We went to this restaurant with a huge group of about 150 conference go-ears. Expecting "mass-grub", we were wonderfully surprised by the attentive service, the truly excellent tapas which just kept arriving and then their house special, the roast lamb! Wow, what a treat. The house red wine was perfectly matched to the various course (and the cerveza with the... More

Very good location on Calle Cava Baja. Restaurant is in a 17th century building so it has lots of character. The Lamb was the best I've had (its for two). Prices are quite reasonable and the service is excellent. Ask to be seated on the second floor.

Ate here with a Spanish Client who recommended it. The menu is basically a lot of different tapas so lots of choice. The food is very traditional but I found it to be variable. The shrimps were excellent but the asparagus was awful ( I like my asparagus to have a bit of a crunch whereas this was cooked till... More

The house wine is great and at a good price. Gazpacho was very good and of course the specialty of the house was the lamb that was superb. Very traditional castilian cooking but nice indeed ! Staff was great !

We arrived in Madrid on my birthday and this restaurant was recommended by our B&B host. It was a wonderful choice. We had the lamb dish (for 2), which was a leg of lamb served whole and carved at the table with a fork and spoon. Yes, no knife involved. It was that tender! And the taste was marvelous. Appetizer...

We were pleasantly surprised by this very traditional Spanish restaurant. Service was extremely professional, everything was tasty and prices were reasonable, given the quality of food and service. We ate stuffed peppers as a starter, lamb leg baked in the oven as a main entree, and drank Pasado de Villa red wine. My husband, who knows good lamb, said it... More

I ate there 2 nights ago with my daughter. The last time I ate in this restaurant was about 20 years ago with my husband and was really impressed. Well not much has changed apart from the prices. The decor, service and food is still the same - all very good. We ordered the lamb for our main course which... More

The venue wears its history openly and is a characterful place. The food was very good, honest and well-cooked. I shared the house special quarter lamb with a colleague and struggled to finish it. If you like tender lamb off the bone(s), this is for you. A green salad helped balance the meat feast! We visited on a Tuesday night... More

Staying in La Latina

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.
