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.

My wife and I went here for dinner one Friday evening. We didnt need a reservation though it was quite busy. The staff were attentive and the service was fast. The tapas were all really good, except for the prawns and mussels which were a bit average. I particularly liked the sardines and calamari. They were all quite expensive though.... More

Some lovely salads - perfect for an outdoor lunch but was disappointed by the slow service. The waitress didn't even bring a menu for a long while after seating us.

I heard that it's supposed to be one of the best restaurants in town. So I went there with a friend and was really excited. The first impression was great. The restaurant has a nice interior design and very friendly waiters. Which all in all makes you feel welcome. The cocktails were fantastic although we chose to have virgin cocktails.... More
