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 place but the food was a bit of a let down. Found the meat dishes too fatty, and fish rice dish was way too sickly. Service was great though, and good wine. Wouldn’t rush back for the food.

    Service was amazing, we ended up being 35 minutes late due to traffic but the staff still fit us in. We had to get a train so needed to be very quick so the food came out as and when which was great for us. The food itself was probably some of the best food I’ve ever eaten, especially the black rice and the potato croquettes. Definitely recommend them!!

    We returned to this restaurant as we had a great experience in 2016, so was really looking forward to having a similar experience. Unfortunately the portions have got a lot smaller, and all the tapas we ordered had far too much salt, so much so had to keep drinking water & beer to was it down. The ambiance of the place is great and spacious, but it was a little strange to place a group of 4 right beside us, a couple, when there were loads of spare places elsewhere away from us in the section we were sitting. It's a lovely restaurant, the staff are great and it's a good place for a get together with groups of friends, family and also intimate enough for dating couples!

    Very over priced tapas. They charged us for a more expensive bottle of wine by £10! They also added on £12 for service charge. Overall is was like a Spanish Nando’s, the original bill was £100 for 2 people. The food quality did not match the price. Very disappointing will not be returning.

    Even though the restaurant wasn't very busy, they sat us in an awkward position very close to two other tables. The service as inattentive, with staff seemingly more interested in socialising with each other rather than waiting on tables, we had to ask for tap water 3 times before any arrived. The food was good, enjoyable, no issues there, it was really the service that let it down.

    Good food. Excellent wine. Service not great. In general nice friendly staff but weird organisation. Not sure if they have areas they cover or whether it’s just a free for all. We had to flag people down to order anything. Certain staff can’t take orders. Biggest irritant was table only partially cleared when we finish eating, leaving us finishing wine surrounded by plates. Not horrific but annoying. Then ordered to the bar “we need the table back” although it was 9 pm and there were several other empty tables in the restaurant. And the booking didn’t have a time limit. Tortilla was excellent. As was wine list - and the original staff member who took order very knowledgeable about wine with great recommendations.

    The restaurant was noisy and the tables were all squashed together in a small area and very close to each other. I could barely squeeze between them to get to my seat. It was hard to converse over the noise. Service was quick and food and drinks arrived straight away. After which all the service disappeared. It was an ok experience.

    We had a table booked for 6.00 so the restaurant was quite empty and quiet at that time. The service we had was excellent, friendly and efficient. And later on despite the restaurant being very full and busy the level of service was maintained. The food was also excellent. Overall a very enjoyable meal. If the opportunity arises I would readily return to Camino if only to sample the some of the other dishes that we missed first time.

    We enjoyed a nice early evening tapas meal at busy El Camino. The food selection provided some good choices, all of which were well presented and tasty. Service was pretty quick (first food arrived before our wine) but not rushed; staff were attentive and pleasant. It was lively and quite noisy, we enjoyed the buzz. Limited but OK selection of Spanish wines. Prices what you'd expect for the area. We'll be back.
