Great tapas bar if you´re located in Barrio de Salamanca

It´s very popular among locals so you need to be awake and don´t expect servers to approach and ask how everything is going; I mean you need to be proactive to be attended. Tapas are great and also raciones (big tapas) are generous. They´ve recently moved a few meters far from the old location.

A very warm and typically Spanish decor. Many side dishes came with the menu, the food was excellent, difficult to stop eating! Excellent wines and the staff were very friendly and efficient (even for a group of 20 that we were)!

We had high expectations after the hotel recommended it and the room is very nice. We had to ask repeatedly for water and we had to ask to order wine, which arrived after the appetizers. Grrrrr. The "Soggy Rice with Lobster" also has clams and shrimp but that's not disclosed on the menu. The "lobster" was virtually meatless pieces of... More

The food is excellent - a wide selection of tapas on the menu, plus you can pick some specials from the glass display. The place was buzzing even though we arrived early (8:30) - plenty of locals plus visiting non-Spanish business types plus some tourists. The staff were very helpful and patient with my minimalist Spanish - the waitress spoke... More

On a recent trip to Madrid we had both dinner and lunch in the restaurant upstairs. Both times the food, service and ambiance were excellent. The prices are not bad either. Very much worth a visit if you want to eat well whilst in Madrid. There is also a nice bar area and downstairs they have a taverna for tappas.

First night I went to the restaurant. Not so good, not so bad (except for the tiramisu: I did not like it at all, and left it there. The restaurant is a little pretentious to my taste). Now, then the next night I went to the tapas place (same block, just a couple of meters from the restaurant). Waiters are... More

Very good place for tapas in Madrid center. Price ratio very good. Do not GO without trying the COD... It is amazing. Tapas can't be better.

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
