Fodor's Review

The only thing typical about this popular tapas bar—so popular that it now has two locations on the same block (the other on the corner of Menéndez Pelayo)—are the Iberian hams hanging from the ceiling and the paper tablecloths; the quality and sophistication of the food, however, stand well out and above the crowd. Go to the bar for a quick bite, like fresh salty anchovies with bread and tomato, fried artichokes, or a bowl of salmorejo (a thick garlicky version of gazpacho) accompanied by a cold beer or a glass of wine. At the handful of tables, hungry locals share more elaborate fare: think sautéed rice with truffle and wild mushrooms, quail with sautéed onions, or a tomato-and-white tuna–belly salad. Note that it also serves half portions of many dishes.
