The tavern Mariñeira Xentes has witnessed a big part of the social and business life of Madrid. It is located in the heart of the capital, in the neighbourhood of La Latina, less than 100 meters away of the historical Market of La cebada. This tavern and Galician restaurant, regented by 2 sisters, Gemma y Ana, was inaugurated in the year 2005. Artists, journalists and politicians are blended in daily with the people of this neighbourhood and with those that visit us from all over the world. They all have something in common; they enjoy the good table.
In Xentes you can breathe a swell of northern seas, that it comes alive in a large bar, perfect for Sunday “tapas”. But if you are looking for something more quiet you just have to ask for it, we will guide you immediately to our nautical lookout where you could rest and enjoy our delicacies and its taste in total peace. The captains of this boat, Gemma and Ana, have been leading this project from the beginning, but they are not alone. To achieve the perfect pairing between the Xente’s tastes with the best wines, they have always count with the invaluable help from Daniel Roset, accredited sommelier and finalist for the prize “the golden nose” on countless occasions. Daniel has known how to pour out his knowledge in a magnificent wine list and position the Xentes as one of the favourite establishments for those who like to taste the best wines at good price.
This Project wouldn’t have been possible without the people that have worked by our side since the beginning and that have grown professionally and personally with us: Vicente, Jeny, Gabriela and Juana help us giving flavour to your lives.
If you come once, you will come back…
