Description: Nice tavern located on the most central and commercial zone of Madrid (walking distance to la Puerta del Sol and Plaza de Santa Ana). Ideal to make a stop along the way to taste its tapas or to have dinner sitting at one of its small rooms. Very varied menu of Spanish portions and bite-sized appetizers. Kind employees. Kitchen open to the public for directly dealing with the chef. Sangría. Cocktails.

Having a Latin background, I've tried different tapas in a bunch of different restaurants and cities - but I must say the ones from Taberna del Chato are unique! Do not miss the croquetas de jamón (ham), pollo al curry (chicken) and the solomillo teriyaqui (of tender sirloin). Their menu is complemented by other side dishes, a la carte meals and desserts, if you're that hungry. The sangría is delicious and their list of cocktails is creative. The restaurant is located in the trendy and bohemian downtown Madrid, but still conserves its authenticity and should definitely not be considered a tourist trap. It is small and cosy enough, with a friendly and quick service. The bill for 2 people was 32 euros and we more than satisfied.
I'll go there again soon! :D

Good food, wonderful service, relatively affordable. Go for the iberian ham and partridge pate! Come here if you're looking for pintxos and tapas.

I went to this restaurant with one other person and the meal was a little under 30 euros. We didnt order very well but the things we ordered smartly (like the mini hamburgers) were delicious and the service was excellent. There was a waitor that spoke english which made things much easier as well.

The place is simple, beautiful and on point. The menu is not overly complex but as you will see the menu description doesn't do the food justice. We ordered the pollo al curry, pollo crujiente, tartar de bonito alphas, solomillo teriyaqui and last but not least the solomillo de credo con cebolla confitada. Each dish stepped up the bar on the next. We even ordered several again because they were so great. Please don't let the simplicity fool you... Try this place and you'll leave with a smile and craving just a little bit more.
