    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

    Where do I begin? It's all soooo good. To end, try the chocolate sex in a bowl. Other must do's Duck Taco Pato, Baby food jar El Potito, Dimsum de Arroz, bio veggies.......

    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.

    Really cool/famous Gastropub. They do funky spinoffs of traditional Spanish tapas; served in unconventional ways/deconstructed dishes. Made famous by Anthony Bourdain.

    Affordable prices for quality in small size portions. A normal sized dinner will require 3 + dessert. Around 25€ per pax.
