Weekend evenings at Jamón Jamón are boisterous affairs: tables are often pushed together to make room for birthday parties, and the sound of laughter can eclipse quiet conversation, which is deeply Spanish if not very conducive to a romantic meal for two. Nor is the interior exactly eye-catching – just ‘Jamón Jamón’ cast in metal and protruding from the otherwise bare walls at regular intervals – but the tapas, although unimaginative, are deftly executed. Squid in tomato sauce featured generous chunks of tender seafood, a plate of fried whitebait was fresh and enormous, and there was a marked flair even to standards such as patatas bravas and sliced chorizo, the rich meat of the latter matched with roasted red peppers and a red wine sauce. A deserving local favourite.

Belsize Parkians' version of fast food. A bit more classier, like. Smooth service, cosy indoor or spacious outdoor seating, and cheap delicious Spanish food. £20 for dinner for two, with drinks. Open til' midnight! Also the best mixed olive appetiser dishes in all of Camden Town. Well, hard to say, because there are about ten other tapas places that also serve olives, but Jamon Jamon might just pip the competition.

Great tasting Spanish food in some very nice surroundings.


Simple but very tasty tapas - that's Jamon Jamon! Their cocktails, mojitos in particular, are also superb! The staff (mostly Spanish as you would expect) are super friendly. The place is quite small and when it gets busy you will have to speak up as it can get a bit loud. If you want to be sure of a table - book in advance. I've also been able to get a table without booking - not on weekends though. Aside from their (grocery store brand 'ready to put in the oven') breads (as a starter or side dish) all tapas are delicious!
