Square Meal Review of Cambio de Tercio ?

Restaurateur Abel Lusa’s Old Brompton Road site is far from your average tapas joint. One of four restaurants he owns in these parts (plus a gin and tonic bar), Cambio sets its culinary sights high, producing a roster of inventive, modern Spanish dishes against a setting of bright yellow walls, white tablecloths and street-opening concertina doors. Ceviche of scallops comes flavoured with fino sherry and accompanied by pea sprouts and a parsnip salad, while a Malaga-style cold almond soup with smoked eel, grapes and nougat ice cream is a confidently modern creation. Not everything is as avant-garde; diners after a slightly more ‘auténtico’ experience can opt for the likes of fried squid with lime and alioli, or ham croquettes – although some readers have bemoaned a lack of consistency from the kitchen. The expertly picked list of regional wines and sherries is a real pleasure.
