I have come to this bar just behind El Prado museum and love the decor (quirky Spanish cash registers, religious relics, skeletons drinking beer). There are very few spaces to sit and often the service is mishap since it gets quite crowded but I keep coming back because the vibe is fantastic.

Small bar in front and very busy. Sangrias and small tapas standing. Back dining was reserved . Good start or end place.

The place is not to far from the Prado museum but you need to have a map in order to find it because it is in Small street. I discovered this place more than two years ago in a my previous trip to Madrid. At that time it was probably the only bar in the street. Now there are at... More

We tried this after reading about it in a DK travel book and ate at the bar. The tapas were good and so were the drinks. The decorations make it nore than just an average tapas joint. So many things to see, its just fun. Locals were friendly.

Busy tapas area the front may lead you to think the place was full! There is a nice, small area at the rear with dining tables. The staff were so friendly and helpful in the choice of food. We were really impressed by the plate of ham as well as a mix of selections between the four of us. Can't... More

Two visits. Standing in the small front bar just taking in the eclectic mix of bullfighting/ skeltons/ picasso etc at the front; pointing to the tapas that takes your fancy with a small beer- thats the way to do this bar. Our second visit felt not so good sitting down in small table area at the back as too busy... More

Stumbled in here as the other up the road (no name dropping here) was too crowded. Service was not really forthcoming. Eventually managed to order a bread slice topped with aioli and greasy baby eel looking things. Though not sure if they are baby eels (anyway would be pretty hard to catch, and unsustainable to say the least). Quaffed with... More

Reasonable selection of tapas in very small bar, truly a place to walk in, have a drink or two with a couple of tapas admire the Interesting decor and move on. The actual bar and tapas display was too small to be able to get near to when there are more than six people inside and therefore we had to... More

I notice there are alot of good reviews coming up here so maybe there has been a change of management or a change of approach i.e. serving nice food at reasonable prices instead of scamming tourists for 50 euro a time for some ham, cheese and prawns out a tin! Or maybe they just get their friends to post reviews!... More
