On a tuesday night my husband and i decided to have dinner here. We did get a table immediately, however, from the moment we were seated we were made to feel uncomfortable and rushed. Since I had a proper view of the area, I could see we had the so-called restaurant manager to check on how tables are doing and... More

Don't order the pigs trotters. It's full of slimey tendonous fat, not worth the price, and the ox tail was burnt and measly. The suckling pig main was disappointing to say the least. We also ordered tapas, and the saving grace was the tender lamb chops. The grilled pulpo was delicious but spoiled by the gungy melted cheese it was... More

My friends and I had dinner at Cambio De Tercio on Saturday evening. The service was very attentive and it seemed as though there were two waitstaff for every patron! The burgers and lamb were especially excellent. Everything was well cooked and flavorful. The only negative is that they charged for the bread that they placed on the table. I... More

Not my first visit but I fear it may be my last. Highly recommend the Galicean octopus, foie gras and slow cooked pork. Best to avoid their side dishes (amateurish, flavourless and unappealing to the eye). Biggest disappointment was being charged a petty £1.50 for the table bread - especially as my partner is gluten intolerant. A G & T... More

The hotel staff of the NH Kensington recommended this hotel to our group. The food was top notch, you will not go away hungry and the food is high quality and full of flavor.

We visited in April. We thought that the food was first class but certainly no better than Baraffina in Soho where you can eat at half the price. We were under the impression that there was a Gin Bar next door but this is actually part of the restaurant. A bit confusing. We plumped for the mixture of tapas. We... More

I dined here with friends recently and really enjoyed the very tasty tapas and delicious red Sangria. The tapas were more innovative and interesting than what you might find at a more traditional tapas bar. I especially recommend the 8-hours roasted tomatoes! After a fine meal, head across the street to Eclipse Bar for cool cocktails and a hip vibe.

It is hard to do justice to this fabulous Spanish restaurant on the Old Brompton Road. The decor is probably best described as a "Modern Iberian Theme " with the red/gold national colors dominating. The warm welcome by "el padron", Abel Lusa, makes everybody instantly feel like a member of the family. Assisted by a young, enthusiastic team, Abel has... More

This is one of three within 100 yards presumably belonging to the same group.The food is reliably good though i really cant understand why tapas has become so expensive.

Been to this place several times. Gradually getting worse. Waited one hour to get the table. Overprized food, overhyped place. Treated like cattle all night. With so many great tapas places in london, avoid this one.
