Read all the great reviews and decided to try it. Snails....yikes you have to have an acquired taste for this meal. NOT we did not enjoy their menu at all. I gave it a two because the waitress was super cool. The service was excellent...but if you're looking for a good meal...keep searching unless your into snails 🤮 Worst meal of our trip this far.More

Great little tapas bar in La Latina. We had the signature dish (snails/caracoles) but also calamares, bacalao and other stuff. The owner, Amadeo, is 89 years old and has been working their for 40+ years. Very interesting guy. Anyway, worth a stop for sure if...you're in La Latina neighborhood.More

Excellent bar. Very friendly, busy bar with a local feel. Snails are interesting, and a talking point. Would recommend to visit with a group of friends.

A friend who lives nearby recommended this place to me years ago as we were staying at the hotel over the road and to be fair, the beer is very good. However, the real reason I'm writing this review is the snails. They sit there...in a pan behind the bar stewing away in what I expect is a top secret blend of herbs and spices that Colonel Sanders would kill to discover if indeed he were still alive and about to open a global chain of snail eateries. So when I recently returned to Madrid with a group of friends, the Snail Bar was a must visit. I found it refurbished and full of happy people eating snails, drinking drinks and chatting loudly. Proper friendly place this, go there, eat snails, drink beer, life is good.More

I love this place. The atmosphere, the owner Amadeo is such a character and the food is spot on for a place that has such a good reputation

Typical old Spanish bar rule by the same family since ages. No fancy at all, but is where the neighbors go. They serve the beer (cañas) according to Madrid’s way and the snails (escargot) they prepare they are just incredible. Go there, ask for a...“caña” (or two) and some “Caracoles” (escargot). Just enjoy it. After that, keep moving to La LatinaMore
