Myself and a few girls from work booked an evening meal here. Disappointed to be informed that "happy hour" is cancelled during December, which is one of the reasons we initially chose this venue. Service was a little haphazard - had to chase the waiter for drinks, then wrong drinks were brought to us, and this happened more than once (the restaurant wasn't particularly busy). The food was good, although portions were small so it seemed pricey, although this is common in central London restaurants. All in all a good restaurant, just a shame about the patchy service and lack of a happy hour!

Dinner with friends. Lovely meal and wine although music and dancing in the bar area was a bit odd. I had expected Spanish music (being a Spanish restaurant) but the music was mostly crunk.

Decent Spanish tapas, just as expected. We had some nice Rioja too and, since the table was right in the back of the restaurant, we could have a nice conversation. Would visit again!

Camino Blackfriars - Recommended to me by a friend. I booked it for a leaving do with 6 close friends. I arrived a little early with a friend so had a few drinks at the bar before the rest of my guests arrived. Good vibe and setting. The food and service were great. Would be great venue for a larger party too.

A good choice for tapas, selection is good with decent flavour combinations. Portion sizes sensible and allow one to try a decent range of tapas. Service quick and pleasant.

Always a good choice for Spanish tapas! Good location with a friendly vibe. One thing to mention is that the black rice was too salty....

A great to spend a special occasion. Instead of the usual 3 course, friends and I decided to do the Tapas menu and was great. Tasty blends of spice and variety of different platters and bowls of vegetables/meat and accompaniments. Delightful!
Good ambience with music. Buzzing!

Good middle of the road tapas joint, but not in the league of Jose, Brindisa & Mar i Terra.
One actual negative - ill-conceived ceviche was too chilli hot and with an undesirable sweet potato creme puree.

Good food and great wine meeting the standards that we come to expect from Camino but sadly the service was a little slow and disorganised.

Busy bar and outside area. But the dining area is inside around the corner. Neatly tucked away and cosy. The menu has a nice variety and drinks menu is also extensive. Service is good but can slow down when very busy.

Excellent food and very friendly service. The food was just gorgeous! The only negative is that it was very popular and because it also has a bar the restaurant area felt a bit too loud for conversation. Would definitely go again, perhaps for lunch.

Good atmosphere, food was good but overpriced for the small amount (we had a couple of platters) but it was nice food so not too disappointed. Happy hour is always a good idea!

We were rowdy, they were tolerant. We had an excellent evening from food through to service. We'd go back but probably under another name. Perfect.

Good, reliable, decent value. You know what you're going to get here. Not exactly bustling - as pretty well hidden - but hey, you might actually prefer that.
