We had not reserved in advance, but passed by and decided to have dinner here. Location is excellent and the decoration is nice - the restaurant section is not very big, but the you can also eat at the bar. The service was pretty bad and not at all friendly - we had the feeling that the waiter did not... More

We had steak and fish here and it hit the mark like it usually does. The service is not quite as attentive some of the other restaurants in the area but it is not poor by any means and we come back on most of our trips to Madrid. They tend to undercook red meat (sometimes quite a lot) so... More

I feel compelled to write this review because we had such a good experience here. The New Year's Eve food was excellent and the service was great. After 2 weeks in Spain I expected the service to be slow and inattentive as it had been in so many other restaurants. But the service was very good, waiters attentive, and really... More

We had just arrived in Madrid and visited this restaurant near our hotel which turned out to be a gem of a place. We ate red garlic soup, sardines, a beef dish and risotto and shared a wonderful coffee creme caramel that was divine. Restaurant was pleasant and service very good. It's just a good restaurant serving good food in... More

Nice Basque restaurant in the Salamanca neighbourhood. I particularly enjoyed the kokotxas (fish dish), although meat dishes on nearby tables also seemed a mouth-watering treat.

My wife and I ate here last summer. Tonight, I was alone. I had terrible service and mixed-quality food. The anchoas tapa was fine; the hake main course was awful. I rejected it.

It all started when we got to the restaurant- I and my fiance - we sat down on the terrace and despite that we were the only people sitting outside we were asked if we have a reservation. Oau!!!- quite a question when nobody else is sitting on the terrace. Language barriers not being a problem- my fiancee is from... More

Interesting looking menu, sat outside on nice day. Hostess nice but waiter a bit gruff. A beggar and lottery ticket salesman came by to visit us at table. Food mixed - fish/seafood good, meat so-so. Plenty of better places in town.

Service and seafood are excellent. Their bread is wonderful. Avoid the daily starters which are not on the menu - we paid 23 Euros for a dish of varietal mushrooms - which was our mistake for not asking first. The rest of the menu was average prices, and the food was very tasty.

Most pleasant staff with good service. Food is very good, and nicely presents. If the weather is good, eat outside.
