The word Jamon, pronounced “yamon”, means ham in Spanish, and if there is one thing the Spanish are crazy about, it is good Jamon. In Spain, Jamons are traditionally made in local family farmhouses. Each house has its own curing room or camara where the Jamons are hung to mature. Such is the rivalry in these local villages that it is not unknown for at least one family member to be left at home at all times just to guard the Jamons. But why Jamon Jamon? Well, in Spain, if something is good, then two of it must be superb, and the call Jamon Jamon has come to mean just this in the colloquial Spanish dialect.
Food was excellent, house wine (Rioja) very acceptable and reasonable price, good atmosphere and service. Overall a very enjoyable experience, we will go there again!
Great food and especially the sangria!! Highly recommend for dates and other group parties. The tapas are of great proportions so are perfect for sharing! And obviously the buy one get one free jug of sangria...
Everything about Jamon Jamon cannot be faulted. The service is fantastic, the food and sangria both great - try the meat platter and the cheesecake. We’ll be back soon.
This is a surprising little gem in Belsize Park. We had a brilliant time and the amount and variety of food was excellent, even catering for the gluten intolerant and vegans among us. Thanks so much for making our work night out special.
Lively, fun restaurant serving authentic food that is cooked on the premises. Staff are Spanish which is refreshing, even if things sometimes get lost in translation! Although the staff are very friendly and helpful, they sometimes fall behind on service and need reminders. We don't mind this but it could be irritating. David, who is the Manager, is charming and always remembers us. It can get very busy and gets a little noisy but we managed to communicate between 5 of us which can be impossible in some places. A good, local gem which is appreciated as an asset to the neighbourhood scene
We are regulars at Jamon Jamon Belsize Park. The staff is very friendly and the food is great. Especially the seafood Paella! David (assistant manager) has always been really nice to us and is always there to help. Highly recommend it!
Second time at Belsize Park. Again, the food was fantastic. Service is quite slow. Menu states waiting time of 30/40 mins for Paella, both times we've waited almost 1 hour. Worth waiting for though, very tasty!! Also, table wasn't cleared between courses. Might have the space to put dishes and pans on the table if you clear things away.
Excellent food, very relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. Highly recommend and will certainly come again. Only possible issue is that tables very small for the number of dishes usually served so try to get a table for 4 even if you are only 2 people.
Party of twelve for a birthday meal - service was good, and food was excellent as always. Only thing that could have been quicker was paying the bill, but that's not a real issue at all and really just on here to fill the 25 word minimum threshold on the review.
Great evenin. . Food camer as it was ready and was very tasty. Octopus is recommended. The service was very good. It was really busy and the Tables were very close to each other. It was very noisy which was good for atmosphere but could be difficult for conversation .
