The bar has great decor and atmosphere, almost a museum to bullfighting. Drinks and staff ok, tapas awful, some stewed offal shoved in front of you. No thanks

Disinterested waiter. Poor value for money. Tiny glass of wine 4.50, small salad 10. Garlic shrimps the most expensive we've seen at nearly 20. Dirty toilets with no paper. Give your custom elsewhere.

This is an iconic bar in Plaza Mayor. The inside bar is very small and walls are covered with photos of bullfighters and bulls heads. Great tapas and wonderful employees. You can stand inside or sit outside. Worth the visit.

Really nice bar to sit and watch the world go by in centre of madrid. Get the tapas from inside rather than the food on menu.

Very rude establishment! It’s a café, and we sat down to have a coffee, willingly knowing we have to pay more because sitting in Plaza Mayor! And it’s a tourist trap! However when the waiter heard we wanted “just coffee” he said very rudely that...the machine was broken and no more coffee and walk away. I guess they don’t want my money ! Not recommendedMore

Typical Spanish tapas place. I am super happy with it as they pour La Guita Manzanilla by the glass and that is one of my favorites. The place has great torero, toros ambiance. You know you are in Spain when you walk in here.

So we went here for all the bull fighting memorabilia. It was the afternoon and we ordered a sangria and they gave us a tapas to go with. These 3 older men behind the bar are a hoot. Not sure I liked one of them...kissing my hand but just the same it was a memorable experience. Small place with a few bar stools and no tables, but tables are not needed. Room for everyone.... It is a must and so fun!More

Accidentally found this place in La Plaza Mayor. I had read about its history and people’s comments. This is a small stand up bar (no stools but tables& chairs outside). It certainly isn’t fancy but the service was great and employees were the best and...I had great bullfighting history. Not sure I understood anything the staff said but that didn’t matter we had a great time. The beer, paella and tapas were very good. This place has amazing photos of matadors, bulls and famous people on the wall who have attended the bullfights or come into the bar. Huge mounted bulls’ heads are on the walls. This is a must find place to visit and “belly up” to the bar!!More

If you are against bullfighting, this bar probably isn’t for you, but we found it amazing. The food, drink and ambience were all perfect. Well worth a visit if you’re passing through the Plaza Mayor

The veggie paella here was delicious. It's great to have traditional dishes in vegan version. The staff is welcoming and understanding. I keep eating eating everything before I remember to take pictures. Oops
