This was our first meal in Spain, and remains in our memory as one of the best. Staff super nice (despite a bit of a language barrier). Tried a plate with 2 kinds of salami, jamon, and cheese. It was just perfect! When we were there, several well dressed local 30 somethings were just having drinks and tapas just like... More

My friend and I went to enjoy the seafood paella at this restaurant during our backpacking trip. Although we were on a budget, the paella was something we really wanted to try. At €11.50, the portion was extremely delicious and generously sized. It included crawfish, shrimp, calamari and mussels. Service was friendly and the tapas were great as well!

My wife and I love Madrid and have been many times, so many tapas bars to choose from, we went here twice on a recent visit. We actually just went in for a glass of wine, but the tapas that came with it were so good that we stayed for several, staff made us feel very welcome and were even... More

Called in just for a drink, but the beer was excellent & the house Rioja was the best I had while in Madrid (& I had plenty). But once we had eaten some of the tapas, we were hooked & stayed for the rest of the night. We tried the little whole green peppers, flavoursome cheese, olives, bread, we ordered... More

Not sure what other TA reviewers were thinking. We were a little leery about this place at first because many of the other TA reviews weren't that positive. We walked by during the weekend and the place was mobbed but on Monday night, at around 8:30 or so, we had the place to ourselves. This restaurant is a little hole... More

This place was recommended to me. It is where people from Madrid go for a night out. The waiters don’t speak English and are a little grumpy. But the food is top class. Good points • The food is fantastic. Try the cured meat and the pork belly • Wine and Fino are top class • Waiters are grumpy but... More

Firstly let me say that it is difficult to find restaurants in Cava Baja where you can push a stroller through, much less eat with a little slurp-space (read breathing space). Toma Jamon looked delicious and welcoming. So we fidgeted in, saw the picture of the oxtail stew and pointed at it. Delicioso! OMG this was so good, as good... More

We had been walking for hours and decided it was time for a drink and bite to eat. Got some Jamon y Queso, which were fine. Waited an hour and got some terrible paella. Took one bite and asked for check and left. Waiters were awful and rude. Skip this place it is a tourist trap.

We popped in here quite late one evening for some tapas after seeing that it looked a really authentic venue. A glass of red and a glass of cava and some tortilla espanol set us up really well to browse the menu. We settles on fried pork with salted pimentos and Spanish potatoes with chorizo and eggs. While the latter... More

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.
