“Best choice for an unforgettable summer night in Madrid”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

This is one of the best tapas bars you could find in the center of Madrid. Fits perfect the best quality in the food & drinks with cheap prices of the Madrid bars. The menu has some delicious choices of the best spanish food, as Jamon Iberico, Brandada de Bacalao and one of the best croquetas you could ever try with gambitas & bacalao, served with a Salmorejo-Gazpacho sauce. Just explore the tastes of the food at En busca del tiempo. Typical Madrid cold little beers, fantastic red Rioja or white Penedes wines. Take place in one table, listen to the spanish music or just get involved in the Madrid night life with friends. Let the Madrid night spirit with you, you will never forget.

“Bustling, delicious, refreshing fun place for a drink and a quick bite”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

Came here as part of a work do, there were A LOT of us and we, perhaps rather naively, weren't expecting it to be so busy on a Thursday night but as the post-work socialisers started to disperse we all got a seat. The staff were helpful and pleasant and the food was delicious, mainly 'tostas' on the menu, I had a Jamon y queso which was delicious and well portioned, I also ordered patatas fritas for the table, also delicious. If you are in the Sol-Prado area, I would definitely recommend it although I wouldn't make a special trip from further afield. There is a very pleasant tapas bar called Taberna del Chato which I will review seperately.

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

This place is so good and so reasonable. Great selection if appetizers, and main dishes. The service is excellent. They explained everything on the menu and didn't try to rip you off. They even let us taste a bottle of wine to make sure it was suitable for our dinner.

“Excellent for breakfast!”
Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

Really good coffee and has a cheap menu with large portions - can't really go wrong with your choice of breakfast with a coffee for €2.30!! It is a typically Spanish bar/cafe and it has a good feel about it, and it is a locals haunt, which means it is good!! Menus in English and Spanish mean it is easy to order, and a friendly place to go.

“The time has stopped!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

The restaurant has two rooms, below a more relaxed ambient and in the first floor a more cosi and familiar one.
The staff was very professional and nice-not-intrusive, that I appreciated.
The portions are great and the price is fair, not cheap though.
We were seated in the second room that has lots of space and we could talk without hearing others' conversation.
