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.

“Great Sangria! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

I was there the other day with my friends.
The sangria was really great! I couldn't stop drinking it!
The food was also tasty and the prices quite reasonable.

We visited having seen the reviews on here and having looked at the menu in the window. We had the rapid for 2 which includes sangria or wine. This is a fixed selection of dishes plus four you choose yourself. Without exception they were all fabulous, if we are back in Madrid we will be back here. I must also mention the friendly and efficient service.

“A perfect mix between a traditional Tapa and more surprising alternatives”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

Very close the la Plaza Mayor there is this very small welcoming place, the menu offers a good variety of options , from which is very hard to choose, we asked the waitress for her recommendation all of which were great they were so good that we actually came back the following day.

“Perfection throughout!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

If you're in Madrid, find this place, it's as simple as that, if you don't, I reckon you've missed out!
The welcome is as warm and friendly as anywhere we've encountered and the tapas is faultless. We opted for the fixed menu for €15 per person for a number of predefined dishes (partridge pate, crispy chicken, egg ham and fries), 4 choices from the menu (we had tuna salad, pork sirloin, prawn baskets, Iberian ham) with a jug of sangria (or wine if you prefer) - every aspect of every dish was absolutely spot on, wonderfully tasty and nicely presented. We followed this with chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream (and a free shot!)....the perfect end to the perfect meal - as good as it gets and for a very fair price. This place thoroughly deserves it's high placing!
