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!

Private Dining

Our lively bar and restaurant sprawls around a courtyard, a haven from the bustle of King’s Cross St Pancras station. The courtyard comes alive in summer, full of people enjoying a glass of Spanish beer or a sherry from Pepito. With outdoor heaters, it's often busy on even the coldest of evenings.

The food was outstanding, every single dish we ordered was delicious. The service was ok, a little slow although all the waiters were very helpful and friendly, but all seemed a bit stretched.... it's a busy place and can be quite noisy, but the food is all worth it!

Food and service were great as always at Camino but I’d forgotten how noisy and busy it can get so it wasn’t ideal for a date. The waitresses were incredibly attentive though and served us well whilst giving us space, not always an easy balance to strike.

After two hours a waitress came and said we exceeded the time allocated to us and we said ok please bring the bill we paid and about the leave ( 5 min later) a waiter came and again said leave. They were very rude.

I have been several times before but this was my most successful visit: the black rice with tiny pieces of seafood was outstanding; as were the prawns in garlic (perfectly cooked), I had them with some fried potatoes and a robust Spanish wine and with two former students of mine I had not seen for ages and it was a really great venue for it.

Such tasty food, it's always a delight coming to Camino! Friendly and efficient staff. Fast service. Sangria is so good here. Only slight negative is that the tables are very close together so you can all hear eachothers conversations.

This time round, I can't review the food, but I can say how lovely the staff were - I sat for 45 minutes waiting for a friend. They didn't fuss me, but served me water - until we all had to give up, as the kitchen had to close!
The friend, it transpired, had locked herself out of her flat.............
Still, we'll be back, because I know Camino very well; the choice of tapas is great, the wine list is very good, and yes, the staff are excellent!

Great for Saturday night dinner, the bill was a little on the heavy side but we did have cocktails to start! Food was so good, not one bad dish to comment on. we ordered 3-4 per person and that was plenty.

Delicious tapas in a cosy restaurant nestled in a surprise courtyard in King's Cross. We used the January food offer and had tonnes of tasty food, at a great price. We booked for early dinner (6:15) and when an additional friend wanted to join us there was no space for us to get a larger table so we squished in! Recommend booking for sure!

I have been here many times and have enjoyed the food every time. Some tapas staples and some interesting extras. It is a very good place for tapas with a good atmosphere. A little overpriced but would still recommend.

Unfortunately they didn’t have a lot of options available for example no chicken, no Spanish omelette, no mushrooms amongst about 4 other things so the menu was limited.

Booked for 6 on a Tuesday night for our office Xmas Party. We had tons of fun, not so sure about our neighbours (apologies!). I had already been to Camino with my partner so I knew what to expect. Food was gorgeous (especially the presa and the black rice) but could have been a bit warmer. Staff was patient and helpful. I would definitely recommend. Prices might seem a bit steep but all the ingredients are of top quality. Eat less but better!

Great place to meet a bunch of friends.so people can choose own dishes and/or share as wanted. Tapas were interesting flavours, well presented and with the exception of the cheese dish generous portions. Puddings were relish too. Coffees include the Malaga favourite cafe bonbon.Interesting wine list and short sweet list v good including one recommended in Guardian the next morning. Short Cava list includes the delicious but expensive Gramona. Service was charming and efficient. A friend who couldn’t come had phoned through a bottle of cava and that was ready for us.

If you are going for the first time google maps is not v helpful. We asked in the square and told the easiest way to find it is go along pentonille road from kings x and turn left down the alley just after Starbucks.
