Worst place at Madrid, non proffesional staff, too many people in line, they promise you table and after waiting for 30 min outside of the restaurant they simply say that there is no table. Not worth waiting with so many other places with polite staff

Delicious tapas and main course in the center of Latina. I would recommend to order the sandwich tuna (taste of heaven). I love this fusion (Japanese and Spanish), reserve a table otherwise you have to queue in the middle of the street and eating stand...at the bar :)More

We were lucky enough to be seated at 8pm even though we did not have a reservation. We enjoyed three pinxtos (the tortilla, the smoked sardines, and the mushroom ravioli). All were incredibly delicious, and it made me feel like I was back in northern...Spain. We also enjoyed the oxtail entree which was excellent. We finished with the volcano dessert (you must order when you arrive because it takes an hour). This restaurant is the best, and it should not be missed when you visit Madrid.More

Wasn’t expecting to get a table at this very popular resto. But followed our “stomachs” lol. We were ready to wait, but somehow they sat us right away. Tip, come there before they open for dinner service. Started w/ the mushroom ravioli with shaved black...truffle. Then we tried their famous “Tortilla”. The Tuna Tartare with pearl onion was incredible. I am a sucker for Foie Gras. And this dish gave me orgasm in my mouth. Main dish we shared was pulled Oxtail on potatoes and it’s on sauce. To finish the experience, Alex our server recommended the “Volcano”, delicate dulce Leche inside and vanilla ice cream. It took an hour to prepare, so we ordered it in the beginning. Became friends with the staff, so naturally we had free drinks and great conversations. They shared their experiences traveling to the US and how nice people from California are. @itsnickduhMore

The potato tortillas were great and so was all other food. Not exceptional but great. However, the waiter recommended a small portion of salmorejo which wasn't on the menu and it was frozen and was priced at 12 euros each. That was a disappointment and...otherwise the restaurant would have gotten 4 stars for great yet a bit expensive foodMore

This is a definite ‘must stop’ re a visit to Madrid. I absolutely loved everything about this ‘purely good vibes’ eatery… the FOOD, the cocktails, laidback and loud atmosphere with primarily a chic young crowd. The oxtail is highly recommended.

I had reviewed the restaurant beforehand and subsequently made a reservation. I'm glad I did. We had an excellent meal with great service. Our reserved table was ready when we arrived and the restaurant was already quite crowded at 8:15. But, we had a nice...table for 2 by the window waiting for us. I saw them turn away several groups because they were at capacity and the bar was packed. The tortilla was as good as "advertised". I was a little surprised it was served on bread but I guess that is the difference between being pintxos and not tapas. Overall it was an excellent meal, but one part stood out to me. The oxtail fajita was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. I'm not saying this was my best overall meal, because it's not. But, the one part, the oxtail fajita, was exceptional. We spent 2 1/2 weeks in Croatia nd Madrid and had many wonderful meals but I think our meal here was the best.More

We got really lucky to have a table for 2, without reservation. The service was perfect, they are giving recommendations a out what we should try and how to eat the meals. The tortilla is amazing and you should try it out for sure. The...egg with truffle is also something to try. Salmon is perfect. The price are reasonable for the really great quality of the food !! After our dinner we moved to the bar to have a drink, typical Spanish ambiance around us. We highly recommend!More

Someone told me that they do the best tortilla in Madrid. I’ve had good tortilla and disappointing tortilla so I was expecting good…then it arrived. This is a whole new world of taste sensations. If you go please please have the tortilla. A lovely restaurant....Best to book but if you don’t then make sure you are in the first few people of the inevitable queue for the 8pm opening. That’s what we did and we were lucky enough to get a table. Delightful, helpful staff. Food sensations way beyond what we were expecting on all four dishes. They also stock some very good wines They are, of course, very busy…but then places of worth are busy. Get yourselves in there and have a meal you will never forget.More

My mom and uncle had been to Juana la Loca several times, but I had not. On this last trip, my uncle raved about the eel and foie gras nigiri and the Tuna Katsu sando. Since I had just been to Japan with him in...December, I knew that he knew his stuff. Please make reservations in advance. I tried 2 weeks before my last day in Madrid, but couldn't get in. Luckily, I had heard that if you show up when the doors open, you might have a chance. Sucess! I got one of the last walk-in tables. We had 3 dishes: eel-foie nigiri (amazing!), the Tuna Katsu with trout eggs (terrific!) and the soft-shell crab bao (yum!). JlL will definitely be on my list (with reservations) the next time I am in Madrid.More

Incredible meal and some of the best food we've had in Spain. Very creative dishes, food very fresh and came out fast. Cool atmosphere too. We had a reservation for 8P and we got there right when they opened. There was a line of people...that had the same idea as us. The place was full within 5 minutes. We noticed a number of people try to walk in and were turned away because it was packed, so I would recommend making a reservation.More
