The service was extremely slow, and when we would ask for drinks or where our food was, our waiter had such an attitude. It became very uncomfortable to ask for anything, even for huevos rancheros which took an hour and a half - it does not take that long for egg and potatoes! It would be fine if the waiter was patient and apologised on the kitchen’s behalf, but instead he was very snappy with us. The food was great but I would not go back to that location.

The food at Tapas Brindisa Soho was lovely as expected. I do not understand how we why the restaurant takes bookings at 22.45, if they are going to shut at 23.30 and kick all customers out. Poor form and a sign of greediness in my view. The restaurant should stop taking booking an hour before closure

The meal was lovely, but they allowed a group of drunk and rude men to stand directly behind us whilst they waited for a table. They elbowed my friend in the head and were generally rude and obnoxious. I don't understand why they allowed them to stand direxly behind us, there was no space between them and our table.

I've been to Brindisa in Borough many times, but wanted somewhere central to introduce my in laws to Spanish cuisine (somehow they'd never had it).
We plumped for Brindisa and had a thoroughly delightful Sunday afternoon there, improved only marginally by starting with a bottle of Cava for my wife's birthday celebrations.
Everything we had – and we had most of the starters and many of the mains between us – was exquisite. For me, the highlights were the croquetas, the pulpo which was stunning and the huevos rotos con sobrasada.
I can also highly recommend the El Bonhomme as an accompaniment shared by two of us and the white rioja by the others.
It was a memorable – and soon to be repeated – meal.

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

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!

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.
