I was not keeping my hopes up too high… Spanish tapas has room in the UK eating market place but good ones are few a penny in my view. Camino has prime location next to Gauchos on the waterfront near the Four Seasons hotel. Divided into 2…nice open roomy bar as you walk in and the eating area on the right. Bar was spacious and lively. The clientelle seemed to range across the board in age…and there was no evidence of sillly loud drinkers . We booked for 8.30 pm…warm welcome…escorted to our table…again a nice atmosphere…lively buzz in the air … I'm going to get the negatives out of the way first as they were my initial impressions after all . It did take a while for them to get to serve us and ask us for drinks. We could see they were stretched from the onset…and by the time we sat to actually getting our food was a good 1 hour 15 mins…My first impression of the food menu.?… Not a lot of choice… Now I have that out of the way.We move on. We had a couple of decent bottlles of Tinto…not too expensive… the food we did order was pretty good. Lovely meat platter for 2 which consisted of a sliced up steak…spanish black sausage…chargrill quarter of chicken and some spicy pork salami/sausage. ( a bit expensive for what it was…£30 ..one hungry man could have done it ) …lovely Langostines in garlic n butter…ration of fried Croquettes with jamon ( they were nice ) … plate selection of hams and salami also touched the spot.,,,ration of baby fried squid. For 4 of us…round of pre dinner drinks…2 bottles of red…and the food… £235…Hhmmm …not that cheap. Will I go there again ?.. Yes..I definately will…Lovely staff…but perhaps next time I can see myself actually sitting in the bar area and having a more traditional stand up wine and tapas eveningl. The slow service I'm sure was a one off…and I'm sure when we go back we will be recognised and will be forgotten. I still think they could add a few more bits to the menu…Definately worth the visit… Can see this place being very popular in summer.
