“Old World Delicacies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

A small, rustic bar not far from Puerta del Sol, Casa Toni serves up raçiones of peasant delicacies that I have not seen since my Grandfather died 30 years ago. In addition to the Chipironės which were expertly prepared, they offer sweetbreads, kidney and the seriously not-to-be missed pig's ears. No joke, if you think pork belly is cool, go old school with the sautéed pigs ears and a glass of the house Ribera del Duero.

“Good Tapas, Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Funky little tapas place close to Puerta del Sol. If what's in the window looks good to you, this is your kind of place. If this were at home, it would be on my regular restaurant rounds. We ate here twice, fried eggplant, lamb intestine (wound on a stick and fried crisp), boquerones, patatas bravas, white wine, vermouth, all good. Nice staff who served a free tapas with our drinks and a complementary glass of muscat wine to end our meal. The place is right across the street from La Oreilla de Jaime, making it an easy intro to tapas.

“Worth a try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Real nice people...very local. Not fancy.
Rick Steves put it in his book. Very inexpensive. Didn't think the potatoes were great(Rick did).
We ordered a "special"/ should have done the menu. Food was good/ people really nice.
If you are in the area though...go across the street to La Oreja de Jamie and get there green peppers/

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Being experienced travellers and diners from Oz, we've developed a nose for finding good places to eat. We avoid tourist areas and seek out the local's haunts. We've had mixed success from following various guides and reviews but gut feel seems to work best for us. And so it was when we stumbled across Casa Toni around 9:00pm, having already had great garlic prawns for starters at another little joint just up the street. The displays of various foods on offer in the front window 1st attracted us. Various types of mushrooms, seafood, meats and offal, which a bit keen on I must say. We looked inside and saw a modest crowd of only locals, with room for us at the bar. We were welcomed with pleasant greetings not usually offered tourists and sat down to enjoy some of the best Tapas we've experienced. Great staff and service, very reasonably priced and generous dishes freshly cooked at the bar by an entertaining and friendly (can you believe it?) chef. Couldn't fault it other than no desserts or coffees available, so we moved on for that. Highly recommended and a must visit!!!!

“I will always go there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Friendly staff, they appreciate the fact that you go back there over and over and they make friends with you. Amazing food and the place is just simple and pure nice spanish environment.
I've been living in Madrid for a while and I found Casa Toni by chance when I was wondering on the streets looking for a place to eat tapas and have some cañas.. it was the best by far that I got to know and everytime I got visits I always take them there and they love it as well. Casa Toni deserves all the success! I will always go there.
