Camino Blackfriars is the latest instalment in the city, with the soft opening offering 50% off the food bill we couldn’t resist. Hidden behind the backstreet of Blackfriars and Harry’s pizzeria as their neighbour, it is a perfect spot some quiet lunch/dinner.
Heading out with the work colleagues at lunch, pre-booking a table. The server was quick to take our orders, however it then went downhill. Orders were lost, and plates came one at a time, we were conscious about our 1-hour lunch break and it over ran because our food didn’t come out. It seriously did take Camino 1-hour to prepare the cheese and meat board (photo not shown).
With the negative aside, I did enjoy the food, well-balanced flavours, freshly made. Portions are a decent size, and I have been back twice since the soft launch and had better experiences. The platter had plenty of variety of tapas, from peppers, chorizo, olives, calamari and ham croquettes.blackfriars, book, Camino, cheese, flavours, food, london, opening, pizza, Pizzeria, restaurant, tapas
