This place is pretty damn good, very reasonable pricing and good fresh food. The service is pretty shocking, some nice staff but that's spoiled by a few bad apples.... In particular a young brunette which makes for the worst welcome upon entering the place... We have walked out a few times just due to her rudeness. But good food- ignore... More

The interior decorator made a great job. But as nice as the location is as bad is the very poor service and bad food. Food is delivered to your table not served. One of the worst and unfriendliest places I have ever been...

We had a friends dinner in this place and we suffered the worst treatment I have ever received in a restaurant. 3 out of 4 waiters were rude, never willing to help, pressuring us to finish our food and drinks and acting as they could not hear us calling them. As for the food, it was average. It is a... More

This is a great restaurant with an excellently priced menu. Bottles of rioja crianza are 6€ cheaper than comparable restaurants. The food was good and the atmosphere is great.

Came across this restaurant by accident, and so glad we did. We had a lovely 3 course meal and a glass of wine all for 15 euros. We thought we would be served 3 small portions, but we were wrong. Our first course - a delicious chicken salad - was enough to be classed as a main course. Second course... More

I've eaten at the Baltazahar in New York and London and had high hopes that this restaurant would be good. I checked the other reviews which seemed to be good. Unfortunately, we were greeted by very uninterested staff. The food took a while to be delivered and when it did arrive, it was cold. We had to send the deserts... More

We followed a recommendation and came to this restaurant in the Exiample area. We were not disappointed. There was a wide choice and something to suit everyone all for a reasonable price. Will return again.

Nice looking place, very nice starters, but the paella, which we shared,as minimum two persons was disgusting. Very dark almost gravy like sauce, one prawn each and one mussel each, however one mussel not fully open. The taste was awful, honestly one of the worst meals I've ever had. Pudding was passable, the only positive really is cost, but I... More
