I was expecting some pompous "prettier than tastier" meals, but it was an excellent set of good dishes. Please, don't miss the "arroz del señorito".

After looking at trip advisor I decide to visit with a colleague - although no staff spoke English we managed to order an array of dishes, of which none disappointed. Overall the food,wine and the cost were all amazing. Will be busting again.

After visiting this restaurant on a couple of occasions, it still manages to bring surprises to the table each time. Everything on the menu is great. Instead of ordering a few large dishes, i recommend going for many 1/2 dishes to be shared. Before visiting this place I had no idea what could be done with simple ingredients as eggs... More

By far the best restaurant in Tres Cantos. Excellent service that sometimes may be slow if table bookings all arrive at once though today has actually been incredibly fast. Oak smoked steak was superb as usual, nice apple tart with ice cream. I love coming here on special nights out and will continue. Tuna tartar is also my daughter's favourite!

The incredible tuna, the amazing eggs, the brilliant steak - And then some. A rather upscale restaurant with rather downscale prices. Impeccable service, perfect food at a very reasonable price. I would go here again and again.

We had a good time dining. Most of us tried the sirloin smoked with oak wood and it was excellent. Together with the salad, two starters, deserts, a bottle of wine and digestive liqueurs it came to € 27 each. The service was very helpful and the presentation of the meals very good. All in all a round dinner.

The starter was good, but the mail course (steak) was less. Quality of the meat was ok but served much too rare for a medium ordered steak.

I don't know why people say this is an expensive restaurant. I went there by myself, as I was on a business trip, had an excellent starter of morcilla and the rabo de toro as a main course. Along with a glass of Sherry, Rioja and a brandy to finish off this came to under €25. The quality of the... More
