Given the good reviews, we stopped here for lunch. They are generous with the portions, fast in the service and our waiter, Jhoan, was very friendly. We highly recommend it not only for the quality of food, but also because of the care they put...during this covid pandemic.More

Pulpo and sangria were great! The restaurant is a bit hidden, we ended up there by chance but I would definitely recommend it. Great service and atmosphere. The price is fair. One of my best places in Madrid!

Start with the homemade sangria! 🤩 And enjoy the calamares (homemade) and the paella with seafood. An absolute must for Madrid. And even if you think you had enough, don’t miss the cheesecake! And the friendly staff makes your experience complete! We’ll be back!

We walked in without reservations. It's intimate and wonderful. We went early evening and had no problem getting a table. It filled quickly, though, because the food was outstanding and lots of people didn't seem to mind... More

We just walked in and were lucky to get a table quickly. You might have to wait at the bar but you can get a drink. If there are two or four you should get seated quite quickly. Its not a very big place. But lovely food
