We visited Pata Negra without a reservation and they very kindly squeezed us in! Seemed like a v busy spot with great atmosphere. We had a few plates of tapas and a lovely bottle of red and all was very reasonably priced.

We had dinner here yesterday after reading the great reviews online. It didn't disappoint at all. Every single dish was delicious, we shared around 12 between the 3 of us. Exceptionally delicious were the garlic shrimp, the mushrooms and the salmon with oven vegetables. Top!

We've eaten here numerous times & loved the food every time. The space is very nice, although a bit small so it fills up fast & reservations are always a good idea. The waiters are very attentive & helpful as well so we always have a fun time here too. Have never eaten tapas in Spain so can't compare Pata... More

This is a fun place. Good service, tasty tapas ( some chili might be added to the Gambas al ajillo) Local and tourists visit the place. The waiters are very pleasant. For a large crowd that wants to have fun I do recommend. Remember to book a table otherwise you might miss out.

Spanish style food bar, good choice of meals, try the cold tomato soup. Very good wines and ham. It's a great place to spend with your partner or friends. Booking is not easy but possible.

I came here last summer and again this winter both times were very very good. Waiters were very helpful and friendly and picked out a very nice wine. The food was lovely and came out pretty quick. I love the way it wasn't super expensive either but that's just budapest. I'd recommend this place 100%

Tried to get a table the other day, but the place was packed, so we went the next day instead at around 16.30. The food arrived incredibly fast after we ordered. We had 6 different dishes and they were all good and tasted fresh. The chorizo in red wine sauce was delicious.
