Wandered in off the street for a glass of vino. Great tapas. The whole place reeks of age. Why go for plastic restaurants when you can get authentic history ?

Visited on Friday evening, place became busy as the locals dropped in for meals and drink. We had tapas and beer. Both excellent. Staff really helpful and ensured we had a great evening.

Enjoyed their menu del dia which was good hearty traditional Spanish fare. Our server was so friendly and her English was better than our Spanish. Good beer, nice wine and lovely food served in a good old fashioned Taberna.

We hoped to eat some typical, simple Spanish food here. The interior is rather dark and definitely needs some renovation (not to mention the toilet). The waiter wasn't too nice and seemed to have no time for us. The place was quite busy at that...More

A great little pit stop for a couple of plates of tapas and a glass of wine. Friendly service and fantastic surroundings.

Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a
different country ... except it's hard to tell which
one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with
Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
