Fodor's Review

Few national dishes raise more intense debates among Spaniards than the tortilla de patata (Spanish omelet). A deceivingly simple dish, it has many variations: some like it soft with the eggs runny, others prefer a spongy, evenly cooked result. At this lively restaurant you'll find crowds of Spaniards gobbling up one of the city's finest traditional versions of the tortilla, as well as some unconventional ones—potatoes with octopus, potato chips with salmorejo (a gazpacho-like soup), tortillas with garlic soup, with codfish and leek stew, with truffles (when available), and with a potato mousse, to name just a few—that are best enjoyed when shared by everyone at the table. The menu includes plenty of equally succulent non-egg choices and a green-apple sorbet that shouldn't be missed.
