Obviously a local institution and popular with tourist groups. A lovely old building on 3 floors with bags of atmosphere. They run a very efficient operation here. Service was quick,slick and professional. Despite the large numbers here,even at tourist eating time of 8.30, we had our orders taken quickly and our food was delivered promptly. My wife had some lovely... More

It is a good sized restaurant with plenty of room with a nice wine list at reasonable prices and excellent meat dishes (lamb and deer) at reasonable prices. The staff is very patient with English speaking guests and offers excellent appetizers, olives and bread to start the meal. A good recommendation for both local and out of town guests.

This is old style Spanish cooking with the quarter slow roasted lamb the big attraction. Make sure that you are good and hungry before tackling it. Cooked to perfection, falling off the bone. Staff were very pleasant. Overall a good experience. We did not book but it probably is advisable as it is in the old town.

Superb traditional spanish cuisine, from the starters to the desserts, gently served. Located in the heart of La Latina this restaurant offers a fairly good mix of service and quality. Maybe the only con is that is quite noisy. I will be back soon for a typical "cocido" (don't miss to order it the day before)

On the sweet side my best is the cheese cake but do not... 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.
