Great service, very friendly staff and the croquettes are definitely worth the wait! (Croquettas de bacalao) delicious, creamy and good price too. It was a perfect bar for a quick stop. We had 2 cañas and 4 croquettes for the 2 of us and it...More

We had a very nice baccalao and salad. The service is good as well. Better to book in advance if you want to seat in the restaurant area.

We stopped in here with some local friends and loved the Cod. Like most good Tapas bars it does get crowded but the service was fast.

Casa Labra, since 1860, has been famous with locals long before the touristas invaded...so be prepared for a line even on a Monday night. The bar and outside areas: Only €1.50 for their famous deep fried cod tapas, and they are tasty indeed! Only €1...More

Little place, tiny, difficult to locate. You stand, you have a drink and try the cod, Bacalao. Either in a batter and fried or as a cocreta. Simple food, made at its best. Little vermout or a draft beer, watch the crowd move through the...More

Not somewhere to hang around - I think we stuffed our faces for 15 mins and were on our way. Absolutely delicious, and we were seated straight away! We had the empanadillas de carne & croquetas de bacalao.

The road is long here. But the wait is spectacular food. You have too wait a while on the line to purchase the portions. But once you get served the freshly and cleanly fried and breaded cod portions and croquetas with a hot bechamel interior,...More

Perfect traditional tapas spot. Loved by locals, right in the center by puerta del sol... make sure you stop by and have some Bacalao (fried cod fish) and some CAÑA (beer)... be a local in the middle of a very touristic radius.

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

On new year's eve, the place will be completely packed. I am not sure they will allow your dog to enter the restaurant. They do have an outside terrace. Try. And if you are not allow or you don't like how crowded the place... More

You can and should make reservations, but the real experience (and my recommendation) is at the front where no reservations are needed. It's a casual come and go place. You eat croquetas and have your cañas standing and... More
