From the moment I walked in, I knew it would be great. It has a fun, casual decor, good wine and tapas selection, and the prices are very affordable. The staff is friendly and can speak sufficient English to help with ordering. They also have a cute bar downstairs.

This restaurant exemplifies a delicious simple tapas meal. The food is refined and high quality. The menu is simple and the drinks are delicious. The staff is beyond friendly and will help you order without a problem. The best part of the meal, which is saying something for how good the food is, is the price. This defines bang for... More

We ordered 6 tapas to split and we felt that half of the tapas were really good and the other half were just ok. The music was quite loud so it was hard for my husband and I to talk to each other.

We took the recommended 30€ menu for two people and it was such an amazing experience, we didn't want it to finish! All dishes are really original and tastefull (I'd like to highlight the desserts)! The service was so good and I'm sure we won't hesitate coming back if we visit Madrid again! It was a great discovery!

I went with a friend on a Thursday evening and we had no reservation. We selected the tasting menu, which arrived in three courses. Each tapas was delicious, and I especially liked the three dessert tasters that arrived at the end.

This place is one of the best restaurants I've been to. Very authentic and amazing food. No English menu but that's part of the fun. We ordered the tapas combination. It was very good. Tasty and great display. Also the Clamari was amazing, hands down the best calamari I have ever had. Absolutely loved this place. Had a great vibe... More

More of a bar feeling than restaurant feeling. The tapas were delicious. Book a table if you want to eat here. It was packed with people. No menu in English, but their Web page is so we used that one to understand the menu.

Neighbourhood Profile
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
