The first restaurant at 38 Parkway was opened in the 1950s , known as George and Nicky’s. In 2001, the restaurant changed hands and building work began to convert the premises and make them suitable for a tapas bar.The word Jamon, pronounced “yamon”, means ham in Spanish, and if there is one thing the Spanish are crazy about, it is good Jamon. In Spain, Jamons are traditionally made in local family farmhouses.

Outstanding, as ever. Definitely among the best restaurants in Camden, and my favourite Spanish restaurant in London.

We were the only diners in the restaurant on a Tuesday lunchtime - so didn't make for an amazing ambience.
Service was excellent. Menu is expensive considering it is tapas, but it arrived quickly.
Food was OK but nothing exceptional.
£60 for 2 with a bottle of beer and a glass of wine (which was hilariously £8)

Bottom line - this place is OK, but not as good as some of the reviews suggest. The food is fine, but nothing spectacular, while the evening I was there, they did not have half the red wines on their list, as the supplier had not delivered on time. It was also pretty noisy as there was a 30th birthday party on a long table down the middle of the restaurant. So if you want somewhere quick before heading to the likes of the Jazz Cafe, it is fine. if you are looking for a real culinary experience, I suggest you keep your expectations in check.

My sons 17th birthday, food was great, we had a lovely window table with 6 of us, we choose the place as we had vegans and gluten free guests and they had a great variety! And it was a great selection well made... only thing that really let it down was the waitress she was moody, not very friendly! Stone faced individual.

My fave tapas place! I do wish the cheese was changed back to having it with crisps and honey rather than the mashed potato.

Good tapas (including a nice range of tasty vegetarian tapas). The wine by the glass could do with improvement though - not the best selection of reds.

We'd been at a very busy Camden market for an hour or two, so finding a quiet space was perfect. We love tapas, so this was an easy choice.
Everything was perfect - including the pan con tomate, which often gets too soggy for my liking. This bread came with its own little pot of mushed-up tomato. Sizzling prawns with garlic were lip-smackingly good.
Staff are lovely.
We'll be back.

Great food on a Friday evening, the calamari tapas was the best I have ever had and I have had a lot in many different countries. We also had the Mixta Manchego and Serrano ham platter and the cod fries with aioli. A paella for 3 as the main was a bit stoggy for us, more a risotto. A large group came in and were seated in the middle of the restaurant and seemed to be oblivious of others a they were hugging and kissing each and their backpacks kept hitting our table and nearly food. This was the only downside of our experience.

Delicious and authentic food at a good price. One of the waitresses seemed confused though with delivering plates and the room was so hot my older mum nearly fainted and had to go outside. Staff were kind and gave a free mineral water for the journey

This was the second time I had visited one of the Jamon Jamon London restaurants, the second being just as amazing as the first. Beautiful tasting food all brought to us quickly despite how full the restaurant was. It's a great fun atmosphere; loud, but not overbearing. Definitely a favourite for any occasion.
