Taberna La Carmencita, the second oldest tavern in Madrid, welcomes you once again. We’ve opened our doors to bring back the spirit of the traditional neighborhood eatery it was back in 1854. We want you to feel at home and make sure you always have something tasty to eat. We want you to enjoy breakfast with a cup of Café Angélica, fair-trade coffee purchased from countries in the South of Africa and South America, which we roast ourselves. Help us bring back delights from Madrid’s heritage such as vermouth, stuffed and deep fried mussels, negronis, contemporary lunches, high mountain-style casseroles, organic beef hamburger steaks served with an onion-and-herb sauce, and free-range eggs with perfectly round yolks that taste just like they did in the old days.
La Carmencita welcomes locals and outsiders alike with more than 75 traditional Spanish recipes such as slow-cooked organic beef shank chunks from the Cantabrian cooperative Siete Valles de Montaña. Join us for a late-night bite of monkfish fingers with spicy tomato sauce and aioli after your soirée or visit us mid-afternoon for croissants and coffee with organic milk from Madrid’s Guadarrama Mountains.
