Very nice little place with good Spanish wines and very good tapas. I had pimentos a la Padron and several other tapas including a beautiful escalivada. Well priced bottle of Ribera del Duero accompanied our unassuming meal. The only non-spanish thing were Mezcals ordered after the meal and they were up to par. This place seems to have a loyal...

Jaleo is a great low key Tapas Bar in the Polanco neighborhood. It's where you can come an enjoy amazing tapas in a intimate unassuming restaurant. The service is very good as well as the variety of options on the menu. Highly recommended to experience another type of cuisine in the city.

The food was excellent and the service was timed nicely! Drank the house vermouth which was sweet along with a couple of excellent... More

Excellent! It was like to feel in the culinary space of the flavors, sounds and feelings of the Iberian peninsula. It was like getting back to tapas in San Sebastian with high quality. Great place to sit outside or indoors. Great variety of tapas, nice ham, great croquet as. Do not miss the opportunity to visit this great place.

I arrived probably too early but got excellent service nonetheless! I was able to sample a variety of tapas coupled with a very good catalonian wine. Started with some shrimp croquettes that were a flavor explosion in the mouth. Then had a "pulguita if solomillo, poached onion & brie" which was a delicate and tender. After that it was bean...

Really enjoyed our dinner with cousins at Jaleo, all the tapas dishes and drinks we ordered were delicious. We just couldn't get enough. However some dishes are pricey and on the smaller side, the bill can add up quickly. Other than that a delicious place to go hangout.

It is a great place to spend a nice afternoon with friends. The vibe is super casual, the service and the food is great... Do not miss the chocolate dessert with olive oil and sea salt! Is amazing!

Because it is in the restaurant area around the Park , Jaleo think they can charge as much as their classy neighbours . But what they offer really is a good tapas bar in an enlarged corridor with not very comfortable furniture . The food i tried ( arroz negro con mariscos ) was correct ; The service was efficient...

This is a nice little Tapas bar in Polanco - which is a very classy area. The food is great, vast array of drinks at good prices. Loved the cosy environment that came with good service. The menu has seafood, meat and vegiterean dishes alike. They also have special dishes each day so make sure to check that out. Went... More
