I know this place just out of some beers along different days but can say is a really good option for some tapas around the center of Madrid. Cheap prices with an abundant tapa and well draught beer.

In any, but in this particular piece of heaven.....you should try the Huevos Estallados & of course octupuse with papas bravas!!!! Service is the best the place has, because they care of whatever you might like. Please take Natillas for desert and then......write a review!!!

We would never have gone into this authentic tapas bar our first night in Madrid (and Spain) had it not been for the tour leader we had earlier in the day saying that he eats here often. We figured, if it was good enough for...More

Highly recommended. Well this was our first day in Spain ever so I'm not qualified to judge, but this place struck me as truly authentic. The place was full of locals watching the election results. I have coeliac disease so needed a gluten free meal....More
