Discreet yet AMAZING and just off the beaten track

I never write these review things, but something about this place compels me. How discreet the street, how discreet the place... but how amazing the food AND the price. Tastefully done remodeling of the old ground floor, lovely service, cool music too. The five of us shared the bacalao a bras, the... read more

Went here as really close by to our apartment. Served relatively quickly and the food was cheap with big portions and delicious. Plus we received a free tapa each and some sorbet once the bill was paid. Well worth a visit!

Stopped in while we had some time to kill. Food is a little pricey, but drinks are cheap! A lot of options of glasses of wine <2€. Also gave us a free shot with our check!

Took a couple of beers, nice service, excellent music and good appetizers. A little hidden but still in the city center

Innovative. Tasty. Friendly. Reasonable! One of our better meals while in Madrid. Pig cheeks. Salad. Italian veggies. Mushrooms. Glad to have tried this place.

Great place to have lunch after visiting queen sophia museum. Slightly out of the very heart of Madrid, dishes are excellent and waiters very kind. We found the bar thanks to Trip when looking for a place to eat after visiting Queen Sophia Museum, and we shall admit this is the perfect combo!

Recently, while traveling around Europe, I stayed a week in Lavapiés, my favorite neighborhood in Madrid. I love the friendliness, authenticity and general feeling that the area communicates. Lavapiés is one of those places where visitors can get to see how the real "Madrileño" lives. It's neighbors of different ages, economic status and sophistication are friendly to visitors. They easily... More

One if our favorite meals in Madrid. Great location near Reina Sophia. We sampled many dishes and had a bottle of wine for a very reasonable price. Food was fresh and creative. The mushrooms were fabulous and so were the pork cheeks. The place was quiet when we visited but the service was great with lots extra treats while we... More

A little hole in the wall type of place that is really cozy with good drinks and small eats that you can enjoy. Right off the main street of calle Atocha, but really a smaller feel once inside. Reasonable prices and affordable wines.

Staying in Lavapies

Neighborhood Profile
Lavapies
Walking into this neighborhood is like entering a different country ... except it's hard to tell which one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in traditional African clothing convene outside their businesses for long chats, and people shout to each other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighborhood.
