While traveling in Madrid after a week of Vaughantown, as an anglo teacher in their program, my traveling companion and I spent several days in Madrid at Calle Cava Baja in a rented flat. Across the street we found this restaurant, by chance, and walked in on Tuesday evening about 10:30 for dinner. A marvelous experience awaited us. The restaurant... More

We booked up on a rainy evening in September after many days of 35C+ heat. A rather unassuming entrance part of the boutique hotel La Posada Del Dragon. The menu included a couple of fixed price Tapas options which took a lot of the roulette out of the Tapas ordering process - we went for two fixed price options and... More

Such a beautiful place to eat, for both it's setting and the food. Visitors twice. First time was stunning, sat outside in the courtyard area, had amazing food and service. I had booked online and didn't realised but got a 50% discount which was a brilliant surprise! Came back to visit on our last night due to such great experience... More

We stumbled upon this place on a street filled with a ton of restaurants, and were so happy we found it. We had some incredible tapas (marinated tomatoes, a delicious beef special). Highly recommended.

We went tapas hopping, this was our first place (found it randomly). Left for our second place, walked around the block and came back after reading the reviews about some of the dishes we missed! Superb spot, do try!

Had a great meal at La Antonita. Servings weren't big, but the flavours were fabulous. We had sardines with strawberry tartar, oxtail croquettes and barbeque ribs with pineapple chutney. All were delicious. Wasn't that impressed with the tomato salad, though. Overall, highly recommended for something different.

It's on the ground level of a boutique hotel so there was a bit of guest traffic but not a problem for me. I had a beer, which came with a little something I can't remember now plus a tapa de tortilla (Spanish potato omelet)...all good and staff was friendly.

We had 2 starter, 2 mains, 3 alcohol drinks, 2 soft drinks and bread; this came to around 60 euros. The portions don't look big but the flavours are brilliant and we left feeling stuffed. The food arrives as courses, which we really enjoyed as we got to savour and appreciate each dish fully before the next arrived. I would... More

After walking for hours, getting lost and being ignored by the nearby corner pizza place, we were prepared to eat anything. So this place caught us off guard with its delightful courtyard, helpful waiter and surprising dishes. The heirloom marinated salad was tasty as was the beef carpaccio. The ribs with pineapple chutney were tender and delicious and the signature... 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.
