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.

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

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
