I didn't realize there were other floors to this restaurant as the ground floor was so inviting we stayed in the bar. Four of us came in for tapas after a futbol game. We tried Patatas Bravas for the first time; they were displayed in a highly decorative way we didn't see again. Enjoyed the atmosphere and all of our... More

Although there is room downstairs to eat and drink, most people seem to head for the roof terrace at El Viajero. On warm days this is crowded and no doubt buzzing but we were there on a cool evening when getting a table was easy. The mojitos at 8.80 euros were over priced but I'm guessing that most customers are... More

Amazing terrace in La Latina. Great view, friendly staff and good "tapas". It was just one more hot sunset in Madrid but they made it different - funny "water war" to transform the environment.

Have dined here twice on two separate trips to Spain. The atmosphere is casual yet energetic and sits on a bustling corner in the La Latina neighborhood. We enjoyed the chorizo, pulpo, grilled chicken salad, and a few drinks. Highly recommend the salad when you need a break from meat and bread whilst visiting Spain.

Friendly staff, nice finger food. You need to make reservations for the terrace if you want to avoid having to wait. Ideal for a relaxed evening.

Fun spot in a lively section of Madrid. Food and drinks were good but rooftop and a fun neighborhood atmosphere makes the place special.Way cool garden rooftop with beautiful city views. Staff was welcoming and did a fine job. Can get pretty busy and rooftop isn't large.

I adore the neighborhood of La Latina and this place is a real gem! Don't expect a little hole in the wall with super cheap eats and drinks, it's a bit pricey, but consists of three naturally lit levels of beautifully decorated walls and tall windows. Perfect for a drink with pals, or perhaps a quiet solo read over coffee.

Great fun tapas bar/restaurant on three floors - ground, first and roof terrace. we were on the first, which is light and airy. the service is cheerful and good. Get there early for a good choice of tables (early Spanish style, so normal UK style 1pm for lunch). the kitchen opens at 1.30 for lunch. incredibly good value - 3... 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.
