It's a bar , it's a restaurant , it's packed weekends. Best chivito and unbelievably good potato tortilla. Enough said.

We had a great first night meal here, casual place with great ambiance and food. The toro was excellent. Good wine list. All very reasonable priced. Would definitely recommend.

I followed the recommendation of Lonely Planet guide and popped in for just one tapa - tortilla de patatas con cebolla confitada meaning half liquid potato tortilla with caramelised onion. And I admit it was delicious. That was my whole experience at Juana la Loca. At price of 4 euros it was the cheapest of their tapas (or pinchos should... More

And that´s not an easy thing to say with all the fierce competitors in that part of town. Went there with a Brit friend and he loved it. The place was packed on a Wednesday night and we had to wait for like 10 minutes as we did not have a reservation (so do). We had their "world famous Spanish... More

This is a meal and experience I treasure. The staff is friendly, kind and professional. The Location perfect. The suggested we move to the next table when it became available because the view was better. Wow ! they were not kidding, we looked down the street to perfectly lit Church. The food was truly one of the best meals I... More

Came here for dinner with three friends and am dying to go back! We split four tapas and two desserts and it was plenty to go around. The duck confit spring rolls, the blue crab "burger", and the gnocchi were my favorites! Absolutely delicious. I would recommend making reservations if you go during the weekend- the place was packed with... More

Juana la loca is known for its first-class tortilla, & indeed it was very good. We tried lots of different pintxos & most of them were delicious! The waiters were relaxed & good fun. We had a great time there, I'd recommend this restaurant to all of my friends.

Went here with two local colleagues who swore this was the best tapas in Madrid and they did not disappoint! The calamari was my favorite. Comes out lightly fried and they cut and mix it at the table in it's own ink. Goes from golden brown to black chunks of PURE CULINARY PERFECTION!!!

You must be very talented to find a bad place to eat in Madrid, but it doesn't take too much to find an average place. After living two years in Spain, you get to smell the average ones. Juana la Loca is not one of the. It is a very good tapas bar. We shared everything, we had anchoas, huevos... More

Neighborhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighborhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighborhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
