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”

This is not the first time to this restaurant and will definitely not be the last. From the time you arrive to the time you leave you have the best experience. The service is friendly and first class and the food provides the most amazing explosion of flavours and textures. There is also a great selection of wines to suit all budgets.

We were told we had to leave 90 minutes after arriving (apparently you only get 90 minutes on the table if you book through Opentable).

We were not able to finish the food and wine that we had ordered, but were charged anyway. It ruined the evening for us.

I would not go again.

I used to come here once a week when I lived locally and it was somewhere I was really keen to support coming out of lockdown but it disappointed on all fronts. The food wasn’t as good as I remembered however the handling of the social distancing guidelines from the staff was shockingly bad. Most diners arrived without wearing a mask and the staff said nothing, people arrived early and stood right next to other tables, large groups that clearly weren’t one family, a blind date saying nice to meet you, nobody using the sanitising station etc. Most restaurants are desperate to stay open and asking diners to help them do so, this was another level of relaxed! On top of all of this we were asked to hurry up and leave to make way for the next sitting in a not very polite way when trying to finish our meal. I’ve just cancelled my reservation at the sister restaurant Cambio as I expect it’s the same staff and I’d rather not witness this chaos again. It’s funny times and we are all very much over the restrictions on our lives but I’d rather stick to them and have the restaurants open than closed!

This is a local favourite for us. Due to lockdown we needed to sit outside and this was possible but we got some unasked for attitude from the waiter who seated us. It was quite cold outside despite heaters. We loved the food and wine.

We’ve been coming to cambio de tercio and tendido cero for over 15 years, and I’m very pleased to be able to say the quality has remained of a very high standard throughout. The periodic slight tweaks to the menu keep things modern, but there’s a timeless authenticity to proceedings that keeps us coming back whenever we crave a slice of Spain.

Arrived late , staff were still helpful but tried to rush us ordering , unfortunate
Beware menu on your phone , check prices of wine and food , they are not very user friendly
Like the food and restaurant , the staff are usually very friendly and the kitchen is both good and efficient

Great food in a nearly empty restaurant on a quiet Sunday night. I was quite shocked by the bill at nearly £100 per head for Tapas, desert and a few glasses of wine.

Very enjoyable and relaxed spot of casual Spanish dining, excellent selection of tapas and good sangria, nice athmosphere and friendly service. Good Spanish wine selection as well. It is not cheap, and some tapas might not be exactly what you want, but by and large there is little to detract from a pleasant evening or lunch. Even in current times the place is well-attended and has a vibe.

We had dinner at Tendido Cero on the last night of EOTHO. The staff were friendly and kind - and to my son’s delight they even responded to his “thank you” in German - and the good was excellent. Looking forward to going back.
