Great food and great service! We had sangria, jamon, brochettas de salmon, ropa vieja, chicken curry and cheesecake. The Ropa Vieja and cheesecake were absolutely amazing, everything else was really good as well. Staff was lovely and the atmosphere was really nice.

Fantastic food and fantastic service, 5/5 for sure. Next time im in Madrid I will be stopping here again!More

Came here for tapas and drinks. All the tapas were on point and fire. Sangria was good but wasn’t the best. The house red wine el sur was good. Definitely would come here again. This place lived up to the hype. All the servers were...attentive and gave great service.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
