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.

Having visited the Groups other restaurant in Barcelona, this was a must on our trip to Madrid - feeding vegetarians and kids with allergies is not easy (understandably). The restaurant has a bar menu which is served all day and a proper restaurant menu which is only available at lunch/ dinner time. We ate from the bar and dinner menu... More

A good restaurant with a fast service. Very friendly and attentive staff. We went for a sharing menu and all we have ordered was good. I recommend it for a casual lunch or diner.

The layout is like a big reverse L. The long bar leading to to the open kitchen with wood burning stove, communal and individual tables, bar stools and places to hang out is awesome. The main restaurant is like a 1970s college refectory. Flares, smiley badges and a VM combi parked outside would not be out of of place. Food... More

Everything we tried was a hit, prawns (like tempura) with the jalapeno sauce, steak tartar, lemon pie and the excellent coffee. And the sangria seemed nice but we had wine couldn't have the chance to try.May be next time:)Totally recommend this place. .At lunch time we webt and all tables were full.Make a reservation before you go.

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.
