The service was too poor to merit a recommendation. We had to call the waiter over when we wanted to order our mains, which was 45 mins after we arrived. He was clearly in a bad mood and barely spoke to us. They included 12.5% service on the bill which I feel they should be embarrassed about.

The food here is absolutely excellent. We shared 4 dishes between 2 of us and it was the ideal amount. Staff were a little slow at times but the atmosphere was great so it wasn’t an issue! Lively little place with great food, would 100% recommend.

Almost half an hour before someone took our drink order . Tapas were ok , paella was burned and when we said that to che waiter he said that was the way how paella should have been cooked .. service was really poor even though the floor was almost empty , they had like 3/4 tables .

Hi, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. I hope that overall you had a good experience and enjoyed the food. We cook our paellas as they do in Valencia and Alicante creating a crusty base of toasted rice called 'socarrat', this enhances the flavour of our rice dishes! I am sorry for the shortfall on service and your feedback will help us to improve that. Best regards, General Manager Brindisa Shoreditch

Great restaurant in a fab location. We love shorditch so great to be able to visit one of our favourite restaurants there.

Service was perfect and the food was exceptional as expected. Even though the tables were a little close together I didn’t feel invaded by the person sitting next to me.

I highly recommend this restaurant to tapas lovers

Enjoyable meal and nice lively restaurant however we found the seafood paella at £16 a little over priced for the amount of seafood that it contained and that it was very salty also which seemed to be taken on board there and then and reported to the kitchen.

The food was rely good but I was disappointed with the service. It started off really well with the waiter describing the menu however he disappeared thereafter. Nobody came to check on us and we had long waits to get the dessert menu and to order from it.

Beautiful tapas served in a lively environment by friendly staff who were very busy and therefore not intrusive at all although maybe sometimes it was a little difficult to get their attention. We went for a date night and we both loved the chicken thighs, the prawns in garlic and chilli, the tomato and courgette pisto and the stuffed pimento pepper with honey, along with a great recommendation of the caraffe of 2015 vino tinto (cant remember the name).. Loved the evening. Food was lovely. Atmosphere was buzzy. RECOMMEND.

I got the food 20 minutes after my friends our waiter didn’t really apologise, the food was quite expensive for the quality of it.
The hostess was really kind and was the only person who actually apologise for the delay.
I had really high expectations about this restaurant, but unfortunately I am not happy.

Food came quickly and was good but not incredible - seafood was all very fresh, but there was some flavour lacking. Lovely and friendly staff.
