More than a restaurant Tocororo, this has recently been transformed and we have space to mention Tocororo. A more open world flavors. It retains the essence of your kitchen, so well done and served as required, for those who still prefer to go to "eat the Creole and now also to the Mediterranean." Also with live music every Saturday night. But Tocororo is now a much more transparent, a bright corner of Barrio de las Letras in Madrid for events and celebrations and every Saturday and Sunday, its full-Brunch, Mediterranean and English your breakfast or just a coffee as well, as mandated in the morning with the daily press and wireless, are becoming increasingly famous. And it's not unusual to see appear on your Facebook and web advertising activities such as meetings with writers and poets, painters or actors who declaim to Lope de Vega and José Martí ... Of course, do not leave Tocororo, without tasting cocktails, these monuments Cubans and the world are the daiquiri, the mojito, the caipirinha, the margarita ... tasted so good in this space renovated, cozy and cheerful. Tocororo is multiplied, not lose its essence but to enrich it. .. Options

I went here for breakfast while on a business trip to Madrid. It was the best breakfast that I had there bar none. I liked the restaurant so much that I brought some friends there for dinner the next evening and we had a wonderful meal. The owner is from Havana and spent some time in Miami before opening the...

We stayed just across the street and thought it would be to try some Cuban cuisine in Madrid. We live in Chicago and there are many Latin American restaurants that are fantastic. I ordered the Ropa Vieja which is one of my favourite dishes, full stop. For me the portion size was small and this restaurant did not meet our... More

The food at the Tocororo is really good, authentic Cuban cuisine, under the tutelage of its friendly Havana born owner and staff. Nice portions, tasty foods, great music. You will be satisfied...

Being slightly encumbered by not being able to read Tapas menus or at least not quickly and tired of pushing way through to front of bar only having to suffer muddling through various breadowns in communication. The decision was made to try Cuban which also had english translation on the menu plus most dishes were pretty self explanatory even in... More

While trying to find a reasonable price for dinner around Plaza Santa Ana we happened upon El Tocororo. It specializes in Cuban cuisine and offered both vegetarian and non-vegetarian selections. The food was well-prepared and well-priced. The service was attentive and friendly. We enjoyed the meal very much.

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
