SquareMeal Review of Camino Blackfriars (bar)



The Camino group has followed the success of its hopping Spanish restaurants with a pair of specialist bars: the sherry-drenched Bar Pepito in King's Cross, and this cava-soaked bodega near Blackfriars. Drinkers are nudged towards a fine list of 'método tradicional' bubbles from Catalonia – including frisky rosés, aged Gran Reservas and tasting flights. But it's not just about the fizzy stuff: the magnums of Rioja and frozen mugs of draught Mahou lager are also in keeping with the vaulted cellar bar's traditional leanings. There's plenty of tapas to pick at as well – from boquerones and pata negra ham to salt cod 
and Idiazabal cheese buñuelos (dough balls). And for something at the heartier end, we would single out the mixed grill for two – a heaving plate of rib-eye steak, morcilla, presa ibérica and broken eggs.

We lingered for more than 5 hours, started with a cava flight each then moved to bottles of our favourite accompanied by very good tapas. Service was friendly and helpful, and it was the perfect place for a long catch up with old friends.
