Lovely informal, dining room and a bar area. Frequented by people over 50, at least as we've experienced it. Sometimes the place is overflowing with people of all ages. We ate dinner here twice, as it was suggested by locals. The food is tasty and service is friendly, with all the wait staff watching for your needs. They twice complemented us an after dinner liqueur. The best dish we had there was the fried chunks of fish - something about the batter. The main plates are plentiful and this leads me to think that many people share. So the fish with a green salad and dessert may be plenty for two.

It is a typical Spanish tavern located in the middle of latina area. The botilleria offers tourist menù and different alternatives of daily food. I tried tortilla menù that was fine and served with good wine. The plates (one of tortillas and one of cake) was good but small variety if related to price (25 euros for two). Said that, suggested for light stop and cheap price

We were made very welcome in this lovely local restaurant by the owner, who was very helpful, if a little mischievous. The food was great. The little crispy shrimp pancakes were special and it was all very tasty. Wine was good & great value too.

Though the owner's English is not great he was keen to answer our questions and to explain the food (which was interesting, if not essential), and he enlisted the help of a regular to help too. The mischievous was when he came to the table with a free taster of a local delicacy with comic explanations of what it was. It turned out to be tripe (cooked it appeared in cows feet?), which was surprisingly quite nice (though we not sure we'd have eaten a whole plate of it).

A very enjoyable meal - topped of with a free liqueur.
Eat here - its good and fun.

Staying in Madrid with friends, one of whom is a resident, we were lucky to visit places she particularly liked. This, which is in the La Latina area of the city, was super. The squid was so good, we had two portions. The service was charming, and the tiny shrimp pancakes are delicious.
