My partner and I called in here for an early-evening aperitif and wished we'd stayed for more. The bar area offers an exciting selection of pintxos (tapas Basque-style, served on mini skewers) at a really reasonable €1.50 each. Despite the busy evening, the staff were calm and helpful, even coping with our limited Spanish with a smile!

My partner and I went on a recommendation from a friend who lives in Madrid. There was a huge range of bite-size goodies; all the same price (I think it was 1.5 euros) and made very well. Each comes pierced with a cocktail stick and at the end, you pay by the number of cocktail sticks on your plate. Lovely... More

We have loved this place! We loved the food, the copas de tinto e de cava, and the highlight was how well we were taken care by Sarah! The nicest waitress/hostes of Spain! Sarah: thank you for making us feel so special on a busy Saturday!

We randomly picked this place as we were all tired and hungry. The tables here were quite tall, so we were all sitting on bar stools at the table. Not the best for our bouncing 3 year old boy. We also had a 10m old, who had to sit in our arms-which was not ideal. The food started if nice,... More

We've eaten here twice so far and plan to do so again on our last evening. They have a tapas bar downstairs but we preferred the restaurant on the first floor. The service was first class with some great extra treats.

This is my second stop here this week after stumbling over it. The pintxos are affordable and very good (though not quite as good in the Basque Country). Good selection of wines and sidra. Go in the evening for the best selection of pintxos (a suggestion from staff when I came in to check it out). Hot pintxos are on... More

I stumbled across this restaurant on my last night and it made my trip all the more memorable. To start, I hate food from Spain, but going to a place like this restores my faith in the entire country. I had the tasting menu with beef. It is a six course meal and every plate is delicious. The entree at... More

Still one of my favourites in Madrid. The food is excellent and the staff quite charming. Hot tapas always leaving the kitchen.

I think some people over rate this place. The "pinchos" and oysters are good but this is how it should be. Prices are "ok" considering it is in the center of Madrid.

We were at the top floor, the restaurant is stunning and our waiter was very efficient! The fish soup was one of the best I had and the tuna just cooked perfect! Good selection of starters too with fresh oyster to try!!

Neighborhood Profile
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
