“Nice staff, relaxing atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

We ended our evenings in Madrid here with a glass of sangria and a friendly atmosphere. Several of the waiters spoke English and were very attentive to our needs. Nice place to sit outside and relax.

“Not at all bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

food was nice, good central location and easy to find. Pretty reasonable priced too. Good if you're passing by but not worth a special trip as there are far more authentic tapas places with a greater variety and quality in the area. The service was okay though and they handled our large group well.

“Jamon,Jamon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

During this trip, I was staying at the nearby great Hostal Ballesta and went out to watch the returning Spanish team parade fresh from their success in Euro 2012.The route took them right through Gran Via and I pitched up in Don Jamon to await the homecoming heroes. I stood by the bar and drank refreshing cold beer.The custom in a lot of Spain is to serve complimentary tapas with a drink and this establishment was no exception.It took a little longer than expected for the parade to pass by which meant I was fortunately able to sample their (recommended) Sangria and enjoy jamon iberico,salami and as others have mentioned, a delicious tortilla. The focus here is predominantly on jamon although a wide variety of cheese is also available.Most products are also sold for take away including drinks and sandwiches at very reasonable prices.

“Great Jamon!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

Fantastic tapas bar although mostly am and cheese. But what ham! Fantastic melt in the mouth. Great ambience and frequented by locals which is always a good sign. Will definitely return when next in Madrid.

“Lots of Jamon!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

This 'tapas' bar had mostly different plates of ham. Not a whole lot of different tapas. Nice ambiance.
