Set in a corner of the square, after a short queue to get in on a Saturday night had a great meal, bottle of house red and a brill waitress. Def recommend.

“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

The food and the wine were good; I had a salad with Jamon and Mozzarella that was delicious. The atmosphere is young and pleasant.
The only “not so nice” thing was that the tables are very small and too much near one of the others.

“Lateral-a fabulous introduction to Madrid nightlife!”
Reviewed 27 April 2012 via mobile

Lateral was recommended by our Hotel. The setting was beautiful, lit by lanterns, the queue was testament to its popularity! Food was terrific, both what we ordered and what we saw heading to other tables. Service was good, but slightly disorganised, but we'd definately head back next time we're in Madrid.

“Terrible service”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

We went to the place twice.
First time we were seated by a manager. Very small table for 3 people, were able to use the empty one net t us. Food was creative and good, reasonably price. Very prompt service although robot-like.
Second time the manager wasn't there so we were seated by one of the waiters. We took two tables in a half-empty restaurant, three of us. The waiter rudely informed in Spanish that we can't take two tables. I started explaining him in my broken Spanish that the table is too small for a party of three and if we were two separate parties of 1 and 2 he would've given us two tables anyway.
Still no response, insisting on taking one table.

So we just left leaving the waiter with his smirk.

Went to a place a couple of doors from this one, there is quite a few at the Santa Ana place.

My advice: don't even bother with the space, there are may better ones in the vicinity.

“Great food but service is unfriendly aalthough effective”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

As for tapas this should be your next spot. Not a typical bodega, more like a restaurant with inside and terrace tables. A lot of choice in food at reasonable prices. But the concept of service with a smile has not yet arrived here. Let that not put you off, the service is effective and for ther rest should be ignored. The food quality outweighs this minor setback.
