Friendly staff and good value drinks and food - worth a stop on a stroll round the Malasana. The music was good and the menu very interesting.

All I can say is fantastic find, right across the road from our Rented apartment. Really modern Spanish Tapas, delicious twists on classics. Order the bomba and the croquetta 2.0 - delish! Food and drinks are very well priced, and very funky surroundings. We stayed in Madrid for 4 nights, and ended up going there every day to see friendly... More

2 couples visiting Madrid for the first time. Both got the 30€ degustation and it was fantastic. Food was flavoursome and fresh, service was prompt and friendly, and the drinks were nice. Highly recommend. Get in earlier to ensure a table.

The restaurant was very nice and cozy and felt modern. The food was just excellent! One of the best dinners we have had. All four of us. The tempura langostinos, the Bomba, Carpaccio rolls, Carrilleras con setas and the ceviche (the list can go on) was just sooo very good. If we had had more time in Madrid we would... More

Super hipster setting (loud music, random lighting installation on the walls, and wait staff in denim aprons) but pretty delicious food and drinks.

We were looking for a nice place for decent lunch....unfortunatelly, we left the place with empty stomacks....tapas were delicious but not enough...so if you want to get some drink and finger food, good place to go

We stay in a hotel near by. We are too lazy to go into the center area for dinner so we found this place which has some good reviews on the Internet. And we are not disappointed. The restaurant doesn't have a big menu. But the menu is great. You can get Spanish tapas with some modern twists as well... More

Neighborhood Profile
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
