Tierra Brindisa

Tierra Brindisa

Spanish | Soho, Fitzrovia, Covent Garden

It began as a deli in Exmouth Market, progressed to a tapas bar in Borough Market, and now Brindisa has taken its impeccably sourced Spanish fare to become a fully-fledged restauraunt just off Berwick Street Market - is there a theme here?

"A few weeks ago, after my Alice in Wonderland experience at El Bulli, I craved simplicity. I was taken by a friend to a top place in Barcelona for tapas. It was, as you would expect, very good. But better than Tierra Brindisa? No, not particularly. And it was certainly more expensive. Take that as a recommendation." READ REVIEW

"We can readily understand why the local Soho media operatives have fallen on the place; it’s easy-going yet looks smart. And it feels like it has commitment to a concept. Now all they have to do is fully carry it off." READ REVIEW

"Things were remedied by a rich, amber-hued rare palo cortado sherry, its buttery sweetness and hints of coffee and almonds a fitting partner for a juicy pincho moruno (essentially a kebab) of rare Ibérico pork fillet; likewise for flavoursome tender lamb cutlets." READ REVIEW

"This is Tapas Brindisa for grown-ups, where you can reserve a table, sit down and relax, match interesting food with interesting wines, hear yourself talk, and see what a good chef can do with the some of the best produce from Spain." READ REVIEW

"I’d go back: it’s early days, and it will improve, undoubtedly, and it holds some good memories for me. And good memories are all a restaurant needs to leave you with for you to want to return." READ REVIEW

"Some of my favourite London restaurants are Spanish, but each has its downside: El Faro is miles away from anything (unless you're in Docklands); Barrafina is always queued out; Dehesa's tables are wildly uncomfortable unless it's sunny enough to sit outside. Tierra Brindisa suffers from none of these shortcomings and for that I love it." READ REVIEW
