Enjoyed their menu del dia which was good hearty traditional Spanish fare. Our server was so friendly and her English was better than our Spanish. Good beer, nice wine and lovely food served in a good old fashioned Taberna.

We hoped to eat some typical, simple Spanish food here. The interior is rather dark and definitely needs some renovation (not to mention the toilet). The waiter wasn't too nice and seemed to have no time for us. The place was quite busy at that...More

A great little pit stop for a couple of plates of tapas and a glass of wine. Friendly service and fantastic surroundings.

This would ideally rate 3.5 stars if that were permitted. It is a very traditional Madrid eatery, with a bar serving tapas at the front, in an atmosphere of dark wood, bulls' heads and stools to sit on. At the back a restaurant with rather...More

Went in 2014, loved it! Went again in 2016 and fell in love again! I enjoyed every tapas the place offered. My favorite 2 tapas were the white anchovies tapas and the snails in sauce. I recommend this place to anyone visiting Madrid.

I was recommended this place by a local, which is always a good thing when looking for somewhere new to try out. The Taberna Antonio Sanchez has been around since 1830 - you can feel the history as you step through the door - from...More

This old-fashioned restaurant and bar does good traditional tapas and excellent wine. It also has a restaurant in the back, and serves a competitively-priced menu del dia. The small grilled peppers with sea salt and garlic - pimientos del padron - are very moreish, and...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
Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
