Everything in this restaurant is at least delicious. Local cozy well as his manager and the staff, the food and wine excellent. I highly recommend their special dish "mariscada" but also the daily menu is always appetizing. Definitely worth trying if you are in Madrid

While wandering around Madrid we came across this restaurant, it was quite full all the time, I would recommend reserving. We tried quite a few of the variety of fresh seafood they had on display. It was all excellent, I highly recommend the Cigalas and the zamburiñas. Their house wine Albariño is very good. If you like seafood, you will... More

Every Time we eat in this place we feel embellished by the fantastic food quality. Don't forget to try "Berberechos", "Pulpo", Pimientos de Padron as well. It's so good. Fish is delicious. Highly recommended.

We were a little nervous about this place given the mixed reviews but we had an excellent meal at this little place although there were few others in the restaurant. I would recommend seeing what is in the cold cabinet as that might well influence what you want to order. I noticed some great looking small scallops so we included... More

Very good seafood at a decent price, considering the quality of the food. The grilled baby octopus was the best that I've ever had. We went there twice and the first time the waitress was very friendly and helpful. The second time, a different waitress acted like we were keeping her from something she would much rather have been doing... More
