At first, I couldn’t understand why this bar was so highly rated. I walked in, saw the ordinary-looking bar and nearly walked out!
But then I ordered a vermut rosso, and it was perfect: just the right amount of ice, with an anchovy-filled olive, slightly dirty, beautifully herbaceous and with a perfectly extracted piece of orange rind.
What I also like about the place are the bar snacks. Their tortilla is superb — rivals the Bar Nestor (San Sebastián) tortilla in my book. They also were very generous with serving crackers and nuts, which only encourages you to stay longer.
Went twice with my partner during a 6-day trip to Madrid. Would definitely go back.
