Went here for lunch with my girlfriend. AWFUL food. Bad produce. My gf had a sandwich with Jamon Iberico. It was ugly, big chunks of bad ham sprayed with a bucket of cheap olive oil on a stale piece of bread with what tasted like bad tomatoes in some sort of puree in between. Had to let that go. The...

Hi, I would not recommend this tapas bar as I did not enjoy the food at all. The atmosphere was also not very welcoming. There is a tapas bar just next to it that offers a much better overall experience

If nothing else, I would go back to this place where the service at the bar is excellent. When you walk in the barkeeper greets you very friendly and continues to service you genuinely to serve. We were there for a good while and it seems that the place is favored by locals. I like that. The tapas are very... More

Discovered La Tosta on a visit to Madrid two weeks ago with friends and was not disappointed. We were lucky enough to reserve a table in the cellar and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. We were a party of six and each selected a choice from the menu to share. Each dish we had did not disappoint - the food... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
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.
