“Good meat and Spanish atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Very nice Spanish meat. When you say medium you get rare but the quality is that good you nearly don't notice while eating. Typical Spanish atmosphere with a bit too much light but we liked it.

“Good food, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Had the set lunch after a visit to the Guggenheim. Waitress helped as we speak little Spanish and the menu del dia was in English. Basic menu as you can expect, but good, honest food, nice wine and bread/water thrown in all for €13 a head. The veal and my steak were very nice, the desserts a little hit and miss.

Good mixture of customers, locals, families, couples, tourists etc, place was packed at 3 o'clock in the afternoon so really good atmosphere.

“Nice ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

I have come to the conclusion that maybe Spanish food isn't for me. The shrimps to start were really lovely, though a bit salty. But the steak was served without a sauce which made it hard to swallow.
