What a unique bar! Local with people coming and going! A warm welcome and super service. Lovely staff and a special mention to one of the staff who regaled us with his stories of “Andrea”! Brilliant! We’ll definitely be back! Oh and the salmon tapas...were delicious!More

Just the place to go for a quick drink and a chat. And a bite. Honest, nothing fancy, just a nice place for a stopover. Good place to pass the time before moving on to dinner.

Brilliant visit to Taberna la Delores. Stopped for a chilled-put beer and some local tapas. Great value, fast service, a far cry from the tourist traps you’ll stumble across as you wander around town. Definitely worth an early/mid evening visit.

Our family with two teens popped into this small corner pub a few min walk from Prado museum. Totally what a non tourist tabernacle is like- busy crowded. Great tapas, service atmosphere. Be ready for busy. Standing room only except for 4 small tables at...end of bar. Friendly staff.More

Love LOVE this place. It is my favorite Tapas bar in Madrid! The staff is absolutely amazing, Tapas are great, everything is great lol We travel to Madrid frequently and every time we are there we always go to this bar every evening before dinner....They make you feel so welcomed and they actually remember you! Couldn’t believe the reception we received after being unable to visit for the past two years. I can not say enough about how much I love this place :) Can not wait to return!More

As you are reading this in English, the most important info I can give you is that not only did they speak and understand fluently, but they were especially helpful in making us some tapas and a plate or two just based on our likes....Not always the case in some Tapas bars/Cafes, (or any restaurants) . So first the food was great. The drinks wonderful and the staff amazing. I've given this only 4 stars as the menu is limited but the service is clearly 5 ++ starsMore

A busy spot when I went at lunch filled with regulars and locals -- exactly what I was looking seeking. Customers have the option of dining in the restaurant or at the bar. It is a small place so when it fills up (130PM-2PM), it...fills up. Patrons seeking canapés and tapas can do so at the bar where an exceedingly friendly bar tender will take orders. For those who don't speak Spanish, they did have an English menu but the staff had very limited English. A wonderful experience for those seeking something unabashedly authentic.More

We wanted tapas for lunch and decided this taberna fit the bill. Seating is very limited, but we got there at 1:30PM, before the big rush, so we got a table. Being a local's place, the waiter spoke very little English, but we tried to...explain that we wanted him to choose a variety of tapas for us. There is a very reasonably priced platter where you can have 6 different tapas so that is what we ordered. It didn't disappoint. We had two tapas with meat and four with fish. We tried foods we never would have ordered on our own. It was delicious! By the time we finished, the place was packed. What an awesome experience.More

We wanted to sit to eat but the few tables were taken. The waiter assured us that we would have a table in a little while. Sure enough when someone else tried to get the table, he sent them away and gave it to us....They were pretty upset but we were very appreciative. We got a free tapa of chips and olives with our wine. We then ordered a half ration of ham and one of cheese. This was the right amount of food after a large, late lunch.Total cost 28 Euros.More

Crowded but welcoming. Awesome beer and plenty of tapas too choose from. Tourists welcome but plenty of locals here so you know the food is good. Much better than some other places we visited in the area. Highly recommended.
