Restaurant description

La Bola opened its doors in 1870, when our great grandmother
came from Asturias to Madrid. Now the fourth generation is running
the restaurant. Since this time, we have been serving the same Cocido
Madrileño (a classic Madrilenian dish of chickpeas, stewed with a
variety of meats and vegetables) slow cooked in individual clay
pots, over the oak charcoal.
The “Cocido” is served in the same pots in which it is prepared.
First, the soup is served on a plate with the noodles, followed by the
chickpeas, meats and vegetables, dressed with cabbage and baby
onions, pickled green chillies and a bowl of cumin flavoured tomato
The other exquisite dishes served in this hundred year old
restaurant are no less memorable. Specialties included tripe, lamb,
meat and fish and La Bola’s homemade desserts.
We open daily from 1.00 to 4.00 PM and from 8.30 to 11.00 PM.
We close on Sunday night. For lunch we have two seatings 1.30 PM and
3.30 PM
We accept walk-ins but reservations are recommended, and we
don’t accept credit cards.
Come to La Bola to taste the History…!!!
