    A great place hidden in a supercosy square. Nice but too dark. Dishes are small but tasty. Don't forget gyoza filled with ropa vieja.

    Amazingly creative tapas, great music and not expensive at all. Need to have the red tuna and the cheese cream dessert.

    Fantastic place for tapas! Cozy ambience, nice for an easy lunch or an intimate dinner. Contemporary, filling, interesting and everything is full of flavour. The artichokes are a must try!

    The Gyozas de ropa vieja are SO good. The tapa de viera was very tasty as well. I wouldn't order the burger there though, it was a bit underwhelming. But overall, really good vibes!!

    The best tapas place in Madrid. We were there for merienda. Squid sandwich is a must have. La Rusa (Russian Salad) is very fresh and tasty. Finally the "cecina" should be tried.

    Modern take on tapas. Great food, but some hits and misses. Must try El Potito and vieiras. The restaurant itself is spacious, modern and trendy. Great bar area where you can actually sit at the bar!

    I usually don't trust Anthony Bourdain's recommendations but this time he's spot on. Standouts were "El Potito" and the pulpo.

    Tapas are interesting and yummy in a street foody way - same goes for presentation and ambience. Would order the chicken wings and tortilla brandade again! Salt lubina was fun to eat

    Excellent, unique take on tapas "Deconstructed" not the best word but pretty accurate. Many dishes are super rich in flavor. Juan Palomo (picture in tip) is basically a DIY dessert.

    You have to try the potito, veal cheeks and taco with duck. The place itself is fun, modern and hip, as well as the dishes-they take a fun turn on traditional tapas.

    Perfect tapas. If you are lucky, they will even bring you a small tree of herbs that you will have to cut yourself.
