Tried the cod and croquettes - nothing wrong with either but we had better croquettes at casa lucio in la Latina. The cod was nice but honestly nothing special. Mercado San Miguel had just as good. The smell inside was very off-putting.

If you like fish then try this place, very authentic, from before 1900 (not the Fish) and tasty fish cakes with beer.

Great food great prices what more do you want? Bit of a trek to locate but it's worth it. The croqueta de bacalao is a must have.

To note this bar specialises in cod, so not much good complaining about everything else they serve. The croquettes are lovely and I like having a separate bar for drinks (a hangover from history), which means pretty prompt service for a beer of Vermouth.

Great Spanish fare at moderate prices with authentic Madrileño feel. One of the best in town. Highly recommended.

If you want fancy and touristy don't come here. If you want Madrid and tapas this is your place. Famous for tapas de bacalao (fresh battered cod) and croquet de bacaleo ( COD croquettes) don't bother deviating from these items unless it's fish (fresh tuna). Every mouthful was fresh and delicious. Staff lovely, friendly and helpful. Drinks menu ok- limited... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
