It is a nice place, with an exquisite decoration. The carrot cake was good, but a little bit dry at the top. The service is good, what is not usual for restaurants in Madrid. I would gladly give it a second try.

After several hours of walking around in the heat, we wanted to have lunch without feeling that as tourists we would be offered mediocre food at inflated prices. We made the right choice.

The amount of gold and black caught our eye and then a very decently priced, €12.90 menu clinched the deal. There were 6-7 first courses to choose from and an equal number of seconds. Apart from a couple of salads, and gazpacho, which were both good, there was a tasty fruit plate with Spanish ham and a few other more exotic dishes. But first we were served homemade croquettes, complements of the house, which were a bit salty. The seconds included veal steak, a few fish dishes and lamb. Drinks were not included but dessert was. We thought it was good value for money. The service was friendly and efficient.

The upstairs walls, are lined with reproductions of Velazquez' work painted on tiles.

The restaurante La Caterdal is the ideal spot to relax at the end of a long shopping day over a wonderful selection of Tapas and vino. This restaurant is only a stone throw away from Puerta del Sol and is mainly frequented by Madrilènes. The service is quick and friendly and the ambiance is inside the stone structure of the room and the glass-panels of the doors depicting the names of local monuments and Plazas, is very pleasant indeed. Reservation is not required.

Tapas at the bar are excellent, plenty of choice and good portions. Barman is very friendly and attentive. Been to this bar many times and now consider it our local in Madrid because of the service and atmosphere. Restaurant food is also good and good value!
