It is one of those "hidden" places everyone seems to know, since it is very difficult to get a table on the terrace and the hustle and bustle is constant. The views, especially at dusk, are spectacular and this is what makes this place special, since the service, despite being nice, is quite poor (we had to ask for our order three times) and the food is correct and at a good price without being exceptional. The "pimientos de padrón" (stuffed peppers) are spicy and the potatoes with dressings are good.
Here, you can have the best croquetas in Madrid. It might sound strange, but the spinach croquetas are delicious. The ham and cheese ones too!
A piece of trivia: years ago U2 chose this spot to do a photo-shoot and they’ve paid a visit every time they’ve returned to Madrid.
This is a fine restaurant that is located in El Escorial in Sab. Lorenzo. Its owner is a peculiar man, you have to meet him. It has loads of tapas in generous portions. The terrace is a joy in summer and in winter season since they put stoves and blankets.
We spent an afternoon in Patones de Arriba (highly recommended for a visit) when we stumbled upon this restaurant. It had an outdoor sign "Cana + Tapa 3 €". We entered and found a cozy place with curious décor, good treatment and good tapas - the ham toast is good size and quality. They also have a daily menu but we did not try it. Recommended.
This is a great little restaurant next to the prince's palace! It's a very good deal, with large portions and prices that will make you laugh! You can get a great menu for 18€ for 2 people! We recommend the breaded eggplant with gazpacho and the delicious pepper sirloin! Definitely a good, cheap option! Greetings!
It is a restaurant in a great location, near the old Church of the Capuchin convent, which was built in 1618. From the primitive Convent School that remains today there is only the church, one of the most beautiful baroque buildings in the city, recently restored and open to the public as a Castilian restaurant. Magnificent roasted asparagus with coarse salt, egg, or pork tenderloin, and a great dessert.
We were spending a few days in Alcala and ate at this restaurant that we liked the look of before we entered. The treatment of the owner who was chatting with us, was great, very friendly. There is a wide variety of tapas on offer, glancing at the menu we were spoiled for choice between servings, meals, budget menu ... As well as the good tapas we decided to eat the carne a la piedra, spectacular! Very rich! A great place.
