For a good casual dinner around the corner or just up the street, these are a few of our top choices.
9 - Andy’s Taverna
This is our favourite Greek restaurant in the area! Established in 1967 and located in the heart of Camden, the casual family owned and run eatery serves the best food with the friendliest service. Delicious meze and if you love Kleftiko you will be happy you went, and it’s budget-friendly too. Tell them we sent you.
10 - La Patagonia
La Patagonia is a family-run traditional Argentine restaurant in the heart of Camden. The barrio-style venue serves a wide range of classic dishes from the grill, as well as fresh milanesas (escalopes) and chorizo sausages. Apart from Argentine premium cuts of sirloin, rib eye and lomo, there are also “asado de tira”, skirt steak (entraña), pork neck fillet (bondiola) and lamb steaks, as well as a premium selection of some of the greatest wines from Mendoza and La Patagonia.
11 - Daphne’s Taverna
Established in 1984 and run by the Lymbouri family, this smart, comfortable and cosy restaurant has a relaxing Mediterranean atmosphere, with walls covered in photographs depicting life in late 19th-century Cyprus. In addition to an extensive menu featuring charcoal grills and fresh fish, Daphne has several speciality dishes to choose from every day. The respectable reasonably priced wine list includes wines from Greece, Cyprus, France and the New World.
12 - KOKO Café
Funky and vibey, KOKO Café has a good selection of pizzas accompanied by live music on weekends. It’s a fab place to meet with friends over a cocktail.
Ask at the Mirabilis desk if they’re running any specials when you go.
13 - The Blues Kitchen
Another cool vibey spot on Camden High Street, offering a good range of beers, wines, and cocktails serving American-style barbeque, buttermilk fried chicken, burgers, mac n’ cheese, ribs and more. With live music, some nights it can get a bit crowded, so it’s a good idea to book a table or pop in for a drink at the bar to check out the scene.
