We eventually settled in La Chata after our fruitless trek up the length of Cava Baja, our disappointing experience at El Bonanno, and our despondent return back down past the empty bars of this supposedly lively street! La Chata is a pleasant enough place, the...More

Its La Latina, so its a mix of places targeting tourist and those catering to the locals - this is one of the locals that is just away from the heady tourist centre of La Latina. Fried Red Mullet (salmonete) and the Fried Calamares -...More

What a memorable evening, thanks to our Spanish brother-in-law! Calamares are perfect, to be continued in the same street for other specialties...

Last year I was in Madrid and for bad luck we choose this restaurant to dinner. Should have been a good restaurant 30 years ago but not anymore. The decoration looks tipycal but the food is a totally disaster. An entrance of potatoes full of...More

One of my absolute favourite places to have raciones (tapas servings) in Madrid. And I've tried quite a few! Full of locals enjoying a Night out. Try the cheese plate. And the croquetas. And the Bulls tails! And remember to check out the cool tile-facade...More

The food was great, and so was the service. Tried the mix of tapas, for two people and it was excellent.

Behind the lavishly tiled facade, La Chata looks for all the world like a neglected outpost of the past. The bullfighting memorabilia may not be to everyone’s taste, but this is an essential stop on a tapas tour of La Latina, Madrid. That is if...More

Quirky old ambiance, cheap wine, average tapas and a young lady serving us who was clearly having a bad day! This is a homey tapas joint, not the Ritz ... keep that in mind and you'll be OK!

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
