Been here before, so was having high expectations. We visited later in the evening and the place was nearly full. We ordered mix of tapas to share. Some on them were good like the gambas pil pil, the Chicken and lamb skewers chicken empanadas. Some not so much. The sausage were nearly charred and hard. The lamb and pork meat... More

My husband is Spanish and so we spend a lot of time in Spain and he is usually hesitant about Spanish restaurants in London but we were looking for a light snack and decided to stop in. First of all everyone who works there is Portuguese, not Spanish and their food is quite different. We ordered a variety of dishes... More

Perhaps it was a mistake to visit here so soon after returning from Spain. Everything about the experience was just about OK, food service etc, and being Richmond it wasn't cheap.

I have had so many meals here over the past 25 years and they have all been good. Stick to the tapas menu and choose things like their lovely fresh calamari, and my favourite pulpo (octopus) sliced over potatoes and sprinkled with paprika. Recommend the croquettas too.

Average tapas in my opinion. Does a job but nothing special. The speed at which they bring out the food after taking the order is very quick = they must microwave the food. A large restaurant inside and they seem to focus on selling lots of food as quickly as possible rather than quality.

The place is nice but when trying different tapas, quality is not the highest and something is not actually Spanish (i.e. brie). Paella is nice but again not perfect (frozen seafood helps in keeping quality average). Overall opinion: nice place where to spend the evening but do not expect to be like in Spain.

I'm local and end up here every three months or so with a sister or friend or two. There's something for my vegetarian friends and family so it's great to have a mixture of dishes in the middle of the table. I assume it's family run, as there are always the same staff , open to banter and happy to... More

Having lived in Richmond for several years I chose Don Fernandos to host my retirement dinner with 15 of my colleagues/friends. The restaurant ( with particular mention for Maria) could not do enough to help make the evening special, spending time with me before the event to discuss menus , wine, billing and timings - and on the evening providing...
