... but I adore this unpretentious little place. It's always packed with happy customers, mostly people in their 30s but some older and some younger. There's a very good wine selection and the food is old-fashioned and filling.

Casa Mateos is a very small place, however we had one of the best meals in Madrid here, which was easier with a full explanation of the menu in perfect English. Patatas bravas, shark meal, sausages, 2 beers, a glass of wine, 2 coffees and 1 chocolate cake that we shared - 42 EUR. I can confirm what the others... More

This small place offers a great authentic food for a reasonable price. We totally recommend their chocolate cake which is absolutely amazing. Also the owners are amazing people who speak fluent english and were very helpful when choosing our meal.

The tapas were great but especially the hospitality and the friendlyness of the waitress/owner amazed us. She was very helpful in explaining us what was on the menu-card. Her wine-suggestion was excellent. A special remark also for the delicious chocolate cake. You should taste it! The ratio price/quality of the meal and wine were excellent…

We enjoyed everything about the experience! Alex greeted us and seated us at a table in a private room. It made the experience very romantic. She recommended several dishes and we were not disappointed! El Bienmesabe melts in your month with an amazing flavor! Alex helped make the evening special! We highly recomend Casa Mateos and will return!

Great place to eat and drink. Alex, the owner, is a great host and is very friendly and welcoming (and speaks great English which helped us). Food is rustic and tasty, the portions are good, and prices reasonable: the tomato salad was exceptionally tasty but everything we had, on two vists, was good. Good beer and great selection of wines... More

Very nice little restaurant with a history. Alex and rest of the staff (and other guests) were very friendly and helpful. Food was very good, simple but tasty. Prices are very reasonable. We would definitely like to return. If you want to be seated, it is probably better to make a reservation, because the space is limited.

We went to several fancy restaurants while in Madrid, but this simple neighborhood restaurant provided our best meal there. It's a small friendly place, and the food is simple but really great. The rabbit was excellent. Don't miss "The best chocolate cake in the world".

Neighbourhood Profile
La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is characterized by a young population and a bohemian vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other businesses popping up in the area. In the northern part of the neighbourhood, the Cava Alta and Cava Baja streets constitute the tapas center of Madrid, where each age-old restaurant serves up distinctive specialties like huevos rotos and patatas bravas. Locals have come here for generations to while away hours over drinks and tapas with friends. On Sundays and public holidays, the streets to the south of La Latina metro station transform into a giant open-air market full of locals sifting through tent after tent of art, apparel, and antiques. Any day of the week, the intriguing blend of the traditional and the hip make the streets of La Latina worth exploring.
