About Cuenllas Ultramarinos & Tapas

Cuenllas Ultramarinos was established back in 1939, and is located just behind the Debod's Egyptian temple and within easy walking distance of the newly renovated Plaza de España.

“Ultramarinos” originally referred to a small neighbourhood shop selling an array of goods but is now a wine shop and restaurant with an excellent wine list built by owner Fernando Cuenllas. “If it is a good wine…. it is in,'' pretty much sums up Fernando’s philosophy on which wines to include.

The list is concise and well-executed and focuses on wines from Champagne, Bordeaux, the Rhone Valley and even some producers from Switzerland. Unsurprisingly, the Spanish offer is also strong, with the focus on well-aged Riojas and Castilla y León wines, as well as some great options for Italian wine lovers.
