Situated up a side ride directly opposite the Cathedral on Gran Via del Colon. Follow the noise to this very busy bar. You will struggle to find a seat and table but do as the locals do and just order a drink and await your tapas. I have had a variety of tapas such as, paella, iberian ham, tuna, prawns and tortilla.
There is a menu available to order from. As a previous poster put the cold cheese/meat dish is very good.

Wonderful food, excellent service. The free tapas with your beer/wine are a great way to know what the food is going to be like and this one stands out from the rest. Would highly recommend. To get a good selection of cheese and meat all on one plate order the Tabla Castaneda Fria which is the cold selection and for the hot selection order the Tabla Castaneda Caliente. Loved it all.

Push your way through to the bar at this crowded local favorite for tapas a cut above the rest, including a peppery house pate served with ham and almonds and excellent free tapas, usually fishy. The pulperia across the street is an excellent place as well for pulpo a la gallega (octopus with paprika) and mini flamenquines of pork, ham, and cheese.

If you are in the area, a visit here for tapas is well worth while. It is not shatteringly different from many such bars. but it is typical and Spanish. The decor is classical rather than plastic, and the staff are very pleasant.

The food is good quality as is the wine, and not expensive. They had an itinerant guitar player when we were there, which I could have managed without, but I can see that many of the clients would have liked his addition to the atmosphere.

Not much more to add really, a pleasant stop for tapas.

A great place for traditional tapas. Try the Vermut. Yum.
