Setting the scene...
You could go to Argentina for the best steaks in the world, or you could just come to Caminito, in Northampton. Caminito Argentinean Steakhouse isn't like an ordinary steakhouse. In fact, you'll know that even before you step inside. Just follow your nose. That's the smell of the wood fired grill. Of apple, oak, and maple smoke mingling with thick, beautifully marbled, hand-cut steaks.
What makes these steaks the best you'll ever eat? It's the wood smoke. It's the coarse sea salt. Pretty basic, but it's an art form. The heat has to be exactly right on the grill. Too low and the steak will steam. Too high and the smoke won't permeate the meat. In Argentina, when the grill man does his job just right, they actually applaud him. Don't worry, you don't have to do that here. No, sit back and enjoy a glass of Argentinean wine that's as smokey in the bottle as the steak is on your plate. Red wine and red meat, salt and fire, elegance in simplicity.
That's an evening, that's a meal to be remembered!

Live music at Caminito...
At Caminito we believe that the right music can elevate the restaurant atmosphere, from simply above average, to exceptional. However it can't be just any old music, it has to pair well with the overall vibe of the dining room. When this happens you will not find the music to be intrusive or too loud, but rather something that enhances the ambiance, conversation, and mood.
It is for these reasons that we have long featured an acoustic Spanish guitar soloist as our primary form of live music. Alvaro Olvera Sanchez have been playing at Caminito for over three years, and they know just how to take a memorable evening of dining, and elevate it to an extraordinary restaurant experience. Alvaro plays with a very soulful, Central American, flamenco style Thursdays and Saturdays.
When you enter the dining room of Caminito for the first time, you will be immediately greeted with the smell of the wood fire, and the sound of the acoustic guitar. If you haven't fallen in love yet, you are about to. Soft, Spanish, classical, yet slightly flamenco infused guitar notes are what you will hear every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings from 7-9.
We are sure that after you hear it, and pair it with our wood-fired cuisine, you will believe that Our Spanish guitar playing is the perfect background music for dining in an Argentinean Steakhouse!
