This was the place I decided on after reading rave reviews of tapas places near our hotel. It was a fun, happening place with a lively atmosphere and folks having a good time. We lucked out without having to wait for a table around 10pm on a Thursday night. I think the food was just average, however. The paella was... More

Just ate here. Every protein in the paella stunk (literally) and was dry. It looks like a locals bar. Maybe it was our mistake for getting food?

As this was quite close to our hotel we spent our first night here. The tapas was good although we made a poor choice with the cold meats as the plate was enormous and therefore we had had our fill of cold meats for the full holiday. Would visit again and choose more carefully.

Friendly staff; busy with locals; tapas given with each drink (little sausages and bread sticks or jamon and bread sticks). Reasonable drink prices.

We had diinner here during a trip to Madrid. The restaurant is easy to find near the Peurta del Sol. There is a bar and a few tables. It was very busy, but we were early (for Madrid, about 7:30 PM) and were able to get a table. Within a half an hour , the restaurant was very busy. The... More

Every year myself and my friends have a weekend away and this is the best bar, among 100's, we have visited. Staff were superb, although obviously we were only there for a short time they treated us as if we might be clients for years, tapas was wonderful and when we said we could eat no more they gave us...

This is a great little tapas bar which is almost a restaurant given it offers tables to sit at as well as the bar side experience. It is small, the decor rustic and like all good real Spanish tapas bars, very noisy when it is in full swing but isn't this what we are really wanting to experience whilst in... More

I went with my boyfriend to have dinner at La Soberbia on September 11th. We ate tortilla and callamaris. It was delicious but after 4hour time we started to feel sick. To resume, we were infected by Salmonela bacteria propably by the eggs from the tortilla. We almost died in Madrid since they treated it as a virus. So on... More

This was our third of fourth visit to this little gem near Puerta del Sol and it has, thankfully, not changed a bit. A friendly welcome and rustic surroundings create a great charm. We have only been in for a drink but the free tapas with each drink have been quite substantial in themselves. Very good value in authentic surroundings.
