    Unfortunalety the food was not good, too much oil in the french fries. The restaurant is traditional Spanish. We like the decoration.

    Only thing we would like to make aware to other Australian travellers, not to book before 9:00 - 9:30 for that's when the feel of the restaurant came alive. We also went on the Friday flamenco night, fabulous, cost 12 euro to see the show plus meal

About the restaurant

The Tavern Antonio Sanchez, founded in 1830 by “picador” Colita, is one of the oldest and best preserved bullfighter’s taverns in Madrid. Antonio Sanchez Ruiz became the owner in 1884 and named the Tavern after his son the bullfighter Antonio Sanchez, who retired in 1922 after being seriously injured more than twenty times while bullfighting. During these years he befriended Spanish painter Ignacio Zuloaga, who established at the Tavern several debate meetings and art exhibitions.

The Tavern Antonio Sanchez keeps its original decor from 1884, including its antique furniture, primitive carved wooden bar, mirrors, and lamps. In display you will find several historical bull heads, such as “Fogonero”, that gave the alternative to Antonio Sanchez.

Come and visit the Tavern, you will travel back in time to the most emblematic Madrid enlightenment.

Our tavern has been recognized as CENTENARY ESTABLISHMENT by the Madrid chamber of commerce and by the business federation of restaurants and bars

The Tavern Antonio Sanchez is dedicated to keep alive the secrets of traditional Spanish cuisine, preserving original receipts and cooking processes. Our specialties are Bull tile, Traditional Madrid stew, Gipsy pot, Callos a la Madrileña, Snails, Torrijas ... And many more traditional dishes.

The tavern Antonio Sanchez is located in the heart of the old “castizo” Madrid. Next to the Tirso de Molina square and 5 min walking distance to Puerta del Sol or Plaza Mayor.
