Second time here, it was nice setting and nice meal with my family including 4 young children. The food was not as tasty as last but that may be because we choose lots of different dishes as last time there was just two of us. Unfortunately a lot of the food is frozen for instance the churros and squid, I know this as I see the chef take the bags out from the room next door (he had to unlock the door behind me to get the frozen bags and to leave the door and lock again and go back into the restaurant)

I knew from last time the squid wasn’t fresh as we sent it back and know I know my taste buds didn’t fail me.

They are very fair with price so can’t complain we still ate and had a lovely time and enjoyed it.

I will like to return again but not as soon as I would have if the food was more tastier and authentic tasting.

We absolutely love this place and come all the time, food is fantastic (particularly the octopus and the garlic prawns), the service is phenomenal, very welcoming, always know the right amount of chat vs leaving you to eat, the outside seating is heated and comfortable and the price is right. Living locally we bring all our relatives here when they come to visit London. An absolutely gem! Thank you so much for always being such a welcoming fabulous place for us to have an evening out.

Lovely and charming Tapas restaurant and cafe. the food was spectacular, good value for money and well presented (see photos for just a small selection of their dishes). 5 adults dined for under £100 including drinks and left very happy. Service is friendly, accommodating and very helpful and speed of the orders was brilliant even when the tables were full. Great addition to the area and well worth a visit. Will be going back for certain.

First time at Kenilly's last night. A very good experience and we will definitely come back.
Sitting outside in the covered terrace on a nice hot summer evening was very pleasant.
Service was flawless and provided with a smile.
Tapas were excellent and portions huge! Make sure you do not order more than you think you might be able to eat! Kenilly's tapas are worth a visit!

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.
