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”

Amazing! Such good food. Modern spin on tapas. Even the spicy potato bravas were special. Lamb cutlets, oxtail, scallops and octopus were the standout dishes. Would go again and again!

Have been to this family of restaurants many times and always loved them. Tonight was disappointing. The food was cold. We were served the wrong thing twice. We were rushed off of our table. It was not the usual quality of food, service nor experience.

The most amazing gin menu and cocktails! Our server was amazing - giving us plenty of attention, recommendations and advice despite having a party of about 20 to wait on, too.

Year after Year Tendido Cero and it's sister restaurants along the Old Brompton Road win us over with their phenomenal food, great service and exceptional quality of ingredients. A rare continued success story in London's busy restaurant scene we have enjoyed many evenings in this great restaurant and I can only highly recommend their Tapas and extensive Spanish wine list. The list of highlights from their seasonally changing Tapas Menu is too long to mention here but it is definitively worth paying for their somewhat pricier speciality hams and seafood dishes.

We had to go across the street to their other restaurant since it was under renovation but we got the same menu and the food was fantastic and the service superb. Our server was fro Spain and had excellent recommendations. I really liked the salmon tartar and my husband's favorite was the chorizo. There were many other authentic dishes that reminded me of our trip to Spain. For an evening I felt like I left London and was dining in Barcelona.

The Tendido is under construction, so we had to go to the sister-restaurant across the road.
The prices do not represent the quality of the food. On average it is a good place, but a bit too pricey for what you get.

The restaurant is being refurbished and customers need to go to their sister restaurant across the road. Poor signage telling you such, nearly went home. They then give you two menus one for each restaurant. One expensive and one reasonable which suddenly became the most expensive tapas ever.

I haven't been to Tendido Cero for seven years. What a waste of many opportunities. It is as good as it has ever been. From a hasty and gracious change of table to the super-attentive service and wonderful tapas. I won't be waiting another seven years.

Staff was great from the time we entered to the time we left. Took extra special care of my nieces with some adjustments to their meals. No complaints on any of our courses.

Added touch was that my niece went to the washroom and at that same time they had a power glitch and the place went dark and she got scared and tried to get back to the table. Was in tears cause she panicked. Staff felt so sorry for her they brought her some chocolate truffles and caramel to sooth her discomfort. It helped.

Will definitely be back to this restaurant and would definitely recommend it.

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.

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.

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!
