As our hotel was nearby I went there. If you love simple but good restaurant go there. You get Argentinian specialities and the waiter was really nice with us, we were mixing English/Spanish words as I do not speak yet fluently Spanish.... As I did not know the specialities, I asked him advices and he did perfectly.... Muchas gracias por... More

We were looking for a place to eat, and my partner found this listed on Yelp. It's located down a few streets and interesting alleys.....very evocative. I loved the look of the place before I even entered: low lights, small with an intimate arrangement of tables and a lovely old bar. We were greeted by the owner who could not... More

Saw a few reviews of this place on TA so decided to try on a recent trip to Madrid. It's small and I could have easily walked past had I not had a map handy. Feels very much like eating in someone's house. We had a hungering for some albondigas so ordered two plates however the waiter suggested we split... More

Very rarely do you find yourself in a restaurant for the first time and leave feeling like part of a private group of friends. But that was exactly the experience I had eating at Casa Federica last night. Arriving at 10 p.m., I found every table taken, but a few minutes later, a spot at the small bar opened up.... More

What a find! This place is SMALL, but don't let that fool you. We had albondigas and provolette. Yum! They speak decent English and were very friendly and willing to chat.

Quite possibly the best food I've had in Madrid thus far. The place is small abd cosy, we wre there at about 8PM, so, there weren't a lot of people there yet. The guy was nice enough to recommend what was good and to give suggestions on the best way to eat certain things. Super friendly and fast service. Most... More

This is a small place, but nicely spaced out tables and decor make it feel expansive and roomy. The servers and bartender were both very nice. You can feel that it is a family run place, it feels welcoming and the communication between the staff is based on nods and understandings that come from years of working together. As for... More

We have had lunch with our 2 years old there. The service is very nice and the food really good. The bunuelos were delicious,as well as the ensalada caprese. The cheese ham pie was also a good surprise with its sweet/salty taste. Save space for desert. Hard to choose which was better, my dulce de leche strawberry crepe, or the... More

My sister and I loved this place! We tried the Buñuelos de Espinacas and a variety of their empanadas (my favorite being the calabaza (pumpkin). We also tried the Tarta Glaseada de Jamón y Queso (ham and cheese tarta with a sweet topping, delicious!) We loved everything we had, including the drinks (try the caipirinhas).

Very small place (less than 10 tables) serving Argentinean food. Service was good (one cook staff and one waitress / bartender) - both were hard working and friendly. We were looking for something non tapas - this place fit the bill w a small varied menu. It had a very pleasant atmosphere w locals stopping by for a drink or... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
