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.

We stopped in for dinner after getting a recommendation from a Madrid local. 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

Dear Sir, We are sorry you do not like our food and local fortunately is unusual as you can see in other tripadvisor reviews. Our restaurant is decorated as an " Andalusian patio" with a more than adequate lighting and simulating exterior windows, on Mondays, you ate here is our day of less business, so there were few people, also...

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.

I have to say that I used to live in Malaga so have been accustomed to good quality Spanish food, but I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved this restaurant .
