Kensington street. The staff was simply incredible. The server recommended a great bottle of wine and remembered exactly what I liked when we came back the last night of our trip. The man who greeted us sat us at a beautiful table both nights and gave us complimentary glasses of champagne at the end of our meal. Cambio de Tercio will be the first restaurant I book when we return to London!

Excellent food. Friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant seems to have about 3 or 4 places across the Brompton road, so lots of choice.

Been to all of them, and all very good

Good food,I have been there before,however overrated and the hot was unbearable-the air conditioning wasn’t working.
We left the restaurant in a rush without having any dessert because of this...

The ambience is really classy and special. The paintings have contributed to a more light-hearted and relaxed atmosphere with a humourous feeling . Food is superb in taste and wonderful in presentation. The attitude of the waiters are very friendly and helpful. Very good overall impression. Highly recommended restaurant.

Lovely food and ambience. Maybe there could be a greater choice of wines by the glass and some slightly more exciting flavours. Great service and a lovely evening overall.

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!
