Excellent food, not to expensive and good and fast service. Friendly and welcoming staff. It's a small restaurant, so an reservation is a vice thing to do. Recommended for any typing travelers who are seeking an authentic spanish place to eat.

Our first night in Madrid and we found this great little place with tapas and wine. Exclusive and cute, the waiters are very helpful. Dont miss this in the SOL area, very close the Tapas St.Miguel.

Very good food, exceptional "ibérico de bellota" cured ham and meat, really tasty food and good value for money, I will certainly repeat each time I visit Madrid

My fiancé and I ate dinner here our first night in Madrid. The food was okay but was much more of a tourist trap spot than we anticipated - certainly not worthy of their current rating on TA. Perhaps we ordered the wrong items?? Not sure, but we had many more fantastic (and cheaper - by far!) meals in Madrid.... More

We had a nice dinner here. We had made a reservation earlier in the day and were glad we did. This cantina is apparently well known by tourists (maybe from Tripadvisor?). So even though we arrived at 8:30 -- too early for dinner, by local standards -- the place was full and those without reservations were being turned away. We... More

This restaurant is a great find. The food and service exceeded our expectations. The waiter recommended two dishes that we shared. One seafood and the other meat. Both were delicious. At the end of the meal we were given complimentary glasses of Panizo. We enjoyed ourselves and the food so much that we are going there tomorrow night.

Having walked along Calle Cava Baja and found nothing of interest, I stumbled upon this restaurant. I was so impressed with the friendliness and food at this restaurant that i actually ate here for both nights... More

I have gone from Barcelona to valencia then Madrid in 12 days and I must say this was the best restaurant I have been. I saw very good reviews so I decided to give it a shot. We were welcomed by a very cheerful Spanish man who have made us feel at home. After seeing the menu which is really... More

It wasn't just a fantastic food but it was an unforgettable experience! We were looking for a nice restaurant in LA LATINA and Ramon - most charm-full waiter - offered us jamon de bellota. Haven't tried such a good jamon before. After trying it we sat down and ordered the POLLO AL AJILLO. Huge plate... Delicious!! Meanwhile Ramon was there... More
