An excellent experience with delicious food

We very much enjoyed our visit to this tapas bar. We were there to eat pre-theatre. It is only a short distance through the town to the Richmond Theatre. The selection of wine is extremely good but the food is even better. We had a bottle of Finca Resalso at £21.75 accompanied by several tapas... read more

We called in quite by chance one Sunday evening. There was a jazz band playing and the place was busy so thought it would be nice to have some wine and the featured paella. The wine was reasonably priced and very good, as was the atmosphere. More disappointing was the food - the signature paella was fairly bland and the... More

Good place to go for a drink and a couple of tapas however I was expecting a higher quality of food, thus I wouldn't recommend it for dinner.

A group of four, we arrived quite late on Friday night after being at the Theatre, wanting a bite to eat. The staff were very accommodating and very clear in a friendly way that we had about 5 mins to order food. The food was excellent and the accompanying wine perfect. Rincon is a wonderful independent place that I will... More

We wanted a quick bite to eat prior to going on somewhere and chose Rincon. We were made to feel comfortable very quickly and room was found for us to sit. The tapas that we ordered came quickly and were delicious. All the staff were attentive without being overbearing (and were mainly Spanish!) and we found the prices very reasonable.... More

I have the pleasure of working in Richmond and more often that not on a Friday this is my first stop on the way home. With amazing, friendly staff, I feel comfortable on my own or when meeting friends. The Tapas is well worth it, especially at Half Price Happy Hour!! Washed down with a lovely glass of white rioja...
