Squaremeal Review of Camino Monumento ?

‘Puerto del Canario’ sounds far more exotic than plain old ‘Canary Wharf’, and this little slice of Spain makes a good stab at letting the sunshine in. Camino’s ‘gorgeous’ waterside terrace is the place to be in high summer, while upended Tio Pepe barrels make a jaunty indoor perch on unavoidably English days. Road-trip tapas such as chicken livers with parsley salad, crispy squid with pungent alioli, or tortilla with just the right wobble arrive quickly for those on the go, while others linger with plates of scallops, chorizo and broad beans, or lamb rump with pea purée and baby onions from the charcoal grill. To drink, there are jugs of sangria, draught Estrella and numerous well-regarded Spanish wines, all served by energetic young staff. Funky sounds herald the end of the working week, and there’s brunch, too.

Spanish Wine List Of The Year

Wine List of the Year - Spanish ListAt fewer than 50 bins, this is a well-put-together and laudably concise celebration of Spain – no other country gets a look in until you get to spirits. Reds and whites are listed by style – sunny, juicy, buxom and luscious for the whites. Half the wines are available in a variety of smaller serves, the ubiquitous tasting notes are short but helpful and the illustrations of the cocktails are a nice touch, too. Lots of personality, but no over-indulgence and superbly customer-friendly.

Lunch started quietly just after 12 with the large space almost completely empty- it picked up between 1 and 2pm. Service throughout was friendly and efficient. Food was very good- particularly enjoyed the baked noodle dish (Fiduea)- would order again. The cocktails we had (smoky vodka martini's) which in the West End outlet featured smoky jamon on a cocktail stick (and a much more “smoky” flavour) were something of a disappointment here- two olives, no ham, virtually no smokiness- all novelty dissipated....

Still pretty good

This has been a favourite spot for mine since it opened, getting on for a year ago. I have also been to the Canary Wharf one and the food at both is very good. The staff are delightful and cannot do enough for you. At lunchtime, when I walk past, the place is packed but, like many restaurants in the city, in the evening, it's pretty quiet. The bar is busy though so there is some atmosphere. It's not by any means the cheapest place and it's easy to crank up the bill if you order a few pricey dishes...

Sadly sliding downhill

The food here is pretty good, actually. The highlight for me is the earthy, truffle-scented huevo con calabaza, and they've finally put boquerones on the menu, the lack of which was inexplicable. I'm glad they've seen the light. Unfortunately, the service is haphazard at best, and it seems to be getting worse rather than better as time goes on. I've had lunch and dinner here around 5 or 6 times – I'm a loyal type! – so I'm not talking about a one-off experience. For example, it's become a standing...
