Great food, service and sangria. Nice place to go for something different. Wait staff does a great job explaining the tapas concept for those that have never been and experienced it. Loved it.

Have only been here a couple of times but the food was amazing. Some people may let the name fool them into thinking another Mexican restaurant so read their name carefully. Madrid means Spain so some excellent food from a different part of the world!!!!
