Been here twice now whilst on business and on both occasions food has been really good quality with great service. Second time we did not book and the staff were really accommodating. For a city centre the cost is not extortionate and I would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area. I will definitely make a return... More

Excellent tapas and very reasonably priced. Friendly service and centrally located - we eat late evening and it was still very popular - so I can imagine it's really busy early evening meal time

We came here back in Feb for a staff management dinner and I was so disappointed with their paella that I didn't get past two bites - my colleagues were the same So, imagine my delight when I found out we were entertaining a customer here Well......either the chef has changed or they cope better with a la carte service...

They actually have a pretty good sangria for warm summer evenings. Was "hunting" for one through city center and finally (and luckily) we ended up in Café Madrid.

We visited this large restaurant for a second time. We were here last year as well and absolutely worth visiting. It has a very nice garden in the back and a lot of tables outdoors in the front. We were seated in the very cozy garden in the back. We had traditional tapas dishes accompanied with some nice Spanish red... More

We tried this place on impulse, and it was great. It's a big place, where you can eat inside, or out on the pavement, of out in a garden. They serve a huge variety of small dishes (tapas), with some amazing flavours, a wide range of beers and wines and spirits. We tried the local "Longhorn" gin and it was... More

Tapas...jamon Serrano...mariscos...no faltan de aqui... It is nice to be surprised 2 times in a row by the same variety of foods at this very popular (it is highly recommended to get a reservation as it's always full) restaurant in the center of the city. A big like and let's see the next visit ;-)

A very good restaurant . In summer time you can seat outside. The tapas which we had were very good. Ambience of the restaurant is very nice . We have felt good. The staff is very friendly.

Wanted to try the mixed tapas and iberian food and chose this place. It was worth it! The Chef´s suggestion for great flavour tapas is awesome and you can choose amongst a large range of beers. Could be cheaper but you can say that quality has to be paid.

One member of staff was exceptionally rude when the only table available was a 5 seater outside. He told me other others came they would move me to accommodate a bigger party! The waitress who served me was lovely, the food was good, i had their suggestion of 5 tapas and 50cls of house white. 32 Euros, very tasty.
