Cozy, Classic Tapas Bar

This traditional tapas bar is tucked away on a little street near the Palacio Real. You’ll find all the classic dishes, as well as some novel ones: try the goat cheese baked with honey or any of the croquettes. The friendly staff will recommend nightly specials, so don’t hesitate to order something you don’t recognize. If you’ve still got a little room in your stomach, end your meal with a decadent bomba de chocolate. Although it's been open for over 30 years, El Mollete has just recently been discovered by the tourist hordes (due to its stellar online ratings), but you still might find yourself alone with the locals, especially during the off-season. Don’t come for dinner without a reservation; the 26 seats fill up fast.
