Great food and good service. We ate here twice during our 3 night stay and this is the second year we have been back to Madrid. There is often a wait for tables but this just goes to show how popular the place is and how tasty the food is. The lunchtime set menu is great value. Both starter and... More

One of those places with a quite simplistic menu but where food is prepared with love. Try the grilled prawns, they just melt in your mouth! Other than that, the decor is sumptuous with a very friendly staff. Only drawback was the waiting time to get served and the absence of wifi.

My favorite place in Madrid. When I used to live in Madrid I would go and eat here at least 2 times a week. The staff is amazing (Tierno, Stuart, I miss you guys!!) and the food never let me down. When you're in Madrid this is a must-go, because of the cheap food and the typical Spanish atmosphere!!

Unless you love eating with loud music blasting and locals screaming at eachother to try to talk, i would skip this place. I read all the great reviews, and went their for the seafood. They were out of everything seafood except the garlic prawns, which were more like garlic baby shrimp. Also tried the meat, it was good, but the... More

Went here based on reviews. We shared the parilla and it was excellent! Great sangria, great service, fun atmosphere and a great price on top of all that. Definitely a place to go in Madrid.

As a tourist , went there after reading good reviews here, and in one phrase , simply great place. The wasiters are lovely and funny. The food is very tasty. The only downside of that place is the noise inside of it. Other than that, superb!

We were welcomed at the place (it became a indicator of success after being not well received in others places). We were four and had 2 parrilladas, one with meat and the second with vegetables. Great value, environment, food, music......

Stopped in Madrid for the night and ended up here to eat. The staff was nice but you definitely have to ask for help, a table, a menu, etc. the seafood plate for two was average. All the items were mushy / soft. The chicken wings were good as were the bowl of lentils.

We were in Madrid for two nights and my boyfriend has a strict no-eating-at-the-same-place-twice rule BUT the food was so good, it didn't take much to convince him otherwise! FIRST NIGHT - Food - For tapas (appetizers), we ordered croquetas de jamon iberico and paella. By the way, the paella was - hands down - the best paella I had... More
