Overpriced and underwhelming...I went with a bunch of friends last week as we were drinking, hadn't eaten dinner and time was pushing on. We were going to find a pub but they had stopped serving so Camino's 4 star rating pulled us in. The glowing green bottles of Alhambra reserva were a welcome site but other than that there was little to shout about. You can order from the tapas menu or from the main dishes. Tapas are between £4-8 and mains are £12-20. We ordered chorizo, pan c/ tomato, baby squid, croquetas and iberian pork shoulder. The food does not look good in this place. The chorizo was quite nice because it was salty but that was it. Salty. Baby squid were not crispy enough and not fresh enough. The tomato bread was really bad. It was like eating a baguette from the bottom of a cool box were an ice bag split. You are meant to use stale or toasted bread and rub the tomato over it. Basically it was not authentic tapas which is very easy to make and should cost 1-3 euros! Spanish food is simple in order to let a few ingredients shine and so that 3 or 4 plates make a meal. That would cost 25 quid here! If you want tapas go to el parador (its similar prices but worlds apart in quality) if you want to drink, go somewhere cooler.


Went to this place for lunch with colleagues- food was great! Everyone was happy with their orders. Nice decor and ambiance. Strongly strongly recommend!


I was here for lunch 2 weeks ago and (thankfully) it's as fantastic as the Kings Cross Camino. My 2 lunch buddies had never been to a Spanish restaurant before (yes I know) and had no idea what to order. I just asked our very pleasant waiter to bring us his favourite 9 dishes, all meat bar 1 patatas braves. And what a good decision that was. Fabulous. The food was reasonably priced, it's not cheap but you do get more than what you pay for. They are also very tolerant of boisterous behaviour - 7 pints at lunch usually ends up being a noisy affair. In my defence it was a Friday.
