Not as good as I remember

Used to be a better restaurant but seems to have fallen sleep. The restaurant is kind of outdated in many ways - the décor could some call it cozy but for my taste is dark and uninviting. Service is so-so at best - it is the type of restaurant that probably due to its past success forgot to be... read more

Went her due to the phenomenal reviews I have read on a series of websites. The saturated felt a little tired atmosphere was lacking, even though we were doing the terribly unspanish thing of eating at 9pm. Due to the tapas grazing I had done during the evening I went straight to main, we both had exactly the same thing... More

Loved the place.and the atmosphere. It was round the corner from our hotel. The specials menu was very special. Lamb sweetbreads and roasted chickpeas. Really nice. I have beef in a mixes mushroom and pepper sauce. Very tasty. The amuse bouche was a fab asparagus veloute with anchovies. Really tasty. You must go.

The place is authentic and cozy, the service is very attentive, detail oriented and helpful and the warmth of the chef is very welcoming; he is very energetic and enthusiastic, his genuine hospitality...

We had a very mediocre meal at this place. The menu is small and well crafted but lacks any real stand out dishes. We had lamb for main which was cooked to perfection but the salad was basic. For the price this place is very average and we ate in some other spectacular restaurants that were far superior and cheaper.

Staying in Paseo del Prado

Neighborhood Profile
Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
