A great place for a few drinks and tasty tapas! The flame cooked chorizo was particularly interesting. Very reasonably priced as well.

Crowded with people, very busy. The free tapas were tasty, very small though (but for free). There was almost no choice. The paid tapas ware not very tasty. We took the goat cheese and capreza salad.

First of all, this is a cafe, not a proper restaurant. That being said, the food (cooked by the owner) is fantastic. With a glass of beer you get a tapa. The ox tail stew is gorgeous. The place is small (four tables), but let's...More

Do not expect a Michelin-star restaurant. This is bar but a very original one at that. Caña (small glass of beer) is 1.4 Euros and includes a tapa to choose from a list. We tasted four of them and all were very good. I cannot...More

Nice bar to spend a lazy day in Madrid. Nice and free tapas, a rarity in Madrid it seems. Relaxed ambience with young English speaking owners. A more authentic taste of Madrid.

We went here twice on our holiday - both times we found it very relaxing and chilled out with good music and friendly service. The drinks are reasonably priced and the free tapas is delicious. Highly recommended.

I stumbled across this place whilst in madrid, which I would recommend. Reasonably priced, good beer and the bonus of free tapas which were a generous size and tasty as well. I found it was very welcoming with a good atmosphere and worth a stop...More

Walking into this neighborhood is like entering a
different country ... except it's hard to tell which
one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with
Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and

Café and tapas bar, where the tapa comes free with each beer, wine or soft drink, and you can choose from a list of different tapas. There are options for vegetarians and vegans. There are also "raciones" (larger dishes or dishes to share), breakfasts and and spirits. Good quality food and drink at very affordable prices, in a friendly and clean atmosphere.Local artists hold exhibitions here.
