This is the place to apparently get authentic Spanish style churros? Look, its chocolate sauce is bland and the churros weren't that fresh. I'd recommend going to Chocolat instead.

The girl serving literally looked like she would rather be sitting in a sewer serving homeless people than serving tourists. The churros are pre cooked so not fresh. I guess this allows for quick service. Chocolate dipping sauce is not the best quality. My husband,...More

Even there is a long queu, you do not have to wait so long. The Churro is delicious and the chocolate it is as you like, soft creamy and hot! I love this place. Very good for a desert or after dinner in cold weather.

Be careful, once you try these it’s hard not to crave them every day! Delicious and so enjoyable to sit outside and people watch. If you get the order to go, however, you can’t sit in the courtyard so just grab a table and order...More

We arrived late and there was a long line to get the chocolate and churros. Most of the people were wrong thinking they were making a line to get a table, but they were making the line to get churros to go.

Buenos días, el error se debió a una errata en la elaboración de la carta en chino. Dicho error no aparece en el resto de idiomas. Fue corregido en cuanto nos lo avisaron. Muchas gracias.
