Located in one of the nicest little plazas of the center of Madrid and with a large terrace to sit outside, the Taquería de Birra offers nice mexican food. Though we recomend this restaurant, prices of some drinks (namely margarita cocktails) can get a little expensive. We recommend the Tamal con Mole and the Tacos al Pastor.

Booking a table is recommended.
