This is my second time to this restaurant in as many visits to Madrid. Still the best place to enjoy simple but awesome food! We had to leave to the airport at 9:15 pm, and this restaurant opens for dinner at 8:30. Well, we waited...More

Came here with friends, mainly trying to visit Calle cava Baja. The place we planned to go was packed as crazy, this one was full but not as insane Decoration is exotic both outside and inside. Waitress was very friendly, spoke good enough English, we...More

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

Its La Latina, so its a mix of places targeting tourist and those catering to the locals - this is one of the locals that is just away from the heady tourist centre of La Latina. Fried Red Mullet (salmonete) and the Fried Calamares -...More

Last year I was in Madrid and for bad luck we choose this restaurant to dinner. Should have been a good restaurant 30 years ago but not anymore. The decoration looks tipycal but the food is a totally disaster. An entrance of potatoes full of...More

One of my absolute favourite places to have raciones (tapas servings) in Madrid. And I've tried quite a few! Full of locals enjoying a Night out. Try the cheese plate. And the croquetas. And the Bulls tails! And remember to check out the cool tile-facade...More

My husband and i stopped in for a wine and tapa, drawn in by the lovely Spanish tiling at its entrance. Its a lively place with a dining room bigger than the bar space. We stood at a bar rail drinking vino tinto and eating...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
