Spent a very pleasant couple of hours on Good Friday evening. The restaurant was full as a result of the Easter celebrations. It is set in a lovely small square near Madrid airport. Despite being busy the service was excellent and the waiter very friendly. I had a lovely steak which was really tasty. Would recommend a visit.

It is located in Barajas, Spain very close to the Airport in the main town square. Their paella is excellent but locals come here for the big meat cuts. You can choose your meat size and they will cook it to your liking.

We had dinner here on Saturday night, then returned the next day for Sunday lunch. Seafood paella was very good and steak was melt-in-the-mouth. Seafood soup was excellent, full of prawns, clams, langoustine etc. Set price menus are terrific value.

The restaurant is in Barajas, in a square with several other options. However, having good dishes with spanish food, good draft beer, great hamburger and a variety of teas, it stands out. The staff doesnt speak English, but are willing to help with the menu.

I had a three course lunch there on Thursday, May 30, 2013 for only 10.50 € (circa $13.65 US) including drinks, which is an excellent value not only in Europe, but also in Miami! The... More

We happened upon the restaurant at dinner as it was close to the hotel. I was so happy we did. The food was top quality and the service was really excellent. Very authentic Spanish cuisine.

This place is a little on the expensive side for drinks. however if you want a nice meal then this is recommended. I would also recommend you try their special hamburger. It is €6 but you get everything on it cheese, egg, salad, bacon, hamburger. chips are round and flat and have to be ordered seperately at €4 but one... More
