Great place to stop for a drink and tapas

Small little place on a very lively street. If you're tapas hopping on this street, Casa Lucas is one of your best choices for a few tapas. You can either order and eat at the bar or call i advance a book a table to take your time. The tapas are good, the service fast and friendly, and the place... read more

Piccolo locale rinomato per le tapas, frequentato da stranieri. Tocca aspettare per un tavolo. Lista dei vini al calice accettabile e tapas tradizionali di buona qualità ma quantitativamente meno generosi della media. Servizio veloce e affabile. This is a small tapas-bar, well known among the tourists. Tables are just few, if you have to wait you can drink a glass... More

Although I don't have toooooo much tapas experience to compare it to, it was one of my favourite meals of a 2 week trip through Spain and Portugal. We ordered the pork with carmalized onions and the tuna on toast (can't remember exactly what was under it). Both were exceptional. In addition, since our Spanish is definitely lacking, the servers... More

This place blew my mind! Incredible tapas that was served artfully and in a timely manner. The food was partially prepared at the table, which took the experience to the next level. The calamari with squid ink was exquisite. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody. My only reservation is the lack of dessert. Incredible restaurant, 5/5

Googled places to eat nearby my hotel and found this gem totally out of sheer luck of the draw. I had the calamari with squid ink....1/3 portion but it was enormous - easily served 2 people. And then the braised Oxtail - which was an excellent choice as well. The staff provided good - professional and knowledgable service and were... More

We decided on tapas, 2 cold, 2 hot, 2 beers and two glasses of wine for 41 euros. Service was excellent. We arrived shortly before 9 and got a seat for two... More

An amazing tapas restaurant in the heart of Madrid. Food was amazing definitely recommend the calamari but it was all delicious! Service was very attentive. They also went the extra mile for my friend who was allergic to nuts even writing her a Spanish note for future restaurants.

Gluten free tapas in a casual place, service was amazing. One of the best places we have been while in Madrid. Excellent food and not expensive at all.

Our first time and first night out in Madrid. We walked down the Calle de Cava Baja choosing a place to eat and liked the look of the menu and the crowd in this one. We were not disappointed. The tapas were great. Try the Mancha and the Alella, they are superb. Good portions - 4 tapas for 3 people... More

Very good tapas restaurant in Latinas barrio. They can offer gluten free food. The croquettas de jamon are fine but not the best ones. The Rioja was very good. A bit expensive. The service is very nice. A good address.

Staying in La Latina

Neighborhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighborhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighborhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
