Absolutely delicious, with friendly, personable staff. We visited with a TimeOut black box card (giving us 50% off the food), so we ordered a wide variety of dishes and every one was exceptional, with fresh, flavourful meats, artful use of seasoning and unique and inspiring flavours in each. The only dish which wasn’t that great was the Crema Catalana dessert, which was meh. The venue is pricy without the TimeOut discount, but the food is so good that it’s worth it - we’ll definitely revisit for a special occasion.

After hearing such good reports I was very disappointed. The food apart from the tortilla was average at best. The service was very slow and then we were rushed at the end because they were closing.

Very good meal as always. Ordered the special on the night which was lamb chops, completely overpriced for just 3 lamb chops, so I certainly will not be ordering again. Otherwise, the regular menu items were enjoyable as always, quick bite with the family and would definitely recommend.

AVOID this brindisa go to a different one. We had so many problems, chorizo wasn’t cooked properly, the croquettes were awful, cold dishes, the food was rushed out within 20mins of sitting down and one of dishes was forgotten so we had to wait half hour for that. All round it wasn’t a great experience. The milk fed lamb dish absolute rip off £17 not worth the money the dish Was terrible cold elements, jus made with gravy granules. Avoid this restaurant best one London Bridge!!!

Maria was a great waitress but the portions of the dishes were terrible. What’s the point of having a sharing menu when the dishes are so tiny and expensive ?? For someone who has travelled around Spain and used to dining at other London tapas places this will be a disappointment.

Today quality ingredients, properly prepared. I particularly loved the pulpo (octopus) and the prawns with garlic. A fantastic ribeira del duero red wine hurt my pocket, but it was just fab.

Had a lovely dinner on a Saturday night :) I am a Tapas lover and have tried the purest version of it in Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla several times! This place is as authentic as any other you can find in Spain!! Everything very tasty and well presented. The vibe is cool and not too busy. The perfect spot for a casual date or a comfy meal as a pre-night out!Croquetas are a MUST!! Definitely coming back

The food was ok, nothing special really. The famous Spanish leeks came breaded, nothing like they are in Spain. Very small portion of calamari, whilst the next table was served a much larger one: when we pointed this out to the waitress, we were told the portion goes by weight, but it was obvious the two could not possibly have weighed the same. The service was fine, but better English and culinary knowledge would make it perfect.

I visited with my family. The service was great, we had a lovely bottle of wine with our meal and the menu had lots of variety. We loved the chorizo (which was quite spicy), the lamb was gorgeous and the ham croquettes were really good. The service was good, they accidently made a portion of garlic prawns which we didn't order and they gave them to us on the house-they were also amazing. It's definitely best to go with a small-ish group as the portions are quite small which isn't surprising with tapas. Would visit again.

Incredible food as always. Disappointed by the service on this occasion. Got the drinks and dessert orders wrong.
Told we only have 15 mins to order and eat our desserts. When the order was wrong (got a creme brûlée when we ordered a chocolate tart) tried to get the waiters attention who was talking to a colleague and we were signaled to wait! We then waited ages for the chocolate tart and had to chase as the rest of us had finished our dessert by the time the tart arrived. Not sure why it could take that long, it was not as if they had to cook or prepare anything, just put a slice on a plate. We didn't let it spoil our evening but it was very disappointing service with no apologies and charged £15 for service!!!! That was very cheeky given the appalling service we received.

I booked for a table of 5people for lunch. When I booked through OpenTable it had a special lunch daily menu available. My booking confirmation even had the special daily menu on it (in red writing, see photo attached). However when I asked on the day they said the daily menu isn’t available during Christmas period. When I explained that it was on my booking the Manager said I must have booked very long time ago and it isn’t available even though I told him I only booked a week ago. I then went on OpenTable to do double check and the special menu is still on and said available between Oct 2017 - April 2018(see photo). The Manager just kept saying it’s not available during Christmas period and then quickly walked away dismissing the whole matter. I have re-check on OpenTable now and they have obviously now taken it down knowing they made a mistake and kept the special on until I mentioned it. It’s just rather frustrating as I booked for a group of friends and told them about the special. If we have know we may choose to go elsewhere.
The food was very delicious none the less.

I booked here to get a lunchtime deal (number of dishes for a certain price) only to be told the deal stopped, even though it was still present on the app. So no deal. They forgot one dish but put it on our bill anyway, and two dishes came cold. However, one specific member of staff (FoH) did everything he could to quickly rectify the food issues which helped matters! Value for money isn’t great here, especially for lunch, but the ambience is pleasant and service was quick.
