Hasty service with fantastic food

Firstly let me say that it is difficult to find restaurants in Cava Baja where you can push a stroller through, much less eat with a little slurp-space (read breathing space). Toma Jamon looked delicious and welcoming. So we fidgeted in, saw the picture of the oxtail stew and pointed at it... read more

We had been walking for hours and decided it was time for a drink and bite to eat. Got some Jamon y Queso, which were fine. Waited an hour and got some terrible paella. Took one bite and asked for check and left. Waiters were awful and rude. Skip this place it is a tourist trap.

We popped in here quite late one evening for some tapas after seeing that it looked a really authentic venue. A glass of red and a glass of cava and some tortilla espanol set us up really well to browse the menu. We settles on fried pork with salted pimentos and Spanish potatoes with chorizo and eggs. While the latter... More

We loved this place, Great atmosphere and wonderful free Tapas. Just about summed up the chilled weekend we had in a not so sunny Madrid.

Juan and Miguel run a fantastic little bar with great ambience and delicious food. For a casual meal and drinks, sharing some laughs with the locals- this is the place to meet new friends.

Ordered the Jamon Iberico plate, bread de la casa and a plate of Manchego cheese. All were absolutely divine, literally cannot fault this place. Service was very friendly despite our knowledge of the lingo extending to 3 words! Come here and you won't be disappointed!

We ordered a plate of cheese and jamon ibercio (which is the famous acorn ham that you will find all over Madrid). It was fantastic. We were also brought tomato bread, which many tapa places give you. Toma Jamon had the best tomato bread I had in my whole stay. It was fantastic! Lastly we ordered the peppers, which were... More

This place pretends to be a typical place of spanish cuisine but it's far from it. As all the franchises it has normal cuality but laks of character and customer's attention. Prices correct.

The location is great. The food was ok. The service was decidedly lacking. It took thirty minutes for a waiter to come take our order. When my girlfriend gave them her card, explaining her dietary restrictions (the same card which worked with 100% efficacy everywhere else in Spain for the prior two weeks), they nodded, and proceeded to not bring...

We had tapas for lunch here. Sweetest shrimp I have had. Nothing unusual but really good and loved the smile on the man at the door!

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.
