Squaremeal Review of Tendido Cero ?

Those looking for something less formal than Cambio de Tercio head over to this casual ‘tapas & bar’ sibling in droves. The food may be rather more traditional than its bullish neighbour across the road, with the emphasis on staples such as exclusive jamón de bellota (£22 a plate), tortilla and chorizo in cider – although the kitchen also knocks out a few surprise packages in the form of tuna tartare with avocado mayonnaise, quails marinated in sherry vinegar, ‘new-style’ patatas bravas and Iberian spare ribs with ‘mojo canario’. Also look for the ‘solomillo de buey’ (fillet of beef ‘carpaccio-tataki’) and the lamb casserole with roasted almonds. The Cambio group has a reputation for sherry, and Tendido’s selection is guaranteed to please aficionados and new converts alike. The whole package regularly wins plaudits, and the place “looks in fine fettle”.

I've been to Tendido Cero maybe a dozen times in the past, in fact it had become my default restaurant for entertaining American relatives visiting London. In the past we've always enjoyed our visit and enjoyed the food. This time, it all went wrong, so drastically wrong that I won't be going there again. I needed to book a late lunch as my young American cousin and her friend were going to be arriving quite late. So I checked the Tendido Cero online booking, and booked a table for 4 for 2.30, the...

A more relaxed setting than the formal sister rastaurant just across the road, this place offers some very good tapas choices accompanied by a surprisingly varied wine offering (obviously focused on spain). A great place to go out for a high-qulity but relaxed tapas meal. Slight lt down for dinner is their 2 setting policy which means you normally have to go either early or late unless they're not full

Food is good and creative. Service is hot and cold. There is frequently an attitude when you walk in the door and I haven't been able to tell if it's a language barrier. Don't bother trying to reserve a table online. The restaurant doesn't bother to call you back if the place is full for the time you requested, despite what the website says. Here's a hint Tendido Cero: customers don't have telepathy. Get with the times and figure out how to offer true online bookings.

This is a brief note to let you know of our experience last night was not as expected. I am regular client at Cambio de Tercio and I have no complaints related to food quality or service, on the contrary ! whereas Tendido Cero’s food wise left a lot to be desired. Service good 10/10. We ordered Jamon de Jabugo Pata negra Pan Tomaca Boquerones Pimietos de piquillo rellenos con rabo de toro Jamon Iberico Tortilla Española Gulas Rollos de camaron con mermelada Crema Catalana Vino Total paid £ 163.00...

We as a party of 8 women who went to Tendido Cero to celebrate a girlfriend moving from London. We enjoyed our meal but I have never been more shocked when, just after our teas and coffees were served and before we had a chance to drink them, the waiters suddenly arrived with our coats obviously insisting we left. If the restaurant had been filled with people at the bar waiting for tables I would have understood but there were several empty tables and no one waiting. Why this restaurant felt justified...

I went to Tendido Cero on a recommendation from a friend at the Instituto Cervantes and can happily say that it is easily one of the best tapas restaurants I have been to in London…and I'm working my way through a few! We tried the sobrasada pastries – which you don't often find and which were delicious. Tendido Cero has a ‘new’ take on patatas bravas too – rather than giving you chunks of fried potato in salsa rosa or aioli, they serve them cut into small cylinders, scooped out and filled with...

One of the most authentic and welcoming tapas bars in London thanks to Abel Lusa and his team. Always welcomed and as a result this has become my neighbourhood favourite. The food is more than traditional Spanish comfort food – it's great quality, good clean flavours and no compromises.
