This is a nice place to come with your friends. The tapas dishes are quite heavy on the fried batter but the portion sizes are generous and the jugs of sangria made the meal better. The seafood plates were nice – the prawns, in particular, were delicious as was the tortilla. However, I do think the food was a little overpriced for what it was but the service was super friendly and overall a really nice evening.


This ok Tapas. It is nothing to write home about but it's nice. I do think it could do with being a bit cheaper,I think they charge around a £1 over what they should,coupled up with service,it's not a cheap meal out. When in that price bracket I think you should be trying a little harder. The Cava Sangria,you should avoid,it really doesn't work. The Sangria itself is passable. The squid was nice and had a light batter.The bread basket was sparse and (again) not cheap. We went because it was by the theatre we were going to and it had seats outside and set off the street,which i really liked. It's not bad and bit overpriced. 


A lively, noisy (in a good way) restaurant in London, perfect for a dinner with friends. I happened to stop in this place (Soho branch) cause everywhere else was packed; the waiter was very lovely and found us a seat in less than ten minutes. I have to say, Spanish cuisine is within my favourite kinds of food so I'm quite demanding when it comes to the food itself; at Jamon Jamon, food is good but in my personal opinion it lacks of the "wow" factor. That's maybe cause I usually have my tapas at the Centro Galego de Londres in NW10 and I'm a bit spoiled. The only thing I didn't quite like were the albondigas, usually my favourites. Gambas were pretty good, as well as the Croquetas de Jamon - super yum!

I loved the staff and the customers, the atmosphere was happy and I want to try their Camden restaurant too cause I'm curious now :)


Good for relaxed sharing plates and sangria, and now probably famous from a cameo role from Amy Winehouse movie. We overloaded on seafood plates which were apparently great though not my cup of tea - my favourites were the classic spanish tortilla and chorizo tapas which were greasy and delicious. From Monday to Friday, go between 5-9pm for 2-for-1 Sangria specials.


I rarely have Spanish Tapas on a night out, but I was pleasantly surprised by this quirky little place in the heart of Camden. It’s a diverse part of the city in terms on cuisine. On a Monday night it was quiet but still maintained a nice, cosy atmosphere. Decorative touches such as the dark wooden furniture, candles, wild plants lacing the ceiling and a striking glass roof feature were quite romantic touches although simple. Think outdoor terrace holiday vibe. Of the six vegetarian dishes we ordered, I highly recommend the classic Patatas Bravas and Berenjenas Gratinadas (layered aubergine gratin) – both fantastic. The menu is very well structured and descriptive so you’ll be spoilt for choice! I stuck to iced water, but I do know the wine and cocktail list was extensive. Service was smooth and staff were very attentive, without rushing us to leave. We stayed for a few hours and could have easily stayed longer!

Tip: Go on a Monday between 5 – 11pm for 30% off your food bill!


We stumbled across this place by accident and I’m so glad we did! I usually dine at the well known tapas place La Tasca, so I had in mind what sort of tapas I liked but this was different and I liked it! We had six dishes between the two of us and that was just perfect.

Our dishes included the usual fare of Patatas Bravas and Tortilla Espanola alongside lesser known dishes such as Calabacin Rebozado (deep fried courgette slices), Croquetas de Cabrates (blue cheese croquettes) and Berenjenas Gratinadas (grilled aubergine in béchamel sauce). All was delicious; however the Queso con Miel (goat’s cheese with handmade crisps) was a little underwhelming. However, that didn’t take away from the enjoyment of the evening and by the end of our meal we were stuffed- which was devastating as I had room for the delicious sounding desserts!

I loved the décor too- quant wooden tables dotted jars of single white roses, low hanging lamps giving off a warm and ambient glow and an impressive selection of wild plants that off-set a stunning glass roof. The staff was friendly, the food came fast and hot and everyone seemed to be having a good time. I shall be back, but I’m definitely saving room for dessert!


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.

Excellent little tapas bar with a good choice of dishes and great quality.

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!
