The place is very easy to find behind Puerta de la Sol square. It is open from 9:30 to 15:30(3:30pm) and from 17:30(5:30pm) to 23:00(11pm). Forget about everything else but:
1. Fried bacalau(€1.30) - piece of fried cod fish. The best fried fish we ever tried.
2. Croquetas(€0.85) - piece of fried cheese. Very crispy from outside and melting texture from inside. Delicious as hell :-)
3. Caña de Cerveza(€1.25) - a small size cup of beer. You may need two or three depending on the need.
According to Wiki "La Casa Labra is a bar-restaurant in Madrid located very close to the Puerta del Sol (Calle Tetuan, 12). The cover says its existence since 1860. It is famous for having been featured in the foundation of the Spanish Socialist Workers Party by Pablo Iglesias on May 2, 1879, which recalled by a plaque on the premises."
Be prepared to wait on line for the tapas and also to hustle a little bit for empty table outside.
The drinks are ordered at the bar but you can also order them from the waiter. The last ones are very friendly and always ready to serve you.
It is a place where one MUST visit during their stay in Madrid. We went there twice in one day and will go there again next time.
