El Lateral: "Delicious pimientos" Madrid Restaurant Tip by islaazul

Madrid Restaurants: 687 reviews and 723 photos

From the outside, El Lateral looks very much like a chic New York eatery. We were hungry, so we gave it a try. The decor is very club-like (purple lights, huge bar, dim, good-looking patrons dressed in black), so we didn't expect much from the food. But wow! The tapas here are delicious!

Favorite Dish: We especially loved the stuffed red peppers (pimientos).
