This was our first stop in Madrid. We had reservations made a week before. When we arrived, the ancient person who opened the door was rude in asking if we had a reservation. We brushed it off as clearly he had been there for decades as evidenced by his pictures on the wall. The food was decent, the bathrooms clean.... More

I was part of a group of Leicester fans in Madrid, this place was recommended to one of us. We were told that it's not cheap but the food was fantastic. That's exactly what we experienced. Everything we tried was delicious esp mushrooms and garlic,peppers, prawns, for the main I chose the suckling pig.

One of Madrid's classic gems. The food was excellent, and the staff friendly. Our waiter made a point of sticking to Spanish, but between my attempts at Spanish, and a bit of understanding on his part, we managed to order and have a lovely evening. We started with melon wrapped in Iberico ham. Our reservation was at 1015p, so we'd... More

This place seems to be a bit of a tourist trap with plastic menus in amongst an old grand restaurant setting. The food itself was good but not exceptional and certainly not worth the price. We paid about €90 for a starter, main and dessert along with two glasses of wine. The highlight of the dishes was probably the Albondigas.... More

Top shelf dining. We arrived at opening with no reservation, and I think we were lucky to get a table as in no time the restaurant was full and there was a line of people waiting for a tablet in the bar. Excellent food. Wonderful service. I had the roasted lamb & my wife had the Hake in verde salsa.... More

After doing quite a bit of research, this place kept coming up with great reviews, so decided to give it a go. We arrived without a reservation, but they were so busy we were turned away and we booked for the next day. The next day we arrived very excited for our amazing dinner, but was thoroughly disappointed. There was... More

Lucia, the octogenarian owner, still walks the floor to ensure your meal was to your liking. The portions are plentiful and tasty. The grilled merluza is excellent. Save room for the the vanilla flan - it is worth the calories !

Staying in La Latina

Neighbourhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighbourhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
