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

This is part of a chain and i had eaten at the Valencia branch so i knew what to expext. There is a very good choice of tapas laid out along the bar in display containers. You get a plate and choose your tapas. Then order your drinks. The top tip is to be in there by about 8pm to... More

This Tapas resturant in Fuencarral.has original tapas with excellent quality raw materials, I would suggest the squid sausages and the revisited tortilla (depicted in photo on the left). Bathroom is very clean. Staff is educate and friendly. Value for money very good.

Although this place was definitely better last year (as others have remarked), Orio is still a fantastic place to go for tapas. Considering that tapas are said to originate from the Basque region, what better place to try them than at a Basque restaurant? The service is actually decent, the decor is great, and the ambiance is always an enjoyable... More

This is a basque pintxo (tapas) place. The variety of pintxos was much larger last summer. This summer we were disappointed. Hard to find chairs. One or two pintxos is ok not more. Try txacoli, the basque white wine with pintxos.

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.
