Lovely little Spanish tapas. They go above and beyond. Covered Terrance with heating and blankets. Gorgeous cocktails too.
I couldn’t believe how the price at the end! I expected to pay a lot more. We will definitely be returning

We love this tapas bar! It’s the second week we have dinner there on a row. We’re Spanish and we can let you know the food is exactly like back home, it’s so nice feeling at home, especially now that it’s so difficult to actually fly home.

As said, the food is DELICIOUS, generous portions and not overpriced like other Spanish restaurants. The service is outstanding too.

Our new favourite in the area. We’ll visit again very soon :)

We had a birthday dinner here just after the re-opening of restaurant outdoor tables post lockdown and we were very pleased. The portions were very generous (defying a stereotype that tapas places outside of Spain can sometimes be quite overpriced, given the small portions that normally are associated with this type of restaurant) and the quality of the food was excellent. Despite being close to busy Wood Green, the area around the restaurant is quieter and faces a small park, so eating outside was fine. We will come again.

If you're looking for proper Spanish "tapas" this is the right place. Very generous portions and lovely staff. We'll be coming back again very often. And they even have "Puerto de Indias"! Very pleasant surprise!

The staff didn’t lie when they said they were big portions, but we went ahead anyways and our eyes were bigger than our bellies so we luckily took some extras home. The service was absolutely fantastic, the staff were chatty, attentive and very welcoming. They made a huge effort to cater to the weather as it was slightly chilly, and each table was given blankets and outdoor heaters. The service was extremely fast with lovely tapas (I don’t say that easily as I’m a tapas snob) and we were even offered free shots of limoncello between courses. To top it off, after having a great chat with the manager, we had a complementary cheesecake. I will 100% be coming back here again ASAP with some friends to help me finish the generous portions! Thank you Kenilly’s for our first lovely date night in a long time!

We heard about Kenilly's Tapas from Harringayonline where people recommended it warmly. We were not disappointed, it was a very pleasant experience: good food well presented, very attentive and friendly service, warm atmosphere, even with few people about. The decor contributes to the success of the place.

Amazing food and service. No vegan options which is not an issue for me but could be if you are vegan. Although the owner said that I wanted to come back with a vegan, to let him know in advance and he would make sure that there are vegan dishes available.

Amazing tapas-big portions and cooked just as they would be in Spain (I’m Spanish, believe me!)

Joe and Mus were so welcoming and really looked after us (they always do!) we will be back again very soon, it’s so great to have a restaurant nearby with authentic Spanish food!
