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!

Delicious tapas, very good service from the waiting staff. We went early on Saturday so it wasn't yet too busy, but the service was the right balance of attentive but not rushed. Good wine and food recommendations, overall a very nice experience, would go back.

Really lovely food, a bit pricey but to be expected in this area. Delicious food was only spoiled by our waitress; rude and brash, gave and charged us for a very expensive bottle of wine when we asked for the cheapest house wine and interrupted our conversations repeatedly very rudely to get us to pass her most of the plates and cutlery.

Authentic tapas and a great selection of dishes. Waiting staff were helpful and friendly. It is a pretty noisy place so not that great for a quiet romantic meal, but great for groups of friends or family or work colleagues.

This isn't the easiest place to find; my sister and I walked from King's Cross station and ended up going in an almost complete circle before we saw one sign - and we were following a map! More signposting would be an excellent move.
This is a tapas restaurant, serving a wide range of dishes, sherries, wine and other drinks. We selected six tapas between us, two vermouths, a carafe of white wine and two black coffees, and with the service charge the bill was circa £76. We enjoyed the food - which is served as the dishes are ready, rather than all in one go - and the wine that our waitress recommended. Service was efficient and friendly, and we'll probably go to a Camino again.

We were placed on a table for two which was right by where everyone ( Staff and customers would walk by, one customer went by and knocked our small table to the side slightly. We were told by the waitress from the beginning that they needed the table back within two hours, ( not very welcoming). Some of the food was OK, but most, apart from the salad was tiny portions ( and yes I do know they were meant to be small but they were really tiny!) and one of the dishes which just wasn't nice at all ( big inedible spring greens which was supposed to be a special). When I said to the waiter I hadn't liked it, he just pulled a face and said thats sad! He didn't apologise or offer to have this dish taken off the price of the meal. The waiters were a bit over eager and would remove any dish we had finished with within seconds which made us feel a bit uneasy and difficult to relax. The service charge ( 12%) is included in the meal and me and my friend both felt it was an overpriced meal for what it was. Wont be going back.

The food was great as usual but we gave our desserts order only to be told 5 minutes later we needed to leave as there was another booking and a ‘queue at the door’. There was no queue and even if there was another booking they could have told us before we ordered! We had to get their attention to make the order so it’s not like we were sat at an empty table for ages. There was another empty table too but the waitress said we couldn’t use it. I’d never normally review a restaurant but I’ve never actually been kicked out from a place before after making an order! I understand it’s busy on Fridays but there is other ways to manage customers coming in and out your establishment. We were also going to order more drinks but I think the message was that essentially they’d made as much money out of us as possible so we should go. So a disappointing end to an otherwise great evening with lovely food.

This is the first time I have taken my husband and I had been raving about the food, in particular the Chorizo tapas dish. Unfortunately that dish arrived last and was luke warm quickly turning to cold which completely ruins the taste of the dish. It appeared they had forgotten to bring the dish earlier and it had been sitting around getting cold. Apart from that, the waitress didn't understand one or two of our orders but all in all the food, service and ambience were great. We would definitely give it another go but perhaps not order the chorizo next time :)

The food here was amazing, really loved the atmosphere (although a little too loud if anyone has bad hearing/large groups). The waiters cleared the dishes away a little too quickly so we did have to ask them to bring some back since the food wasn't even finished, but they were very lovely and polite - just too good at their jobs! A lovely evening and place to go for dinner.

The food was a pit pricey for tapas. The wine was excellent at reasonable price. We were 15 mins earlier and we were advised to go next door for a drink but it was too busy and noisy. We ended up walking around, when they could have accommodated us earlier as there were few empty tables. We were served quite promptly and staff was very nice.
