I live near Camden and this has become a bit of a go-to place if I want somewhere easy to take a few friends or family (I have arranged birthday dinners here, and most recently when my boyfriend's dad and sister came to visit and with the decision being in my hands, I wanted to impress) and it never fails to deliver.
Tapas is a great shout for groups as there will always be something everybody likes and the food here is absolutely delicious - absolutely full of richness and flavour. I would recommend in proper tapas tradition, ordering lots of dishes between the group of you as opposed to ordering for yourself. It means that you get to try a bit of everything (and you really should try as much as you can - I have yet to come across a dish here I don't like) and the staff bring out the dishes as they are ready, so it means you can all start tucking in right away (there's something quite glorious about having different dishes arriving every minute!).
The staff are efficient and helpful, and the waiter we had on our last visit was very knowledgable about the origins of a dish we'd only seen before in Spain, and was good at recommending a lovely white Rioja for the table.
The atmosphere is jolly and very relaxed - this is very much a dig in to a bit of everything and swap-plates-around vibe.
I absolutely recommend this place - its as ideal for a first date as it is for a big family celebration, and although they have lots of large tables I'd recommend booking for a group of you.
Just relaxed, easy, delicious food.

Great value Spanish food, either for locals or for unrefined travelers. Tried two tapas, both generous portions, authentic Spanish recipes albeit with local vegetables. Music went more on the Latin American side but the atmosphere was good (late 20 and early 30 somethings with a tendency to converse) Staff were friendly and well mannered, you can tell know their London clientele well. Definitely good for couples not on a serious date, or a group of friends chilling out before partying.

Great location and surprisingly nice tapas. The price is ok for the area of the City. I was let down a bit by the cocky waiter who got the orders mixed up.

Delicious food, great service, good atmosphere, good value. Perfect pre-theatre meal (palace theatre - we went just before watching The Commitments); near Leicester Square tube

A surprisingly good tapas restaurant, friendly service, food delivered quickly, a good atmosphere and they serve a vast platter of iberico an a reasonable price. Will definitely return.
