    My wife and I had a fantastic experience at Taberna de Paula this weekend. One of the highlights is being greeted by the owner and chef, Pepote. You notice very quickly that Pepote is passionate about this food and making you feel right at home. (As a new resident of Madrid, my Spanish is no beuno, but have no fear, Pepote speaks perfect English). As you receive your first drink, he takes you through the menu, explaining the options and offering suggestions. Once the meal begins, he continues to check on you and if you have any questions or want to make changes, then there is never a problem. The food was excellent, the selection of wines yummy and the charm of Pepote was heartwarming. With the current situation in Spain (and around the world) and pending curfews looming or just beginning, please be sure to make a reservation for lunch. We promise you will love and enjoy your experience at Taberna de Paula!

    Owner is incredibly friendly and offered a seasonal menu with fresh ingredients. Squid was very tender and flavorful. Rabbit dish was robust and hearty. English friendly but the atmosphere is a cozy, homemade vibe.

    Amazing small restaurant where you can speak directly to the owner to hear his recommendations and all information about menu. Very good food home made style.

    The menu included some items we don't usually see in typical Spanish restaurants as well as familiar standards. All of the food was delicious. Highly recommended.

    Excellent and attentive service. Best so far in Madrid. The Owner/Chef gave us a beautiful aperitif after our meal. We had some of the best food we’ve experienced in the last month being in the city. The mood and ambience were perfect for a nice romantic meal. The dishes were traditional and seasoned beautifully.

    Very good and unique restaurant - glad we found this place and it's very worth visiting. Just be aware, there is essentially no menu, meal selection is limited to whatever dishes they decided to make that night - it was delicious and the service was excellent, but it's a very different experience!
