They kept things coming for us the whole evening and we weren't disappointed. It all sounds a little crazy, seriously, who would mix Spanish tomato sauce with fried egg and honey, but when you give it a try it is unbelievably tasty! An evening for two cost us about 60 euros, (food, dessert & drinks included)

We went on a Thursday night in August and the place was packed. Even so, the waiters did a fantastic job keeping up with all the orders. The tapas are delicious and a bit more exotic than a lot of the typical places.

We were blown away by this restaurant. It's a hole in the wall in la Latina, with amazing food, great tinto de Verano & even better service. Crowded with beautiful people eating, drinking & enjoying life. Must eat here in Madrid. Must!!!

We're NYC based foodies and this was a simply outstanding meal. So good that we went 2 nights in a row. Where to start: It's a beautifully elegant place which gets crowded fast but manages to deal with the crowds and deliver charming and efficient service as well. Each dish had sublime flavors: things like poached egg and black truffle... More

You cant leave without trying the tortilla española, a staple in this place. Although service isn't great (but "where in spain it ain't?"), they compensate with the really good quality of food. A must if you are around this neighborhood.

This tapas bar located in La Latina quarter offers high quality products, wonderfully cooked. Everything we ate (bull tail, gnocchi, risotto and croquetas, enough for a 3-people meal) was amazing. Though it is not a cheap place, it is worth a visit.

The Tapas are extremely inventive and with amazing flavours - vegetables carpaccios, truffle-infused dishes and new spins on beloved favourites. After a dinner... More

We came here for a few small dishes and a highly rated dessert. My friends had been here several times and wanted to show me the place. It was a nice pleasant, cosy style restaurant. The food was very good and good value. The dulce du leche volcano pudding with banana ice cream was one of the best desserts i... More

We were recommended this place by our tour guide and what a find. The staff were so helpful and friendly and the food matched the best we have in Sydney. A short walk from plaza mayor and off the tourist strip. Great value also.

I'd seen a travel show highlighting this restaurant and decided to go based on the more traditional tapas (tortilla, huevos rotos, etc.). However, the stand out dish was the eggplant and zucchini carpaccio with pumpkin seeds. The taste was deliciously smoky, the vegetables were incredibly fresh and thankfully I didn't feel heavy/uncomfortably full after devouring the entire dish.
