Though it was crowded (during one of the world cup matches), but we were seated and helped pretty quickly. The tapas were lovely, especially the iberico one and the eggs with truffle, though they are not very cheap (high quality food=high price applies here). The tapas' price is varied between 4-16 euro. The place also has a great vibe.

The place looks like any other tapas bar in Madrid but do not be fooled. This place delivers very sophisticated dishes based on high quality raw products and a rather elaborated cooking proccess. The outcome is esplendid, i was certainly not expecting such a dinning experience from a place like this. I recommend it if you are looking to impress... More

Arrived at 7:00 pm when it opened. Could only order from "cold menu". Duck confit was the best. At 8:00 we then got recommendations that were not on the menu. All were excellent. The dessert called Volcano con dulce con leche helado de platano was a great way to end the evening. Local wines were recommended by staff. Outstanding experience... More

This restaurant has the most delicious slow roasted suckling pig, tortillas, salads and tapas. Lively atmosphere and gets very busy from 8pm. We tried their lemon tartlet which was very light and yummy, they speak English and are very helpful, good service and not expensive. Well worth a visit.

We read on a book a nice review of Juana La Loca. But its much better when you are there. Nice bar atmosphere, nice beer and excellent tapas! Small Gnocci al Gorgonzola, Hamburguesita de carne, tortillas and many others. But the best was about to come... They have a Dulce de Leche Vulcan with Banana Ice Cream that is absolute... More

Juana la loca was recommended by a friend and it surpassed all expectations. Some of the most exquisite food I've tasted, with impeccable presentation. The staff were extremely friendly/attentive. I highly recommend the tortilla & tempura soft shell crab, along with the razor clams! No other tapas in Madrid compares. There was a lovely ambiance, even waiting to be seated... More

Went here for the tortilla espanola, which was excellent, but was also delighted to find that they serve Cochinillo (suckling pig), and do an excellent job of it. Not the cheapest place in Madrid, but with the reputation they have, and the quality of the food, they can certainly charge a premium

Lived up to the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Exquisite flavours and presentation with each tapa. The service was very friendly and attentive. As noted by other reviewers, the cost is higher than others but mostly well worth it.

Everything that we tried was good - we had a mixture if their daily specials including razor clams, sardines and a fried egg with sausage as well as their tortilla. The suckling pig was also delicious - the skin was lovely and crispy and it was a massive portion! Desserts weren't quite as good but I would def return!
