We were recommended to go to the Casa Labra and loved it. Managed to get a table inside for 6 and just loved the croquettes, the ham, cheese, sherry, red wine .... in fact it was all terrific and only cost just 20 euros each for a blow out supper. Defo must not be missed.

This restaurant serves the best bacalao I have ever tasted. Our plan was to visit the bar, have some drinks and bacalao tapas as recommended by many. It was so crowded at the bar and the line was so long that we decided instead to go inside. We were so glad we did as the food was the best we've... More

Great food, good beer, amazing find - very popular on a Friday night but well worth a visit - just off Plaza del Sol which is very busy, but down a quiet side street and far enough away from the hustle & bustle.

We stumble upon Casa Labra by chance by taking a wrong street and decided to pop in for a drink. What we found was an old traditional bar that served great drinks and absolutely amazing Tapas! The croquetas were the best i've ever tasted anywhere in the world and the thick piece of Cod was both tasty and fresh (but... More

Classic place to come if you want a real Madrid experience. Grab a table outside or just stand next to a table then get your drinks served by waiters but you have to then go and join the queue for the speciality - chunks of fried cod, or cod croquettes priced about 1 euro a chunk. Great place for a... More

This historic tapas bar serves cod fish, so fresh that people stand in line to get it. It is located near the El Corte Ingles store located in the city center. Right around the corner from the Best Western Carlos V in which we stayed. My wife and I visited this bar several times during our trip to Madrid. We... More

There is nothing to dislike here - only that I would like to eat more but can't fit them in! The Croquettas here are famous and there are times when they are so busy they can't keep up with the demand. Lucky they have drinks to sip on while you wait. I am not sure which style of Croquettas are... More

Among hundreds and hundreds of bars in Madrid, I sincerely would never choose this one to try something. It's almost "abandoned" when you compare it to the bright new bars, and nothing attracts your attention, except for the sign reading "since 1860". But suddenly, at 6pm, lines begin get formed in front of a balcony and plates and more plates... More

Even portions are becoming smaller and smaller while prices are increasing still you should pay a visit there just to have one of the best draft vermouth in town and some excellent codfish tapas
