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”

I always love coming back and bringing new friends. food is always tasty and fresh. It was limited this time round on selection of champagne and wine, but that's understandable with all the Brexit craziness! Staff are also just lovely!

Staff was friendly, engaging and the food was spectacular. Only downside for me was the lighting could be better and the door designed in a way to reduce a draft during autumn / winter. If it was summer however it would have been divine! Defo recommend!

Most of the food was good, but a couple of dishes were awful and not what you'd expect for the money. Service was good and the atmosphere nice, just don't feel the food is good value for money.

Love this restaurant but they have really extraordinarily draconian booking rules! £50 charge per person for no shows etc. Makes one extremely nervous when booking for a group as never can tell if people will be ill etc. Plus the waiter asked us to ‘move on’ so they could get another sitting in in a rude offensive manner hence I have marked it down a star. Several of my party were really offended and vowed not to go back. Restaurants we know you were shut during Covid but you have sacrificed what should be a relaxing experience for greed. Shame.

I was very much looking forward to tendido, however, it was a massive disappointment.

The restaurant was too small, the waiting staff had no room and the tables were so close.

We Sat down, tried the wine and although it tasted ok on the first sip. The second gulp was horrible. Upon telling the manager we got an odd response and felt really uncomfortable.

I have to say the second wine we had was fantastic, but it did put a really odd spin on the night and we didn’t feel welcome at all … we were ready to leave as soon as a possible.

Food:

The waitresses recommendation of the Jamón on bread was stunning. The famous croquette were average and the pork pluma was very fatty - to be honest it looked like we got the chucked away ends

I was trying tendido to see if the restaurant cambio would be good, safe to say I won’t be visiting either

An old favorite that doesn't disappoint. The staff are wonderful and the atmosphere was buzzing and the food is always good. the only disappointment was being sat right at the back of the restaurant when I had specifically asked if we could sit on the pavement of closer to the entrance in my reservation.

The food was literally amazing! Their tomato bread is a must. The wine which was recommended was also fantastic and their expresso martinis well a great way to finish a lovely evening out watching the world go by. We will return.
