Great cochinillo, location, and value.

My wife and I had dinner there using a Groupon. The atmosphere was very folksy and the service was great. The location could not be better since it's a couple of blocks from Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. The best part was the cochinillo which was as good as we've ever had. All for a 39.95 Euro... read more

We were recommended this restaurant by some people we met in Manchester who were from Gibraltar. We had never been to mainland Spain before and had no idea where to go. We booked a table via Tripadvisor for the evening of 15/02/15 and called in on the restaurant on the day of our booking to see if we could make... More

Not our first visit and definitely not our last to this restaurant that is tucked away below a corner of the “Plaza Isabel 11” near the “Opera” Metro. This unassuming restaurant never fails to deliver. We are over in a Madrid for Valentines and it is at least three years since our last visit. We were not disappointed. The meat... More

great location, great decoration, great tastes, reasonable prices. What else do you need? If you are after real Spanish food then consider this place. It is not about Tapas, it is about real food 😄 Wine selection is great, normally, meat is excellent and people are very friendly. Especially after a light lunch of Tapas, i have really enjoyed real... More

We had cochinillo, roasted piglet here and some other dishes, amongst which the beste ham we had in madrid. The pig was also very nice. We had dinner inside, arrived a bit early since our kids were hungry. The owner was very friendly. The interior is a cellar I think, with bare walls. Quite nice. The furniture does not quite...

We went for dinner, a party of four, without reservations. We wanted a table outside, and they made arrangements for us. For starters they brought us some pork Chicharrones that were absolutely fantastic, we followed this with Mosrcilla de Burgos, another great, and finally COCHINILLO, not enough words to describe how good it was. However, we had one in our... More

During a visit to Madrid were in this restaurant 2 times. The second time went specially to eat meat which it is necessary to fry itself. When were the first time we saw this process at the next table. This dish called Chuleton de buey, the portion for 2 people. The waiter brings a special burner with ceramic plate, coarsely... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the staff at Hotel Moderno and did not disappoint. It was so good, we went twice. We were two couples and the first night was steaks and the special roast lamb for two. The lamb was so tender and juicy and the steaks cooked just right. Excellent appetizers of Jamón Iberico and sheeps... More

We visited very early in the evening as we were attending a nearby concert. The staff seemed to be finishing off serving large group lunches and our presence wasn't welcomed. To start we had a nondescript salad and small plate of chorizo which was very fatty and not enjoyable at all. The main course was their speciality of suckling pig... More
