In 1917, Ciriaco Muñoz gave his name to an old refreshment bar at number 84 on Calle Mayor and turned it into a restaurant and tavern. On its walls, you can see bullfighting mementos, along with paintings, posters and photos commemorating its most famous clients, such as Ortega y Gasset, Caro Baroja, King Alfonso XIII and the current Royal Family.
The tavern continues its literary tradition of yesteryear, as it is the venue for the monthly meeting of the “Friends of the writer Julio Camba” club. The tavern serves a dish with over 100 years of tradition behind it, “pepitoria de gallina” (hen cooked in a sauce with egg and almonds). Full “cocido” (Madrid-style meat and chickpea stew) is only prepared on Tuesdays and is presented in two servings. Its wine cellars are also magnificent, with a collection of wines dating back to 1917 and cognacs dating from 1892.
