WHO? ​The opening of Spanish bar and restaurant Camino in Cruz del Rey (that's King's Cross to you or me) gives this up-and-coming destination a real fillip. Cantaloupe Group's Richard Bigg, co-owner of hot spots like Cargo and Market Place, brings his love affair with Spain to bear on this all-day concept. Chef Miguel Masero has been brought over from Barcelona to head up the kitchen.

ON THE MENU? ​All day dining, with short menus changing according to seasonal availability. Spanish snack bar treats include churros con chocolate, ‘bikinis' (toasted sandwiches), or huge steaks from the ‘parilla' with a big bottle of Spanish red. Jamon Iberico de Bellota de Jabugo; Chuletillas de Cordero (Romney Marsh Lamb Cutlets); Tarta de Santiago.

SIZE? ​200 bar capacity, 75 restaurant capacity, 20 in the courtyard.

STYLE? ​Quirky, with a large wall map of Spain there to be customised by customers with their own photos, beer mats, tickets etc. Brick walls, a 35m pewter bar, enamel signage, cutlery in recycled tin cans and rusty steel wire menu boards complete the shabby chic feel.

SPEND PER HEAD? ​£25

WINE LIST? ​From £14.50 to £39.50 a bottle

WHERE?​ 3 Varnishers Yard, Regent Quarter, King's Cross, London N1 020 7841 7330
