Restaurant: Alcalà de Henares!

So back at you with another dandy in my beloved Spain. In continuing with my series on restaurants visited with the family and with photos I take you now to a great memorable find in the Comunidad de Madrid.

While visiting the wonderful Alcalà de Henares we stumble on this nice place right in front of the Cathedral! with a funny name La Gitana Loca or the crazy female gypsy and it caught our attention to go in. It was a very nice encounter with cheap tapas and beers which we have repeated going there.

Alcala de Henares

The prices were one euro for the tapas and we had it going to as much as 70 cents the euro for the glass of beer known as the cana! Enough simple thing to do with a family. It is located at Plaza Santos Ninos 4 directly across from the main entrance to the Cathedral.

Alcala de Henares

A bit of my impression on it.

The truth is that the site does not deceive;  cheap food and drink. The place is normal to go for tapas, the interesting thing is the place where I find it, at the foot of the Cathedral by its main entrance for an excellent location. Bustling site for cheap glass of beer or canas with friends. The atmosphere is for the young but for a family can have great combi tapas and beers and in summer the terrace is elbow to elbow full. The food is not very remarkable as tapas are simple but cheap as well. A good place to cool off, have a drink and admire the architecture of the magisterial Cathedral and its storks from the terrace and continue the path.

An umpretentious place that look more like a bar than a restaurant but the service was very friendly and the food good and cheap, tapas for one euro and beer for 70 centimes attack attack!!!

The official webpage is on the franchise host and not enough info as well as in Spanish : Official La Gitana Loca

There you go a wonderful tourist spot with still great Spanish prices. Enjoy your lunch at La Gitana Loca as we did.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
