Had a great meal here. The owner was very friendly, portions are generous and tasty. Lots of flavour. And a great find for the gluten-free - the tortillas are made with corn so there were only a few items that were off limits (the mole...More

It is a small cosy place where you can eat authentic mexican food. Their tacos are super good with homemade tortilla. My favourite one is the tinga de pollo (chicken) and conchinital pibil (marinated pork). A must try while in Madrid

Dropped in as this was close to the apartment that we rented. Very friendly staff. Good cold beer and lovely margaritas. Enjoyed the Mexican dishes. Not the best Mexican I’ve had, but pretty good and tasty. Reasonable price too. Would recommend and would come back.

Friendly owner but the food seemed to lack a bit of inspiration when it comes to presentation. Also the flavours and side dishes were a little bland.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
