We found this restaurant just wandering around the neighborhood and stopped by for a light lunchtime snack. We sat out on the street and just relaxed and watched Madrid go by and the food was fantastic. We came back later in the week for dinner and weren't disappointed. My personal favorite is the huevos rotas, which is like french fries... More

I will go back to this restaurant every time I am in Madrid! What could be better than sitting outside on a gorgeous summer night eating delicious tapas and drinking wine?

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.
