Really good and tasty selection. The large ribeye was delicious & large enough to serve a table of 8.

Great option if you're looking for spanish cuisine in Madrid. I recommend: Tortilla de Patatas, Arroz de Gambas, Croquetas de Jamón, Pulpo, Rabo de Buey. Great value for money and a must visit if you're in Madrid!!

We visit Madrid on business several times a year and Taberna La Catapa is high on our list of restaurants. It is located in the Ibiza area of Retiro (a few minutes walk from the park) - a short taxi ride from the centre of Madrid and well worth the trip.You can eat in the bar area (from a varied... More

Ate here at our first evening in Madrid. Very friendly staff, great food and wines. Very affordable. Even went back another night, but the bar was completely full that night.

We went here early on Friday evening, around 8:30pm. It started to fill with locals shortly after we arrived, generally a good sign. The service was wonderful - one of the waitresses helped us through the menu as we don't speak Spanish well - this was a nice touch and very appreciated. The tapas itself was great, we had 3...

My wife and I shared every dish and enjoyed them all. The food was excellent especially their rice with mushroom and their potato truffle croquette. The red tuna tataki was also very tasty and highly recommended, as was their salmorejo. The Vina Gravonia 2005 white that we had with dinner made it all even better. But while the food was... More

Tried this restaurant based on recommendations on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. The service was really good and although the waitress couldn't speak any English she could see we were trying and got another waiter to help us. The curried mussels were delicious. We hadn't had much spice since leaving australia and we really enjoyed the curry flavour. Not the... More

Excellent food and service! The truffle and potatoes croquetas are one of the best I've ever tried. As well as the homemade titamisu. Very close to Retiro park. Definitely coming back!

If you want local food served by a VERY friendly staff in a comfortable and very local flair, THIS is the place. My wife and I loved it so much, we went to eat dinner here three times while in Madrid! Everything on the menu was excellent and we ate a wide variety of different dishes. The owner is a... More

This bar has a fine choice of tapas and renovates traditional tapas with an extra touch of some ingredient or other and with a modern presentation of the dish. This bar can get crowded, so you need to get there early. There is a good wine selection for wine by the glass and some of the tapas can be ordered... More
