You’ll find us where the buzz of Soho and Chinatown meets the bright lights of Piccadilly and Leicester Square. Our tapas menu is all about cooking on fire, inspired by the Asadors of Northen Spain.

At the heart of our restaurant is a 360-degree counter bar and kitchen so you can admire the theatre of service. It’s the perfect spot for pre or post theatre or for a relaxed evening with friends. For us, Rupert Street is where we will love to feast – with a selection of sharing dishes from big steaks to whole baked fish.

Good variety of tapas, well cooked and presented. Nice place to sit in: relaxed and not noisy - especially after pre-theatre rush. Service very friendly if a bit over-attentive - eg several efforts to clear plates before we were quite ready. But overall - good food and a nice vibe.

Arrived at 9pm after pre booking a table, then before we've even sat down and took off our jackets, a waitress comes over and tells us that at 9:30pm, a larger party will be arriving where we will then be told to move and sit at the bar. This is despite the fact that we have booked a TABLE in advance and we were being told that we only had half an hour to order and eat our food or risk being moved halfway through a meal to the BAR. Terrible service. We complained to and fro for a good 5 minutes before the waitress consulted a senior member of staff and then came back to inform us we could move to another table. Too right! We looked at the menu and it was different to the one on the website which was a disappointment as we had already chose our meals from that menu. Safe to say, nothing on the new menu jumped out at us and the service already left a bitter taste in our mouths so we walked out to no protest from the staff. I doubt they even noticed we were gone as apparently booking tables in advance means nothing to this place. Ended up eating in Chinatown and had a much better time. I would not recommend this place. Avoid.

Dined here a few times now.
Previous experiences were very good but this time our tables waiter was incredibly lapse with his attention and service.
At one point I thought he must have finished his shift as he disappeared for a good 15mins and we had no one looking after our table.

Food great as always though.

An enjoyable and solid representation of authentic tapas in Central London. The quality of the steak was outstanding (if not a tad overcooked) and there's a good selection of Spanish wines to complement the tapas. Not the best value tapas in London but generally everything our group tucked into was met with 'yum'.

Last minute reservation so we were seated in the back by the kitchen, but this was the only thing to mark our experience down.

We were looked after brilliantly and the food was excellent.

Good food good drinks. Some unique tapas dishes - some worked, some didn't but overall good and enjoyable. Great friendly and quick service despite the party coming in drips and drabs - may be because it wasn't so busy even it was a Friday evening dinining.

Third time to the Rupert Street branch and I think it will be the last.

The food, while certain dishes are exquisite, does not match the quality or consistency as Brindisa in Soho.

More important though is that the service is really quite poor. There were a couple of waiting staff who were trying their best but they were stretched too thinly, and the restaurant manager was only there in body, pleasant enough but not at all tuned in to what was going on in the restaurant which was not very busy.

A shame but just not good enough. I’d sooner walk the extra couple of minutes to Soho.

Overall pleasant experience, but very uneven menu - some items (tortilla, gambas, almond tart) were exceptionally good and some (croquettas) were average at best. Service was very good

Lovely staff, good service with a smile. We were encouraged to sample some wine before ordering. Food was very good, with some original dishes (pork-corn) as well as traditional favourites. Choice possibly a bit more limited than other tapas restaurants.

Quite big for a tapas Resturant but the layout and interiors really took me back to Barcelona! Great selection of tapas all freshly made in front of you, the chefs were buzzing and the service was so warm and friendly. This place is great for couples and groups! Can't wait to go back :)

Had a lovely meal with friends, table at the back, quiet enough to talk comfortably but still a nice hum / ambiance from the kitchen and guests. Everyone happy with the food. It worked out £60pp for those having wine and cocktails, including dessert. We weren't rushed from the table and enjoyed a relaxed meal ordering rounds of good and sharing over 3.5 hrs, so I'd recommend for a group meal.

Our first time at Rupert Street though we’re regulars at the Soho branch. It’s a bigger restaurant with seats at the bar as well as regular tables. The food was good, a slightly different menu I think, and maybe not quite as well executed, though still good. Service was friendly but a bit erratic - I think every server in the place came to our table at one point! It was a bit quiet at lunchtime, very pleasant but there’s probably more atmosphere in the evenings. We’ll be going back soon to compare.
