To be positive if you want the most tenderly cooked lamb or pork you have ever eaten then come here. On the other hand if you want buzz, local company and atmosphere then I'm sorry to say that this is not the place for you. A great shame because the food was excellent.

The suckling pig is a real must if you visit this restaurant. This is my second visit here (previously 10 years ago!) and the food and service, as well as the atmosphere remains just as good as it was 10 years ago.

Lamb and pork cooked to perfection, served with green salad dressed with the best olive oil I have tasted anywhere. House wine is more than good, you probably won't want a starter or dessert. The bread was beautifully fresh and very tasty. The restaurant was packed with locals, would certainly visit again.

Great atmosphere and food. This place is paradise for meat eaters. Everything is cooked in a wood heated oven and the meat is treated with sea salt, giving it an extra strong flavor. Service is excellent and you can get a taste of real Spanish food and not the rubbish “tapas” they sell in the majority of the substandard bars and restaurants.

On Calle Preciados near the Gran Via, this is a great restaurant recommended to us by locals, but you must like lamb as that's the only thing on the menu! We went twice during our stay. The first time we ordered lamb chops that were delivered to the table on their own "asador" - a little charcoal grill. The second time, we went with friends who live in Madrid and ordered lamb roast - basically a suckling lamb leg roasted to perfection and just falling off the bone. Don't miss the grilled asparagus as an accompaniment. Both times, we were the only "tourists" in the place, and they don't speak much English, so be sure to polish up your high-school Spanish!
