Good food, lousy service

This is probably not the best tapas place in Leipzig (try, for instance, the place on Karl-Heine Strasse), although the location is right next to the main tourist routes, so one can understand the somewhat steep pricing. The service personnel is insufficient for the number of clients seated on the... read more

We had an attempted theft inside the restaurant, my friends had to run after the thief to recover the stolen wallet and in the meanwhile the waiters demonstrated no concern, refused to call the police or inform other guest about the occurance so that they could check if their belongins were there. In the end, after chasing the thief for... More

We visited Leipzig and were looking for a nice bar to have some drinks. We came along the "cafe madrid" and had some drinks. Reading the menu made us hungry, so we ordered some tapas. They were delicious! The service was very nice and took good care of us. Good prices also. We had a great night!

This is probably not the best tapas place in Leipzig (try, for instance, the place on Karl-Heine Strasse), although the location is right next to the main tourist routes, so one can understand the somewhat steep pricing.

We came for the tapas. We originally wanted to go for 10 mixed plate. However, we saw its just the chaos ones and we wanted to have some nice ones as well so we choose our own. And they were pretty good. Service is a little slow to brig extra bread when it's empty but otherwise it's a good place... More

We visit this large restaurant with a very nice garden in the back and a lot of tables outdoors in the front. There were a lot of people her this hot July evening. We were seated in the very cozy garden in the back. We had traditional tapas dishes accompanied with some ice cold rose wine. All tasted very well.... More

I found the menu very interesting so decided to try it out on this trip to Leipzig. I liked the ambience -- it was pelting rain outside, but the interior, though airy and spacious, still felt cosy. Tables were spaced well apart, so we could enjoy our own conversation without being obliged to hear our neighbours -- and the seating... More

Aftet having been to another restaurant near by and receiving rude service from a drinks waiter we ended up here. Great choice. A welcoming greeting made us feel in the mood immediately. The place was packed and we ended up out the back which was a great spit. They have an outdoir area ad well. But it was cool on... More
