Tapas were really great. They were so good that they eclipsed the main dishes. If i came back, I would just order many tapas and skip the main dishes. Friendly staff. Great overall experience. Trust me on the tapas...

Good menu for around 9euros including a bocadillo, cooked - and delicious - pasta or rice, a drink and a desert or coffee. Tasty food but awful coffee, try the yoghourts instead! Regarding to the atmosphere, the designers' furnitures make it a really pleasant place. Although that the staff can be a bit rough, still this is one of the... More

I visited Diurno's while staying locally at the Oscar Room Mate Hotel following a recommendation from a friend who had eaten there previously. It is a lovely restaurant and bar - quite funky with a large DVD collection when you go in and a very popular place to eat and hangout. I had a friendly welcome from a young waiter... More

This is an average restaurant for the price, location and ambiance. Simple quacamole and chips can run you about 7€. Hamburgers are around 12€. A half pint of tap beer was almost 4€. And, the menu was limited. The inside isn't bad except that there is a DVD rental business happening inside the restauant! The wait staff was friendly, if... More

We just stop here for a coffee (without eating - apart a famous carrot cake !!). We had a warm welcome, with someone speaking in French. We were sit close to the DVDs, in a large and confurtable sofa, a "lounge mucis" and we spend a really nice time here. We just regret not to come back later to test... More

We found this restaurant on our last night, although a bit dark inside it has loads of atmosphere, plus the music was fantastic, they were playing all 80's and 90's right up our street. The service was excellent, although I am not sure if they spoke English, luckily my husband speaks some Spanish. We opted for the special Anniversary menu... More

We loved this spot - so much so we had dinner here twice. The restaurant's in a great location in Chueca - a short hop from some of the best bars, but in a quietish corner. The tables at the windows are best for ambience/people watching. The venue is very cool/trendy, as are the staff, who are friendly and helpful.... More

Dropped in by chance. They were very polite and found places for us. The atmosphere was great - music and light were very relaxing. Later we were surprised by the delicious food and well-done cocktails. Price was very acceptable. Will visit again.

We ended up here when we couldn't get a table at the nicer restaurant across the street. The atmosphere is cool -- it'd be a fine place for a drink -- but I can't recommend the food. The menu has a strange mix of options, from falafel and quesadillas to hamburgers and a few more typical Spanish options. Filet minon... More

The place looks real nice on a street where there are plenty of nice looking restaurants. It was full but we still managed to get a table for 2 at 21:15. The greeter was very friendly!

Hi Allan, thanks for passing by and leaving your opinion, all comments are welcome! We're happy that you liked the greeting and octopus, and less happy about the Filet Steak being medium-rear instead of medium (sometimes, from city to city the meat point changes, that's why you may get a point less and order one more point instead of bringing...
