Yes, it is a tourist trap restaurant lying on the edges of the Plaza Santa Ana in central Madrid. But when you've walked enough, and can't be bothered getting off the main strip, pay the slight premium and have lunch here. The outside terrace allows...More

This tapas restaurant is a welcome youthful upgrade to many of the more traditional tapas places in Spain. The menu also includes incredible cocktails and delicious desserts served by enthusiastic young servers. Choose from an eclectic array of delicious tapas with upscale and fresh ingredients.

Description
El restaurante Lateral ubicado en la plaza de Santa Ana, en el madrileno barrio de las letras, abre sus puertas en el ano 2008. Es el quinto restaurante que Lateral abre en Madrid, y lo hace con la intencion de trasladar su particular oferta gastronomica a una de las zonas con mas vida en la capital y mas transitadas por el turismo.Disenado por el interiorista Inigo Well, al igual que los de Fuencarral y Arturo Soria, es posiblemente uno de los restaurantes mas bellos en la plaza de Santa Ana, en el que destacan su impresionante fachada tallada en madera y una decoracion interior que hace pensar que puedas estar mas en tu propia casa que en un restaurante del centro de Madrid.El restaurante dispone de varias zonas con unas algo mas de 40 mesas distribuidas entre la planta baja y la planta sotano, y se ha convertido en uno de los mejores restaurantes con terraza en Madrid.Horario de cocina: ininterrumpido de domingo a miercoles desde las 12.00 a las 24.00 horas y de jueves a sabado hasta las 01.00Horario de local: de domingo a miercoles desde las 12.00 a las 24.00 horas y de jueves a sabado hasta las 02.00
