Description: Nice tavern located on the most central and commercial zone of Madrid (walking distance to la Puerta del Sol and Plaza de Santa Ana). Ideal to make a stop along the way to taste its tapas or to have dinner sitting at one of its small rooms. Very varied menu of Spanish portions and bite-sized appetizers. Kind employees. Kitchen open to the public for directly dealing with the chef. Sangría. Cocktails.

The food was the best and most affordable around and the service was excellent. If you're looking for great authentic tapas, this is the place.

“Delicious Tapas with a twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Still sitting here and just finished some delicious Tapas. Everything freshly prepared and with a twist. Good wines. Very good service. Try it if you are in the centre, you won't regret it.

“Great tapas, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

This Taberna was just round the corner from our hotel and so, as a top 10 rated restaurant in Madrid sought it out.

Wasn't disappointed when we called in for lunch. Bar is disceptively big, bar at room and additional room at the back. All the tapas is catagorised into price bands €2/€3/€4 plus large plates too. All tapas has a modern twist and feel to it which fits with the bar and decor inside.

We had three tapas all were delicious, partridge pate, crispy chicken and potatoes mojo plus a plate of ham and eggs.

Total bill with 2 beers and a glass of wine (large one too!) came to €23 which was great value.

Definitely worth the good ratings!! Must visit if your in this part of the city.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Absolutely the best tapas I ever had.
Go with the ham as a starter, then the 15€ menu.
Not expensive, excellent food and nice service (merci Paula).
We'll be back!

“Not one of the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

I have paid three visits to the bar. The only thing I remember is the perdiz foe grass. The rest was average.
