An experience from the dark ages !

An amazing old winery in the backstreets of the town of Chinchon. The premises seemed from the middle ages with a maze of old underground cellars and huge terra-cotta vats. Very atmospheric and dusty. We were part of a group and we had a fixed menu, while the soup was substantial but not what I... read more

Move in the time machine to the eighteenth century.... A perfectly preserved place which preserves the authentic taste of Spain in the eighteenth / nineteenth Century. In winter you can eat with Chimney, very cozy. My favorite in Madrid Community

We went 10 of us without booking and they managed to get us all a table in front of the chimney. The location is like a museum, and the food is delicious also because of the wood oven. Waiters are nice and friendly. Go have an appetizer downstairs in las cuevas, you'll love it.

Visited here as part of a coach party dinner through Riviera travel. Very atmospheric amongst the centuries old wine vats and caves. Food was local and wholesome with good service in Spanish. Dietary requirements dealt with discreetly and can recommend the Gazpacho soup and grilled salmon

Quite a place. A large, rambling restaurant in former farm buildings. You sit surrounded by huge wine vats bearing the signatures of the rich and famous - Orson Wells, Yul Bryner, etc. and by various curios of the wine producing industry of the past. The service is professional and efficient, the food whilst perhaps not of outstanding quality is authentic... More

We had lunch here early November sitting next to the fire place. Great croquetas to start with, followed by a nice perdiz. Service was good (showed us the historic caves afterwards).

The setting near the town of Chinchon is wonderful. What a place! There are cellars everywhere. The proprietors are happy and proud to show you the wine cellars many flights of stairs below the main restaurant. The waiters were extremely nice - friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the food did not match the hospitality. My wife and I were here with... More

I've been there for a lunch with friends (13 persons). The location is very curious and nice. The relation between Price and quality isn't great.

Get away from Madrid and get a glimpse of what Spain used to be like by visiting the town of Chinchon, it's only 45 minutes from the capital, It's plaza is one of the best maintained in Spain and it's restaurants maintain a flavor of the real Spain. Obviously tourism has done much to change what you see today from... More
