Description: Rincón (meaning nook or corner) is set in a quirky old building, literally on a corner in a quiet part of historic Richmond-Upon–Thames.Behind the intriguing facade, a warm yet professional welcome awaits you. 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. The Tapas bar has an air of contemporary chic with stylish furniture, wooden floors and some beautiful examples of modern Spanish photography.Come and enjoy a Tapa and a glass of wine or sherry in our bar area or spend a little longer and relax and settle down in our comfortable lounge. The ideal place for a quick drink and a snack as you pass or long evenings with good friends, delightful Tapas and fine wine.We hope to see you soon, hasta la luego, The Izquierdo Family

I'm a big fan of this place and recently held my daughter's Christening party here. The Manager couldn't be more helpful, talking me through the best menu options and music choices for the day. We had the raised area at the back of the room, which was lovely as it felt quite private, despite being close to the bar and the staff were all great with the children. Lovely food as always (and the cava went down well too)! So happy to have this as our local!

We had all the tapas except for the chicken ones and the tortilla, the tortilla was very nice, not dry, good filling and good taste, the tapas were very reasonably priced and even better for happy hour (530 till 730). The wine selection is all Spanish, we went for a medium range red wine (not rioja) and the taste was excellent, the food was served in a timely fashion. Overall a very positive experience and will definitely visit again when in the area.

We went here on a quiet Monday night, hence the indifferent ambience as it was really quiet.
The tapas were very good though, especially on an early evening with the half price tapas (until 7.30). The octopus and spicy calamari particularly good.
It would be a different story on a busy night as the bar/restaurant area is well laid out and would be great for larger groups.

We had our son's 21st birthday at Rincon. It was fabulous, great food and a lovely atmosphere. They provided wonderful tapas, friendly attentive staff. We provided our own cake and music which was absolutely no problem. We have been to Rincon several times now and the standard is always exceptional.

I love this tapas bar so I decided to hold a 'flowers and moustaches' party there. What a success! The staff and proprietors could not do enough for us. The sangria flowed and the food was delicious (particularly the Teruel ham which they cut off the bone on the evening!). The atmosphere was fantastic and the Mariachi singer got everyone involved in the entertainment! I highly recommend this bar - sophisticated with good food and wine, yet great fun!
