Go in a real environment with Madrid locals for a wonderful food. The Spanish tortilla is flawless, the callos are amazing. The service by Rosa is wonderful. It is a place to enjoy and feel at home.

Now that tapas and raciones (portions) are fashionable is great to go to a place where they served the traditional ones with great quality. One of the best places in Madrid in my opinion. The service is very good, they are professionals who know what they are doing.

We were looking for a local place to go to eat the famous "tortilla de patata" and some additional things, and we found this spot! Not only the food was great, but the service was outstanding! The lady knew we were not locals and took the time to explain in detailt what it is, how to order and gave us... More

The location and bar/restaurant itself is very understated. And it can be. By far the best tortilla in Madrid. Its worth the embarrassment of visiting everyday for a week while I'm on vacation. It's also worth the embarrassment of ordering two tortillas for myself. They understand. The rest of the menu is great too. Can't miss.

I said on my previous review that I would call back for some tortilla and so I did. We managed to squeeze in at the bar and ordered some drinks. I then noticed a couple of elderly ladies sitting down and asked them about the tortilla they were eating. Neither had ordered a full tortilla, but rather a pincho each.... More

I am on a mission to find the best tortilla de patata in Madrid and provide an unbiased review about the bars and restaurants that serve them. I have been to Sylkar, El Meson de la Tortilla de Gabino, Juana la Loca, and Bodega de La Ardosa, and Cerveriz and tried their regular tortilla de patata. Sylkar's tortilla was very... More

We were aware this is renowned for its tortilla but we had no room for one we barely had room for the cañas and tapa of crisps and chorizo. However, a group behind us were cutting into their tortilla and it looked delicious so we will make sure there's a hole in the stomach marked 'Sylkar tortilla' next time we... More

A couple of friends (lifelong Madrid residents) took us to try the tortilla here, among other things. The tortilla simply defies your typical perception of the tortilla because it's not a gigantic block of egg and potato. Instead, it's a deliciously gooey concoction, and they clearly take pride in their preparation. We had a great revuelto de morcilla, also, and... More
