Our attentive and friendly staff create a professional but relaxed atmosphere.The Izquierdo family aim to bring you the very best of modern Spain, simple un fussy Tapa dishes fusing the best traditional Spanish ingredients with new and exciting elements, championing and enhancing seasonal produce, much of which is sourced from the finest British and Spanish suppliers.Spanish wine and sherry has long been a family passion and our notable wine list has outstanding selections to complement each dish. Our lovingly compiled range includes finest Spanish wines to exciting new wine from unusual grape varieties or less known regions.You can also enjoy ‘cubatas’ (long drinks) served in the proper Spanish way, a tall glass, lots of ice, a double measure of spirit and a bottle of mixer.The now third generation of restaurateurs, the Izquierdo family, originally form Andalucía in southern Spain, have been in Richmond for over thirty years and bring that wealth of experience and knowledge to their new venture.

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...

We have been to Rincon a couple of times for a good glass of wine and some tapas before going to the cinema. Relaxed comfortable atmosphere and friendly service.

Used my tastecard for 50% off all food but even if you don't have one, it's half price tapas every weekday from 5.30-7.30. Tried a bit of most things the highlight being the lamb cutlets, lovely and succulent and rounded it all off with some churros and chocolate sauce. Tapas are very small so prob need at least 10 between... More

My friend and I visited here on a friday evening. We had a very enjoyable visit. The bar staff were very pleasant and friendly. We sat on a table in the corner by the window and it felt fairly intimate even with others around mainly due to the lighting and the atmosphere. I didnt find the music too overbearing and... More

Went here expecting good things but the night was distinctly average. The staff were attentive and friendly and i wanted to like the place. However the atmosphere was loud and not very Spanish (indy music from the 80's makes it difficult to relax) , the low seating makes it difficult to eat and the tapas were ok but there are... More

The bf and I decided to try Rincon on Saturday evening and it didn't disappoint. We had a bottle of the rosé, which was really nice and very reasonable at £18.50 for the bottle. We then went on to have olives and crisps whilst deciding which tapas to have, we chose 6 in total for two which was just enough,... More

A very good small but perfectly former tapas selection complemented by a very good small but perfectly formed (and reasonably priced) wine list. Nice decor and ambience, unpretentious but comfortable and the service was excellent. Portion sizes are fine and the calamari was as tasty as I've had pretty much anywhere. We'd had an extremely pleasant day and this was... More
