“Great restaurant, great service, great quality food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Not only the Tortillas are amazing, but the fish... you wouldn't expect in a restaurant called "Las Tortillas" to have such a nice fish quality, at the level of top restaurants in Madrid.
It is a must to have the "Flan de Queso" as a dessert, so good!

“Originality and tradition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

The tortillas are truly spectacular, taking an old traditional recipe to new highs by the addition of other techniques (such as topping it with an octopus carpaccio) or the combination with new flavors (e.g., truffle). But do not stop at tortillas! The vegetables with ham, the tomato salad, the foie gras dice, porcini croquetas and Iberic pork were also divine. Great service completed this very nice experience.

“Amazing authentic tortilla in this restaurant off the tourist track”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

This tortilla restaurant has been the best restaurant by far. The tortilla with the deep fried green peppers and ewe's cheese is divine and melts in your mouth. One tortilla is more than enough for two people and is incredibly filling. Usually to be accompanied by delicious beef tomatoes dressed in parmesan and balsalmic vinegar.

They also have amazing croquetas, some of the best I have savoured here in Madrid. I have yet to try the other dishes on the menu but this restaurant is usually busy and filled with well to do families or business men. Prices are a little steep for food but it is definitely worth it!

A tortilla starts at around 11 euros, other dishes vary from 9 - 15 euros. There is a huge selection of tortillas that you can choose from. It works out as approximately 25 euros - 30 euros per person including wine.
The staff are friendly and speak English, there is also an English menu. It is advisable to book a table!

This restaurant is definitely authentic and Spanish and is off the beaten tourist track, tucked in on a side street. It is full of locals who know the restaurant by reputation. Fed up with the run of the mill tortillas made from heuvina (synthetic egg replacement) when out and about in Madrid I can't recommend it enough.

Great for couples and romantic dinners.

“Very good tortillas.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Very traditional tortillas with surprising tops - try the tortilla with "pulpo"which is one of the best ones I tasted.

“The best croquetas and tortillas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Delicious croquetas and tortillas. Lots of choices for tortillas, I got dizzy after reading the many combinations.
We were walking around the area, coming from Sorolla Museum. Found this restaurant by chance in a small side street. We enjoyed eating a hearty lunch of croquetas, tortillas and paella. Cost of food is affordable. We would recommend this restaurant to all.
