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....

My son and I happened upon this restaurant while looking for a place to get dinner. It is small and cozy. We ordered four dishes: Grilled Squid, Shrimp, Grilled Vegetables and Mango Ravioli. Each dish was absolutely delicious; this meal was definitely the culinary highlite of our trip to Madrid. We can't wait to come back! The staff was very... More
