Really nice tapas though just a bit limited, we arrived after 9pm and the kit he was closing, so they serve us a bit of cheese and a nice bottle of wine. Shame they can't sort there kitchen out

We enjoyed our visit here. Service quick and there was a buzzy atmosphere on Sat night. But the food was only average. Not bad, but not inspiring.

Having been to Richmond quite a few times, I wanted to try something new and Rincon did not disappoint. The atmosphere was lively but not too loud. The service was attentive but not intrusive. I tried nearly every tapas item on the menu, because the portions were just fine for one and it was a lot of fun to have... More

Visited with a friend last week, food was delicious and a great variety of tapas options available, with both small and large options for most menu items. Seating is more suited to informal meals, with only a few tables and mostly seats around the edge of the restaurant, which gave it a lovely feel and a great atmosphere. Staff were... More

Went here last night and was really impressed. Recommend the prawns in coriander and chilli. Some excellent tapas all round. The only thing that lost it a star was slow service. When we were trying to settle the bill, I nearly had to do a dance to catch their attention. But all round, very good.

This is a great place to go on a Friday / Saturday night. It's a pretty small restaurant and has a terrific buzzy vibe without being too much in your face. We didn't book but got ourselves a good spot by the window bar. The food was terrific. We had the selection of meats, the chicken, calamari, crab croquettes (lush),... More

I didn't have any expectations when we called here. The atmosphere lacked a bit of fizz but it wasn't packed & so was hard to judge. The layout is better suited to a bar than somewhere to eat but that's my view. Food was ok but could have had a bigger tapas choice just to make it better & the... More

My wife and I ate at Rincon while we were staying for a month in a flat in Richmond. Between 12:00 and 14:00 all tapas are half priced - an amazing deal. We shared eight dishes and were disappointed by none. We chose a pitcher of sangria to accompany our lunch, but the offering of six sherries was also appealing.... More
