Nice modern bar/restaurant. We didn’t eat however the beer selection was nice and service was good. Unfortunately it was very quiet so not much atmosphere however it deserves more visitors

I have been to places with more beers but never a place where nearly every beer was enjoyable. Even beer types I don't love, they had a solid version. Tapas dinner was the best meal experience I had in years. The night manager was serving us personally and took great care of us. Returned several times!

I was visiting another restaurant and mentioned I was looking for a place that had a great micro-brew selection and they gave me a card for El Sainete. Once I arrived I was pleased to find a great beer selection. Highly recommend.

El Sainete was a great restaurant we stumbled upon as we were wandering around the magnificent La Latina neighbourhood.
This s a great looking restaurant with a lovely look to it,great decor and furnishings and plenty of seating options spread throughout this restaurant ,staff here are really nice and make you feel so welcomed in their restaurant,they even have a beer sommelier who can recommend what craft beer would best compliment your meal,a really great concept in my opinion.
This restaurant offers a great meal menu and superb craft beers and is an extremely popular restaurant.
On our visit we were only here for beers as we had just ate,a very pleasant member of staff who spoke great English gave us a run through on some of their great beers ,about extremely knowledgeable young man he recommended a couple of Spanish IPA beers that had been very popular in this restaurant and so it proved.
The beers recommended to us were outstandingly good, hoppy,tasty and bursting with flavour, the beers were such a joy to drink in such a fine establishment,as much as I enjoy the local brews such as Mahou beer and San Miguel beer it's just so good sampling a well crafted beer and these beers we were served in here were quality.
We really enjoyed our beers in here and although we only stayed for the one beer each before we moved on for a first time visit we were very impressed with El Sainete.
Very easy to locate on Calle Segovia in the La Latino neighbourhood which is an area teeming with pubs, bars and restaurants and some amazing architecture and a major tourist destination.
Opening hours are;
Monday to Wednesday, 1pm till Midnight.
Thursday to Saturday, 1pm till 1am.
Sunday, 11am till 11pm.
A great restaurant and bar and well worth a visit.

We popped in on our beer hunt and looked at the food, which was appealing, but being Madrid the restaurant opened later than we would expect in the UK so we tried some beers, including the taster selection (Great idea) We resolved to return and di the next day for dinner. The food was art and craft on a plate, well cooked and very tasty if somewhat more expensive than others in the area, but worth it. Sommelier on tap to pair your beer with food if required and great service. Quirky subterranean restaurant and very modern clinical bar above. Loved it and will be back
