CAMINO has been created as a place to enjoy the life, vigour and tastes of Spain. Come in for breakfast (coffee, churros and a flick through El Pais) a long lunch, an indulgent graze on cava and raciones or a seriously good wine with fresh meat and fish from the charcoal grill, every experience will be real and infectious.

Camino London Reviews


Trusty spaniard - I’ve been here twice now. Once for drinks and once for dinner, although I haven’t had tapas. If you sit in the restaurant you order of a different menu, so if you want tapas stick to the more informal bar area (by Joel's account it looks like it's good as well).

The seafood options are plenty and according to my fish-eating friends plenty good aswell. Vegetarians have very little choice in the restaurant area, but the option is usually well thought out – the tapas looks alright though.

It’s a nice bustling restaurant and I have nothing horrible to say about this place – service good and friendly, prices reasonable, but there is nothing that is super-special or super-memorable.

Great in every respect! - My friend and I ate at Camino last night and I found it great in every respect: food, décor, wine, value, location and crowd. My general impression of Tapas in London is they are a clever way for pubs/bars to over charge for small portions of uninspired food. Camino delivers exactly the opposite: inspired Spanish for great value. We had a bottle of wine and shared 4 plates and were out for £36.

For food we had piquillo peppers stuffed with crab, chorizo, Serrano ham (was too cheap to spring for the Iberico) and some sort of onion, potato & huevos dish, all for like £4.50 each which was enough for two rather full size guys who aren’t afraid to eat. This is cheaper than most pubs trying to do the Tapas thing and is as good as anything I’ve had outside of Spain (Moro included).

The space is big, cool and comfortable, in a converted industrial building of some sort, that has been very well redeveloped as part of the broader improvements to King’s Cross. For the smokers, and in spring/summer, there is big, fairly wide open outdoor space that’s closed off from the noise/bustle of the area, and with plenty of furniture for sitting or resting a drink.

The wine list is good value and features plenty of off the beaten track, and better, options from Priorat, Ribera del Duero and Toro. We had an Old Vine Garnacha for £16.50, not sure where it was from, but was great and felt like a total deal.

Tip: it’s about 3 minute walk from St Pancras station so you can start things off at the worlds longest Champagne bar.
