La Torre del Oro review 3 Users say 3/5 Rate it

It's smack on the Plaza Mayor, so don't expect any bargains, especially if you sit out in the square, but this Andalucían bar is the real deal, with bullfighting memorabilia and incomprehensible waiters. If you can understand and make yourself understood, ask for prawns or whitebait (pescaítos), and accompany them with a cold, dry fino.

Total rip off. Don't waste your time or money. The two servers were rude and they don't give a menu to shoe the ridiculous prices. A real tourist trap! Food was pretty nasty as well.

The pictures on the walls inside are often missed .. Bullfights , toreros and toreros lying seriously injured on hospital beds . I lived in Madrid for 7 years and this was my favourite terraza in the Plaza Mayor . Just off the Plaza Mayor is a gem of a bar called Bar La Ideal where you can get the best and cheapest Bocadillo de Calamares in the the area !

A most enlightening experience but not for for the squemish I advise trying it for the
Experiment and information but as I say not if you have an aversion to matadors being the losers shows the dangers of bull fighting to the matdors but very informative about the finer points of the art of bull fighting I still don't like the idea
A bit too Coleraine for me prefer less violent sport not big on blood and guts
