Casual
Nestled near Carnaby Street and Oxford Street, we’ve been a favourite foodie haunt for years on Broadwick Street, Soho. We got our inspiration from the bustling bodegas synonymous with Spanish cities.

Bodegas are intimate, local joints where artisanal beers, sherries, and wines are served with impeccably sourced food. Our menu boasts a sensational selection of tapas, great bar snacks and traditional Spanish comfort food.

Best tapas in London. We were 3 and ordered 2 plates each, plus bread. It was a lot of food and so so good!

The food was not that good. We asked one of the waitress to bring one tapas back to the kitchen as the smell of the fish was too strong, and the taste was not good. But they finally charged us. Not very commercial.

Came here for a catch up dinner with my mum. We wanted to capture the spirit of our city break in Spain a couple of years back. The atmosphere was lovely, and the staff were really accommodating, making us feel really welcome. The food was delicious, and we only ordered 3 dishes each, but were incredibly full after.

I've brought family and friends here before, and will continue to do so, always a crowd pleaser.

Lovely menu and the food didn't disappoint - delicious and authentic. Charming service with a smile. A little cramped on space, but where isn't in central London! Quite pricey, but worth it. Would definitely recommend and will revisit.

Excellent food, of course premium pricing as you would expect - next time we'll ask to sit in the front area near around the bar. Back section in front of open kitchen has little atmosphere. Fried goats cheese with honey was stand out dish....

Very limited for vegetarians and found the veggie dishes that did exist were quite bland. Also thought the sangria was very weak and watered down. £60 bill at the end felt steep for some vegetables I’m afraid.

I was disappointed in the food - I didn’t think it was that flavourful (particularly when compared to what I ate on a recent trip to Barcelona). I appreciate that it’s in soho but I also thought it very expensive.

An ok meal, pretty standard fare, food appeared super fast after ordering and some dishes brought that were for other diners. Not outstanding and have had better quality at other brindisa places. Ok for a decent tapas meal but there are better options in Soho, like Barafina but always put off by the queues there. Thought Brindisa was a bit overpriced as well

I have been to Brindisa before several times. It has definitely gone down in terms of quality. We had a “fine” meal. Nothing awful but also nothing outstanding at all. Just average tapas really (whereas previously I would have said Brindisa did v good tapas but now definitely much more average). We also shared a bottle of house Cava and both had insanely bad headaches the following day which is strange as that was all we drank (eg we weren’t “hungover” but the Cava must just be a reasonably poor quality one or something??

Service was great and there was a nice buzz in the restaurant. Food was good although portions seemed a little small compared to other tapas restaurants. And the bill felt expensive for what we had. But our waiter was excellent so that made up for it.

The first thing we were told when we were seated was that the table was required back 1hr 45 minutes later - a message repeated to us throughout the meal. We had expected to leave about 7:15pm rather than 7:00pm. This was a surprise and disappointing because that extra 15 minutes at the end of the meal can make a difference between rounding things off nicely and being unceremoniously exited to the street. This information was included in the booking confirmation but not as prominently as the staff suggested. There needs to be six of you to secure a 2 hour table, which is a bit cynical.
This was my favourite Brindisa, but there has been a change of staff - less charming, less authentic and less able to successfully manage guest relations.
The food is ok - ham croquettes and huevos rotos the only really successful dishes - and the drinks list prices seem inflated.
I would recommend Barrafina, Camino or Iberica as good options ahead of Brindisa.
