A museum and restaurant all rolled into one. Good food. Paella, ox-tail, leche flan and different hams including my favorite, jamon serrano. Great value for money. A place that is packed by locals. Three sections in the restaurant. One is for customers by the bar having drinks and tapas while standing. The other is sit in dining and the other is outdoor dining mainly for those who smoke? If you want to have a feel and taste of Spain, this place is a must do!!!

So I've been pretty much dreamin' about this place since I returned from Spain. This is THE spot to come to if you want to try Jamon Iberico or Jamon de Serrano. ::drool:: Your STOMACH will thank you but your waistline sure WON'T.
My guy and I went here a few times when we were in central Madrid. We had the bochadillos with cheese and some beers. This place is really great if you want to pop in for a quick snack OR get some food for later or the day after.
Very reasonably priced and the service is fast.
For those "non-Spanish" speakers, if you don't know what to pick, ask for the menu and there are pictures there to let you know what are your options.
You must go!!!

This is all about “jamon” (ham) which is simply everywhere around: from the ceilings to the counters, in all kinds, can be bought per kilo or in different sandwiches, bread rolls, croissant, etc., with or without supplements. We had a roll of bread with slice of ham, but there are many other possibilities to try this typical Spanish product. My wife and me usually had as part of breakfast which is also served here: excellent orange juice, with sandwich and café de leche (Spanish coffee with milk). All good and cheap (only EUR 3.50 per person!). And as a bonus: you are surrounded by a lot of real Spanish people (plus tourists) and it is, of course, rather noisy. Excellent for a quick and light bite.

The interior might not attract tourist, but if you give it a chance you will experience great spanish food for very little money. You should especially try the Croissant Mixto, which basically is a croissant with cheese and Spanish ham.
