Got charged 9 Euros for two small glasses of red wine at this establishment. That’s about 3 Euros more than other restaurants and cafes charge. My fault for not ordering off the menu, but their fault for ripping off tourists. Give this place a miss.

This place is amazing. No tables or chairs, just a counter that holds up to twelve people. It's real simple... you order a glass of wine and as long as you are drinking, they bring you a variety of tapas - everything from paella to broth to marinated fish. All within an ambiance that favors the bulls over the matadors. Photos on the wall show the bull winning - or at least inflicting some distress on the bullfighters. The folks behind the bar are personable, welcoming and very entertaining. When the weather is nice, they have tables on the Plaza Mayor where you can watch the world go by as you enjoy your beverages. Great location and an excellent sangria.

Sometimes you don't care if they shake the money out of your pockets. The drinks weren't great but the bar is a monument.

Sitting in the Plaza Mayor in the sun on a January day - what could be better?
A cup of coffee from La Torro del Oro, attentive friendly staff, a great cup of coffee, and a bar depicting bull fighting memorabilia, and watching the world go by.
You'll find a cheaper coffee elsewhere, but not with this view, and it was the best coffee we'd had during our trip to Madrid.
