Perhaps I am disappointed that I was not seated during a bustling, boisterous tapas session late in the evening (as so many travel writers have indicated). Obviously not everyone eats after eleven p.m. in Madrid. I didn’t. In larger Spanish cities, I assume there are...More

It started with a complementary starter of cured beef & ended with a complementary aperitif. In between, the Liam Neeson lookalike gentleman served us course after course of amazing food. The steak with special sauce was so juicy and melt-in-your-mouth. The jamon croquettes were so...More

When myself and a mate arrived at La Curruteka we were greeted with a big ole grin from the bartender who swiftly put us on the lovely table our heart desired. Being 2 simple Australians who only know english(and we still haven't mastered it) we...More

Smallish bar on a quiet side street just off Calle Atocha. Good food and large portions. We called here twice and were more than happy each occasion. Scrambled egg with black pudding recommended.

After reading the excellent reviews, I had to try La Curruteka. It was less than a block from my guesthouse---and also quite close to the Reina Sofia Museum. It's a very small space, and several times, when I'd walked past in the evening, looked quite...More

Randomly came across this bar / restaurant. The people, food and atmosphere was amazing. If you blink you'd miss it. Highly recommend and stopping for a glass of wine and tapas. Ridiculously good and reasonably priced. 5 glasses of great wine, tapas and a meal...More

Shared the curruteka salad, smoked meat, and meatballs with a friend. It was all very tasty and more than enough for two people. The service was very good and English friendly. Prices were excellent given the portion sizes.

Had loads of food for four people at a total of €50 including a pitcher of Sangria for €8. This off the beaten path jewel was not too crowded on a weekday night. Service was attentive and friendly, and the food was worth every cent!...More

Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a
different country ... except it's hard to tell which
one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with

traditional African clothing convene outside their

other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
