A good night out

The restaurant had the look as if from the old times. The service was perfect. The food was more than good and the price was reasonable.

I tried this restaurant because my father went there 3 years ago. We ate a milk lambkin with potatoes and a bottle of a good Spanish red wine. Waiters very lovely and the restaurant is warm and welcoming. Next time I'll visit Madrid I came here once again.

We were absolutely delighted by this restaurant. Very welcoming, first-rate professional staff, and great dishes from start to finish. We loved both the grilled mushrooms and grilled asparagus starters, and the lamb was perfect. Top marks all around. We will definitely be back the next time we're in Madrid. This one's a keeper.

Througout the years this place has been a reference of hight quality and afordable price. Serious people who boast his good service. Lately something has changed and quality and prices have raised ones and lowered the others. It,s not a good thing that they offer you roasted lamb just pulled off from the havern but every one can notice that... More

We had a group dinner at La Posada, and they treated us like gold. The lamb is out of this world. Beautiful restaurant with warm ambience.

I went here for a business meal, and while my guest was about 20 minutes late, there was no problem, even though the restaurant was filling up fast. The service is very attentive but quite calm. The food is well prepared and does not arrive all at once. We ordered quite a few appetizers to share, and they paced them... More

An excellent place to feed 1 or 101 people easily. Actually we were 150 and everyone loved the place. Great starters all of them and then if you are a lamb lover you can overdo it eating it. Very much recommended for atmosphere, food and service.

You always get a friendly welcome even on your first visit. After that, you are like family. I would go just for the greetings but the food is even better. The house specialty is the baby lamb cooked in their wood burning oven. The aroma fills the restaurant and it is the only thing that you want to order. But... 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.
