I have visited this place a few times for a ´menu del dia' and can recommend it very highly. Stand out dishes are broccoli and salt cod soup, meat balls, fish dishes..well everything is exceedingly good. Get there early to get a table...

I love this restaurant. It's good, honest Spanish food in an intimate little area. It feels like what a madrid menú del día should be. I would recommend a dish but the carta changes regularly.

This was hands down the best Menú del Día I've had in Madrid. The place is small, so be prepared to wait for a table. In addition to the value (bread, wine, appetizer, main dish, and desert for 14 euros), the food was delectable. The soup was the standout. I can't remember the kind exactly but it was a delicious...

You know something must be right when you try three times to get a table. On the third day we got in and were not disappointed. A great range of choices on the Menu del Dia (3 courses) and well supported with a huge glass of wine and bread. The place was packed with mostly locals and we were delighted... More

You can tell this isn't a tourist restaurant as it doesn't open for lunch until 2pm. It offers an excellent €14 lunchtime 'menu del dia', for three courses with a glass of wine. The menu is chalked onto the wall and offered six choices of starter and six of main, with a nice variety (for example, chicken cooked in Guinness,... More

Very nice place to have late dinners close to Tirso de Molina. Good food at reasonbale prices. Excellent but not upscale wines. Good home-made desserts and very nice service!

Having walked by this place on numerous occasions we finally dove in and tried the Menu Del Dia yesterday (actually, there is no a la carte menu at lunch; not sure about dinner). A good variety of choices, but nothing struck me as particularly original or inventive -- solid, Spanish family cooking. We both started with the sopa de rape... More

Delicious food at very reasonable prices. It did get busy though so reservations might be an idea. We came here for lunch but had tried to come the night before (a Tuesday) for dinner but it was closed. A varied and interesting menu.

I have been living in and around this restaurant for almost 6 years, and the food continues to be stellar. The most important thing to know that the owner often waits tables during the day and is the only person who opens the majestic wines they serve. This gives the place a certain home style ambience. With that said, the... More

Neighborhood Profile
Walking into this neighborhood is like entering a different country ... except it's hard to tell which one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in traditional African clothing convene outside their businesses for long chats, and people shout to each other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighborhood.
