Accommodating to foreigners... They even humoured our attempts to speak Spanish. All dishes looked and tasted amazing. Duck confit especially incredible. Very busy, but the staff coped superbly. Excellent atmosphere & decent value for money if you pick the right things.

If you want tapas with a modern twist there is nowhere better in town. Excellent value and friendly service too. Dinner for two and several beers for less than 35 euros a head. Each dish a revelation.

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
