Spanish
Camino was born with the opening of King’s Cross in 2007. Capturing the real essence of Spain was always the aim, and with the addition of Bar Pepito opening opposite in 2010 (London’s very first sherry bar) we came a King’s Cross institution.

Our lively bar and restaurant sprawls around a hidden courtyard, coming alive in the Summer, full of people enjoying a frosted mug of Spanish cerveza, a glass of sangria or a sherry from Pepito. With outdoor heaters and plenty of seating, it’s often busy on even the coldest of evenings.

We’re open everyday for lunch, dinner and everything in between. Join us for our Spanish breakfast during the week, or our popular Happy Hour at the weekend. The bar at Camino is always buzzing, with DJs on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays playing the best Latin, house and party sounds until late. Always free entry!

Lovely tapas, great selection, well cooked and really yummy. Service wasn’t great, there were a number of errors and we waited ages for one dish. Ambiance wasn’t great either, and chairs were quite uncomfortable.
May visit again, but probably won’t be my first choice.

service a bit slow and everything served at once which, on small table, was fussy - otherwise fine. No view, no waterside - be careful that you are booking the branch you want.

We were a group of 6 and sat outside. Had a great evening - staff very attentive and food fabulous as always. We were able to stay longer than out 2 hr time slot which made for a lovely relaxed dinner with family we hadn't seen for some time.

We booked through Open Table, hoping for a nice dinner with some music to enjoy the evening  we never been there before purely  based on reviews from open table and sounded promising turned out rather dissappointing.

We were 20 minutes late due to last minute taxi cancellation and took the train and also confirmed it via text message to the restaurant as I received a  reminder of arrival due in 30 minutes so they were aware.

When we arrived there we we were seated right by the enterance not in the middle of the restaurant and there were two groups right by around with lots of noise.

I had even mentioned in the booking it was a special occasion! The maitre d should have been more considerate to place us at a better table I am not happy with this.

We could hardly hear each other  the sound system does not equalise the noise around that's not right.

The food was OK, liked the squid, paella was OK but underneath slightly burned. 

Our server was very pleasant.

Food was really good. A bit slow on service. Kept getting asked if we’d like to order anything else as they were shutting the kitchen early. This is the second time we have been. The first time was much better a year previously.

Food was more than ok, although I would have liked to taste a bit of jamón in the croquetas. The service was ok and not too intrusive. The lighting In the restaurant though was overly dim, I don't think there was any need for it to be that dark! But overall the experience was good and I would eat there again.

Great Service from our waiter and the food was delicious and good portions for the price.
The olives were super sour though but i love those small jalapenos, you dont know what hits you hot and what not coming!

Thank you

Amazing food and wine and service and a lovely atmosphere but initially when we arrived for drinks, service was a little bit slow and disjointed as we had been seated elsewhere away from the main restaurant and lacking staff but otherwise a really lovely experience and all the tapas was so tasty! Great helpful waiter at our table

A delicious mid week lunch - not many diners so we had very attentive service. £20 off the bill (continuing the 'eat out to help out' scheme) was an unexpected but pleasant surprise.

Food was lovely - I always see Camino as being a bit 'chainy' but I would have been happy to be served tapas that tasted as good as these if I was actually in Spain. Friendly service. Sweet sherry to go with the indulgent black coconut icecream dessert, only £4 a glass - which is really good value.

We arrived earlier then our table booking and were able to have socially distanced drinks in the courtyard. Our first drinks we had to order at the bar though, however this was queues out nicely approaching the bar. All staff were wearing masks.

Once outside, we had a fantastic waiter Lucas who kept checking on us and offering us more drinks as a table service. He was really friendly & his customer service was excellent and he helped us to choose the right wine & offered us tastings.

The restaurant hadn’t updated their details to the fact I had changed the booking time on the app, but they were calling within 30mins of the original time to check & had no problems when I said we had put the dining time back to a later start.

The waitress inside was lovely & took our order as soon as we were ready and the food was amazing when it came out. We were conscious of the 2 hour dining time but there was no pressure or rush and we were able to sit for longer then was booked.

Overall a lovely place & I would definitely go again.

Outstanding food! The restaurant was very busy and I sensed from the start they were busier than they expected to be. Service was a little slow initially however the team rallied around and worked very hard to get on top of the volume of orders. We had a great evening and will definitely be back. Well done to the whole team both front of house and kitchen!

Delicious food. We had the special 'Eat out to help out' platters which we thought were great value, and we still just had room for desserts. We also had a very good bottle of red wine, which was reasonably priced, on the advice of our server.
