Please note, the review below relates to a visit to Tramontana Brindisa, this venue's previous name. Time Out Eating & Drinking editors, October 2016.
On the site that was once the vegan raw food restaurant Saf, the Spanish restaurant group Brindisa have opened this fourth branch. Cured meats and strings of onions hanging above the counter frames the stainless steel open kitchen. As well as the usual selection of cured meats, cheeses, tortillas and patatas bravas, the menu features Valencian rice stews and bakes packed with lobster, pork ribs and chorizo, or wild mushrooms (for two or more), displayed invitingly along the counter in large pans. Our bacalao rebozado saw slices of salt cod – moist and not too salty – deep-fried in a light batter attractively presented with a dab of aioli, a pinch of paprika and a scattering of mixed baby leaves. Dessert proved interesting with an Ibizan curd cheese tart flavoured with mint and star anise – a surprisingly successful, if unusual combination.
Our menu consists of all the traditional fare; piles of flame-licked calçots ready to be stripped and dipped into romesco sauce and platters full of barbecued meats and seasonal vegetables.
It involves gathering your friends, strapping on a bib, rolling up your sleeves and getting messy… Pre-book online via our website (weekends in Feb and March, noon–5pm, £35pp).
Inspired by our travels from Cádiz to Catalonia, Tapas Brindisa Shoreditch is all about Mediterranean coastal dining.
From our Barcelona styled curved bar, watch the bustle of our open kitchen, vermouth in hand, or venture out to our heated courtyard to enjoy one of our rice dishes.
Open until late, enjoy a late dinner or some drinks with your friends!

I was looking forward to dining here as I really enjoyed a meal at Brindisa by Borough Market - unfortunately this restaurant is nothing like what I expected. The patata bravas sauce was bland except for what tasted like mayonnaise. All the dishes were poor with the exception of the gambas al ajillo which was well cooked (hence one star!). To top it all off, the tonic in my g&t was flat and when I asked for another I was given another flat one! Total rip off.
A joke a shadow of what a tapas bar should be, it is a tourist trap, over priced and the food and wine are dreadful.
Not good. I grew up in spain, so I know a little about tapas. The menu here is very boring. where are the southern classics? No almejas, no Pil-Pil, no Calamari, and many more absentees. Portions are also tiny and its VERY expensive. I've given it the benefit of the doubt and been 3 times. Each time i have left disappointed, everything could be so much better
