We didn't have a reservation the night we went so my wife and I sat at the bar area in the front. We were well taken care of by Samuel, the bar tender. The Tapas were good and the sitting arrangement allowed us to meet and talk with people from Sweden and South Korea. A fun night and a good... More

Great sangria and tapas. Seating is cramped, but worth the mild discomfort. Prix fixe menu was a great value. Did not need to wait for seat around 10 pm. Tuna and steak tartare were great

It took us a bit to find this little place but it was worth the challenge. We had the partridge pate, fried chicken sticks in a good spicy sauce, and some sort of shrimp nest. All were very good. The beer and wine were also good. The service was excellent..a great place to go for tapas!

We stopped by here courtesy of Tripadvisor's city guides. Delighted with our experience here. Delicious tapas with a modern twist, great vinos and overall a really nice atmosphere. We had a few tapas and really liked the partridge paté and the pork fillet. We met the owner later in another bar that night and shared a drink and great conversation... More

We stopped here our first night in Madrid, and tried 3-4 dishes, each of them very tasty. Sangeria was nice as well. Prices seemed about average for Madrid. If you are in the area it's definitely worth stopping in.

Wife and I stopped here for lunch, ordered the menu which included a generous jug of tasty sangria. The tapas were very good and the waiter very helpful and spoke enough English to help us through the menu. Great value for 15E/person. Definitely recommend!

What a surprise. Not what we expected when we walked in at 10 in the evening. Very friendly staff. The menu was different. The waitress, so very helpful, explained the various dishes. I can recommend the steak tartare. Superb. All the dishes were excellent. The wine, we had a bottle of Ribera de Duero at 10€, was very good. When... More

What an excellent tapas bar! Nice food, presented in small glasses, but what a taste and contempory combined. Only the seats is not inviting enough to make you stay longer, small wooden tabourets :-(( Otherwise: a must go!
