Been coming here for 3 years and witnessed a steady decline in food amount servings (tomato dip scarcely enough for one of four croquettes), increase in prices (a gin & tonic now costs 11 EUR...really??) and the transformation of their once accommodating staff into an arrogant and ill-trained crew. Keep clear of this place that is on the way of... More

We ate here twice during our 10 days in Madrid. Both times we sat right out front to enjoy the plaza. The first time, we went for dinner, and it was great. My wife and I enjoyed both types of croquettes they had, then shared the Butternut Squash Ravioli, which I really enjoyed. We returned a few days later, on... More

We had the fixed menu lunch - Euro11.50 for a first course, bread, second course and desert or coffee. The goat cheese salad was superb and the pork loin and couscous was excellent. My wife had a bean soup and very nicely prepared sea bass. This has been our best meal in Madrid. The waitress was great - efficient, polite... More

Here is a tip: 1. small menu means good quality (chef focus on few dishes to achieve consistency and quality) 2. A restaurant with recently over 100 good reviews is always a good sign. Go for it!!! 3. See how many locals are dinning there, too many tourists or located in a very busy tourist area is generally not a... More
