We ate there on the recommendation of the hotel concierge and it was very good. Tapas were terrific and we were able to score a table on the street. Worth the visit.

A self serve,.no frills place. You pay for your beer or vermouth at one register and your fish croquettes or fried cod fish at an other. Careful with a stray fish bone!! Delicious and ICONIC. It is not a place you would linger at so...More

We had a very nice baccalao and salad. The service is good as well. Better to book in advance if you want to seat in the restaurant area.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
