We were staying in Malasana and happened upon the plaza this restaurant/bar faced. The passing parade was interesting m so we decided to stay for a while. We eventually found a table but found the service terrible from the start. No attention at all by...More

Adjacent to the well-regarded Ojalas, we thought this would be a safe bet on a Sunday afternoon. Sadly the service was desultory, the waiters preferring to stand near the door, smoking and chatting; and the food was really bad: 19.50 Euro for a plate of...More

The place is in a great spot, the idea is good, the staff is kinda friendly. The food is ok, something I could do at home, it took too long to get some toasts. The lemonade is good. Not planning on going any time soon,...More

We found this place accidentally and the menu on the window looked like a great variety. However, the menu we were given inside was different with less choice. We attempted to order 4 different tapas and they didn't have 3 of them in stock. Luckily...More

Found this searching TripAdvisor and no regrets. The place is small, cozy, and extra warm on a hot summer night but the food was totally worthwhile. Lots of vegetarian tapas choices and delicious with very good service. My family of 5 left full and happy....More

Been here several times now, the staff are very friendly, the food is delicious. Very typical Spanish food in a very traditional bar. There are good portion sizes and the prices are very reasonable. I particularly love the cazón and huevos rotos. The restaurant is...More

Great little tapas bar restaurant on a small square. Cramped and noisy - proper Spanish! but food, service and atmosphere make up for it. Great value place for a light meal or more. Frequented by lots of Spanish people!

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,
