Great pintxos

We eat here regularly, always the pintxos with a drink. We've never eaten upstairs in the restaurant area. On the ground floor you share tall tables and chose from the good range of pintxos which are some of the best we have eaten in Madrid. The staff are always very friendly and will bring a... read more

I've eaten several times at the Barcelona restaurant and the pinxtos there are quite good as is the menu. However made the mistake of ordering the salad which was nothing than a huge plate of iceberg lettuce swimming in vinegar with a few slices of tuna and tasteless Tomatoes. Such a disappoint, this could easily be a simple yet tasty... More

Lots of variety, great service. If you are sitting a waitress is going around with different selections and you can choose. If possible will defiantly return.

The ground floor is full of locals for tapas. Upper floor restaurant is disappointing and expensive. Fish soup small, salty, and with little seafood for 16 euros. Oysters are 3 euros each. Only saw other tourists upstairs. The locals seem to know to stay downstairs.

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 plate. Not very...

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

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.
