Small but very nice resaurant. The food was good but the service even better! Staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make sure you enjoyed your visit.

Their croquetas (for which they are known) were ok and unique flavoured, but the rest of the dishes we had not so much. Quite crowded and not in a nice-center-of-Madrid-tapas-around-the-bar way, but rather small space with too many tables, trying to fit too many people...More

Tapas menu looks fairly typical but the food is much below average and also overpriced. Very disappointing, lots of better options nearby but we made a mistake. Avoid.

We had the croquetas mixta, ensalada de tomate and entrecot de Buey. The quality of the food was less then average Also the service was not as expected. English is a problem (like in many places in Madrid)

I've been twice now with a large group. Great atmosphere and a large range of food. To be honest this whole street is lined with great places but this is my favourite.

Do not enter this ghastly place, which is actually called Taberna (not "Bar") Salamanca. The food is appalling - the "chef" can't even make proper huevos rotos con jamón - and grossly overpriced, the staff just plain nasty BUT stupid ignorant tourists are packed into...More

Made a mistake. It is a tourist trap. The food was basic, overpriced and poorly served. We had excellent food elsewhere in this street of small traditional restraints and tapas bars. Bar Salamanca looks similar from the outside but "cheese" at 8.5 euros was just...More

Lovely, authentic spanish restaurant in the heart of La Latina. Madrid-style squid with pepper and olive oil is incredible! Good prices of drinks too. Place is very busy most of the time, but you just need to patiently wait at the bar.

Our family of 4 (including 2 teenagers) came across this busy Tapas bar whilst looking for a restaurant on a very busy Friday night. This is a very small bar with a few tables upstairs. We ate a good mix of Spanish Tapas to share...More

La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique
personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly
old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among
charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like
yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is
characterized by a young population and a bohemian
vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection
of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other
