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.

I made a mistake on my booking but the waitress was very accommodating and understanding. Food was very tasty, with the "broken eggs" being one of the highlights for any egg lovers.

Good quality tapas and reasonably priced (for Soho) wine list. Friendly service. Quiet on a rainy day.

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.

Very busy, please reserve as many people walk in and have to wait or leave. Great staff, immediately helpful when you arrive. It is a small, intimate restaurant so perfect for date night, small groups etc. Highly recommend the meat platter and the sangria! Great tasting spanish food, definitely going back!

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!

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.
