Really overpriced for the experience. Being early we were harassed by waiting staff - i think they wanted us out asap: this one chick wouldn't leave us alone and didn't get the hint to get lost. She kept on trying to pull our plates while we were still chewing and with food on our plates! I love tapas, the food was good quality but I thought the prices were damn ambitious. 4 tomato pieces with 1 slice of sausage was £7. Plus the order was wrong - epinacas became patata brava, tortilla became sardines - but did they comp it? did they heck. Hit the South Ken branch only if you are absolutely stuck, I'd say.

I've been to Brindisa a few times and always enjoyed it. This visit was a disappointment, though.

We were placed in a quiet table in an alcove, which was fine except there was no passing service and we had a number of waits.

The food itself was a huge disappointment. So-so in terms of flavour, many of the dishes were cold, and an over-long wait between dishes. We'd waited so long to get our hot dishes that we didn't want to complain and have to wait even longer for replacements.

Sadly, I doubt I'll eat in Brindisa again.

Nice, welcoming staff who advised on a good combination of tapas which were very tasty. Great to have carafes of wine available as a bottle is too much for 2 people. I enjoyed it a lot

The service did not go completely smoothly with a couple of dishes missed off our order due to a technical problem with the order system but they sorted it out to our complete satisfaction and it did not affect the enjoyment of our leisurely lunch. Everyone gets things wrong on occasions but it is how you put them right and Brindisa put things right perfectly well

Great authentic Tapas restaurant with a real buzz. We ate pre Theatre and found it ideal. The service was friendly and knowledgeable and the food to a good standard. The Tapas was fresh and authentic, washed down by a couple of bottles of excellent and well priced red wine.

Lovely food, great atmosphere, charming waiter - didn't catch his name but he told us he was from Galicia.

Please dont greet guests who booked days in advance by saying “i must earn you that you only have this table for 90 minutes” . Then leave the customer nearly 20 minutes before beginning to take any order for drinks or food. Ridiculous

Enjoyed a tasty selection of tapas at Casa Brindisa. Not the cheapest tapas I've ever had but good quality and we did have quite an expensive bottle of wine which bumped the price up. The waitress took note that our friends needed to go to a concert and made sure that the dishes came promptly. The atmosphere was a little noisy but bearable.

Food good if portions a little on the small size. Some dishes well priced, whereas others a bit steep for quantity of food. Also, jug of Sangria at £24 is a bit of a rip-off. Good atmosphere, and lovely staff.

While the food was lovely and the service was good, it wasn't good value for money. Tapas are of course small portions so if you are feeling hungry then don't go there. It's great if all you fancy is a drink with a tapa on the side but I went for a meal with a couple of other people, bought a few tapas, spent tons of money and still left hungry afterwards. Sure, call it my fault for going to a tapas bar and not a 'proper' restaurant, but still I've been to many tapas bars that were cheaper and provided much larger portions whilst not compromising the quality of the food.

Very disappointed. Extremely small portions of everything at a (relatively) high price. The 'fritura' was pathetic, the squid barely recognisable. The shrimps al ajillo were embarrasing in number. On the upside, the charcuterie was of good quality and the service was polite and efficient. This used to be a go-to place for authentic tapas, but is no longer.

Good quality innovative tapas but portions very small ( even for tapas) and therefore somewhat overpriced. And when you order a dish that says ‘anchovies’ you expect to get more than one!

Casa Brindisa has some of the best Tapas in London. I both like the fact that they change the menu regularly but get disappointed when favourites disappear. Although the food is good and staff very pleasant, I do think it’s a bit expensive. Six tapas, one bottle of water, and one beer = £61 plus, inc service and VAT.
