I happened to be passing by, after walking around, and was looking for a place to get a drink. The whole area is uber touristy but this place seemed quieter and a little away from the main bustle. Looked at their seafood tapas prices and...More

Had a dinner with friends end of May 2017. Very friendly staff, always willing to advise on the food and drink. Meta and fish alike, all is very tasty and fresh. Must try homemade sweets and wines. Price performance OK.

After visiting the nearby hospital, I had an excellent meal with very good service at this small bistro-like restaurant. The seafood was outstanding including tender flavorful octopus with smoked paprika and sea salt. Definitely worth a visit if you are in this neighborhood.

Amazing seafood, simply prepared! We stopped in for a late lunch and enjoyed a few pitchers of refreshing sangria, shrimp with garlic, pardon peppers, and the grilled hake. Service was easy and friendly. A nice spot to sit outdoors and watch people wander around the...More

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
