“Good beer and plenty of tapas to choose from”

El Anciano Rey de los Vinos
Ranked #77 of 923 Nightlife in Madrid
Attraction details
Reviewed October 30, 2011

Part 3 of our tour around Madrid taverns included a short stop on this one. Although the staff wasn't that friendly, the beer was good and so were the tapas - what more do you want? :D

While the location of this bar is lovely, across from the cathedral and down from the palace, the waiter for the outside tables was rude. Our Spanish companions were insulted and said this was the second time they had received such service; they will not return.
One of our party went inside (to use the toilets) and commented that the younger waiter seemed pleasant.
However a glass of vermouth, which is why we stopped, was 3.5euros when it is rarely more than 2 euros.
Location isn't everything. Next time we'll get our vermouth elsewhere and just sit in the garden outside the palace.

A friend and I spent a couple of hours sitting at the outside tables of El Anciano Rey de los Vinos drinking beer and watching people walk by. It was enjoyable and relaxing following rather intense sight seeing activities. The service was good and the beer was cold. Too, the complimentary snacks provided were appreciated. This casual restaurant is ideally located near a number of important sights in Madrid. It's a good place to take a break.
