We found the service a bit abrupt and the food nothing special. We tried the tapas featured in the photo for the place which was chicken, soy sauce and cooked onions. The only problem was that the chicken was overdone so the dish was not that delicate and tasty. Other criticisms were that it all dishes came with fine fries... More

Cosy small restaurant with friendly service and good food. Especially, the ox tail and seafood canneloni were very tasty. Good value for money.

Typical small setting with larger plates to share. Best 2 dishes were squid with black ink and de-boned oxtail. Rich and full of flavour. Beautifully presented. Fantastic service Very very happy.

Quite a small and compact restaurant but it certainly packs a punch. Warm and friendly greeting as soon as you enter, browse the menu and then take advice from the staff on portion size, what a great idea. Food is freshly cooked, tasty and very reasonably priced, well worth finding.

Although Calle Cava Baja is stuffed with restaurants, we tried this one because of the good reviews on TA. Sadly, we only managed to squeeze in before they closed for lunch. I say sadly, because it was empty and we just had time for a single course but I'm so glad we tried it. We had a tomato and goat's... More

Staying in La Latina

Neighbourhood Profile
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 businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighbourhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
