I chose this restaurant based on trip advisor review. As many review expressed this restaurant was great, we loved this place. Although we didn't have reservation, we were lucky to have a bar table. As soon as we sat, waitress was kind enough to explain menu in English. With her thorough explanation, we were able to choose easily. Food came,... More

We came here on a Saturday night without reservation, yet we were lucky and they seated us at the counter. This place has a very original selection of dishes and tapas which we enjoyed. For starters we had tuna tartare, guacamole with fried banana, and for main dish fajita with meat and mango sauce, as well as rabbit meat. All... More

When we came at the restaurant it wasn't open yet. The owner was so nice to open it earlier for us. The welcome was really nice. We didn't speak Spanish but they were so kind to translate everything for us. Were were with 3 adults and we took 4 tapas. It was more than enough. The tapas were amazing and... More

I chose this from the Tripadvisor app on Madrid. Despite it being just one tiny door down a side-alley, it was easy to find with the map. I arrived at 8.30, as it was opening. Just as well, as 15 minutes later, they were turning people away. There are only about 10 tables. The owner explained all the menu and... More

I was recommended by one of my friend who visited earlier and enjoyed the food. So it was an easy picking for my dinner. I went twice because food was really good. Small restaurant, you will never notice the little jam behind the main street. Totally enjoyed the food. I heard the clams are good, but not a fan of... More

We'd heard about this place from different review sites including Yelp. It's a very small place with maybe twenty seats maximum. We got lucky and walked in off the street. We had to wait for a table but thankfully we were just two people and hit it just right. Definitely call ahead and make a reservation if you can. Your... More

We tried this small restaurant based on the Trip Advisor review and saw it was a great option for our party of 6 because we had dietary restrictions including a vegetarian as well as gluten-free. As others have stated, Hugo immediately came to the rescue by describing each dish and identified which dishes were appropriate for our party. We tried... More

The food was good, but not amazing (IMO). Had the pork skewers, rabbits leg, tuna taco, asparagus, goat cheese, gazpacho and potatoes; all of which were good and only the tuna taco (and strawberry infused vanilla ice cream with coke syrup) being great. Perhaps I shouldve tried other dishes but was tough when you're eating/sharing entrees with a vegetarian. Also... More

What a terrific experience! As others said, Hugo is a delight and the food exceeds expectations at a really reasonable price. It was so enjoyable we returned for a second dinner on our last night in Madrid. Best gazpacho ever (I hate cucumbers so it was wonderful to find one without them). Our companions swooned over the mojito sorbet. We... More
