Tendido Cero was our second project of Cambio De Tercio Restaurant Group, opened in February, 2001.

It is located in the heart of Chelsea-South Kensington, just opposite to Cambio De Tercio.

It’s all about Wonderful Tapas here, small dishes of traditional and modern recipes from our rich Spanish gastronomy, which are ideal to be shared by the whole table.

Busy and buzzy, with vibrant bullfighting colours and a party feel atmosphere that makes it a deal for any celebration.

Chosen by the New York Times- Herald Tribune as “One of the best five places to eat in London for a reasonable price”

We ate here last Friday evening on the recommendation of a friend. The food was very good, tasty with fresh ingredients. I will certainly return in the future. The service was excellent.

Too noisy and short space. Food is good but expensive for the quality and size. Better option to cross the street and go to Cambio de Tercio. The same management, but much better

We had a really lovely evening, the food was good, authentic and innovative, the wine choice wide and well priced, but I did find it very tiresome that the staff constantly interrupted our conversation to ask for things and speed us up. They did it with a smile, but I my books that is not enough. If we had been in Spain, the waiters would have kindly waited for us to finish your sentences before stepping in.

Superb meal. The lamb shoulder was delicious, as was the fresh grilled asparagus. Charming service. Fantastic white Rioja (though not cheap). All round great!

What a find!
Loved everything about it and my date was over the moon. The food, wine, service and atmosphere were beyond my expectations.

Highly recommended and I think I found my new regular.

Well done!

I was meeting up with friends in Kensington and having had a wonderful meal over the road previously I thought we would try the tapas bar. We tried sherry and ordered olives and boquerones. The olives were particularly good. All the remaining tapas were excellent and service was efficient and friendly.

Overpriced and the quality of the food was low! Service was ok. We were very surprised to be charged for bread twice. It is true we asked for more, but such a shame to charge the client twice!

Fabulous as always, Tendido Cero! The service is impeccable, the food delicious; the wine list is extensive and on the pricey side (you can easily pay for one bottle what you'd pay for a meal - or much more), but that is reflected in the quality of the wines on offer. We had a great evening!

Everything was absolutely outstanding. We've loved and eaten in this restaurant for years, but sadly moved out of the area about 10 years ago. It was great to go back and see that not only was it still great, but even better! We love you Tendido Cero!
