We had a lovely stroll across the city after a fun visit to the Aljaferia castle. The metal door was half closed when we arrived at 9:15, but someone came out and said they would be open in 15 minutes. We came back about a half hour later and were very surprised to see most of the tables full. At other restaurants, people were just wandering in at 10. We soon found out why. Thursdays are show night at the Taberna.
Between courses, the bartender (who was dressed in drag) came out in a variety of costumes and combined lip syncing and singing to some popular songs (some in Spanish and others in English). It wasn't great art, but certainly an entertaining addition to dinner.
One menu item of note. The Taberna is really known for its meats, which is not what we were after. The fish was just OK. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the earlier courses and the dessert. This is a very small place, so be sure to make a reservation.

A lovely authentic Spanish restaurant. I took the advice from other reviewers and had the same positive experience. The waiter Dani was welcoming and extremely helpful - he translated the menu into English and gave us his own recommendations of what and how much to eat. There was a lovely atmosphere and the food was excellent. It's the real deal - don't miss out!

Took the family here on good friday and the food was great. I have read the other reviews and would agree that the service is top notch and very helpful. The wine list, though small, had some great slections and the meat was excellent.

I came here following t.a reviews and I ended up extremely satisfied.
The owner just made my dinner a pleasant experience suggesting the top dishes of la carte.
It is not cheap, over €40, but is is worthy to take a cab from center to enjoy it. Especially good for groups, but come early!! (21h is early in Spain...)

the service is excellent
every plate we order was very tasteful and particular (and explained from the sommelier/waiter)
suggested wine was cheap and the best Spanish wine I ever had
the price is not cheap, is not in the real city center and due that is little you have to book
