This is a very quiet place in a secondary street. Tapas are very good quality, specially hamburgers and cheese. Also solomillo meat.

Great neighborhood near prado and the arches. Excellent bar. We went and it was very quiet. We went for tapas and ended up having gin and tonics (a major Madrid trend). I went because of the high ratings of a.n.E.I on Trip Advisor for Tapas. I think generally the tapas were pretty good but the tuna salad that was highly recommended on Trip Advisor was not great -- really not that great. Everything else was excellent, including the gin and tonics which were truly special. I imagine it would be a lot of fun on a busier night but it was quiet when we were there.

It became a instant classic even it opened not long ago. To taste the great tapas of a truly homemade Spanish cuisine in such a great atmosphere is one of the best experiences of visiting Madrid. I bring there all my foreign friends if a have friends coming over. Great Ensaladilla Rusa (Best I ever have), different cuts of meat, Tuna in all varieties, Croquetas.... I simply don't know what to chose. After dinner or lunch, a good served long drink makes it complete.
Best of it is great price for the top standards of quality

It has everything you might desire for a afternoon/evening night out... quiet location with great view of La Puerta de Alcala, with a really welcoming atmosphere. No matter what you order, it will be tasteful and your appetite will be satisified.
I´d point out there "ensaladilla rusa" and "pinchos"

I absolutely love this restaurant. It's has a very nice ambiance, with a mix of young and hip spaniards, business men, and families, enjoying either a meal or drinks. The terrace has a great view of Puerta de Alcala, so for tourists it's like a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. And the food is amazing! It's the perfect place to have Spanish traditional dishes and tapas and not be overwhelmed by the experience. I am a fan of their croquettes, the 'ensaladilla' and their 'vegetable tempura', but to be honest everything I've eaten there is really good.
