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”

    Excellent food, with some creative twists on some classic tapas. Extensive wine list. Expensive by our provincial standards but perhaps not for a big city.

    Good ambiance, great service, almost too efficient! Food was a bit hit and miss, some really nice dishes, but the tortilla was raw and runny and the cheesecake also looked and tasted undercooked.

    Menu has been recently refreshed with old favorites retained but some new items added - the new fish options are particularly good. Staff are fun and friendly and the food is served in a buzzy setting.

    Wery Good food. You were only allowed to keep the table for 1.5 hours and the staff were a bit stressed to finish. was told that we had to leave as soon as the time was up. otherwise lovely food and could have happily sat longer to eat and drink.

    This is our second visit and the food does not disappoint. Everything is extremely well done - particularly recommend the ham croquettes and the ‘elegant’ patatas bravas . The asparagus was also delicious as was the salmon and avocado taco. Cheese and hams were spectacular. Service is attentive and friendly. The only downside is that it all goes by a bit too quickly - everything comes at a pace - we were in and out in an hour. Not necessarily a bad thing but sometimes you want it to feel just that little bit more relaxed. It is a buzzy, noisy restaurant - not the place for a quiet chat.

    Nice food, relatively good service. The place is very noisy. Number of wines on the list not available. Overall, they seemed to be in a rush for serving the food. If we would not have slowed them down, we would have been out of the restaurant within the hour. Not my idea of dining in a restaurant on a Saturday night. Will not come back here.
