This is a classic restaurant, that has been serving Spanish food for many years. They offer tapas at the bar upstairs or a more serious restaurant downstairs, that is decoated in the Andaluz style. When the weather is good, they serve at tables in the nearby Juan de la Cosa park, so when the heat hits Madrid, this is a... More

This is a great place, the director is a person of great experience, he is devoted to his profession and delivered to the customer, excellent customer service and a very good quality of the dishes. Spanish cuisine, to take with open mind and new flavors. To repeat.

no one spoke English... Restaurant website is in English so I was hoping they speak English... but their menu was in English so I just pointed out what I want. Dish was good and service was fine.

I visited this restaurant last year for a business dinner. It is a nice place, we had a room with a big table. Great service, not very impressed overall with the food - I think you can find better options in Madrid for this style of restaurant for a better price.

The dining area is in the basement and would certainly be a good place to have a long dinner with friends clean, bright, white table clothed big tables. The staff is very warm and welcoming and was happy to oblige with my broken Spanish. They were kind... More

Arrived to find an old hole-in-the wall type that was deserted. Ordered soups to start and it was ok. The iberico ham was passable as well. I think the mains is where they struggle big time. The grilled seabass looked fine. But our meat dishes looked and tasted disastrous. My iberico pork loin was a few pathetic pieces of undercooked... More

This is a great place. Do not miss it. The service is great and in part is due to how nice the team is. All of them. Haven't seen anywhere else in any place in the world. They really like what they do and they like people! And above all, the food is really good!!!

Recommended. I had some tapas as a starter and then a nicely grilled file of beef. To this a very nice Crianza. Superb quality of ingredients and a very warm and welcoming atmosphere.
