Nestled near Carnaby Street and Oxford Street, we’ve been a favourite foodie haunt for years on Broadwick Street, Soho. We got our inspiration from the bustling bodegas synonymous with Spanish cities.

Bodegas are intimate, local joints where artisanal beers, sherries, and wines are served with impeccably sourced food. Our menu boasts a sensational selection of tapas, great bar snacks and traditional Spanish comfort food.

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.

It was great, food’s great and good service. Maybe some dishes are a little overpriced. We thought that the included service was a bit much but maybe it’s because we’re not used to tip that much in Belgium 😉

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.

Very poor. A sad reflection today of what used to be a great tapas place. Soggy stale potato bravado, eggs with soggy potato - poor steak. Shame to see a former great restaurant Now producing very bad food.

Most plates were good especially, octopus, prawns and ham, the anchovy plate combination was less appealing but nothing wrong with quality

We hadn't been before and were really looking forward to our last minute plans to go and luckily got a table.Service was good, knowledgable team and nice buzz around the place. We love spanish food, jamon is lush! We had croquettas, lamb, octopus, manchego, figs and the spinach. A right mix from different sections of the menu- a good recommendation from oyr server. The figs were excellent, lamb was really good. The octopus wasn't great. A bit bland overall. We asked for some lemon and it was slightly better.
It was really bright in the restaurant and was darker outside for the majority of our visit which was really off putting for me. I think I expected it to be much more intimate than what we experienced.
Sadly I don't think I'd rush back.

Wonderful place, food and friendly staff.
We booked and had a table in a slightly crowded area; without even being asked the staff very kindly relocated us to an equally bustling but less congested part of the restaurant. Great food and ambience.

The food was not that good. We asked one of the waitress to bring one tapas back to the kitchen as the smell of the fish was too strong, and the taste was not good. But they finally charged us. Not very commercial.

Came here for a catch up dinner with my mum. We wanted to capture the spirit of our city break in Spain a couple of years back. The atmosphere was lovely, and the staff were really accommodating, making us feel really welcome. The food was delicious, and we only ordered 3 dishes each, but were incredibly full after.

I've brought family and friends here before, and will continue to do so, always a crowd pleaser.

Excellent food, of course premium pricing as you would expect - next time we'll ask to sit in the front area near around the bar. Back section in front of open kitchen has little atmosphere. Fried goats cheese with honey was stand out dish....

Very limited for vegetarians and found the veggie dishes that did exist were quite bland. Also thought the sangria was very weak and watered down. £60 bill at the end felt steep for some vegetables I’m afraid.

I was disappointed in the food - I didn’t think it was that flavourful (particularly when compared to what I ate on a recent trip to Barcelona). I appreciate that it’s in soho but I also thought it very expensive.

An ok meal, pretty standard fare, food appeared super fast after ordering and some dishes brought that were for other diners. Not outstanding and have had better quality at other brindisa places. Ok for a decent tapas meal but there are better options in Soho, like Barafina but always put off by the queues there. Thought Brindisa was a bit overpriced as well

Food, wine & service good as always. We were in the back room which lacks a little spit & polish - floor could have done with a clean. Otherwise, my friends & accompanying guide dog were happy with the experience.
