Loved this place. Great staff though very busy so sometimes hard to get their attention. Delicious food - a caveat being that it was fairly high prices for small portions. Good atmosphere, we were here hours. The bill means that very sadly we won't come back as often as we would like!

Just wonderful - food, ambience, wine and the service headed up by Robert is impeccable. We have been here 3 times in the past 9 months and are always looking for an excuse to go back. I cannot recommend highly enough

Eat early in the corridor then you can be socially distanced. Food interesting and has specials. Lots of wine and sherry available so dive in with advice from the waiting staff.

Food and service excellent. We would have preferred the dishes from the nibbles section to have been served before the main tapas.

Set in Brixton village, The Tapas Room is a gem. Understated and unpretentious it sits well in a marketplace setting. The night we went we sat outside perched on high stools at the table. The market was fairly quiet but lively enough to add to the ambience. The food is delicious with fresh, quality ingredients, prepared exquisitely and packed full of flavours. The wine list has a good range of Spanish wines which compliment the food. We were made to feel very welcome and the service excellent. The food, including wine, was a bit more than I would normally spend but worth it. A very memorable dining experience.

Very fresh and imaginative food. It has been a long time since a proper new restaurant arrived in Brixton and this is one. A really welcome change from the noisier, fast food type places that are more common.

The food is really good but the portions are quite small for the price. I'd recommend it for a pre-dinner snack.

First time at this newly opened venue. Great atmosphere within Brixton village. Buzzing but not loud. Food arrived quickly and service was excellent all with a smile. Selection of dishes was modest but no bad thing as it makes choosing easier. All dishes that we had were really tasty esp the soda bread and herb oil. Definitely recommend.
