As noted in my review of our hotel (Hotel Francisco I), we were only in Madrid one night, but this restaurant was a 5 minute walk from our hotel, so we checked it out. We arrived around 9:30 on a Tusday night and it was busy, but not crowded.
Our waitress was fantastic. She spoke English and gave us a menu in English and made suggestions for us. We tried everything she suggested, and were happy with them all. My kids even enjoyed it, which wasn't always the case on this trip. It's relatively cheap and a great place for casual dining.
