We enjoyed our first dinner in Spain at the Taberna. The food was good - some of it was very good. The steak needed to be sent back for more cooking (they like their steak VERY rare in Spain apparently), but it was tasty. The bread was excellent.

Nice traditional Taberna. Starters of Gazpacho and House salad were mixed. Gazpacho was good, House Salad was same old boring undressed salad you can get anywhere. Certainly NOT worth €12.50. Please can restaurants who want to charge premium prices for a simple salad at least serve ripe tomatoes. The meal was rescued by the next course. Suckling pig was totally... More

So we found this and were hungry. The food - especially the fish - was wonderful but there was not much WITH the fish, and there is no doubt this place fancies itself. Its waiters were smart and its prices were high. Worth it as a one-off special visit.

We arrived rather late, after 10.30pm. Lovely food, perfect setting, great waiter. Would go again and recommend it highly. Everything felt just right.

From our arrival onwards the entire service was of the highest possible quality. Straight away we were offered appetisers, the hosts David and Aitor provided an utterly excepcional service, their attitude cannot be topped. The pork suckling was extremely juicy, the predecessing starters of green pimentón and gazpacho were amoung the best meals served on our pan-Spain tour. This restaurant... More

Slightly hidden away but a true hidden gem in La Latina quarter of Madrid, not far from Puerta del Sol and the Mercado San Miguel. They have a large below stairs room for big groups. Very accommodating and helpful staff. Food is simple and traditional Spanish, excellent quality.

Situated about a ten minute stroll from the plaza mayor, the taberna is a large restaurant with limited outdoor seating. We arrived at 23.00 and there was a table outside available but would recommend booking. The restaurant was not as "touristy" as some closer to the plaza, but the service was friendly, attentive and professional. The speciality suckling pig was,... More

our hotel on Calle Cava Baja was perfect for us, and after we rested we set out to find a restaurant for dinner. Not even a block away was Captain Alatriste, which we had to try. A good choice, the setting very traditional, the waiter kind enough to provide an English menu, and very patient describing the fare. I had... More

Very busy restaurant in a quiet street just off the main Tapas bar street of Calla Cava Baja. Nice outdoor eating area. Suckling Pig to share was outstanding.

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.
