    Not an ideal table at the top of the stairs down to the toilets. Food was good, service a little slow

    Tapas Brindisa South KensingtonResponded on 31 January 2022Hi Emma - really sorry to hear this - some people do specifically request this table but I completely appreciate how its not for everyone, and more should have been done to accommodate your requests if it was possible so if this wasn't the case I can only apologise. I will pass your comments onto the team so they are looked into. I hope we will see you again soon for a 5 star Brindisa experience :) Gracias

    We were shown to funny little table at back of restaurant almost under the stairs. The food was excellent and service was good but absolutely no atmosphere. Maybe you should try sitting there to see how it feels.

    Tapas Brindisa South KensingtonResponded on 19 January 2022Hola, I'm very sorry to hear you were disappointed with your table - we do find some people love this as it's slightly separate but it is of course dependent on the experience you want, however if you requested to be in the main buzz we should always try to accommodate this if possible, so I'm very sorry if this wasn't the case. I hope you'll give us a second chance to restore your faith in us and experience a different part of the restaurant. Gracias

    A bit under par. Bland squid rings; a tortilla oozing a grey liquid; a bland cheesecake. Only a charcuterie plate and pork tenderloin hit the mark.

    The menu has many tapas staples — but also quite a few star dishes that you won't find elsewhere. Courgette flowers stuffed with goats cheese was gorgeous, a beautiful balance of flavours without the acrid tang that some goats' cheeses have. The rice in squid ink was creamy, flavoursome and cooked to perfection. But the real stand out was the pork tenderloin. Our waiter recommended it pink, which I'd normally avoid with pork, but he was bang on. It was delicious and melted in the mouth. With 12.5% service, and a bottle of pink cava, it wasn't a cheap lunch, but it was a memorable one and we both felt it was reasonable value — particularly for the location, literally a stone's throw from South Ken' tube

    Tapas Brindisa South KensingtonResponded on 6 August 2021Thank you so much for such a lovely review, it really does mean a lot. I'm delighted you had such a good time with us and we look forward to welcoming you again soon - and we couldn't agree more the courgette flower is our favourite, a shame they're not in season longer but that's part of the joy! Hasta Pronto and gracias

    I’m spanish and always value tapas that are authentic and true to the original, so to speak. A couple of things we ordered were not up to standard: for example, why would you put olive oil and chives (chives??!) on a slice of Tortilla de Patatas??? To be fair, I reordered this without anything on it and it was reasonably tasty.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Tapas Brindisa South KensingtonResponded on 21 September 2020Hi 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
