SquareMeal Review of Camino King's Cross

The life and soul of España oozes from every pore of this reliable mini-chain, which promises genuine vibes, gutsy food and authentic drinks. Camino is Spanish for ‘road', and a giant wall map heralds a tapas menu that roams the country's regions – think platters of artisan charcuterie, Mallorcan cheese fritters with tomato jam, or potted crab with ‘chapata’ bread. Other good calls include duck stew, and hand-dived scallops with samphire and ‘ajo blanco' sauce, while an imported charcoal grill lends its smoky tones to everything from chicken livers and Basque steaks to presa ibérica (pork shoulder) with roasted aubergine purée. Imbibing is taken seriously, too, with sherries aplenty and wines from a long list of bodegas, plus jugs of sangria, beers and zingy cocktails. Service is sharp and helpful (if a touch ‘haphazard’), and there’s table football in the high-decibel bar.

Camino used to be my favourite restaurant in Kings Cross however, they changed the menu not so long ago and took off the platters that they used to have. This was a real shame and they also changed the squid on the menu and it used to be my favourite dish. However, Camino continues to be excellent for a quick informal catch up with friends or it caters really well for larger groups. As it is tapas food, everyone will get to have a taste of everything so it can become very good value. We also had our work Christmas party there last year and that was really good fun too. The drinks are extensive and they also have a fantastic enclosed courtyard, which is heated in winter and buzzing in summer. There are now four Caminos and I have been to three of them - as it is starting to become a bigger brand in London, I hope that they don't choose profit over authenticity too much, which I fear happened already at the Kings Cross one since it first opened. However, I do still enjoy going there.

Terrific lunch this week. The short(ish) menu had some excellent dishes though could have had one or two more vegetarian choices. The lamb cutlets were outstanding as was the morcilla with peppers but the prawns could have had more flavour. Staff were efficient, pleasant and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
