Fodor's Review

The only thing typical about this popular tapas bar—so popular that it now has a new branch on a terrace inside the Reina Sofia Museum—are the Iberian hams hanging from the ceiling and the paper tablecloths; the quality and sophistication of the food, however, stand out well 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 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.
