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

“Great place for drinks or dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

Love this tapas restaurant in Richmond. The food is good and there's a fun, lively atmosphere. Staff are great, helpful and smiley and the Spanish wine that was recommended to us was delicious. It's a perfect way to spend an evening, feels lovely and sociable. Definitely a place I plan to return to again and again.

“Great tapas, really friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

We went here for a Tuesday night bite and glass of wine. Sat out the counter by the window. The wine recommended by the waitress was great. All the tapas were delicious including some fantastic chilli and garlic prawns, aubergine, potatos with a paprika sauce. All jolly nice and a great place to head

“A lovely, late lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

My wife and I love Spanish food, especially tapas. Having arrived in Richmond around 11:00and then checking in and doing an errand we were looking for a place to eat. It was about 1:30 and we were well aware of restaurants only serving until 2:00. So we took a chance and dove in to Rincon. We sat at the bar and were served there. The bartender was friendly and very knowledgeable. We had a delightful seri es of plates. Even though we were at the very tail end of lunch hour, the food was fresh and kitchen service timely. How well a place does Calamari is usually a key indicator of quaity. We had the calamari croquettes-perfect. Highly recommend this place. If we were locals, Rincon would be our hangout!

“Great fun way to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

We have been here several times after an early cinema trip. Although it has been crowded they have always managed to find us somewhere to eat. We select tapas and have had various combinations, all of which we have enoyed, Service is quick and friendly and there is a lively atmosphere. Will certainly go back.

“Fantastic For wine, service and an evening snack.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

The one thing that brings me back everytime to this wine bar, is the great service.
I love their attitude to wine, and the romantic setting of the dark wooden features.

The Lady That works there, I cannot remember her name, but has a fantastic spanish accent. She is very polite and elegant in the way she has served me in the past, the gentlemen have always had a great chat with me when I go in, and are happy to serve their guests.

Give it a go for the experience, Their Music playlist is also a great listening to!

Ill see you guys soon!
