This restaurant was literally a few doors down from our hotel and we were drawn in by the amount of locals eating there and the simple menu. Up until that evening we had found eating in Madrid a real struggle; my partner is vegetarian and tapas was a nightmare as most tapas menus are so meaty. Forget the rough 'vegetarian' translation; Madrilenos don't consider ham, bacon and fish as vegetarian and you'll find these in just about everything on a tapas menu. So Chic was respite from the problem menus as it's not a tapas menu. The menu is accurately translated and the staff speak very good English. The food is a mix of traditional Spanish and fusion and whilst there isn't a huge choice there is enough variety on offer. The mushroom risotto was perfect. The starters are big so share them out. The house red washed it down perfectly and the ambience, service and value for money dragged us back 2 nights in a row.
