Met a friend in a nearby pub, and saw Jason Jason from where I was standing, we decided to go there. Not disappointed. Great food, lovely service. Loved the octopus dish. Thanks

We popped in without booking as we were fairly early for a Saturday and were given a table straight away. Service was good, though it got quite busy later on. The pricing was reasonable and the standard of food was quite high. I liked the ambience and we enjoyed our tapas and a nice glass of red wine. Just what... More

Have utilised this Spanish restaurant on a couple of occasions when walking Upper Street and it’s always been OK for us. But then we only utilise it for tapas and stick to mainly fish and vegetable dishes. The sardines and mushrooms with spinach were particularly good last week and usually find the service levels attentive enough.

Visited on Saturday evening for the first time with a group of friends. We pre booked a table I'm advance for 8 and although we probably could have just turned up and got the one the place did seem to be getting incredibly busier as the evening went on. I was incredibly impressed with the wide choice of dishes available... More

This is not the first time I eat at Jamon Jamon. What claims to be a Spanish tapas is a poor version of the real thing. Fatty, oily and poor quality food. the service is ok.

My partner and I went for a meal as we felt for a tapas. The food was okay and so was the service but we waited a long time to pay. Table for two just about held what we ordered to eat which was not much. Sangria was not as great as expected but was okay

We went here on a Friday evening, we were seated downstairs beside the stairs and bar, the manager served us who was French and very friendly with plenty of chat out if him. Nice ambience in the restaurant, we had a charcuterie board with cheese which was massive and cheap considering, I was nearly too full for our paella. The... More

Little did they know one of my friends first language is Spanish , and overheard them repeatedly bad mouthing our group with no reason , we made no complaints at all. We paid with no tip... More

Came with a friend and ordered bread with butter (pan) as a starter while waiting for our food. Only cost 80p for 5 pieces! Which is very cheap. Ordered the patatas bravas which came in a large portion (bigger than the one i had in barcelona) and chorizo paella, which i never thought i would choose (as i am a... More
