Away from the bustle of La Latina, La Trastienda with its tranquil setting has a friendly buzz to it. It is spacious and brightly decorated in green and oak panelling and boasts stunning views of the Plaza De Gabriel Miro and Garden Vistillas.
Jose Ignacio Notario and Ben Jackson are the founding partners. Jose, who previously managed one of the most successful bars in Madrid, wanted to create his ideal bar and Ben, from London, and a lover of everything Spanish, was keen to back Jose in achieving his dream.
The Tapas are excellent and very good value, with something for every budget. The wines, beers and spirits have been carefully sourced and the cocktails deserve particular mention.
El Mundo

" On the food front, we recommend the "Anchovies in vinegar" homemade with a traditional recipe, and their very high q uality meats and preserves, such as the "Ramon Franco" mussels or the cockles from the "Rias Baixas "  El Mundo

" Pay special attention to the variety of "tostas" such as the one with cured ham, vegetables with cheese topping or the cod with "salmorejo" (andalusian tomato dip), all of them large and very reasonably  priced. "  El Mundo

"..............conquering palates with traditional and well made dishes" El Pais

" This friendly and cosy pub is one of my favorites in the area "

"I love this bar, nicely restored, overlooking the Vistillas Park. With good weather the tables outside are a joy. The atmosphere is perfect for meeting friends or quietly reading on the comfortable benches "
