No reservation but restaurant accommodated us nevertheless on a very busy saturday afternoon. Warm service and excellent food. Server recommended we share several courses and it was a good way to taste many items without eating too much. Highly recommend!

We arrived at 1:30 when they opened and had no reservation. They accommodated us and were so wonderful. Most spoke English, which helped us, and their recommendations were perfect. I had the Sea Bass & my wife had the chicken curry. The curry sauce was one of the best we have ever had. We split a tortilla for the starter... More

It is not common in a Spanish fine restaurant to enjoy the possibility of been offered tortilla española as one of the main dishes of the menu. That is not the case of this restaurant that has a complete menu of different types Spanish tortillas to choose. The remaining content of the menu is also very good.

Local nice restaurant with the "tortilla tradicional" as a very good specialty. Booking is suggested and, odd for some foreigners, they open at 21:00 !

... This is a good place to experiment with some more unusual interpretations. If you don't like tortilla you're in the wrong place. Modern and not particularly warm decor. Normally busy.

Quaint restaurant with amazing food. We tried two different tortillas - one with truffle, the other with spinach - loves the softer, undercooked egg and enhances flavor. The creamy gazpacho soup was to die for. And the baked sea bas was perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Wanted to go there for a long time. The traditional Spanish omelette was outstanding. We tried two more, with truffle and with octopus and they were very good, but although original, don't beat the traditional one. Friendly staff

We went here for lunch yesterday. You need to make a reservation as its popular and busy. It cost us €10 each way to taxi ti it from Sol but it was 100% worth it. It's not tapas which is a good for variety and the menu includes fish, meats and or course their speciality tortillas which are a version... More

Service, food quality, environment and everything in between were all top notch. I've been here three times, and every time has been better than the last. The management treats every customer like an old friend (not common in Madrid), and the environment is always perfect for couples or a group of friends. Don't miss your chance to taste the "tortilla"... More

Staying in Chamberi

Neighborhood Profile
Chamberi
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighborhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
