Kamique Bar Review
Top 10 things we learnt about Kamique Bar when we visited:
1) It is actually possible to find a seat in a Covent Garden/Leicester Square bar. Either choose Kamique’s busy bar area - shiny tiles, exposed brickwork, chatty after work crowd - or its cosy dining area, where red velveteen cushioned walls, a dark oil canvas, and chintzy lampshades are perfect decorative precursors to the pre-theatre dinner brigade.
2) Newbie Kamique is from the people behind Jamies wine bars.
3) With a 5-7pm £12.95 pre-theatre dinner menu and a slap-bang West End location, Kamique provides quick bites before you get all thespy. Although Kamique is keen to establish itself as a bar first and foremost…
4) …which is just as well when the food is average, at best. Our lacklustre Kamique platter had a disproportionate amount of cheap filler prawn crackers to its £14.95 price; only one chicken Yakitori skewer each and bland duck and spring rolls. Mains, meanwhile - mango and prawn salad, and soy-glazed salmon steak - were sweet enough to deserve a place on the dessert menu.
5) Drinks are MUCH better. Kamique has 12 delicious mojitos on its menu, some costing just £4.50 between 5-8pm.
6) Flaming cocktails are the best. £7.40 for a passion fruit and Havana rum mojito garnished with a passion fruit half doused in yet more alcohol and fire.
7) Not all mojitos are made with rum, apparently. The Pimms mojito contains Pimms, vodka and elderflower syrup; it’s a little bewildering how this is still classed as a mojito but who cares, it has way more punch then your typical Robinsons squash-style, diluted pub Pimms.
8) The staff are incredibly friendly. Our waitress Preye was chatty, helpful and charming, complying with our air con on/off requests without a fuss.
9) There are two sides to every central London bar. Much as punters would like to sip mojitos at 11.30am on a Tuesday, our working lives (not to mention our livers and general outlook on life) demand we don’t. Comfy mahogany-sheen leather sofas and colour pop cushions are the ideal surroundings for a mid-morning coffee but come the evening, revellers will be sofa shuffling to old school Bobby Brown.
10) Tasty, affordable cocktails are a winner. Forgive Kamique its average food and revel in mojito madness. That’s without even starting on the rest of the cocktail menu....read more
