After walking way too much, having taken the longest possible route from the Prado to Malasana, we stumbled upon Bar Amor and are we glad we did. Local, local,local. Very small, maybe 10 tables and cozy on a December afternoon. Super friendly staff, very helpful. They work with a prix fix daily... read more

We loved the funky space, and the menu was a great value. The food was great (I thought the squid option that day was particularly well seasoned)! I appreciated that the restaurant posts the daily menu on facebook so you can check it out before venturing out!

We rented an apartment near this restaurant for three weeks, and we probably had dinner here five times. Absolutely everything we tried was wonderful (except the croquettes, and we haven't found any we liked anywhere). We loved their house salad, the entree of Iberian surprise (like a tasty skirt steak-really well-prepared), and their version of the Spanish dessert with quince... More

The quality of the ingredients was really good. The portions are small except from the gazpachos and the soups, but the cooking is very simple but done with great sense of taste.Dessert was not as good as the main meal. Service is kind but not specially quick.

Very good for lunch. Serving traditional Madrid food with a twist, two options for starter and two for main course. Recommended.

Great service, food and atmosphere, well worth a visit. A modern take on Spanish food in a great neighborhood.

Whilst on a quest to try as many tapas bars as possible in a couple of days in Madrid, we came across Bar Amor on the second night. Suffice to say, we stayed there all night! Top tapas, good (changed regularly) selection of wines by the "copa" and friendly staff. What more do you want?

I really want to like this place. It's cozy, cute & on 1 of my favorite streets in Madrid. Too bad that's about all it has going for it. I've been to Bar Amor twice for the menu of the day. The first time, the food was mediocre. I decided to give it another go & can now say with... More

it's a pity that the extreamly nice staff have to serve a food so ordinary for high prices in a very nice atmosphere. great for a beer, but please spend your money for good food somewhere else....

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.
