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

Just right for an early evening wine and tapas in Richmond. Tasty tapas and efficient service. Tried a number of dishes, all very good and homemade. Very comfortable seating at the window watching the Richmond world go by.

Five pound for a new potato and a teaspoon of octopus, wouldn'd fill a bad tooth. Prawns murdered with lime juice chilli and coriander. Squid in some jar tasting tomatoe sauce. When we complained waiter said he understood, the manager disappeared and no discount was offered. Wine was good! Lots of Spanish people in restaurant they were all drinking only.... More
