“food average, paella embarassing, poor service (waiters are good thou)”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

a couple of tapas were good, although portions are really small

paella was seriously embarassing, airplane food

we complained that one dish was not good as it tasted really bad and the whole table didnt like it and we were told by the restaurant manager (without even trying it) that it was perfect and he wouldnt to anything

“Food okay, staff a bit surly”
Reviewed August 29, 2014

The food is okay, although nothing you couldn't prepare yourself if you followed a basic recipe. The food appears to be pre-prepared and then heated, rather than made fresh.

I used a Tastecard and although it says "2 for 1 across all courses" the waiter refused to include the dessert and charged us for both. They also calculate the 12.5% service charge on the overall amount, which ended up making the service charge over 20%. Staff a bit surly in general. Better tapas to be found in London.

“Lovely atmosphere, lovely food!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Myself and a group of friends/family came for an early birthday meal. The place was very cosy and nice decorations, and staff attended to us quite quickly. When we ordered, food came promptly (we didn't wait too long, we were talking a lot anyway) but the food was really nice! I love Spanish food, and this suppressed my craving for quite awhile. They brought out my birthday cake and everyone clapped, which was a bonus for me! Overall nice place for a chilled out atmosphere and prices to me were definitely worth it.

“An average tapas experience in London”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

After what looked like a promising menu, the experience at Jamon Jamon wasn't wholey satisfying. One of our party summed it up perfectly. "I go out to dinner to eat something I can't cook at home!"

There was nothing wrong with the food, but conversely there was nothing exceptional about it either. Quite cramped, a party of three sharing a long table with a party of five.

I'll keep looking for a better tapas in London
