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 have been to this restaurant several times over the years because the food is good. However, on this occasion the experience was very poor simply because the service received from the waitress was awful. Rude and offhand. Totally inappropriate in a front facing customer service role.

    Nice atmosphere, foods are moderate but portions are really small. Desks and tables are really small and not that comfortable. The street and the environment are beautiful, the restaurant should be tried, however it is not a place you go all the time.

    We were looking for a restaurant near Gloucester Rd. that was still serving food at 10pm on a weekday. Searching this app, a few tapas places came up, so we tried this one. It was amazing - everyone loved the food and service, and we couldn’t believe the value. I’d give it a sixth star for value if I could.

    The food was very good. But the portions are tiny, so it was a much more expensive meal than we had anticipated. Service was inconsistent. An espresso we hadn’t ordered was added to our bill. Restaurant was very loud, but it was pleasant sitting near the open doors.

    This is not the fine tapas restaurant it once was, which is a real shame. They've cut down on the menu, and can't be bothered to print a wine list because a QR code is all we need, apparently. Oh no it's not. The waitress seemed to think it was okay to suggest a wine which cost £10 more than the one I had chosen. The racket coming out of the sound system might have been loud enough for the staff, but they weren't trying to have a lunch time conversation with a friend. Tendido Cero has forgotten who the customer is. Let me know when they remember.

    Flavoursome and nicely presented posh tapas. Understandably for the area and the clientele the food was a little overpriced for what you get but not excessively so. An unusual “special” on the drinks front was a frozen margarita which was surprisingly good, strong and well rounded. Highlights amongst the food included the top price sliced T Bone which was excellently cooked medium rare and very tasty but necessarily so at £37.50. Also the patatas bravas, served as a platter of individual two-bite rounds of fried potatoes with a salsa filling and spicy mayo topping. Don’t bother with the Sherry cooked chorizo but do consider the garlic and chilli prawns or the excellently unctuous pork cheeks on a smooth potato cream.

    Fab original delicious food . Service almost too good as felt a little rushed through our meal. But this is tapas sharing so there are constantly dishes being delivered and taken away. The constant topping up of wine is not as necessary though. Lovely venue. Authentic. Excellent

    Poor service from his manager. I have a booking at 7 pm. I arrive 25 min late because of the traffic. I call before of course to let them know and he make clear the I have to leave the table by 9:00 pm. In this one hour and half he was repeating to me like 5 times the I have to leave the table by 9. I couldn’t enjoy my food and my wine plus the octopus wasn’t well cook. To hard to eat. Feel like he was trying to keep me out. 8:59 he come to tell me I have to leave the table because the other guest arrive. I really don’t understand why? The was another 5 table’s empty. He have to much to learn form the amazing manager Paco in his brother restaurant cambio de tercio.

    The food was very very good. Better than I remembered it - so that was a plus. I make a booking for 10 people, we ended up being 9. It was my birthday. I feel like the staff made zero effort to make it a special night for me/us. They have a minimum fee of £60 pp and a £50pp cancellation fee. They charged us £60 for the person who cancelled - which while only a £10 difference is exemplary of the general tone. Felt very transactional ans cold. I would recommend for a quick bite but not a special occasion.
