It used to be one of the best Mexican restaurants in Madrid. I used to dine there once a month at least, about 4 years ago. I came back this month and I was negatively surprised. The food was just bad. I ordered a aguachile...More

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
