My partner and I ate here on our first night in Madrid and would have happily eaten here for the rest of our stay! The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing. Our server recommended our tapas and her recommendations were spot on! Meatballs were amazing as was the black pudding parcel. Would thoroughly recommend and would absolutely return.

This is a must in Madrid. Small authentic & fantastic homely, flavoursome tapas & excellent prices. It's small so you may look in & think you'll go somewhere bigger with tables. Don't, you need to experience this food. There are tables downstairs although we were happy to simply prop up the bar, have a chat with Michael, the chef, waiter, barman & tourist information centre!! The meatballs are simply to die for. The servings are generous & you are provided with complimentary small tastes tapas as well as an excellent selection from the blackboard menu which will no doubt satisfy anyone. It wont break the bank either, excellent value. Went back several times & is on my list for any return trip. Highly recommended!!!

We went here after it showed up on a gluten free website and we went back a second time and may go again before we leave!!, it's outstanding for coeliacs. Our daughter 9 is coeliac and it's hard to find somewhere that she can safely eat at and it also be enjoyable for everyone. We had lovely tapas here and drinks two nights and the bar lady/server/dishwasher and everything else is just lovely! She does a hundred jobs flat out the whole time but she has time to chat away and is very quirky. Her husband (?) is a great guy too who speaks better English than her and was there on the second visit. We all ate the gluten free and it was good usually we only leave it for her but it tasted so good we all enjoyed it. The price was the same for gluten free as well which is most unusual. Cheap food and drinks, interesting atmosphere and a great vibe. Highly recommend. There were three other places recommended on the tapas gluten free circuit but don't bother as one is closed and the other two had no idea what we were on about!!! This is the one and only!!!!

We would like to thank all the other reviewers for recommending this little Taberna/ Tapas place. It was easy to find in the bustling Latina district. It is a tiny place but even on a Sunday evening it was packed with both locals and tourists. The waitress was friendly, if a little manic as she raced around this busy little place ensuring that everyone was happy. The service was excellent as was the tapas. 5 tapas were sufficient to for 3 adults to share along with a complimentary starter and palate cleanser at the end. It was fantastic value for money: 5 tapas, three beers and two wines cost just over €50.
