We went there every day in the evening on our holiday for a cania (or two or three) of cerveza (beer) or vino tinto (red wine). Nibble included these cod croquettes which were delicious.

This place is just about forty metres from Sol in Calle Tetuan looked packed to overflowing when we went at 9pm, we had to fight our way through the crowds to get near the place, but when we went to the restaurant entrance just to the right we were ushered straight away most cordially into the small tapas/dining room. The service was laid back yet helpful and quick after ordering, but no pressure on how long the stay. The French family in the corner got through a full meal while we had two beers, two soft drinks, four fried cod pieces Bacalao), four fried cod/cheese croquettes and a couple of mini pasties (Empanadillas); total cost 20.90 Euros; we could have had the cheeses and local speciality ham, but we had had enough of those in our hotel. next time we will try the tuna tapas.
This Bar was the birth of Socialism in Spain in 1870something, so we took photos inside and out. Everybody was very friendly, including the Madrillena who sat next to us and explained all the dishes; the food is scrumptious, and is definitely on the list for when we go back.

The placed was always packed, but the food and drinks were not expensive, as a croquete costs € 0.85 and a double beer costs € 2.00. Just find a place and make your order, as the food was always warm and good.

Very famous in Madrid for the Cod Fish cakes, they are excellent (2º better in the world, 1º is in Portugal).
The Atmosphere is incredible.
It's very near the center on the "Puertas del Sol" zone.
