“Nice pre-theatre venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

We took our inlaws here before Singing in the Rain across the road, and the service was enthenically Spanish, excellent and friendly, and the food was good. Not the greatest tapas I've ever had, but very nice non-the-less.
We had a 10pound deal, 2 courses and a drink.
Very nice.

“Best Spanish food in London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Warm friendly restaurant, generous portions of well prepared Spanish favourites and good inexpensive red wine to accompany it. Would highly recommend Jamon Jamon

“Overpriced tasteless food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

A bright side was that service by its staff was great. They were attentive and reluctant to rush us to decide our order.

However, food was tasteless and overpriced. I just came back from Spain a weekend ago so the difference was so obvious.

“Micro waved food !!! Amazing cocltails !!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

I found this restaurant thanks to the "London restaurant Festival" website and it seemed to be a good idea to try something new for once. The waiters warmly welcomed us. The music was exotic and not too loud.We ordered only tapas and as soon as we ordered the dishes, it arrived on the table.It was too fast to be good ... it was obvious that it was micro waved food. Amazing cocktails though !!To be honest, for this range of prices, you better go to Christopher’s place and get tasty tapas. It’s not worth trying the restaurant!!

“Terrible Experience! Mice running around all over the floor is apparently "Not the restaurants problem"”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Went here with my girlfriend (who's Spanish) after watching a Spanish movie thought it would be a nice way to complete the evening. Say not.

Food was massively average, we're talking a single step up from La Tasca. Lots of better Spanish Restaurants to eat at in London. Don't bother with this one even if like us you were tempted by the 2 for 1 offer on a Monday.

Sadly average food isn't the worst of Jamon Jamon's problems. There were mice- lots of mice. We saw 3 at the same time, one was running down the side of the bar (looking particularly plump and well fed) when informed of the mouse issue I was dismissed with the classic line "they come through the front door, don't worry this restaurant doesn't have a problem with mice"

A definite no go!!!
