Fodor's Review

Traditional taverns with tin-top bars, beer and vermouth cooled with stainless-steel coils, and über-efficient waiters are a dying breed in Madrid, but this one, just a couple of blocks from the Parque del Buen Retiro, is one of the best. It's always busy with locals clamoring over plates of sautéed wild mushrooms, fresh salty anchovies served with a cucumber and tomato salad (pipirrana), or clams in an Andalusian white-wine sauce. You can stop in for a quick bite at the bar—they'll serve you a free tapa with every drink—or enjoy heartier choices, such as the chickpea and king prawn stew, in the homey dining room at the back.
