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

Not great for children. No child friendly menu and nothing plain for children to have on the main menu. Very expensive and we still felt hungry afterwards.

Prompt service, delicious and well seasoned. Tasted very close to the tapas I had in Barcelona a few days before. Good for pre concert at royal albert hall. May need to reserve, was full when I arrived.

We have been to this restaurant 4 times now and it's fabulous. The manager runs a very tight ship and the waiting staff are very good. There when you want them and not hanging around when you don't need them . My teenage kids love it too.

Probably the best tapas I’ve tried in England.
Food is authentic, of excellent quality and very flavoursome. We had a combination of hams and cheeses to start and then a combo of hot and cold tapas for the main - plus puddings.
Wine list to match the dishes is well thought out (the Cillar de Silos is delicious).
Very attentive staff who are ready to assist if you need direction with ordering.
Looking around the restaurant all the guests seemed to be having fun in a what came across as a happy and buzzy atmosphere!
Would highly recommend eating here!

I have visited this restaurant numerous times and have never had a bad experience before this one. The service was terrible and one server in particular was extremely rude when taking payment for our meal. I definitely won't be returning after that experience.

Had a fantastic Tapas with the family pre Jools Holland at The Royal Albert Hall. The staff are friendly and welcoming and very attentive at the table - they went the extra mile to make sure you were happy with your choices etc. The food was great we ordered just the right amount for four and not one element failed to disappoint. This place is always busy so if you know you're heading to South Kensington and want a good meal and you like tapas book ahead and give it a try!

Booked a table for 2 before visiting the V&A. Very busy, so glad we booked in advance. Lovely food and drink, not so many veggie options but what we did have was great. Dessert was the highlight! Cheesecake 10/10.

Overall a good tapas experience ... you only have 90 mins allocated, so service is fast. This is a busy and quite noisy but friendly restaurant. I had no problem with the turn around time, however it can be rather a delicate balance when waiting staff are constantly walking up and down the diners looking for empty dishes to take away. Sometimes it felt rather like someone waiting to pounce and I was distracted from conversation by this. It is clear though that if you also want a dessert, service must be within the hour for your first course, to meet the dining deadline. Great food, but not a particularly relaxing dining experience.

All the food was heavily over-garnished with salt. Massive chunks of rock salt on top of all of the food. Patatas bravas arrived cold to the touch. Lamb was ordered medium rare but arrived still breathing. Offered new items but at this point lost our appetite. Great wines though. A shame as girlfriend has eaten at the one in London Bridge and said it was miles better.

Excellent café style tapas restaurant suitable for casual dining. Service was fast and friendly with the food arriving within minutes of ordering. The small menu is surprisingly varied presenting no challenge to a non red meat eater. Wine selection modestly priced (for London). Only issue for us was how close the tables were. Makes it cosy but a bit noisy.

This is our 3rd visit in the last few months and the standard has been consistently good each time. We both really enjoy tapas and the choice on the menu is very varied (we think there were some different options on offer this time.
Everything is very well presented and the time between ordering and eating is minimal - always good if you are hungry. Service is impeccable - no sooner is a plate empty than it is taken away but you are never rushed and can enjoy a nice dining experience in a pleasant environment.
