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.

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.

I have been to Brindisa before several times. It has definitely gone down in terms of quality. We had a “fine” meal. Nothing awful but also nothing outstanding at all. Just average tapas really (whereas previously I would have said Brindisa did v good tapas but now definitely much more average). We also shared a bottle of house Cava and both had insanely bad headaches the following day which is strange as that was all we drank (eg we weren’t “hungover” but the Cava must just be a reasonably poor quality one or something??

Service was great and there was a nice buzz in the restaurant. Food was good although portions seemed a little small compared to other tapas restaurants. And the bill felt expensive for what we had. But our waiter was excellent so that made up for it.

The first thing we were told when we were seated was that the table was required back 1hr 45 minutes later - a message repeated to us throughout the meal. We had expected to leave about 7:15pm rather than 7:00pm. This was a surprise and disappointing because that extra 15 minutes at the end of the meal can make a difference between rounding things off nicely and being unceremoniously exited to the street. This information was included in the booking confirmation but not as prominently as the staff suggested. There needs to be six of you to secure a 2 hour table, which is a bit cynical.
This was my favourite Brindisa, but there has been a change of staff - less charming, less authentic and less able to successfully manage guest relations.
The food is ok - ham croquettes and huevos rotos the only really successful dishes - and the drinks list prices seem inflated.
I would recommend Barrafina, Camino or Iberica as good options ahead of Brindisa.

We were there on a Sunday so it was relatively quiet. Some tapas were excellent (croquetas, lamb with salsa, peach with anchovy) -others mediocre & portions small. The wine was very disappointing- at nearly £40/ bottle for a young wine -way overpriced
