This was one of our stops for dinner tonight. Nice selection of Tapas, and some great wine. All of the barstools were a little short, kind of made us feel like we were sitting at the kiddie table for Thanksgiving!
On a recent night out with colleagues we fell into Txakolina. Luckily for our group of 7, there was a table at the back (though there’s ample standing space too).
The food is based around the Pinxto, a tapa typical in the Pays Basque region...More
Great place for pintxos, we had 2-3 tapas to share and they are huge and taste good. Hard to decide though, since they have a lot to choose from. Great service as well. Located on the best tapas street in Madrid.
It's quite popular among the locals, so sometimes you need a tiny battle of elbows 💪 for get some centimeters at the counter, but it worth it, especially if someone comes for the first time. The pintxos are huge, two of them is a complete...More
We were so lucky to find an apartment in the great part of town, in a neighborhood full of first class restaurants such as casa Lucio, casa Lucas, Sobrino de Botin, etc.

I love the high quality pintxos at Taberna Txakolina, and the fresh beer and wine are a close second. Always busy, it's got a great atmosphere, too, and there are so many other quality tabernas nearby that when you're done you can continue with your...More
Even though there was no added salt, the pincho was quite flavorful. We paid 16euros for three tapas and two red wines. The Spanish waiter is very polite. We love Iberian Ham is of an excellent flavor. We recommed it a lot!
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a 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
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
