Cambio de Tercio is the signature Restaurant of Cambio De Tercio Restaurant Group, located in the heart of Chelsea- South Kensington. It was open in June, 1995 and is a pioneer in offering modern and innovative Spanish cuisine in London.

We also offer traditional Spanish tapas, but it is our Chef Alberto Criado’s creative dishes, what defines us and has given us our name.

Our award winning “wine list” contains the largest and more diverse selection of Spanish wines anywhere in London.

Within our renovated premises, you can now have dinner at our Chef’s table situated in our kitchen or enjoy one of our Spanish style Gin & Tonic at our “C.Tonic” Bar, with a large 80+ premium gin’s menu.

The Restaurant has gained many accolades during the years including the much coveted “ PREMIO ALIMENTOS DE ESPANA 2003- awarded by the Spanish Minister of Agriculture, Fishing and Food as “The Best Spanish Restaurant in any country outside Spain, 2003”

    The food is consistently good, the raw materials are excellent and always fresh. The wine list is refreshingly extensive , only Spanish. Prices are fair and offer an extensive range of high quality and unusual Spanish wines. Service is both attentive and knowledgable. Atmosphere is lively and authentic. An truly enjoyable evening

    Food was tasty but not a good value for money. There are better options for Spanish food within the price range. Service was below expectation, a bit confusing for a Saturday afternoon when the restaurant was not super busy. Overall experience was ok but I wouldn't come back.

    Cameriera frettolosa e non cordiale. Mi ha portato il vino al bicchiere senza farmi vedere la bottiglia, Cibo davvero scadente Prezzo esagerato per quello che si mangia. Da evitare !!

    This is a nice place with good food. The service and organisation is not as good as it should be - slightly chaotic. It's also very noisy when it is busy. Finally, I'd say the price point is higher than the quality.

    This is a lovely restaurant, frequented by well heeled Spanish ex pats. The service is exceptional. We had two super professional Spanish ladies looking after us with smiles and good cheer. The food is delicious. I have not given it an overall 5* simply because it is very expensive, and the food is extremely rich. It reminded me of classic French food served many decades ago. Amazing, but a little dose of green salad or plain something would have helped.

    Fabulous tapas. Leeks were delicious with 2 sauces. Croquettas excellent, patatas bravas are a work of art and the salmon nigiri was deliciously crisp with a great sauce. Extensive and reasonably-priced Spanish wine list. Lovely welcome and 'goodbye' with all staff being very pleasant and helpful. You must book as this place is buzzing!

    Lovely restaurant..staff was helpful, inviting, and steered us to the perfect amount of food! Menu selections were terrific … must return to try other dishes! We’ve traveled several times in Spain and this ranked among one of the most memorable! Excelled! Ambiance was enticing … a good vibe with lots of people clearly enjoying the company and the food. Not to be missed!

    We choose this restaurant Michelin guide and The main problem is hospitality. When we went 15 minutes early our reservation, they did not let us in even just to have a drink. Even though we specifically stated that there was no place to sit around and that the weather was cold, we were told very rudely to come on time because the place was completely empty. Rules are important but this was the rudest behavior we have ever seen. Especially the attempt to shout and rush out was very rude. We had to wait because we could cancel with a penalty of 50 GBP per person, but I think it would be more logical to cancel by paying 50 GBP per person. quality and performance was the worst experience so far. The service quality and plate contents were quite poor.

    The three restaurants - Cambio de Tercio, Tendido Cero and Capote y Toros are all excellent. Cambio is the 'high end' restaurant, and the food is excellent, as it is at the other two - the menus at Tendido and Cambio share a number of dishes. I prefer the atmosphere and relative informality of Tendido, but that is a personal preference. All are excellent.
