Visited the restaurant with some Spanish colleagues who recommended it as being "authentic" Madrid, our hosts chose the dishes for us and every one was a pleasure - the tuna on pickled leeks, cheese platter, risotto, chorizos etc were all a delight. If you want...More

Took the lunch based on guidance of Michelin city guide. What a lunch for a very reasonable price. (12.50€!!!) Extra a delicious glass of red wine and dessert! Incredible place to be, away from tourism in a small dark street.More

Word of mouth brought us here to the Cava Alta, a quiet peaceful parallel to the hustle and bustle on Cava Baja nearby. The locale is warm, cozy, very inviting, that kind of "Just what I was looking for!" surprise. The menu is best approached...More

We went on a very quiet night, which meant that the restaurant lacked in ambiance, though it was comfortable and nicely appointed. However, this did have the advantage that we could talk a lot with the matire'd who had an extensive knowledge of local wines...More

Small and cozy restaurant in Madrid, quiet and tourist-free even though it is still very centrally located. They have a very large wine selection which is always nice, food is all right.

La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique
personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly
old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among
charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like
yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is
characterized by a young population and a bohemian
vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection
of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other
