Spanish fun good buzzy tapas and sangria

The owner of multiple. Spanish restaurants Abel is creating an empire in South Kensington it is becoming also a place to see and be seen celebrities tend to go there but I have not seen paparazzi yet. Food is excellent with good choices croquettes and cochinillo are special

Had dinner on a Thursday night. Service was really good, they look after you and good chat with them. Wine recommended was really good. Between the four of us, we had 16 tapas including dessert and white chocolate truffles compliments of the chef. The Spanish olives were the best we ever had, creamy and light. Worth ordering are wagyu beef... More

This was a brilliant night out in a trendy modern restaurant in Old Brompton Road. Bookings are essential - we were lucky to get a table. The waiters gave excellent advice on which courses were ideal to mix and match. We were feted to some great traditional tastes in serving sizes that meant you could get a range of flavours,... More

I love this place, Abel, Paco and the team are the most welcoming people, and the food never fails to disappoint. I lived in Spain for a few years and never had tapas as good as the ones here. Highly recommended are the lamb chops, patatas bravas, tortilla 'El Bulli', croquetas that melt in your mouth, pimientos padrillo and basically... More

Wow! What a lovely place. The tapas are fantastic and beautifully presented. The surroundings are upmarket for a tapas restaurant and the prices quite high but the quality of the food fantastic with service to match. Great winelist. Highly recommended!

I went there for dinner on a saturday evening with my other half and we were not disappointed. We had a good table in the middle of the restaurant, started with a glass of cava and then followed by 8 brilliant tapas. There was nothing disappointing in any of them. They were all bite size and very elegantly presented and... More

Cambio should be Michelin rated by now. The food is divine... a cacophany of flavors and textures which excite the mouth. Service is impeccable. Its popularity has grown to the point, that we now book weeks in advance to secure a table.

We ordered so many tapas that I can barely remember. But I do remember the Galician octopus. We ordered that twice. Cosy, just the right service, and all the food amazing.

We visited on a Sunday night about 10 pm after a concert at the Albert Hall and really enjoyed the food, wine,service and environment - we would definitely return. It was busy and efficient but also friendly and not at all rushed.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
