“Cold beer and nice tapas ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Went there on the last night of a trip in Madrid ... the beers were cold and plentiful and they served us some great tapas ... the last being a great dish stacked with large mussels ...

The place was packed with locals and it was great to finally be in a place with only locals on our last night ...

Not sure what the complaints about the food are about below but there was NO bad food in our experience ...

“Carne buonissima, occhio alle porzioni enormi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011 via mobile

Questo posto necessita innanzitutto di una raccomandazione: dimenticate le parole antipasto, primo e secondo e fidatevi del mio consiglio. Prendete due tre portate in quattro, non di più. Altrimenti rischiate di non finire il cibo.
In quattro abbiamo preso: un insalata con il baccalà e il pulpito gallego di antipasto. Il polpo era qualcosa di divino. Uno di noi ha preso un menu del dia, con trippa e pollo, mentre gli altri hanno preso una porzione di riso funghi e tartufo, buonissima, e soprattutto due porzioni di carne arrosto.
Questo merita una descrizione. La carne viene portata in quantità industriale cruda e ogni tavolo viene fornito di una sorta di fornellino. Una figata pazzesca. Poi abbiamo preso patate fritte, un vassoio, dolce, una bottiglia di vino, gassosa, birra e acqua. Un caffé. 138 euro in totale.
Se avessimo saputo quanto erano enormi le dosi, avremmo preso meno roba, comunque da provare.

“good for decent tapeo or...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2009

good for decent tapeo or fancier dining inside or in the climatized tent-terrace. Great pulpo and lubina al sal, meats tasty too, quality products all round and just 100 metres from my doorstep :-)
