If you are planning to pop in for only quick tapas and glass of vino, it will do the job. Don't expect anything special, definitely not the ambiance. Yet, you can count on simply friendly atmosphere. The tapas are quite predictable, menu contains just classic dishes and nothing more original. For me all tapas which hit our table were too... More

Went to DF's last night to meet some friends, as Richmond is about halfway between us. Having been out for an Italian meal the night before (Richmond seems to be awash with them) we decided to choose this one for something different. It wasn't that busy early on a Tuesday night, but got busier as the evening went on. We... More

The waiter recommended 4 or 5 Tapas dishes to share so we took his advice and it turned out just the right amount for us . Overall enjoyed the... More

A full menu of all of the typical Spanish dishes. Really well cooked, especially the squid. Service was excellent with a great family feel.

Great Resturant by Richmond station. Ideal for pre twickenham rugby gatherings. Maria and her team provide a fun atmosphere and value set match day menu. Service, food quality, quantity and value for money all first rate. Well worth a visit.

I had a very enjoyable evening meeting up with friends for dinner on a cold November Thursday evening at Don Fernando in Richmond. The restaurant was probably at 50% capacity, we were at no time during the evening rushed to place our orders or present the bill; the waiters were so friendly and helpful - we thought they were a...

A gem of a location that has been completely wasted. Patatas bravas white, not golden or crispy. Honey chicken skewers felt like a child put them together. Bland. Fried squid OK, nothing to write home about. Croquettes boring and mushy. Chorizo in red wine, shocking. Rather than flash fry the chorizo at high heat and put it out with some... More

Lunch for 4. We chose 10 plates between us and every one was authentic and delicious! A most enjoyable lunch in convivial surroundings for £82 / $100 / €91 (correct at 30 Oct 2016)

It's convenient as its centrally located, close to Richmond station. It feels small, almost cramped, as they've squeezed in as many tables as they can. The service is good, quick, friendly and very knowledgable. The house wine is only just passable, but there's limited options on wine by the glass. The food comes out quickly, but not all at the...

We eat at Don Fernandos early on a Saturday night and it was packed. For a tapas bar in London it offered a range of authentic Spanish tapas all of which we thought were reasonably priced. The service was prompt and efficient and is clearly geared to a quick turnover of customers. Tables were cleared , cleaned and reset in... More
