Great choice of alcohols, not great food, nice ambience. It'sa nice venue to have a cocktail, but I would go elsewhere for dinner.

Great Cuban place at the Stables Market - about a 7 minute walk from Camden Town tube station. There's often live music or salsa dancing (classes or parties) going on. This is great when you come for a drink (cocktails are great!) - but if you want to have a conversation over dinner, take a table upstairs! The restaurant is really spacious (rare for London - where in most places tables are only 30 cms apart!) and looks authentic! The tapas (especially the quesadillas), paella creole and sangria are delicious. Feel like sampling different dishes? I highly recommend the 9 tapas and sangria offer! Only slight minus is that you may have to waive (quite a bit) to get staff's attention - once you have it, they are very friendly!
Do not eat at the upstairs restaurant! A friend booked her leaving meal for the restaurant upstairs, the restaurant was only serving one other table upstairs but took an hour and 20minutes for us to get our food after ordering, they forgot 2 peoples orders and when they realised their mistake they didn't say anything to us just kept re-assuring us the food was coming in a minute. After everyone in the group had finished eating and the 2 remaining meals were still missing an hour and 45minutes after ordering we cancelled the last 2 dishes. We had to demand an explanation and an apology, none was offered voluntary but they did offer the people who's meals hadn't arrived a free drink each but that hardly made up for not eating. A severe lack of customer service and responsibility. After the meal I looked at reviews on trip advisor all of which said to avoid the place at all costs. Just terrible.
