LUNCH & THEATRE MENU: NIBBLE, SMALL PLATE AND GRILL DISH £19.95
Mon – Fri / 4:30 – 7pm Sat / 11:30am – 7pm

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!

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.

Good food. Brindisa is always reliable. Nice staff. Only downside was a noisy stag party and restaurant acoustics which magnified the noise.

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.
