This place is just divine! It's on the main street and just a glimpse of the interior is enough to invite you in. On our first visit, we just sat in a seat in the window with a couple of drinks. Next time we ventured in, we had a couple of large tapas. Absolutely superb! We had cuttlefish and fillet... More

The seating outdoors is a bit on the noisy and simple side, but the inside of the restaurant is very rustic and stylish. The food is ok, reasonably priced and the service is decent. Nothing special.

This restaurant provided a substantial amount of food for a fairly affordable fixed price. The quality was good but there was nothing that made one go "wow"! It was fine for a lunch and the atmosphere was nice. Service was quick but somewhat cold.

Nice surroundings. We had for starters very nice large grilled shrimp and squid, and for Main course a rosted duck we had to send back for more cooking because it was too raw/uncooked and a tasteless broiled beef. No desserts. That + wine and water € 50.

Jantamos uma paella, disseram que demorava cerca de meia hora, se não havia problema, claro que não e efectivamente demorou meia hora. Valeu a pena, muito boa mesmo. Muito fresca, mesmo feita na hora, excelente, recomendo. We dined a paella, said it took about half an hour, if there was no problem, of course not and actually took half an... More

I recently took a school trip to Madrid and we ate here for the three evenings. The food was pretty standard set menu three courses and the students seemed to enjoy it - except for the deserts which they were less keen to tackle. As a vegetarian they offered limited options for me each night but the. Spanish omelette was... More

I don't have the time to review all the restaurants that we tried in Spain. But this is one that stood out. The service was excellent. The value and food were fantastic. But the best part is the ambience and location. This is one of those restaurants that you look in and say "the food can't measure up to the... More

We decided to nix the tapas for our last night and go for something a bit nicer and this restaurant was one we had passed many times. The wine was wonderful and the food was terrific. We sat about halfway back from the street and it was quiet and lovely. Just what we wanted for our last dinner in Madrid.... More

Four of us ate here on our first night in the city. Although the inside of the restaurant was full of character, we sat outside on a lovely May evening and all chose the set menu. It really was excellent value for money, especially for a city centre restaurant, although the quantities were rather more than we needed. The staff... More

Four of us went here for a drink and returned the following evening for tapas, which were the best we have had anywhere, including in the Tapas Capital of the World, San Sebastian. The Spanish tortilla was to die for and the prawns, bellota ham and tuna pastry were all first-class. The ambiance was wonderful, as was the decor and... More
