We opened Casa Brindisa in 2008 as our family style restaurant on Exhibition Road in South Kensington. True to its name, it’s inspired by Spanish home cooking – serving a seasonal selection of tapas, cured plates and farmhouse cheeses.

We are also known for our family-style sharing dishes such as our ‘txuleton’ Basque steak. From family lunches before the museums to late night suppers with friends, our home is your home.

Brunch to dinner | Located next to London’s museums & Royal Albert Hall | Perfect for family dining | All Spanish wine list | Cocktails & perfect serves | Family-friendly | Outdoor terrace | Open kitchen

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.
I had booked a table as I was meeting up with my sister and an old school friend. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and had a good old natter!

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 noisy and lively place especially as we were in a weird table at the top of the stairs, but food was great and the service was amazing - friendly and quick - considering how busy they were.

After making the booking early plus a somewhat empty restaurant, we had to stand around for about 15 min. Food was good but, ambiance is a bit cafe like vs restaurant

If you fancy a quick bite to eat and don’t mind a “full” price then the experience is OK.

I wouldn’t go for a special occasion. And have had much better Tapas

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.

Food was not very special. The jamon was dry and sliced too thick. None of our dishes shone and yet all were priced at a premium rate. I still regret this disappointing expense.
