Great service, good priced drinks. Great atmosphere and extremely friendly staff. We only had drinks here but service was amazing with continual filling our plates with nibblies.

Looks amazing from the outside, slightly scruffy on the inside walls covered in prints and photos and artefacts. Slightly off putting seeing a print of Franco but it’s part of Spain’s history. You walk into a bar with a restaurant on the other side of...More

We ate in about 5 tapas bars and this was my favourite. There were 2 of us and we ordered the tapas meal for 2 people. This worked our well for us as we are not that experienced with tapas. It was very filling.

We had a good selection of tapas and good wine together in this slightly scruffy restaurant. Service was OK and the food good, hot and good size. Not the best in Madrid but certainly not the worst.

Food is ok if you don't mind eating under a picture with the fascist spanish dictator Francisco Franco

Beautiful exterior and cosy inside. Went twice during our trip. First was just for a drink. Second time for some food. Unfortunately after being seated for over ten mins no one seemed interested in taking our order so we left. Maybe next time.

We eventually settled in La Chata after our fruitless trek up the length of Cava Baja, our disappointing experience at El Bonanno, and our despondent return back down past the empty bars of this supposedly lively street! La Chata is a pleasant enough place, the...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
