The reason was because we waited over half an hour for our bill. wasn't asked if our food was ok, there was staff and the place was empty but no... More

Mexican but not really. Sorely disappointing. It's not hard to make margaritas and the quesadillas could improve.

I been twice and would return to ay Caramba. The mexican food is great, the drink is good. Sombreros to wear if you want and it a nice meal out. Beats chimi changa and chiquitos. Much more independent and authentic experience

Super fast service. Good tasting Mexican of good size portions. Slightly cold inside but considering it was -1 outside that's understandable

My friend and I popped in for a quick bite before a gig at KOKO's last night. Fortunately it was just before 7pm so we took advantage of the happy hour cocktails!! We ordered a couple of starters as a light meal and were delighted with the speed of service, the wonderful waiter 'Marshall' and the delicious food. The prawn... More

Have been a few times now and always manage to get seated quickly during busy periods. Food comes out fast. Drinks can sometimes be a bit strong. One of the top 3 places my partner and I visit when we go to camden!

I was looking for a place to have lunch in the busy area of Camden Town and I noticed this Mexican restaurant just outside Mornington Crescent station. They had a good lunch deal offering two courses and a beer for a tenner so I decided to try it. I was greeted in a friendly manner and the waitress was very... More

Staying in Camden

Neighbourhood Profile
Camden
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighbourhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
