Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We popped in for a quick drink after a walk in the park and the menu looked so nice that we booked a table for dinner. We weren't disappointed! The staff are lovely and were happy to give a steer on how many dishes to...order (we've been encouraged to over-order by other tapas places). Every dish was delicious and beautifully prepared, especially the meatballs! Bakewell tart for pudding rounded the meal off perfectly - it was amazing. Very reasonably priced - highly recommended whenever you're in Richmond.More

This is a great little bar and the tapas is excellent. Very friendly staff. Lovely wine and cask ale which my husband said was excellent. I would recommend booking well worth a visit or two.

We arrived just before 10pm after going to the cinema and were welcomed despite the time. The atmosphere is relaxed and stylish with helpful staff. We enjoyed delicious tapas and excellent wine and gin. Highly recommended!

We had a selection of lots of the tapas dishes of the main menu ( which had lots of choice) & tried both specials - all dishes were excellent- really tasty & cooked perfectly. We also couldn't resist the Bakewell tart to finish- which again...was delicious, paired with some lovely port. Service was excellent - all staff were welcoming, attentive & friendly & the ambience was warm & intimate. Thoroughly recommend!More

Visited on a Saturday evening for tapas. High quality service and food. Small place with a lively atmosphere. All the dishes we had were excellent and there was a good choice of beer and wine. Would highly recommend.

Visited Number 29 whilst on a break in Richmond with our friends last weekend. We all agreed it was wonderful choice that we made. All the staff made us very welcome even though we arrived late due to a car breakdown. The restaurant is small...which adds to the atmosphere. We ordered a sharing board as a starter and it was more than enough for four of us. We continued with four different tapas and enjoyed all of them. The prices for both food and drink are very reasonable for the quality you get. Number29 is a must if staying or near Richmond. We will definitely return when we are in the area.More

Small bistro- recommend booking. Great beer and wine. Small plates with vegetarian options. Food is good but, as you’d expect, some dishes better than others. Exceptionally friendly and efficient staff. Great evening to be had.

Glad we booked a table to make sure we got seated as it became quite busy during our visit. There is a great variety of options which were all excellent other than the greek salad which could have been better. Service was spot on. An...apology from us. We each assumed that one of us had left a tip but didn't realise that we hadn't until next day. Sorry ladies.More

What a fantastic little Eatery and bar, we popped for a drink and ended up booking a table as the menu looked great and the smell was amazing. It didn’t disappoint, highly recommend eating here.

We visited #29 twice whilst recently visiting Richmond. The first time for tapas which was tasty, well presented and served in a warm and friendly manner. The second time was just for a drink where we enjoyed a couple of their craft beers. Craft beer...seems to be something that seems to be lacking on the whole in Richmond so we very much enjoyed this visit too.More

A friend booked a tapas meal for us, saying it was a small place but good. She couldn’t have been more on point. It’s small, comfortable and personal and more importantly, delicious!!! We were welcomed really nicely and placed at the window bar until our...booked time came around. The staff looked after us really well and we were given our table. There are specials available which change regularly apparently. I went for four dishes; haggis in a creamy white wine sauce; meatballs in red pepper sauce; prawns in a spicey garlic sauce; and chorizo with sauce I’ve forgotten. I can easily say this was one of the most tasty meals I’ve had for a long time. I decided to also have a bread selection to soak up the gorgeous sauces. Much needed!! Don’t waste the sauces!!More
