I have been visiting this restaurant since I was a kid. It’s a favorite for “Cordero asado” (roast lamb). Excellent service and a very traditional ambience. Appetizers and desserts are also great.

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

A friend of mine who lives in Madrid booked it for us. Book it when you arrive at the hotel. Maybe that will work.
