We opened Casa Brindisa in 2008 as our family style restaurant on Exhibition Road in South Kensington. True to its name, it’s inspired by Spanish home cooking – serving a seasonal selection of tapas, cured plates and farmhouse cheeses.

We are also known for our family-style sharing dishes such as our ‘txuleton’ Basque steak. From family lunches before the museums to late night suppers with friends, our home is your home.

I would recommend this place only because the food was five stars but I have to admit was disappointed with the table because it was close to the stairs going downstairs to the toilets. The sangria wine tasted great I wish they had asked us first if we wanted ice because it was filled with so much ice that felt like we were drinking more water than actual sangria but the food was amazing and will definitely come back for the food.

Excellent service and good suggestions of portion sizes and tapas combinations

Perfect location to eat before exploring the museums and high street

Reasonable cost of food compared with other restaurants in the South Kensington area

I hadn’t been there in a long while and I thought I would go back because it was good a few years ago but they have gone downhill. Portions are ridiculously small, I got the calamari tapas and ok I appreciate it is a tapas but that was one single micro squid cut in pieces and served with a spoonful of black mayo. Really disappointing. Both my husband and I were surprised they had the nerve to serve that dish. They have recently changed the menu to include croquetas with chicken and ham which sounds more English than Spanish to me. Also there’s no octopus which is probably the most typical Spanish dish. Overall we felt the place is totally overpriced and the menu is disappointing.

Nice food - as always with tapas there are some dishes better than others. Prawns were great. Potatoes bravas not so good. Excellent wine. Service friendly and efficient but not hurried. Will go back, maybe not on a Friday next time.

The staff were very accommodating as my son is on clutches and they gave us a lovely table in the corner for four people, which was very roomy. The food was good but tend to be too salty. We were a bit stretch for time and the food arrived quickly. We had a lovely time.

Having been to Brindisa in Shoreditch the South Kensington restaurant was disappointing. The menu was limited, and the ambience felt like a fast food outlet rather than expensive dining experience.

We were welcomed to this buzzy tapas restaurant and our table was ready on-time which was helpful as we had an early theatre booking.
Food was delicious and served promptly.
Although Brindisa is recognised as excellent tapas, the pricing is more on a restaurant level - £100 for 2 people.

Early evening meal after taking two kids to see the dinosaurs. They loved it giving 11 out of 10 rating. Tapas good idea as they could pick what they wanted. Nothing left on plates - a first! Lemonade wonderful. Only downside a bit pricey.

Convenient for the South Ken Tube and the museums of South Kensington this is an enjoyable but quite expensive place to eat. The food is tasty and fresh and a glass of Manzanilla followed by a cold beer are perfect complements. A fun, child friendly restaurant and a lively atmosphere. what more could you want?

I know Brindisa as a supplier as I work in restaurants, but have never eaten at any of their restaurants before. It was such a delight! The food was actually delicious. Really spot on. The service was lovely too. Just attentive enough that you felt well looked after, but not overwhelming. Just a lovely lunch. I’ll be back for sure!

A slightly disappointing evening: the tapas was ok, but not a patch on the real thing, eaten in the sun in Madrid. That said, the tortilla and aioli were absolutely amazing, definitely a highlight. The cava sangria was quite pricey at £26 per small jug and it was hard to taste the cava in it, it was so sweet. It was the desserts that really let the side down though. Churros that were very tough and chewy and a millefeuille that was actually a small piece of filo, or a wanton wrapper, folded in half and baked. Definitely not a millefeuille by any means. I doubt we’ll be back I’m afraid.
