Food is amazing and very authentic. Atmosphere and service are also good - staff are very attentive and won't leave you waiting for very long.
Starters, paella and desserts all excellent and within a couple of minutes walk from the theatre. Very pleasant and helpful staff in pleasant surroundings. Would definitely recommend.
A lovely meal and the staff were great. Can't fault the meal. It was a birthday celebration and they were kind enough to present cake and sing happy birthday!
Lovely place, very good service, staff helpful and very pleasant. Food was delicious very good value. I will be returning as often as I can.
Great tapas restaurant. We were a group of 3 people out for a birthday meal. The restaurant had a mix of meat dishes and vegetarian options (for my mum who's vegetarian). It was lovely being able to get a few dishes I had tried for the first time in Barcelona - like the pimentos del padron! We ordered a fair few dishes including the usual fare of Spanish tortilla and paella. The food was served quickly and was delicious. The portions were good for us - as we all shared everything. We went during a quiet lunch serviceThe restaurant was close to the main theatres near Shaftesbury avenue. The price was usual London prices - we ordered a little bit too much I would say, but there were so many things we wanted to try! I think 3 portions per person would be adequate - we ended up getting a paella on top, which I think was too much! Though we finished it all with a pitcher of Sangria!
As always,friendly service,delicious food,apart from one particular tapas dish which was done differently this time,the cod in alioli sauce,it is usually delicious,but on this particular day,(10.10.15),the cod was slightly underdone and lay on top of soggy mashed potato instead of sliced potatoes,please Jamon Jamon Soho chefs,revert back to the original recipe.
A little bit of an issue with the bill at the end. We had a tastecard and they said you can only use for a maximum of 5 free dishes (we had ordered 12, and the waitress failed to tell us this, although I think perhaps she didn't know the tastecard t and c's herself). Food was great, lovely atmosphere. Was quite quiet so turned up an hour before the table was booked and just enjoyed a beer. Would recommend, but if using a tastecard just ask them for conditions at first. Also there is a service charge!
Great tapas restaurant. I was there with a group for my birthday and our waiter, who I think was also the manager, couldn't do enough for us. The service wasn't that speedy as he seemed to be on his own but we were in no hurry so it was no problem at all. We ended up staying all afternoon and felt absolutely no pressure even when we'd finished our dishes. The food, especially the tuna and cod, was very good and the portions were decent sized. Highly recommended for a fun lazy lunch with friends.
Overall very good. Staff were friendly, paella was excellent - very good size for 2 people. Not particularly keen on places that add the service charge automatically as in my opinion it is something that is earned and not assumed though. The one little detail worth mentioning is in the "special request" section on Quandoo I asked if the table could be in a quiet area, and we ended up right next to the door and it was loud when it got busy. But overall excellent, would come back.
Great food, vibrant atmosphere and friendly staff. Paella for 3 was plenty for 4 of us although we had 6 tapas dishes ahead of it (Paella has a 30-40 min wait, which is what I'd expect) Prices were reasonable and the white Rioja we chose went well with the food. We also arrived late due to the crazy time it takes a taxi to get around Soho but I'd telephoned ahead and our table was kept free - pretty good for an internet booking on a busy night!
Staff were extremely accommodating & nothing was too much bother.There was a mix up (probably our fault) on the drinks order & they took our word with the confusion & left the wrong drinks with us for free, and got us our intended drinks right away. A real 'Customer is always right' approach. Food was good. The waiter was kind enough to tell us that we might be over-ordering, & ultimately he was right, which we really appreciated. Very happy to return here!
We had booked a table at this restaurant quite some time ago because we were at the theatre nearby and we knew it was the Gay Pride March on the same day so Soho would be packed. It was very busy in the small courtyard outside but almost empty inside. Despite this, it still took almost 30 minutes to even get our drinks. Attracting the attention of the staff long took perseverance and wild gesticulations. On several occasions, we ordered drinks that didn't appear until we issued a reminder. So, service is terrible; what about the food? I'd say it was a little above average but a reasonable price and decent portions. Don't go in expecting a tour de force of spanish cooking. Expect basic, cooked to a budget but tasty enough, just.
We visited the soho branch on a bank holiday monday. We ordered 8 dishes, most of which were excellent. The prawn skewers were very average and the goats cheese as a bit rubbery. The lamb chops, the white baits, the cod , the octopus was lip smacking. The service was quite good as well, the 11 GBP service charge was a bit high but was okay considering we were on a groupon voucher. Will definately visit again.
Wonderful little tapas restaurant. Very friendly staff, beautiful food and the atmosphere was good too. I would highly recommend the grilled goats cheese with honey and orange to those of you who have a sweet/ savoury tooth :). My only suggestion would be to go when you've got a free evening ahead, it's more of a leisurely place. If you're heading out to a show, leave plenty of time. I will definitely be going again :)
The entire experience in Jamon Jamon was superb. The quality and quantiy of food was excellent, the service was second to none, the atmosphere was so friendly. I would and already have recommended this restaurant to many friends and colleagues. The final touch was the excellent bottle of wine that our waiter recommended . Do yourself a favour and bust this restaurant
Jamon Jamon Soho always serves delicious tapas and very refreshing Cava sangrias,and always with friendly service,unfortunately on this occasion,there was one table of four women,who were very loud and very noisy.
Nice place tucked away in a corner. Excellent food and friendly staff - Huge variety of tapas to choose from, and the pricing was fairly good. The paellas were delicious, and it took less then 40 min, for the paella to be served which was at the end of our meal. Thank you for seating us and taking care of us.
Food was great, but took one hour to arrive! We were told paella would take 30-40 minutes, as it's cooked to order, but it took 60-65 minutes. After 50 minutes we asked and the chef did come to us twice to apologise. When it arrived, the food was great, but we had to rush, left half of it on the plate, and then had to rush to the theatre where we arrived with one minute to spare. This was inconvenient, as we had visitors and had planned the evening for three months. I guess other people's experience of the restaurant on the night was different, as three rounds of people were served at the table behind us while we were there.
Easy to book online for a large group for a Friday evening. I've been there twice with my work colleagues and they loved the place. Good atmosphere and the food is great. I am Spanish and I can relate to most of the food I've tried there, not like in most "Spanish" restaurants in London! Staff are friendly. Thanks
Six of us went to the restaurant at Sunday lunchtime for a family meal. The staff were very helpful and assisted us to choose from the extensive Tapas menu. We chose 2 sharing platters and garlic bread as a starter followed by 2 tapas dishes each. The food was very good - hardly anything was left. Only my wife had room for a desert. We would certainly go again.
Very nice drinks and meal, food excellent. Service could be a little better paced, very keen to take first order then once food arrived never asked us if we wanted more drinks etc. service charge issues- if you ask for the meaty 12.5% to be removed ( restaurant is already expensive and service not excellent) it is tricky and embarrassing. Food is amazing however, tasty , quick and fresh.
We went to Jamon Jamon as a party of 15 and it couldn't have been better. We had a great table by an open window right on the courtyard - lovely for a warm summer's evening. The atmosphere was great, the staff really nice and attentive and the tapas fantastic and excellent value for money. Highly recommended!
Jamon Jamon Soho has wonderful food, great atmosphere and friendly service. Will definitely be returning for more tapas and paella. La comida esta te la puta madre ;)
Nice friendly staff, feeling quite Spanish because of the surroundings and atmosphere, which was good! Food wise, very reasonable portions. Actually the paella for two was pretty big so we both had a lovely full meal. Ordered the seafood and chicken paella, which tasted so good while the ham croquettes were also impressive but slightly salty. In total it was £56 for two, pretty happy!
At Jamon Jamon Soho,you get friendly service and delicious food,especially the various tapas with seafood,we come here virtually every saturday for lunch.This is an excellent Spanish restaurant.
Fantastic atmosphere - we sat and enjoyed good food and good company in the perfect atmosphere for about three and a half hours. The staff were very friendly and the service was so quick! Food was delicious and great value for money. The music was also incredible! Would definitely recommend and go again.
Lovely tapas restaurant tucked away in the heart of theatre land. Delicious jug of sangria followed by the fluffiest croquettes stuffed with blue cheese, garlic prawns in butter and a tasty chick pea and feta salad. All served promptly with a smile, what better way to start off the evening?
Great food and friendly helpful staff. The manager was happy to help us with advice on how many tapas dishes to choose for our table of four people. House red wine was excellent.Will definitely go back again. Restaurant perfectly placed for meal before going to Prince Edward Theatre.
As always,we had delicious tapas,with friendly service,and refreshing cava sangrias,and all at excellent value on the Amazon local deal voucher,it is a great shame that Amazon local has now ceased doing this offer and is shutting down it's Amazon local deals on the 18th of December 2015.
The paella is very fresh and tasty. The value for price is really good. The tapas that we tried are very good as well, even though they're a little bit expensive. The sangria was very refreshing. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves Spanish food.
The food was tasty and especially good value when using the Groupon offer. We were a large party of 9 people and they staff coped very well with our order. It helped that we had already made our choices before hand and typed them up so that all we had to do was hand the list over to the staff. They ensured the food came out at the same time.
This wasn't a great experience. We had a selection of tapas (had a taste card), and most of them tasted like they were out the freezer. The meatballs were a bit like British pub food meat balls, not delicate spanish ones like you'd expect. The garlic bread was just three of those frozen baguette slices. You get the picture... Service was average, and even with the taste card 2 for 1, it was still quite expensive! Definitely better Tapas places in London, don't let the taste card tempt you to a sub-standard place!
Jamon Jamon is always packed and I know why. Great food at cheap prices, the wine too is very quaffable and well within budget. I would try the cod/cheesy combo (names escapes me) and the mushrooms, divine. and even though it's translation is 'Ham, ham' it's got loads of choice for non meat eaters.
Excellent! Very good food and decent portions for tapas. I was particularly impressed with the patatas which were made from very good quality potatoes.... I usually am not keen as they usually aren't at other tapas bars I have been to around the world!
Great food , superb atmosphere . Really looked after us. Wanted something a bit more authentic than the usual Michellene starred places and this totally lived up to it while still serving up amazing tapas . The grilled cod with peppers being our favourite.
Nice atmosphere, friendly waiters. Bit of a smell in the loos. We had the tapas; the garlic prawns were very good, The asparagus salad was crisp and large. Most of the food was just average, though. I didn't like the taste of the chorizo. Only 3 of us, using tastecard and the bill still came to 87 pounds. I probably wouldn't go again.
Really good food! Really good service! We had quite a large group with us - we ordered the 2 for 1 sangiras (which were delicious), the seafood paella, the chorizo paella, and assorted tapas and starters. Highly recommend this place to everyone
This was my second time eating here within a few months. Great for pre-theatre. Good food, and because it's tapas, easy to eat kight (if you want to) before a show. Wide selection, and I've yet to try something that wasn't delicious.
The paella was fantastic, therefore the long time waiting is worthful. Waiters are friendly. However it could be better if next time give us a reminder for the long waiting when we make the order. Nevertheless, wonderful dinner experience with my friend, surely we will go back for next time.
We enjoyed the dinner last night at Jamon Jamon Soho restaurant with our friends. It is a good restrant with nice staff and good foods!
JAMON JAMON SOHO has delicious tapas and friendly service as always,as well as very refreshing cava sangrias,and when JUAN the manager is on duty,exceptionally good service as well,and on the Amazon local voucher deal,excellent value,I can highly recommend this restaurant.
Very recommended place, not only good quality of food but also very nicely served. Seafood paella was very tasteful and as close as I never thought to the actual ones I had in Spain. Very happy with the friendly staff.
Delicious food, friendly service,and excellent value on the Groupon voucher deal,it is a pity that one is only allowed to buy three vouchers,as when Amazon local was doing the same deal,one could buy as many wouchers as one wanted.
Second time I've eaten at Jamon Jamon. Great food! Great staff! Great atmosphere! Can't wait to visit again! If you enjoy authentic Spanish food then this is the place to visit. Jamon Jamon, Caxton Walk off Charing Cross Road.
We really like this place! Excellent tapas and wine. Nice staff and cosy atmosphere. Very reasonable prices, high value for the money. We enjoyed it all! It was our third visit, and we will definately return at our next visit to London. Hanne & Jesper, Denmark.
Fantastic experience!!! Everything was perfect!!! I totally recommend this restaurant!!! The staff are all spanish, the food authentic and the atmosphere is great!! We had a flamenco show downstairs which was an amazing touch!! A must in London!!
Booked after searching with Quandoo, lovely place - great value food [large portions], very good service, was very quiet at lunchtime on a Wednesday so great opportunity to chat easily with my friends. Would definitely come back.
Few good point many bad, I'd avoid as there are many other places nearby. Two of us Went to the basement for drinks first. At the bar they said they'll come over to take out order. We were sitting therefor some 15 minutes so went up and ordered ourselves. The bar was pretty empty. The drinks took ages to arrive but were good when they arrived. Same again second round, both of us noticed a distinct lack of alcohol in the cocktails. Went up to the restaurant. Seated outside and menus given. 20 minutes later no one takes our order. We just walked down crompton road and found a fab restaurant
Good location, slightly off main thoroughfare. Friendly and efficient staff. Food was very good, good varied items on menu to suit all tastes. Slightly more than I would want to pay for tapas, but due to quality of food, can't really complain about that.
Great food, came out a few at a time which is always the best way to enjoy tapas although prawns were forgotten. Shame about the sangria. probably the worst we have tasted and it didn't get any better when we added more wine ourselves.
