Camino Bankside is tucked away behind the Tate Modern on London’s Bankside. Full of natural light by day, and softly lit for an intimate mood by night, opening onto a large outdoor terrace perfect for a drink or two on long summer evenings.

Bankside is also home to our impressive jamón counter, with a selection of impeccable quality Ibérico black pig hams professionally carved by one of our highly trained cortador de jamón.

We’re open everyday for lunch, dinner and everything in between.

    Food is delicious. Loved every single item we ordered. Great for sharing, veg forward and good value. Service wasn't great but it was standard for London.

    Given virtually no customers, the service was lacking from arrival. I also felt the food was not great, too oily, too salty and underdone. I have eaten here before and it was a much better experience. I hope they don’t lower standards because of Covid restrictions.

    The food was wonderful, as was the atmosphere. Both servers were great - funny, warm, engaging. I ordered three plates plus dessert. All was delicious, though my third plate came around 15 minutes after the first two.

    The food was delicious ... the tortilla was particularly moreish. Value for money especially when we realised they were still adopting the “eat out to help out” offer. Good service and safety measures adhered to. We will definitely make a return visit.

    Use to book this restaurant for clients and then went with my sister. Felt really uncomfortable when I said I was allergic to egg, felt the waitor found it an inconvience. One of the waitors kept pulling their face mask down. Will not being going again or booking for clients. Only good thing was, they were doing the eat out scheme otherwise it would have been £90 for 2 people which is just ridiculous.

    Terrible communication from the staff. First they couldn't find our booking, then there was so much miscommunication about the menu (what was and wasn't available, what deals were and weren't happening) and such slow staff response that it took about 40 minutes for us to be able to order. And then at the end it took three attempts until we got the correct bill. The food was okay but only worth it because we have the Eat Out to Help Out discount. Poorly managed staff and bad communication all round. Not surprising when the manager came over to check in and he was the same man who spent the rest of the evening smoking and drinking in the corner with a friend.

    Very good food and beautiful place with a great terrace but the service was very slow. Maybe is due to the recent restart following months of closure due to COVID.

    Very pleasant and good value tapas restaurant, newly re-opened after the CV-19 lockdown. Very little to fault aside from one dish being over-looked and then not adequately cooked (a tortilla) - but was removed from the bill without any drama. Nice to be able to sit outside, in the shadow of Tate Modern.

    We went to Camino for a Valentine's day dinner. The tables were so close to each other that we could hear everyone's conversations which created a very poor ambience. Food was very good but the portions are very small for the price you pay. I don't recommend booking a table for 2 since you will be eating 10cm away from another couple.

    Loud. Everything swims in oil. Low quality cuts of meat which turned into badly cooked steaks. Really wanted to give Camino a go as it's right next to the office, and have been for work drinks before, so decided to book it for dinner. Not sure how they managed to score above 4.0 as the food wasn't cooked that well. Everything was cooked and presented with a thick coating of oil. The rib eye steak was presented in such a non appealing messy way that you question if it was steak or some fried beef strips from Tesco. The only thing that tasted great was the black label jamon - the one thing that didn't require cooking. Service was quick at least and waiters quite friendly! If you have a discount card then it is worth going to but would otherwise avoid spending money on the food. Seafood definitely cooked better than the meat items. Here are things we would and wouldn't recommend ordering from the kitchen: Recommend: black label jamon, croquettes, squid ink black rice, gambas (king prawns) ajillo, padron peppers. Note that all of the above (aside from the uncooked things) will be extremely oily. Avoid: Ribeye steak, meatballs, cheese platter.

    Fantastic food as always. We loved the free glass of Cava and a small starter platter which was a Jan offer. The black pudding remains a firm favourite as do the cheese fritters with chilli jam. Chai crusted trout was lovely too. Really, all the dishes are great. Lovely wine and a reasonably priced wine list which really attentive service and friendly knowledgeable staff. We are repeat customers for all these reasons and will be back. A fantastic restaurant experience.

    I've been to Camino several times in the past, but hadn't been for a while. The food is quite expensive for what it is, and the portion sizes have definitely shrunk. The albobdigas were the smallest I have ever seen: one tapa was just four meatballs, not much bigger than marbles, and cost £6.75. The calamari special was particularly poor, only three tiny pieces between four, and we had to complain to get a fourth piece. The pan con tomate portions were also much smaller than my last visit. Camino wouldn't last five minutes in Spain. Super disappointed, and I won't be going back.
