Great little place to have tapas at lunch. Very inexpensive but great food! This is just a hole-in-the-wall restaurant that has great small plates.

I've been in madrid for nearly 4 months, I have visited this establishment 5 times. There service has gotten worse each time, and this week was honestly appalling. The waiter I received had to be the rudest employee I have come across in madrid so far, firstly his tone of voice was disrespectful, then he didn't properly seat us, making... More

We enjoyed all of the small plates! Each one was better than the last. The desert was especially good!

My local friend asked me to meet her here for lunch and am I glad she did. The offer your typical selection of tapas, burgers and salads but with a chic touch.

When we were in Madrid a few years back, we liked this restaurant (and it's sister location in Plaza Santa Ana) so much we ate there multiple times. Unfortunately, it hasn't been able to keep up to it's former levels. Service was brusque and impersonal, and the food is nothing special. Considering how many great places there are to eat... More

We came here on our first night in Madrid on recommendation of our hotel. Its just off a main shopping street and, on the night we were there, very busy. We had to wait for a table but only for about 5 minutes. We had five different tapas and we enjoyed some more than others. There was an especially good... More

Lateral on Calle Fuencarral was literally a two minute walk from our apartment in Madrid. We stopped off here at about 20:00 in the evening for a quick drink and some croquetas, but then decided to stay and have tapas for dinner. Knowing that Lateral was a small chain of around five restaurants in Madrid and one in Barcelona, we... More

The tapas here were fantastic! My friend who lives in Madrid took us here as it is one of her favorite spots and we loved it for a quick lunch spot. All our food arrived quick, as did the cocktails, and everything was delicious!

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
