Cambio de Tercio
This restaurant offers modern Spanish cuisine in warm, chic surroundings. There's a bullfighting theme here, which is reflected in the name of the place - Cambio de Tercio is the shift from one phase of the fight to another. It's an appropriate name given that most of the clientele seem to make this their shifting point between sobriety and intoxication in the bars of Chelsea. Dishes such as roasted skate wings with green rice risotto and roast suckling pig are a cut above the usual standard. Other, more exotic, dishes include the “infusion of red fruits with yoghurt foam”. House wine is accompanied by a good selection of Spanish varieties. There's even a Spanish guitarist on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
This excellent Spanish restaurant is a hidden gem in London. I found out about it through a friend who lives in Yorkshire. They had visited it once before and everytime they visit London, they make a point of going to eat at Cambio de Tercio.
I went with two friends and even though it was slightly on the pricey side we had a fantastic time and enjoyed every minute of it. The food, wine menu and atmosphere was incredible.
I recommend Cambio de Tercio to anyone who reads this.
I had a group of 7 for a small wedding party. Out of the 7 people only 3 of the people were able to eat their meal. The waiter kept on offering complimentary beverages only to find out later that we were charged a high price for what he had offered us. The food was so awful that after dinner I went home and made myself something to eat. The mixed drinks were not better and the waiter forgot what my guest ordered. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
