Great food and fantastic service in a busy, buzzy tapas restaurant.

The staff were absolutely first rate and their recommendations for food and wine were spot on. The service really was brilliant, thank you.

Great selection of tapas, can recommend the Octopus dish and prawn croquettes. The olives were to die for! Fantastic service, waitress extremely helpful in assisting with choosing Spanish wine which is compatible to wine we usually drink. Best to book no matter time you are thinking of - we were there at 3.30pm on a Saturday and it was very busy. Will return.

Yes to the food and the bar tender who was amazing really helpful and couldn’t do enough for us, it’s a shame that the waiter and the welcome host wasn’t the same . All these two seem to care about was chatting to each other. When we first walked in the welcome was cold and unfriendly and we actually thought the restaurant was closed by the reaction we received. Bar tender totally different if it hadn’t been for him we would have left we were recommended to this restaurant! Hope no one else had this experience

On the expensive side for both food and drink so when something isn't very good, like the merluza which was virtually textureless and tasteless you feel a bit resentful! But overall very good.

This place is amazing. We celebrate a birthday here and the waiter was outstanding - He put a candle in our desert to celebrate and was so genuine with the service he provided. The food was lovely as was all the sangria. The weather was raining so the atmosphere changed as everyone decided to come inside for food - however fortunately we were finishing at this moment.

We all really enjoyed the food and experience and I would highly recommend this place, the staff provide a great service!

My guest and I were very taken with the style and the food. My only criticism would be that portions were a little on the small side (even for tapas), but the quality of the food and the service were first rate. This was my second visit and I shall certainly be back.

I’ve been to this branch before and basically like it for a quick bite and a glass of wine. Last time we ordered a few small plates and had two glasses of wine each and was shocked by the bill (over £80) for what was in essence a snack.

Best meal we had while visiting London from Chicago! We happened to chat with another American couple at a pub we were at and they recommend making reservations here - BEST suggestion ever! Soho is such a fun and charming area and a meal at Tapas Brindisa... absolute perfection. I'm glad we made a reservation because the place itself was quite small, but they made perfect and effective use of the space. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and we felt very welcomed. Everything our lips touched was amazing. We took the advice to just 'not mess around and order a pitcher of the red wine sangria' and we were not disappointed. That stuff went down like a chubby kid on a seesaw! I could have consumed my own pitcher easily :-) but maybe not wisely. We (my husband and I) ended up sharing about 6 plates/dishes and 1 pitcher of sangria and left feeling comfortable and satisfied. Again, I can't say enough good things about this place... If we ever find ourselves in London again, this has become a MUST STOP for us! Enjoy!

Disappointed with the service, we sent back two dishes because the fish was not cooked (and it was not supposed to be raw in the first place) and did not receive any apologies whatsoever. As 11pm approached, our glasses were removed from the table although we were not done (still had Sangria in the jar) and after a while we were asked to leave because the restaurant was closing. not the first time this happens, but could have been asked much more politely, instead of just kicking us out.

The food was quite good and the price is reasonable for the location. However, the service was bit slow and not enough attention from service team. We had to chase our orders a couple of times, because they forgot. No bread was offered or topped up before we asked.

Lovely evening! Very good service - tasters of wines were offered even though we only wanted a couple of glasses. We didn’t mean to but ended up choosing some of the cheaper options on the menu so had a very tasty and reasonably priced evening. A small red mullet dish at £14 and lamb chops at about the same would have changed that very quickly! My only complaint is that 90 mins turnaround is even too quick for the kitchen - and definitely tight for these prices.

Ambiance was the only one I put lower because of where we were sitting, not ideal for when waiters and clients are walking up and down the restaurant. A part from that service and food was great! The cheese was perhaps a little overpriced for what was on the board... however I would recommend and go again!

Had a table booked for 6.45pm and were rushed out for 8.15pm even though we spent £100 for 2 people. They told us about the timings as soon as we got there and was quite annoying.

However, the place is brilliant and the food is very good.
