Waiter was fun and generous and we had a great time and meal. Portions are on smaller side , bread is excellent and the menu is limited in size. Easy to get to and lots of locals. Some shared tables and you need a reservation. Anchovies were perfect and the ahi tacos were simple small and fast to eat. Also... More

We stopped in Bar Tomate on a weekday morning for breakfast, and absolutely loved it. They have free wifi, which is great when you're traveling without a data plan. The posh business men and women of the neighborhood clearly love it, too, since it was packed with people grabbing breakfast or coffee with colleagues. Both my boyfriend and I ordered... More

We enjoyed a family meal for 4 on a busy Saturday 10th December 2016. We had a little wait for our table but once seated we soon ordered and received our chosen meals. I highly recommend the salmon with wild rice and teriyaki sauce. The fillet steak was wonderful. Avoid the cod it was very salty dish. The service was... More

My daughter and I shared a quick meal here from 9:30-11PM and loved every bite. Great atmosphere, open kitchen at back and food reminded us of home (Sydney) but with a Spanish touch. We intend to return here for a breakfast. Its full of locals - no tourists.

I had a wonderful time in this restaurant where I gathered with a close friend to have lunch. I had a pizza while my friend has a squid risotto, both delicious. I told the waiter I'm italian just to be sure the pizza would be made as I like it to be and I have to tell, no regrets on... More

Great experience always. Fantastic menu, one of the best tortillas in Madrid, and very fun/cool vibe. I never miss hitting this place for lunch or dinner.

We ate at Bar Tomate as a large group for dinner. Food was good, especially the beef, but portions could have been bigger. Drinks too could have been stronger, perhaps with an extra shot of alcohol. The décor and ambiance was very nice albeit the music being slightly too loud which made hearing conversations a bit strained. For a large... More

Bar Tomate is popular and rightly so. The food is very good. The steaks and bacalau (salt cod) were excellent. The service was quick and friendly. If you're early for dinner, say 8.30, you'll probably get a table. Anytime after that, it's best to book as the restaurant fills up quickly. Definitely recommended for an informal supper.

Very good restaurant with a fast service. Everything we tried was a hit (pizzas, tarta tatin, fondant de chocolate). Worth a visit.

The place is posh. The quality of food seems really trying to be trendy with fresh ingredients , but it's not amazing. Ok service.

Staying in Chamberi

Neighbourhood Profile
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighbourhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
