My wife and I popped in around 10pm, when it was easy to find a table. The hirsute barmen we friendly, and their hipster demeanor indicated their cocktails would be something special. We perused the cocktail board, which listed classic cocktails and their ingredients attributed to their hometowns and year of invention. Included in the list were a number of... More

I appreciated the surprises that come with te tapas you order, textures, mix of flavours, etc Good service, and you can feel the place didn't lose the spirit of a "food house". Let yourself be recommended by the staff and you'll be in good hands.

The place is brimming with ambience right down to the smartly dresses serving staff who look like they came out of Chicago speak easy. We focused on their cocktails and tapas as we sat downstairs and not in the restaurant but it was excellent. Cocktails aren't cheap but they are works of art and they know their game -- and... More

Having had a substantial meal at lunch, we were looking for some tapas on a Monday night. When a recommended place nearby turned out to be closed, we called El Bolero and were told a reservation wasn't necessary at that time (8:30), but they'd hold a table for us. They had nice outdoor dining on a balmy October night, but... More

Very fancy food and perhaps too rich but fascinating and fun. Having been unable to get into the restaurant that we had researched we decided to try this one and we were not disappointed. Cocktails to start followed by too much food. Great wine - I love it when you ask for a recommendation of a local wine and it... More

Try their "tapas de abajo": I suggest Carbon de Bacalao, Tosta de Guacamelva and Tortilla Sorda de Sacromonte. They're exquisite! Table service is quite slow, but take your time to enjoy the food. And a copa of red wine.

Fully recomendable. Typical spanish food cooked with new techniques, to share and surprise everyone. The music thread was amazing too.

My boys and I were on a day trip to Toledo from Madrid. It was a Monday so many of the city's museums were closed. We were exploring Toledo on foot and around lunch time we serendipitously came across Taberna El Botero, a small restaurant on Calle de la ciudad 5 ( tel. 925 280 957). The ground floor was... More
