La Azotea

Updated April 2013

I love this place. It’s cosy and intimate, yet lively and friendly. The food is excellent, the service is top-notch… just go! But be sure to get there early. Owned and run by the excellent Juan (Sevilla) and Jeanine (California), La Azotea offers two menus – one that changes seasonally, and the other daily, depending on what looks good and fresh at the market. As a result you may not find some of the dishes shown here, but there will always be something equally as delicious. Tapas are available at the bar, full and half raciones at the tables, and there is an excellent selection of wines by the glass.

La Azotea Vinos & Más gourmet food & wine shop is just around the corner at Conde de Barajas 12.

Also visit sister bars La Azotea Zaragoza and La Azotea Santa Cruz, which offers the same great food and wonderful service.

Bread Charge: 0€ at the bar, 1€ per person at tables
