A popular place without a doubt, ideally located with a smattering of tables outside, a bar area for standing and drinking and a back room in Pullman colours. A good mix of locals and tourists with a limited menu to speed service. Cod croquettes were rich and creamy, jamon iberico super tasty but super pricey and the Rioja very passable.... More

This is probably one of those places you can't miss while in Madrid. It's a very traditional place for cod. They do the cod croquetas you could imagine. Fried cod, cold beer, nice environment Very close to Preciados street and Plaza de Sol. You will be in the heart of Madrid

Had the bacaloa and beer tapas - just a quick stop but it was filling and just right. There was a line but it moved quickly. Nice salty, crispy fish and refreshing beer.

This place is as old as the city (At least) I don't think it has changed much since they opened it so don't expect a fancy location, but don't be mistaken, it is worth a visit. They mainly do cod, being croquettes and fried cod the specialties of the house. Great break from your sightseeing or shopping, having a croquette... More

Part of a tapas tour to eat their famous codfish croquette and Spanish sweetened vermouth on tap. Having had other salt cod dishes before, this one was good but not my best. I did really enjoy the cold Spanish vermouth. Located not far from Puerta del Sol.

THis famous venue is great for popping into as the fish is the best ever,washed down with a glass of white wine at the bar.Seating is limited but it's more fun to be in the thick of it.

The cod fish is wonderful, perfectly cooked and great flavour. The croquettes are great too, but, too soft for me. It might look a bit crowded all the time, but don't worry, the queue flows quickly. My advice for you is, try to get a table before queueing, because that is the only problem, usually, there is no place to... More

If you come to Madrid this is a most. Order 'tira de bacalao' at the entrance and eat outside like locals due. Inexpenssive and you would come back for more.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
