Summary

Acres of pavement seating are the most eye-catching feature of this “buzzing” operation (run by the well-known Spanish food importers), which sits on the ant-trail between South Kensington tube station and the museums (go on a sunny day). It’s “reliably enjoyable” for a “cheap ’n’ cheerful” meal as the dishes are reliably good, but it’s mostly chosen for its convenience rather than its foodie potential.

Summary

From the Spanish food importer of the same name, this Brindisa operation has a very attractive location – near South Kensington tube, with a big outside terrace – “go on a summer’s day and watch the world go by”. The press of tourists means it doesn’t have to try as hard as it might, but its tapas-and-more offering is consistently rated a good “cheap ’n’ cheerful” choice.

Summary

For foodies, the Brindisa name casts a halo around this South Kensington café (with large outside terrace) and they salute its “high-quality fresh tapas”. A more realistic view perhaps is that the food here is “not earth-shattering, but fine”“ideal before/after a visit to the Royal Albert Hall or one of the museums on Exhibition Road”.

Summary

“Convenient for the museums”, this outpost of the Brindisa group near South Kensington station offers a menu of Spanish small plates, wines and sherries familiar from the Borough Market original, but as a tapas bar it feels a bit “formulaic”, and its marks lag behind accordingly.

"Allow your server to recommend what's good on the menu today, but just make sure you order the Lamb chops and Salsa verde and the grilled Galician octopus, as both were the stand out stars of our meal."

Harden's says...

Casa Brindisa SW7

Brilliantly handily-situated within one minute of South Kensington tube, the latest - and they say last - offshoot of Brindisa, the Borough food-importers' tapas bar; it offers conventional light Spanish dishes of a high quality, in a comfortable but unpretentious setting.
