Food -some hot dishes were served cold , but the staff refused to accept this and argued with the customers. The venue was very noisy.
Very disappointing experience.

As good as usual, butnoticed the smaller portions with the charcuterie. Less of it and paper thin, which is a shame

I have been here twice before and been quite impressed but on this occasion I was embarrassed about having suggested it to my friend. She spends a lot of time in Spain and was less than impressed with the platter and the vinegar. Bread (which was good) came with no oil, vinegar nor butter until we asked and then the vinegar was extremely sharp and unpleasant. We decided to have the sharing platter for £19 but were surprised and disappointed to see it, comparing with other restaurants. Individual tapas are obviously a better bet and more enjoyable.

It was an early evening start for us at Casa Brindisi and so it was quiet and there were very few customers. Service was excellent throughout the meal, and the food was generally good. Twice however, the order we placed was not matched by what was delivered. On both times, the waitress took it back to the kitchen and it was replaced with what we asked for. In both instances it was not extremely important but when you say no chillies that is what you want- and then when asked how you like your lamb chops and they arrive cooked differently, not good enough. However, the menu was wide ranging, we enjoyed a good carafe of wine and would recommend Casa Brindisa to friends.

Hi Duncan, I'm glad you enjoyed your experience on the whole, however I can only apologise that you were let down on your orders. As you say, this is not good enough, and we pride ourselves on our service at Brindisa. I have passed your feedback onto the team to see if we can look into it further. I'm grateful for your positivity, and your feedback is incredibly helpful, so thank you. I hope we will see you again soon and that this time you will have an even better experience.

We love it though it’s very noisy. Really didn’t like the menus which were large sheets of white paper being left on the tables to be used as table mats. When we asked for them to be removed we were told that we might need them to order more food.

I would describe Casa Brindisa as a 'solid Tapas bar', good enough for an evening out but not exceptional and quite 'fully priced' (especially reasonable quality wines). No doubt we will return when we are in or close to South Kensington.

We had a big group of 8 and were seated with plenty of room in a booth.
Special mention to our lovely waiter who was so patient with our party and all our dietary requirements but especially for one of our pregnant party who was concerned about eating some meat item. Waiter was just so kind and helpful in that situation.
He was attentive and the service in general was very responsive and friendly. Would definitely go again. It's a little pricy but we did all leave full and satisfied.

This is a great place I have been a few times, but this time the desert was meant to be a chocolate sauce and white chocolate mouse but it was more like coco pops and a blob of cream so that was disappointing, plus the service was on the slow side.
