My friend and I spent a week in Madrid and ate here three times. It is full of locals and has a wonderful atmosphere. The food is super and the lovely waitress was so thoughtful in guiding us through the menu...I think we got it...More
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
The experience at the bar/restaurant was brilliant. The place itself is quirky, full of charm.
We took the tapas plate and a bottle of wine and we were amazed by both, the tapas are classics but extremely well made, and reasonably filling. We would absolutely...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 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.
