Brindisa is one of my favorite restaurants in London! The gambas and huevos rotos are a must try!! My go to location is the one in Soho however I live in Battersea so I had to try their new location in Battersea Power Station. This location is bigger but you get the same great service with amazing food!

We had our very small (9 people) Wedding lunch at Brindisa Battersea and couldn't be happier. We had already been there a couple of times and it's always been brilliant.
The manager Milton is a gentleman and made everything go smoothly and all of the waiters were great as well. The wine recommendations for example, for both white and red, were spot on! Food wise, we were in heaven. Everyone was extremely full and satisfied in the end.
I couldn't be more thankful to Milton and the Brindisa team for delivering such an impromptu, delicious and memorable lunch in such a special day. Needless to say, Brindisa comes highly recommended.

Smart restaurant on the ground floor of the apartment building facing the Thames. There are a few restaurants with outdoor patios all in a row here (incl. Fiume, Wright Bros) The entire side of the restaurant facing the water opens up and there are outdoor tables on the patio under umbrellas. We sat at one of the lovely 'high tables' with bar stools that are located at the front of the restaurant (each seats 2-3 for dinner and 2-4 for drinks) - if the glass sliding doors were closed these tables would be along the glass with a water view, and if the sliding doors are open then these tables are technically inside the restaurant but right on the border with the outdoor patio. The food was absolutely delicious and very creative (to be truthful this took us a bit by surprise). We also had a carafe of rose wine from Spain which was very good. I felt its a little on the pricey side as our bill came to about £90 for 2 of us, but we did have the two of the more expensive items on the menu, the lamb chops (£15 for 4 medium size) and the calamari (also £15). They were delicious though!

The ambience, the service and the restaurant itself was very good
The food was too oily, too rich and nearly all had been fried. The patat bravas was so chorizo flavoured that we lost the taste of potato. Even though it was tapas the portions were far too small for the price The wine was well overpriced for the quality. £22 for the special ham was a rip off...... sorry
I have eaten more authentic spanish food in Battersea
Sadly I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone

Authentic Spanish tapas and very good wine by the glass menu. Waiters had good advice and knowledge. BUT the service was hectic and took a while to get a waiter/waitress’s attention (hire a few more!). Also we had specifically requested a table outside but it hadn’t been made clear on booking that this area is not reservable. So disappointingly we initially had to sit inside, then thankfully moved outside after 30 minutes or so. It’s great to sit outside by the river. Overall a tasty meal and delicious wine; they just need a few more staff!

The high top tables at the front have a great view out over the river and there’s a seating area outside for a leisurely lunch on a hot summer day. We thoroughly enjoyed all our tapas dishes. The iberico ham is always good, and we particularly enjoyed the prawns which were beautifully garlicky, and the octopus which melted in the mouth.

Sadly, just like other branches of this mini chain, the food is expensive given the size of the tapa portion and the booze - apart from beer - is way overpriced. £10 for a GnT where you couldn’t taste the G is taking the P.

The overall was OK, but we had some tapas not arriving to our table, having to ask twice for them. We ordered bread, and it came toasted. The second time we ordered bread, it came cold and not toasted.

When ordering the wine we asked for a suggestion to our waitress but we could feel that she didn’t know the wine list and her suggestions were quite confusing.

We had high expectations, specially being spanish and knowing our cuisine. Food quality was OK but unfortunately that day kitchen had some issues and we did not enjoy it that much.

I am rather surprised about some reviews because we had exemplary service all evening, the staff couldn't have been more welcoming or attentive. The food was delicious...we had 6 tapas for 2 people, including the beef with chocolate and manchego which was the best. We had a table indoors overlooking the river and perfect for people watching. The outdoor tables had canopies and heating. There is a private room with a large table at the back inside.

Service was friendly- the waitress was helpful with food and wine suggestions.

Unfortunately it was also inefficient and haphazard. The croquettes arrived undercooked and cold in the middle so they had to be sent back. Then we were brought a cod mousse which we hadn’t ordered so that went back too.
The piece of sea bream was literally a slither and priced at £14 which was ridiculous for what we got.

The lamb and chorizo were good but all in all it was very poor value and a bit all over the place

Really lively staff. We were sitting outside then the rain started! We were sorted in minutes with a spot at the bar and the staff were clearly very organised as the evening continued with all the right orders etc

The food was really good. Croquetas were divine, really excellent; garlic prawns were spot on authentic with really soft caremelised garlic; portion sizes were ok for most dishes and price; alioli was good but the black alioli over salty.

Had a great night there though. The location is fantastic and some of the staff so knowledgeable about Spanish food and all staff really lovely.

We visisted Tapas Brindisa on a Saturday evening and had a lovely welcome from their front of house. We were celebrating a birthday and they provided us with a glass of bubbles each for the occassion (nice touch). The food was tasty - some dishes exceeding others and varying drastically in portion size - obviously cost dependent. The gambas were delicious, as was the beef with dark chocolate and manchego. However a couple of dishes weren't quite up to standard. The croquettes were a little mushy inside (shame) and for the price the sea bream it was tiny. The ambience however was lovely and the restaurnat is in a wonderful setting - right on the river. We recommend going to try lots of different dishes!

Arrived at 7:30pm for Saturday dinner to a relatively quiet restaurant. Within 30 mins the place was pretty much packed out.

The welcome from the hostess and service thereafter was great.

My partner and I ordered 4 tapas' to share (plus some olives). The quality of food was excellent, though my girlfriend found the chorizo a little bit chewy (though I loved it - so this may just be a matter of personal taste).

The calamares (squid) & gambas (prawns) were excellent and the heuvos rostos (egg & potatoes) were a great accompaniment with the chorizo.

Would also highly recommend the Estrella Galicia 1906 for any beer drinkers.

Great place to go for a date or a night out with friends.
