BRINDISA EVENT: CILLAR DE SILOS CASTILIAN FEAST.
5 Ribera del Duero wines paired with 5 traditional Castilian dishes / 24th April 6 - 9pm / £65

We’re nestled on Rupert Street, where the buzz of Soho and Chinatown meets the bright lights of Piccadilly and Leicester Square. Our menu is all about cooking on fire, inspired by the asadors of Castilian-Leonese cooking.
 
We champion the stunning meats, fish and vegetables of Spain, particularly the roaming Ibérico pigs from which our cured and fresh pork comes from.
 
So, snuggle into one of our booths and enjoy a pre-theatre dinner, or take a seat at our 360-degree dining counter and watch the theatre of our open kitchen, or sit by the window and watch the world go by over lunch.

¡Te esperamos!

I took my Spanish friend here for her birthday and it was the best Spanish food I’ve tried in London so far!

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.

We were going to the theatre close by and needed something quick and easy. We had a few tapas to share and it was all lovely and tasted great. The service was friendly and very efficient and overall everything was just about right. This is not the best or most value for money tapas I have eaten but perfect for what we needed.

Not the best I've tried but still pretty good. The ribs were very stingy for the price absolutely no meat on them. All in all though quite a pleasant meal.

Having eaten at Brindisa in Borough Market we found this place decidingly uninspiring.

The staff were fine but the quality of the tapas were very poor. The Jamon was poorly presented, the chuletitas were hugely overpriced two poorly cooked pieces of lamb.

So we spent £140 pounds for a desperately poor experience.

My first visit to the Rupert St branch of Brindisa with friends and we enjoyed it very much! Nice friendly service, good wine and a great selection of tapas. Goats cheese in orange blossom honey was delicious, so was tomato bread and garlic prawns. Only slight complaint was the crispy squid, just too bitty & bit over cooked. Otherwise happy to go again.

I prefer the Broadwick location for its more intimate venue and more experienced staff. This one is a bit bright and at the moment not all staff are very well trained - though most were. the food is great - signature Brindisa, though a shame the tortilla was cold and so not just cooked. The star dishes were the salt cod croquettes - immaculate, and the monte enebro cheese.

Had an excellent meal with some dishes being truly outstanding. The Secreto Iberico was so good that I am thinking about it 2 days later, enjoyed it more than the Txuleton beef which itself was very good. I have had better Jambon de Bellota & fried squid which I found over fried. However the chicken livers, salad, prawns in garlic by far made up for any fall in standards. Dipping the bread into the garlic oil of the prawns was fantastic treat. Looking forward to my next visit. The service was on point and we were given a booth in the window which was comfortable. I suggest they increase the amount of comfortable/soft banquette seating to encourage friends & family to visit more frequently. Overall a delicious meal.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon (table for 4.30pm) prior to a night at the nearby Gielgud Theatre. We were the only ones in the restaurant when we arrived, but by the time we left (6.30pm-ish) the place was buzzing. The staff couldn't have been more charming and attentive. They all knew the menu inside out (including the 'secret' ingredients not mentioned on the menu). The range of dishes on offer was exemplary, with a number of very novel additions to the normal 'classics'. Stand outs were the Galician octopus and the chicken livers in Pedro Ximenez (PX) sherry. The wine selection was excellent too (we opted for a very, very drinkable Valencian red - El Le Bombe - I think - anyway, we had two bottles between four of us!) They even had Galician Estrella! Everything was beautifully presented - and we could see all the chefs in the centre of the restaurant working their magic; a particular plus for a family very interested in cooking, as well as eating! Service was very efficient, whilst not obtrusive and clearly all the staff very much enjoyed what they did ('goodbyes' from them all as we left). Would not hesitate in recommending the place to anyone and is clearly extremely convenient for Theatreland. But don't just take my word for it, try it out for yourself. We will certainly be returning (very soon, I hope!)

Really enjoyable evening, food was superb and the service was excellent. Particular mention to our waiter, Miguel. Exceptional customer skills and really helped us decipher the menu. Food was really creative and well presented. You must try the chicken, beautifully marinated and so tender. Thanks for a superb evening.

Traditionnaly diner with Brindisa on Rupertstreet every year around this weekend.
Yesterday the food was excellent. The service was ok, too crowded and less attention for us. Despite we were zitting at the bar and view to the kitchen/ brigade.

I went to this second branch of Brindisa in Soho, having been to the Broadwick St one twice before. Really good menu here, as in others Brindisa, with a delightful mix of Spanish classics and more daring dishes. From the ones we sampled, I can particularly recommend the artichoke dish (available with or without ham), the tortilla and the sliced beef dish recommended to us. This review would be incomplete without a special thank you to our attentive and friendly waiter Miguel, who really added to the experience. Highly recommended!

All of the Brindisa restaurants are great - but this one is a real find - nestled among chains catering for the theatre audiences - this is just fabulous. The tapas are wonderful, the wine excellent and the staff knowledgeable

Food was delicious but you need to love garlic as there was plenty of it - to my liking. Each dish was lovely, especially the prawns, pumpkin & the croquettes. The sauce that the prawns comes in is amazing. Make sure you dunk your bread in it to savour it all. The pumpkin was my favourite with amazing flavour combinations. The pork ribs were disappointing however. For £14.50 we expected more than 1 rib each and certainly with more meat on them. Service from Manuel was excellent passing on his bread dunk tip for the prawns, and accurately selecting Spanish wines to match our preferences from other regions that we know and love. We had 5 tapas, bread and drinks for £100 which is expensive no doubt, but you pay a premium for the central location also.
