Trendy place with tasty food

We popped in there to try one of the dishes recommended on TA. Jabali con alioli de miel (wild boar with honey alioli) was simply amazing. My wife had grilled, bit spicy langostinos which were also very tasty. Place has some unusual decor with some installations on the walls. Our impression... read more

We went to Madrid for our honeymoon. We found this place in Fodor's book! I was little skeptical but it was better than I could ever imagine. It was so amazing that we cancelled our reservation for the next night and went here again. Every single item we ordered both nights was so delicious. If we are ever lucky enough... More

The restaurant is located in the very stylish neighborhood of Bilbao, with a very local feeling. The place is small, has a very hipster feeling; service was great. The food was presented very well and the combination of flavors amazing. Must try their croquetas.

This dinner was by far one of the best meals I've ever had! Loved the atmosphere as the people who worked here. The people who worked here didn't speak English, for me this was only part of the charm, the staff was however very friendly and put a lot of effort in explaining. If you wanna try one of the...

I really don't like eating alone. The food here was delicious and imaginative but I was not much more than 30 minutes here. I felt a real oddity on my own. Maybe it's me, maybe the hipster waiting staff (no offence hipsters, I love you in Dublin). Bring a friend and enjoy the food .

We had been having so many traditional tapas up to this point we were looking for a fresh take on tapas and after a quick search online this restaurant was something we found. We were not disappointed. The waitress was very friendly and welcoming. The food was definitely a modern take on tapas and we enjoyed it a lot. Our... More

This is a tapas restaurant , the food is good and the service was first rate.Lolo, maybe the manager helped us with the menu and he was so patient and cheerful. The restaurant is also very good value and would have no hesitation in recommending to other English visitors to Madrid. At night the kitchen does not open to 8:30... More

Neighborhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
