Located a few minutes walk from the Reina Sofia, this easy going intimate bar had great food. This place has the right balance between casual and calm, we felt welcome within minutes. The service was easygoing, yet attentive, at ease yet in total control of his place. The sausage platter, Bacalao in tomato sauce (salmarejo) and Prawn tempura were delicious.... More

This place is quaint and delicious. The server was very patient with me even though I don't speak Spanish. Perfect spot to stop before visiting Centro de Arte Reina Sofia!

Dinner here was delicious and with huge portion sizes! They paced the meal well and it was a very relaxing meal. The server knew a lot about their wine offerings and made great suggestions. They were so nice!

Juanjo really made our Xmas group dinner happen -not only was he very helpful at putting together a nice menu that everybody would like, but also took great care to ensure that the little ones had a bite for themselves.. La Curruteka is a place that I would def recommend!

We chose to try this bar/restaurant based on other Tripadvisor reviews. So glad we did! The food was amazing - delicious taste and beautiful presentation. We took our server's recommendations and ordered pork cheeks in red wine sauce, a house salad (with mixed greens, jamon, pine nuts and a mustard dressing), sautéed mushrooms, and brie with blueberries. All dishes were... More

This was such a warm welcome fresh off the plane (after being re-routed and loosing my luggage too). The staff was really friendly and one of the bartenders was kind enough to come over and speak fluently in English for me. I had the set menu for lunch at 8.50 and it was a tremendous feast of local wine, salad,... More

Great food and great service. So far I'm 3/3 trusting TripAdvisor for restaurants for our time in Madrid. You wont be disappointed here. Glasses of good wine for under 2 euros amd some awesome small plates. Our bartender knew enough English to complement my wife's high school/college spanish. The menu also had English descriptions for every item. Cool atmosphere.
