Xavier served us and although his English is not the best, he was helpful and very nice. We ordered the black paella, clams in tomato sauce and pork in chocolate sauce (yes). Everything was excellent!! The food took some time but worth the wait. It turned out that Xavier is the chef - so many great qualities. Glad we came.... More

Although primarily a beer pub, with imports and Spanish labels alike, we were able to enjoy a nice paella and sangria. Close to Plaza Mayor, and shopping. Also near Palacio Real. Service was friendly. Definitely recommend for the beer junkies.

Stopped here on a whim after walking around and found some great paella and very cold beer. The servers were lovely and we enjoyed a great afternoon break.

We happened upon Cerveceria La Mayor on our way back to our hotel one evening, and what a find it was! It's a small (tiny) bar decorated with beer bottles and memorabilia from around the world, but the really astounding thing is the selection of beer (there seems to be a focus on Belgian) they carry. I tend to make... More

I walked past this place and noticed they had Westvleteren 12 in the window. The best beer in the world and nowhere other than a pub in Belgium sells it. I just had to check this place out. We went in and sat in the window and had a great time we decided to come back. Very cool spot!

Great service. Walking distance from the Royal Palace. Beers from all around the world. A great place to refresh yourself with a nice cold beer after a long walk.

In general it's a very cute cerveceria with a nice design inside and wonderful windows, just around the corner from the Royal Palace. They offer a big choice of beers and tapas, but paella is not their best thing in my opinion. Waiters have a bit confused our order and also we had to wait for it quite long, but... More

My friend and I loved this place. We stopped in for the 11.50 euro paella and drink deal. We definitely got our money's worth. The staff was friendly and the food was great. I would recommend this place to a friend. Try the sangria!

We found this place a few blocks off the tourist section. It definitely had a more local feel as a priest came in while we were there. It is very small so we sat at the bar which was perfect of us. It has a wide variety of beer and only a couple of wine options. We had a couple... 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.
