Great food and excellent service. The truffle tortilla is excellent
Thank you that's great to hear!
Food was OK, but nothing impressed. The octopus, which is our benchmark, was just on the rubbery side. It’s a good, honest restaurant and service was friendly.
Hola, thank you for your review - I'm glad you enjoyed the experience and service but am disappointed to hear you were let down by the food. I will pas your comments onto the chefs and management as we are always looking to improve. Gracias, Imogen
Couldn’t fault it
Really good selection of food, lovely drinks and great atmosphere
Staff where very friendly and great at recommending options
Would definitely come back
Gracias Daisy that's lovely to hear. Hope to see you again soon.
Our waiter was excellent and recommended the gorgeous dark chocolate sorbet dessert.
Really good tapas - loved the huevos rotos and pimientos de padron
Thank you for your lovely review. We hope to see you again soon!
My food was late served to me once we had finished all our other dishes and a mouse ran through the restaurant! I tried to get several waiters attention regarding my missing food and I was ignored in several occasions. After finally chasing up my food it still took a further 10 minutes.
Great food ... great covid procedures ... lovely food and good service ... Thankyou
Thanks Judi that's great to hear on all fronts! We hope to see you again soon.
I’ve been there a lot of times and the food is really good, the service was good too. We had a Spanish waitress and she was excellent!!
We used to come here quite a lot before lockdown and so it was nice to be here again. Tapas with attitude, lovely restaurant in the heart of London, goodly selection on the menu and all of it delicious. Makes for relaxed dining, not too noisy, in the Summer you can dine outside and some hardy souls do so even now it's Autumn. Recommended.
Hola, thank you so much for your lovely comments that's absolutely lovely to hear. Thank you so much. we hope to see you again soon! Gracias, Imogen
Will definitely be going back again. From the service to the food, it was AMAZING. With the new regulation in place, closing at 2200 they were able to get us sat earlier to have more time to enjoy the food. Recommend booking, it was very busy. Pimientos de Padrón are one of my favorites and this is the first place for once I found a spicy one. I was spending a couple of days in London with my partner and this was our favourite meal out of all five places we ate. Gracias por todo.
Hola Robert, thank you so much for such a lovely review and feedback. I'm delighted you enjoyed your time with us - and that you found a spicy padron, we're getting a few now that we're coming to Autumn! Hope to see you again soon when you're next in London. Gracias, Imogen
We were able to sit outside and enjoy the food and wine with friends
A very enjoyable place to eat in a pedestrianised street on a warm September evening. Tables were well spaced out, service and food good. Great the restaurant was still giving £10 off per person on a Wednesday. Would definitely go back.
Thank you Rose that's lovely to hear, hope to see you again soon!
Good location, the food is terrible. I had Lamb rump which it wasn't rump at all, just 5 slice of lamb with baked beans, very salted with no flavours at all.
Hi Hanna, I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed with your experience. As we are a tapas restaurant our portions aren't full main courses, and our lamb rump is always sliced on top of the Arrocina beans and is usually a favourite, however clearly it let you down on this occasion for which I can only apologise. I will pass your feedback on to the team and I hope that you will give us another chance to restore your faith in Brindisa, please feel free to get in touch directly. Kind Regards, Imogen
Always great service. The beautiful weather certainly helped
Thank you that's lovely to hear, we hope to see you again soon
Great food and great atmosphere. Going back for sure
Love this restaurant. Lovely birthday lunch with my daughters.
Thank you Nina! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Very good tapas restaurant, good quality food and excellent service.
Hola Tom, thank you for lovely review, that's absolutely great to hear. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Kind Regards, Imogen
Brindisi has been a favourite for me for 25 years. But now it's become a tourist trap, at least in South Ken. We ate outside which was fine but the food was terrible. Overcooked, mushy, no appeal. Had to ask for condiments several times. Wine SO crazily overpriced. The MUST be joking. A white wine was £97.00. We thought it might be the YEAR and when we asked the waiter he said, no that's the price for the bottle. It's our best white. We burst out laughing. I mean really. We decided on a white at £35.00 which was not good at all, ordinary, boring, thin, pale, no taste. That's it. We won't go again.
Super friendly staff and amazing Spanish food! The tapas are pricey for how small they are, but as you would expect in London.
Thank you for your lovely comments, I'm very pleased you enjoyed your time with us. We do find our prices are in line with the quality of our produce and the market but I'm sorry you felt it didn't offer value for money - I hope you will visit us again soon, however, and feel differently. Have a lovely weekend. Gracias
Had a great meal, but the highlight of the evening for me was the seasonal cava! Could you please have it on the menu permanently?
Hola! Thank you so much for your lovely comments - I am delighted you have a good time. If you're referring to the cava sangria we do always have it we just update the contents with the seasons! Thank you so much again we hope to see you again soon.
Booking was easy and we were welcomed and seated quickly. Service was prompt but not pushy and the menu was full of wonderful items that made choosing difficult. Wine, beer (alcohol free) and all food terrific.
Hola, Thank you so much for such kind comments about the service and food and drink, I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed your experience with us. We hope to see you again soon. Thank you so much
Tapas were delicious. We sat indoors as it was raining but felt quite safe since tables were well spaced. Service was efficient and the food arrived quickly. Very satisfied overall.
Thank you for your lovely comments and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your experience with us and felt safe as this is of course of the utmost importance at the minute. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Gracias. Imogen
We had a table outside. We have been there a few times and we know the food is always good quality. Lovely service from very friend and professional staff. Highly recommended!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments, great to hear you enjoyed yourself again and we look forward to seeing you soon! Gracias. Imogen
We had a lovely meal here before going to the Natural history museum. Great choice of food even for our young children, very friendly waiter who was great with the kids. We will definitely be returning!
Hola Charlotte, thank you so much for your review and kind words. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your time with us and we hope to see you again soon. Gracias, Imogen.
Great food, a beautiful day and the service was second to none. She was such a lovely waitress! Very attentive and nothing was a problem for her. Wish I got her name to thank her!
Hi Ellie, Thank you so much for taking the time to review and send us your feedback we're really grateful and I'm delighted that you had a good time with us! I believe Donata our new assistant manager was who it must have been and she will be delighted to hear this as she only started with us last weeks so I will most definitely pass on your feedback! Hopefully we will see you again soon. Thank you again, Imogen
Great food and Great service!
Really good and traditional Spanish food and not as pricey as other restaurants.
Gracias Ari, lovely to hear
Absolutely wonderful meal at Brindisa South Kensington, sitting outside the restaurant. Not only is the food delicious and perfect for a summer meal out, but they have done a great job of making the restaurant Covid secure. Everything was very clean and the staff were fantastic!
Hi Gen, Thank you so much for such lovely comments I'm so pleased you enjoyed your experience with us and that you felt safe and secure with us. We hope to see you again soon. Gracias! Imogen
Lovely to go back to Brindisa after lockdown. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Smaller menu and wine list than before which was fine but please bring back the spinach with sultanas and pine nuts!!
Hi there, Thank you so much for taking the time to review and welcome back! We're so glad you enjoyed your experience and thank you for understanding our need for a smaller menu at the minute - we have tried to keep on the favourites but your comment is noted on the spinach and will be passed on as we always want to do what our customers want of course where possible! We hope to see you again soon :)
Food was amazing. Service was fantastic.
Just please stop the staff member that whistles louder than the music!
Thank you so much for your lovely review we really appreciate it especially at the minute! Your comments have been passed onto the team so thank you for that too as feedback very helpful. Hope to see you soon.
Booked this restaurant the day my husband saw the Manager painting the door getting ready to reopen. When we arrived 5min before the booking time, there’s a young couple in front of us. They had no booking, the reception lady showed them to a nice table. When I told her Our booking, she showed us to the table on the way to the toilet whilst there are still 2 tables by the window and another one in the middle of the restaurant available. I asked her if we can sit in the restaurant not on the staircase! She disappeared to get the approval from the Manager and eventually allowed us to sit on the table in the restaurant. I thought this was appalling as I booked the minute the restaurant decided to reopen. Instead they let the walk-in have a nice table. This of course upset us before we even order, which was a shame as otherwise we like the restaurant.
Hi there, Thank you for your visit and taking the time to review, your feedback is very helpful. I'm so sorry for the experience you had. As I'm sure you can understand we are still getting up to speed after a while off and have many team members from other sites. We should have done better on this occasion, and I can only apologise for your experience - we are taking the necessary steps to improve and refine all the time. We hope to see you soon for a truly enjoyable Brindisa experience. Imogen
Food and service as good as ever. Covid precautions inevitably reduced the buzz but were necessary and not intrusive.
Hi Stella, Thank you for your lovely feedback and comments on our precautions - as I'm sure you can imagine we've been trying our best to achieve the balance between safety and hospitality which is challenging! I'm pleased that you felt it wasn't intrusive though that's great to hear. Hope to see you again soon. Imogen
Food -some hot dishes were served cold , but the staff refused to accept this and argued with the customers. The venue was very noisy.
Very disappointing experience.
Dear Carol, Thank you for sharing your experience, I was saddened to learn that you didn't fully enjoy it and I am sorry if we fail to deliver a good service and our food was not great. Your feedback is really important to us and please be assured that it has been shared with both our Front of House and Kitchen teams. Best regards, General Manager Casa Brindisa
