First you have to queue up for 20 mins, then scour order gets answered by a very unfriendly answer and finally you get your cold churros. By far the worst churros I have had - cannot recommend at all. Every stand on the beach/street will...More

Nice chocolate with churros, deep fried dough so very very heavy and sweet. Girlfriend enjoyed a lot, an experience for me I guess since I am not fond of sweets

I visited this place since all of my friends were raving about it. The churros were decent but weren't worth their popularity. The smaller chains in other places serve yummier churros.

Very allergy friendly! The churros are wheat based, but free of all other allergens for us. They only make the churros in the oil, so we didn’t have to worry about cross contamination.

The churros were good here, but only thing negative to say is that the old lady with glasses who took our order was rude. I think it was obvious it was our first time there, but she didn’t take the time to explain the menu,...More

High quality chocolate, with all sorts of perlins and other sweet delights. Extremely recommend the churos. You can also take away in a box.

Dark chocolate and choros... what can you say. Go when you aren’t full. These are extremely rich. My choros could stand vertically in the chocolate. Next door is their ice cream shop. Highly recommend.

Churros and chocolate ( fried sticks of dough and very thick sweet melted chocolate) is the attraction. Americans will be reminded of Cafe du Monde in New Orleans.

I was really excited for this location given the good reviews. I got 6 churros and a hot chocolate for 4 euros. The churros were nothing special, just fried dough, but I really expected the chocolate to amaze. It was basically heated chocolate pudding. Thick...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
