Do not be put off if there is a queue, it's 100% worth it. The cod croquetas were the best i've ever had! Amazingly creamy and satisfying! I didn't have the battered cod but i had an empanadilla with mince beef and that was absolutely gorgeous as well. The pastry was lovely and flaky and the filling was delicious. The... More

The road is long here. But the wait is spectacular food. You have too wait a while on the line to purchase the portions. But once you get served the freshly and cleanly fried and breaded cod portions and croquetas with a hot bechamel interior, you are in for the best of eatin times. I have been cooking codfish for...

Perfect traditional tapas spot. Loved by locals, right in the center by puerta del sol... make sure you stop by and have some Bacalao (fried cod fish) and some CAÑA (beer)... be a local in the middle of a very touristic radius.

Right place to try and enjoy bacalao, interesting recipes and fresh cooking. Very good service and great choice of vines. It's very bussy place so reservations are required.

Very busy place with mostly local people on a mid-week evening. You can line up for freshly cooked food and eat it standing up, as many locals do, or wait for a table. Service is efficient and the food is fresh and reasonably priced. Order a selection of small dishes of food, then order seconds for the ones you like... More

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.

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.
