Definitely a place to go with friends. Drinks are huge and plates of food come out with each drink you buy. Always a busy vibe.

Everything from the food to the service to the ambience were top-notched. Where the problem arose was the BAD Valet Service. First, there is no sign to tell you that it’s $10 and then when we came out and found it it was $10 ;...that is what i gave the attendant. Well the guy turns around and asks me ‘do you want me to bring your car since it’s over there about 10 cars away?’ Left a real bad taste my in my mouthMore

I have no idea why any restaurant would serve the free tapas they serve. We came here because we read the reviews of the free tapas and thought this would be fun. I am still haunted by whatever that orange sauce they put on their...cold food. It all felt like a joke. I would never suggest anyone to go here. Just buy some bread and ketchup with a few bottles of beer and you will be much happier.More

Fantastic place! We were looking for best, original Madrid feelings, with energy, for normal people, authentic and really locally. We found it all here! Congrats, Friends from El Tigre!

we stopped by here on our recent huge Spain tour in November and we absolutely loved it, what a divine experience. The portions are huge and the food is just superb.

Sure, it's not the greatest food in Spain, but the massive drinks and super fun vibes made El Tigre my favorite dining experience I had during my six weeks in Madrid. It's also super inexpensive. By one drink for about 5 euros and get a...whole plate of tapas with it. Great for big groups.More

Better speak English or else they’ll take advantage of you. Be sure to just get beer and the free tapas that come with it.

The place was not for us. Tried it and we thought it would provide the experience we were after. The selection of tapas lacked variety.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and

collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as

It might be tight with 27 people but think it could accommodate you. Great tapas in relaxed atmosphere - reasonable wine and beers.
