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.

Brunch to dinner | Located next to London’s museums & Royal Albert Hall | Perfect for family dining | All Spanish wine list | Cocktails & perfect serves | Family-friendly | Outdoor terrace | Open kitchen

Very noisy and lively place especially as we were in a weird table at the top of the stairs, but food was great and the service was amazing - friendly and quick - considering how busy they were.

Really nice food and in a very cool modern settling. Wine list seemed overpriced. Aside from that the service is very good and food fantastic.

After making the booking early plus a somewhat empty restaurant, we had to stand around for about 15 min. Food was good but, ambiance is a bit cafe like vs restaurant

If you fancy a quick bite to eat and don’t mind a “full” price then the experience is OK.

I wouldn’t go for a special occasion. And have had much better Tapas

Have been many times. Seemed more noisy than usual. Next time we will ask to be seated up at the front rather than down by the kitchen.

Casa Brindisa never disappoints, the food wine and service are always good. On this occasion we started with a Gin Mare and tonic which was perfectly mixed and set us up for a great evening.

Very disappointed. Extremely small portions of everything at a (relatively) high price. The 'fritura' was pathetic, the squid barely recognisable. The shrimps al ajillo were embarrasing in number. On the upside, the charcuterie was of good quality and the service was polite and efficient. This used to be a go-to place for authentic tapas, but is no longer.

Good quality innovative tapas but portions very small ( even for tapas) and therefore somewhat overpriced. And when you order a dish that says ‘anchovies’ you expect to get more than one!

Casa Brindisa has some of the best Tapas in London. I both like the fact that they change the menu regularly but get disappointed when favourites disappear. Although the food is good and staff very pleasant, I do think it’s a bit expensive. Six tapas, one bottle of water, and one beer = £61 plus, inc service and VAT.

Food was not very special. The jamon was dry and sliced too thick. None of our dishes shone and yet all were priced at a premium rate. I still regret this disappointing expense.

As ever, really enjoyed this. Like the variety of the menu and the chance to find new flavours. Also lovely to see Sherry on the drinks menu and served pleasantly chilled. They seem to know what they are doing.

This place was great after a visit to the natural history museum. Just a 5 minute walk from the museum. We arrived a little early but were shown to our table straight away. We had a mixture of the tapas dishes, personally I enjoyed the sizzling garlic prawns, the meat platter, figs and the tortilla! We couldn’t decide on which dishes to have so had an abundance of plates arriving at the table! Possibly too many but it all got eaten. The one thing I would highly recommend to drink was the Cava sangria, perfect just perfect!
The waitress we had was attentive, we never ran out of water for the table and she never rushed us to take orders or clear the table.
I would definitely go back again!

Lovely tapas meal but a little pricey and could have had more cheaper vegetable/salad options. Really good service and a great place for dinner before the proms.

It was some time since I had last eaten here. It is always good, but this time particularly so. Although we chose relatively modestly, both price-wise and number of dishes, the bill came to over £45 per head. As in many places in London, it was the price of the drinks that pushed up the cost. That aside, excellent food, friendly and efficient service, and a typically buzzy atmosphere. Much recommended. Do book in advance.
