What a precious find! My friend and I chanced upon this restaurant as we were walking around Soho looking for a place to grab dinner last weekend. Boy, are we glad to have found this place! The food tasted authentic, the drinks were delicious, and I liked its rustic decor and ambiance. 


Between my friend and I, we shared the following tapas dishes:


1. Croquetas de Jamon - A classic Spanish dish of deep-fried, battered ham and cheese balls. These were glorious, as they were the perfect size, filled with cheesy goodness, and had sizeable pieces of ham in them. It also came with this lovely tomato dipping sauce, which added an extra touch to the dish. 


2. Pan con tomate - A great way to start off the meal! These slices of bread were toasted to perfection, drizzled in delicious olive oil, and came with the freshest tomato sauce on the side. Everything about this was amazing!


3. Gambas al ajillo - One of my favourite Spanish dishes, this plate of garlic and chili prawns came out literally sizzling! The olive oil was bubbling away and there was a decent amount of prawns. It went so well with the bread we ordered, to soak up that quality olive oil!


4. Patatas Bravas - Another classic and must-have at Spanish tapas! However, I thought this was quite average. The potatoes weren't as crunchy/crispy as I would have liked and there wasn't any aioli sauce, only the tomato sauce on top. 


We also had a jug of Sangria, which really did come in the largest jug! This was great because it's definitely value for money but we did find that it was a little too sweet. It took us a while to even get through the first glass. Definitely a restaurant I'll be coming back to again, as I thought the food was great and we didn't have to wait for a table nor long for the food to arrive after we arrived - and on a Saturday evening in Soho! We did see many people ordering the Paella, which is what I'll be trying next time I come!

Central location for kinda average tapas and good service. Prices are also good, but a few things here are truly good - I can vouch for the jamon croquetas and the dates wrapped in bacon (the best thing I had all night). All the rest was a bit forgetful (or a bit sad), although they do offer a pretty decent house sangria to help out!

One of the few central London venues that you can use a Tastecard all week, which is great, as I wouldn't have wanted to pay full price. 


Jamon Jamon is like the tapas you get in a tourist restaurant in Benidorm. The basics are there - patatas bravas, chorizo, frittata, etc - but the quality isn't. It's all very edible and non-offensive, but if an authentic tapas experience is what you are looking for, this isn't it. Expect plastic table mats, speedy food delivery and staff that have a knack of not looking at you when it's time to pay the bill. 


The best thing is the white cava sangria, which is totally delicious and lovely for a sunny evening. It just wasn't strong enough to make me feel like I was actually in Spain though, which is a shame!

Me and my brother have a saying about Tapas but I'm not sure if it's swearing but I will attempt to write it anyway. To review Tapas you just decide if it's Tapas or Crapas

I'm afraid this was pretty average so it was Crapas.

I was going to an afternoon event in soho and thought I'd quite fancy some Tapas with a friend so we opted for here.

We told the waitress we only had an hour and she said not to worry it's really quick. Literally it's so quick I think it's just warmed up and served!

The rice was like a packet of uncle Bens!

Potatas Bravas was ok but the tomato tasted more like ketchup, goats cheese with crisps was rather random but nice. Chorizo was ok but I've had better and then finally we had meatballs which tasted like they were served in a mixture of gravy and curry.

On the positive my sangria was lovely and the staff friendly. I just didn't rate the food and the flavours, it felt so rushed and no real wow taste. I'd only go here again if I was in a hurry. I have taken a nice selection of pictures for you!

Lovely restaurant with some absolutely amazing tapas. I would definitely recommend the polpo and the delicious sangria! (Not too strong so you can actually share a jug with 1-2 friends). Most of the staff is adorable à can give you some great food advices so don't hesitate to ask them!

Lovely (with tastecard). As the average dish is about £6, for 2 people, this would be quite expensive when you consider how much you get, and the fact you need about 6 dishes. But with a tastecard, it was 2-4-1, so we bought 3, and got the cheapest 3 free. The food was delicious, especially the bacon wrapped dates with almonds. The staff were also very friendly.


Horrendous paella, frozen micro prawns, overcooked rice-almost a puree-, carrots and garlic (which is not coming in a traditional Spanish recipe...)very disappointed...I went there trying to find the flavours of my country and what I found with horror is a cheap imitation to sell to foreigners..


Came with a friend for tapas and bagged a great spot outside. We were left to ourselves just the right amount, not being pestered or felt like we were rushed, but just able to enjoy our evening in the sun. The food was delicious, in true tapas style everything was oily, fried, cheesy and not really on the healthy side, but so good. The Prawns were great and all the meat was perfectly cooked. Sangria was spot on too!



I had a wonderful time here, I think the best part for me was listening to a Spanish version of "Killing Me Softly" playing in the background! But let's talk food here, the seafood paella was really authentic - my Spanish friend has made this for me many a time and can say it was pretty damn close to being just as delish. It's tucked away too so it's quaint and quiet with some amazingly friendly staff. Oh and the starters were nom nom nom!

Amazing paella and such friendly service, definitely a new favourite. Special mention for the sangria they make, it is so good, lots of cherry vibes going on, well done guys!

Visited with a large group yesterday, and we were thoroughly looked after by the staff from start to finish. 


The food was very satisfying - huge Paellas full of flavour, sizzling garlic prawns, and the blue cheese croquettes were particularly tasty. Wash it all down with a fruity jug of sangria, and it's the perfect lunch.


30% off between 12 and 5, too - Bonus!




After a great evening here with exsessive amounts of tapas and sangria, I would most definately visit again. Perfect for a chilled evening with friends and staff couldn't be more helpful. The 2 for 1 on jugs of sangria was also very much welcomed!

Amazing paella, tapas & sangria! Warm friendly staff, who couldn't have been any more helpful, & made us feel so welcome. I would highly recommend Jamon Jamon if you get the chance to go there!


Had a meal for 30+ of us here on a Saturday night. Before we got there, Silvina helped us tailor the set menu to suit our guests at no extra cost. The staff were great, very attentive and helpful in dealing with extra unexpected guests arriving late with a minimum of fuss and with good humour. The food was freshly prepared and tasty and great value. I've also visited in a small group and the service and food was similarly brilliant. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
