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.

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!

performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
