Great restaurant close to Kings Cross Station. Wonderful range of small plates and plenty of vegetarian options. Also good range of drinks and coffees. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. It's definitely not a budget option but it's good for a treat - Highly recommend.

Really lovely food as always. Ends up being fairly expensive for a casual dinner but always guaranteed good food so don't mind! Very noisy so had to talk very loudly!

Delicious food, as always!! I especially love their speck, parmesan cream & egg sourdough pizza - cooked with a perfectly runny yolk
It would be great to have the option to get some dips (pesto, garlic butter etc) to dip the crusts in :)

Service was excellent- very friendly & quick

I am a loyal customer who has been going to Caravan for nearly five years now. I love the food and the atmosphere but last night I was disappointed. It is clear that the owners are trying to make the most money by hiring less staff than needed and limiting dining times. Might make them money in the short term but definitely put me off going there again. My friend and I spent a couple hundred quid in two hours to barely get service and be asked to leave before we could finish our food. Owners need to change their tactic cause it’s definitely not working. I feel for the staff.

Hi Thomas, Sounds like we have really let you down and I would like to hear more about your visit with us. Can you email me on anna@caravankingscross.co.uk to discuss this further? We are actively hiring and aware on some shifts last week we were left short, but this is definitely not intentional and I'm really sorry your dining experience was effected by this - hope to speak to you soon, Anna

Great for group booking of 5 or over. Lovely atmosphere. Only thing is I ordered another drink which I never received...it was too late to order another one as the booking slot had come to an end. Which is a shame because service is usually perfect.

Last brunch orders are 11.20 which seems early.
Menu was relatively basic, and slightly expensive based on quality.
Some of the dishes were good and coffee was nice.

Met for an al-fresco lunch during the Covid restrictions, luckily the weather was fine. Shared a small plate of burrata with fennel and the larger plate of haloumi with sweet potato, both of which were very tasty. Then shared a sourdough pizza with kale, mushroom and rose harissa which was delicious. A bottle of Malbec was lovely but a bit pricey. All in all I would visit again

Overall excellent but the food was a bit hit and miss. We ordered 5 dishes 3 of which were fabulous. Sadly the other two (including the most expensive) were disappointing and a bit bland! But it will definitely get another chance.

It wasn’t the service or staff fault. It was incredibly Indy and there were no attempts to put some kind of shield up. The next door brasserie looked so much more inviting.

Hey Tanuja, Sorry you were so badly effected by the wind - next door have much more narrow umbrellas than us that withstand the wind better and I think we also act as a bit of a shield for them! Unlucky for us. We are open inside now if you would like to book with us again, Hope to see you soon

Lovely friendly staff who have given us a warm welcome twice in one week.
The two daals were delicious but thought the poached eggs & sourdough overdone. White peach Bellinis a little underwhelming.
Don’t want to be too harsh as it’s so good to be back at restaurants!

Breakfast was cooked well but very small. Disappointed as the thick cut bacon was 1 piece of streaky bacon.
Asked to order dessert and was informed they needed the table back in 15mins as they had booked it for a turnover.
I don’t mind restaurants doing this but they need to inform the customer on arrival!!
Was informed they could put a candle on the dessert for my friend when I rang to check (birthday), I double checked on arrival and sadly the staff lacked the care to do so!! Therefore I didn’t not pay the service charge, I normally would as I have worked in this industry myself.
Overall was pretty disappointed. Would go again for evening but if the service was the same, I wouldn’t return.

We did not stay to eat as we were offered a table where the rain fell on two members of our party of three and on to the place settings. The weather was bad but if you are going to offer outdoor dining you need to protect your customers from the elements. Offering us soaking wet seats and table was not impressive customer service and we went to Notes nearby where we could eat under cover.
