Stopped here upon arriving to Alcala de Henares and was disappointed. For a place with a wine cellar one would think they would offer a decent tapa, however nothing. Not worth the visit. No tapa and the service was mediocre. The bar was nice but that was it.

You can sit in the lower part for more of a restaurant feel, with Raciones (larger portions) or in the bar area for Tapas. In the restaurant area, the food was good and arrived quickly. A few of the dishes on the menu were difficult to translate from the colloquial Spanish. Torreznos = Deep fried Pork belly chunks. Tapas in... More

A group of us went on a Friday night, luckily we were early as it got very busy as the evening progressed. Being of a certain age we decided to head for the restaurant passing through a very large bar area where stools or standing were the norm. We opted for a selection of raciones to share between the 7... More

They have menus in the restaurant with no quality at all and you pay more than double Forget it! If you are looking only somethings to eat easy, go to other places cheaper and if you're looking for quality...this is not the place!!!

Had lunch at de Rusty, good value simple fare, nice cold beer, the setting is rustic and service is fast and efficient (until you ask for the bill) Nice place for a quick lunch or a long session of tapas in the evening.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, even going to the kitchen to fetch a sample of something when they couldn't translate the menu. Food was delicious, both tapas and main dishes. No waiting, prompt service and a good place for small or larger groups.

I am currently here while I write. Highly recommend this place for the Tapas which are delicious. They have a nice variety of german and french beers and the people working here are really nice and helpful. Too bad they don't have a Terraza to eat out in the open.

If you are a craving a burger, this is the place. It has it's Spanish magical taste and touch. I had the goat-cheesse burger acompanied with a "caña" (beer)...simply the best. Good ambience, music and sports on the tvs. Felt away at home. Enjoy!

Very happy with the generous delicious tapas here and quick efficient service! Love the empanada and just about everything on the tapa menu. Really cool inside with the barrels used as tables.
