Horrible! We were seated in a small empty room with decadent decor....The steak was greasy and tasteless. Hardly any one at the restaurant from opening at 8p till 930p. Service was the highlight of the evening, but the quality of food and ambiance leaves a...More

We ate here on recommendation. The steak was fantastic and reasonably priced. The atmosphere however was somewhat lacking for a Saturday night. The service was OK. Attentive but not overly friendly.

The grilled steak here is beyond delicious! Obviously many famous Spaniards over the years agree for their photographs and autographs fill the walls. Tourists dine here, but so do the locals. The food is excellent, the service superb, the atmosphere unique!

Excellent typical restaurant of Madrid, traditional since 1933! Service friendly and customer oriented (the waiter suggested me not to take the omelette, because I chose too other many things to eat..). I ate good croquetas, plus a huge and tasty chicken grilled (plancha). With sangria...More

We went to the restaurant for lunch and it was amazing. The restaurant was clean, the staff was very professional and kind, and the food was great. Next time we go to Madrid we'd definitely return for another lunch.

This is an easy one, where can you find the best tortillas de patatas en Madrid? Casa Paco has a wide range of different tortillas, there are too many options to mention them here, you just have to check it out for yourself. Be prepared...More

Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense
University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced,
collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is
filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes
and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing
cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping
spot where the major Spanish clothing and department
store chains are less busy than their downtown
