A great find on a great street - Amazing tapas - A must visit place!

We returned to this street after visiting other tapas bars and found it to be superb. Within the city but quiet enough to be off a tourist trail. On the last day we visited and had our final tapas meal. Probably one of the best of our few days in Madrid! We did the Spanish thing and sat at... read more

I went there for a lunch and took of course el 'menu del dia'. The people are nice and the food is great. If you are looking for a place to eat good Spanish food in the center for not more than 12€, you have found the place to go !

Brought 16 college students here twice in two weeks - arranged opening and closing dinners for our trip. Fabulous service, excellent food, wonderful value - we'll be back! Prawns, grilled veggies, meat, wine, beer… all delicious, all plentiful, all included.

Cute place with friendly service. We ate on the main floor, in the bar area, and both the food and atmosphere were very good. Would definitely go back the next time we are in Madrid.

Chicken, pork, sausages..load of meat, free salad dish and free breads for 18 euro!! The menu said, "it is for 2 persons" but i guess that 3 will also be enough.

Try garlic shrimps and 3 souce patatoes! Our next table has ordered the dish of the day which was a huge meat plate! I really mean it! It was huge! If you are a meat lover this should be your choice. The price was 24 eur for 2 person without drinks.

Staff extremely impolite as they were changing shift (which by the way they change prices as well) the waiter ripped the menu from our hand with out a word, after it I just paid my bill and went to...

I came here with 5 friends, mostly because off the many positive reviews on Tripadvisor, and we all loved it. In fact we started our weekend here but also came back on the last day, cause we wanted to end our journey here! Whenever you are looking for a typical place to have lunch/no nonsense food or tapas in Madrid,... More
