Loved the food here - we have eaten several lunches here and also an evening meal. The portions are not oversized (as they often are at Spanish restaurants) and the food is innovative and delicious. Sitting out outside in this shady square is a real pleasure on a hot day. The ceviche here was great for a hot day and... More

The restaurant is in a busy square full of bars. The restaurant it self is fantastic and very modern. It has a very cosy feeling but also a good vibe. There is a good choice of food with a good selection for vegetarian. It is well priced as well and they present the food amazingly well. This restaurant is a... More

Like so many off the beaten track places in this city, there is a real buzz from staff who seem to be really serious about the food they serve and do so with out any pretentious attitude, only that they want you to have a great eating experience. Its a great place to have a leisurely dinner and all of... More

Terrible service at this restaurant. Thought we were even being deliberately ignored at one point (empty glasses...) as food was clearly significantly delayed. We watched others who had ordered merely 10 minutes before us get served and still we were waiting for 45+ minutes. 1 hour and 15 minute wait between starters and mains in total. Ridiculous. No explanation or... More

Called in after we found Taco and Tapas closed. The restaurant is in the square nearby. Restaurant is beautiful and romantic. Service was good, it gets busy after 9.30pm. Food was innovative and very good quality. I had the burger and I know it sounds simple but is a good test for any eatery as there are many elements to... More

This place is a bit special! We were a bit lucky to get in without booking and it was worth it. We had "Shavings of Fois" with thyme bread plus Iberian ham & cheese croquettes, then a rump steak with potatoes and black garlic and marrow bone and a pork cheek massaman style curry. A bottle of wine and a... More

We had an amazing lunch here, really wish we could have gone back a 2nd time! The decor is really clean, fresh and stylish. I had pasta which was home made and my husband was really impressed with his burger. Service was good and the bill was really reasonable for such a tasty lunch. I'd highly recommend anyone to visit... More

We had an early dinner here last night and it was one of the best dining experiences we have had in Europe over many years and trips. The food is incredible. The tuna tartare was the best I have ever had and the squash ravioli was clearly from scratch and of the highest quality. The flavors and combinations are evidence... More

Dinner for two on 19th May 2016. Every course was a delight, but the Iberian pork cheeks were simply magnificent. Waiting staff were attentive, efficient and friendly without being in the least intrusive. Service wasn't quick but it was perfectly paced given that this was a meal to savour rather than to sustain. The decor is modern and attractive. The... More

Staying in La Latina

Neighborhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighborhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighborhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
