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. Join us on weekends for our Bottomless Saturdays, to enjoy unlimited G&Ts or cava for £20 per person.

I was not expecting the high-level of the food. I was very impressed. The octopus, the gambas and the rib eye were excellent! The service is very good and quick. In a sunny day, with the outdoor terrace, is a very good place to be!

We had an amazing meal here, very authentic Spanish Tapas, so much to choose from, it was hard to pick only 6 dishes! Highly recommend the black label iberico ham - it literally melted in your mouth! Great, friendly service and a good ambience.

Food was fine, as was the service. But why accept reservations for dinner at 2215 (and indeed 2230) if last orders for the kitchen are at 2230? Ended up being a not-cheap case of order/eat/leave asap....

Booked a late dinner with my family on a Friday night after watching a play at the nearby Shakespeare's Globe.

The good: food was great.
The bad: TOO LOUD at that time of night, probably because most patrons are already drunk. My young niece was miserable from the loud noise so we requested a table outside, but was turned down because they say they closed that section already. Not accommodating at all!

Not recommended for families.

Awful! So very noisy and food was no where near as good as last time we went to Camino at Kings Cross. And scruffy looking as well. We could leave quickly enough. Lovely staff just cannot compensate for so many faults. Best avoided.

I loved Camino so much that I actually went with my dad there 2 nights in a row. My dad also went back for a third meal for lunch the next day. Such great tapas - we loved all the food and the amazing drinks. Really recommend the Twisted Root drink 👍🏻

Lovely food and not badly priced wine for London. Camino is a lovely restaurant, perfect for tapas following the Tate Picasso exhibition! Service was quick, but a bit to quick to clear the table while we were still eating - probably wanted the table for another customer - so we felt a bit rushed, but the waitress was very friendly.

Only down side is smoking at the tables when sitting outside.
It’s really simple. Go across the road if you want to smoke

This is what it is. Casual dining. It’s perfectly good for a quick bite to eat but don’t confuse it with an authentic tapas offering. The food is perfectly adequate but not great. If you’re after a quick bite to eat it’s fine. It’s quick, service is very polite. It’s clean and the seating is comfortable. It would probably appeal to groups as well who want an easy after work option

I can't fault the food at all: best tapas I've had in London. The service was friendly, if a tiny bit slow. My only complaint was the large screen TV outside showing Wimbledon. It was as if flood lights were being shone into the restaurant every time a bright image was shown onscreen. In addition, it was very loud. But that meant it was lively, which was good too.

Food was fantastic, we had a number of dishes but most notable were the baby squid, spinach salad, black pudding, bass ceviche and the meatballs. Service was a bit slow (although food came out really quickly), but to be fair it was busy with the after work drinks crowd. Love this restaurant would definitely recommend it, especially if you are planning on doing a Tate Late.

One of the better central London Caminos in our opinion, due to the Bankside location and the ability to sit outside. Lovely atmosphere and a good selection of tapas plates, reasonably priced (tho not cheap). Downside for us is the music, which is more suited to a bar or club than a tapas restaurant, but they have it in Monument branch too, so this seems to be the vibe they are going for. Not too bad if you’re sat outside, but inside it therefore feels more like eating in a club than a restaurant.

No fuss, tasty tapas dishes. Good atmosphere. Service always seems to be excellent - attentive and very friendly. Great place to go for dinner with a partner, on a date or with friends and family. Restaurant has its own bar too which is great if you want a drink before sitting down.

Excellent service, attentive and informative but not too in ones personal space, fab tasting food. I've traveled in Spain a lot on business and vacations and the food in Camino is equally as tasty if not better than many Spanish bars I've eaten in. I can't recommend a particular dish - because it was all good. Tiny word of warning, the gambas in oil and garlic has some meanly hot little chilies in - beware my wife ate one down thinking it was some roasted garlic!

I had booked a table, it was a lovely warm evening and when we arrived at the restaurant we were offered a table outside. The service was exceptional, the food was fab and our waiter had a good knowledge of the menu and wines. My friend and I were very impressed and will be coming back. Ideally located if you have visited Tate modern as we had.

Very disappointed in camino. We have been coming here for a while, and it has just suddenly gone down hill. Waiting staff under too much pressure to push us to drink up, order, clear up, move on, even though the restaurant was half empty and they had no lTer bookings on our table. Not a relaxing experience at all. Menu hS also changed, for the worse. Won't be going there again. It's such a shame!!! P
