From the outside, Najera’s modest and unassuming facade might not capture immediate attention. But for those in the know, the name “Najera” resonates with unparalleled quality and freshness.
This quaint, old-fashioned bar, though compact in size, bursts with character. Inside, a limited number of tables create an intimate setting, and on sunny days, the al fresco dining option adds a touch of Spanish charm. The ever-present throng of locals is a testament to its popularity and authenticity.
It’s only when you approach the counter that Najera’s true charm unfolds. A daily display of fresh vegetables, succulent meats, and pristine seafood showcases their commitment to quality. Unlike many establishments, Najera’s unique selling point is its dedication to serving dishes made exclusively from ingredients sourced that very day.
Their tapas offerings have garnered a dedicated following. Whether it’s the creamy potato salad that has won many hearts, the melt-in-your-mouth seafood croquettes, or the rich, flavorful callos – tripe stew – that stands out as one of Madrid’s finest, there’s something for every palate.
For those seeking a more relaxed dining atmosphere without compromising on quality, Najera’s sister restaurant on Claudio Coello 116 street offers three distinct dining spaces, all echoing the same ethos: unparalleled freshness and the finest ingredients sourced daily.
