Great tapa bar, chain

This is a Basque tapa bar named after the style of Basque long boats that hang from the ceiling of each restaurant. Here as is typical of these types of bar/ restaurants you can pick the tapas from small plates on the bar counter and at the end pay by counting how many toothpicks are on your... read more

We went here with two of my husband's cousins for dinner. Very nice casual self-service place where you pick out which pinchos you want and they count the toothpicks at the end to bill you. The pinchos were really good and they had a great variety of different combinations and flavors. The only thing missing was pulpo (octopus) which I... More

This was a very atmospheric place where you get a drink of whatever it is you fancy and simply go and help yourself to as many of the Tapas that takes your fancy. There are cocktail sticks in most of them and some are on tiny dishes. At the end of the session, the waiter will come ant total up... More

This is a typical tapas bar, San Sebastian style. Tapas are all displayed at the counters. Different types and something for everyone. All visually appealing as well as delicious. Don't miss the chorizo when available. Plain to look at but delicious in taste. Have several pieces of these inexpensive bites with a drink and you have made yourself a meal.... More

Great fish soup, delicious desserts, friendly staff, cozy and vivid athmosphere, nice tables. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who prefers Spanish and Basque cuisine. The place is not cheap, but it's worth the money.

This establishment is a chain but for us was a nice way to get started with the intro to tapas. We went out on a late Saturday night looking for drinks and bites to try and ran into this location. We weren't able to get a table to sit and enjoy the meal, so in stead we stood at the... More

Staying in Malasana

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.
