We liked the look of this place from the outside with its tiled bright exterior. Inside it's beautifully decorated 'old style' with lots of tiling and photos of bull fighters with a large bulls head on the wall. We ordered 2 cana small beer and...More

This place was a little gem. We ate the best asparagus that we've ever had, and we both ordered cod dishes that were excellent. We loved the tilework and classic Madrid ambiance, and the people were wonderful. I'll confess we'd had trouble finding a good...More

Visited La Chata with my family. This is truly an authentic family run tapas taverna. The menu and the way things are done have not changed for some time it seems. That would have been ok if the food was great and the venue pleasant....More

This is one of the best tapas places I experienced in Madrid. It's in the Cava Baja street where many other restaurants and bars are located. You can bar-hop all night, but be sure to make a stop in La Chata. You can stand in...More

We loved this place. The traditional tiles adorning both the out and insides of this charming place gave it a really retro feel. The restaurant part is entered through a tapas bar, whose counter divides the space in half. It was thronged on our arrival,...More

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
