“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended to us, and was walking distance from where we were staying. Service was very fast, not the friendliest but quite efficient. We ordered 5 tapas between three people and it was more than enough. Favourites include the oxtail but the sirloin was overcooked and rubbery, and didn't really taste like anything except for the very sweet onion topping. Veal meatballs were tasty but a little too salty for our taste. In my opinion, there's better food to be found in Madrid though the atmosphere was nice and toilets were quite clean. Bill came to 30+ euros including a jar of sangria.

“Good value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

Surprised by how many great reviews this place gets. While there is nothing wrong with the food it's extremely average. Though not impressed by the food is quite reasonably priced but not worth going out of your way for.

“Couldn't fault anything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

We were recommended to go to Lateral by our tour guide and ended up absolutely loving it. Huge range of tapas, including lots of veggie options (hard to come by in Spain!) The atmosphere was lovely, very romantic, and the bill was very cheap for all the food and drink we got. Loved it!

“One of my favourite places in Madrid for Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

There is always a queue which must be a good sign!

Start your night with a Mojito while you wait for your table to be ready. Croquettes, jamon, mini hamburgers, patatas - each dish that arrives is delicious. The staff are so attentive it feels like they wait poised for you to take your last bite so they can bring your next plate. You are guaranteed to leave with with a full stomach which will make it more difficult to spend your afternoon shopping in Fuencarral :). To make things even more attractive the price of food is more than reasonable!

Ate here twice on a recent visit to Madrid. All the food we ordered was of a good standard. Wine was good. Nice atmosphere. Good choice for Madrid.
