“All the ABCs right: Great food, simple menu, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is a simple place, not a fancy restaurant, but it is great, and prices are very reasonable.
If you are near the Puerta del Sol, you might be puzzled by the countless options - most of them designed for tourists, not too authentic-. This is definitely worth a try.

“Good food, decent price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

Tapas were fantastic and the sangria was good. I recommend getting their chorizo on toast with herbs and olive oil. It was terrific. Friendly staff and great atmosphere as well.

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Went here for a simple breakfast one morning as it was near to our hotel (hotel Regina). Very good value but the only thing that let it down was the orange juice which was very watery & looked like it was made from concentrate.
Very friendly service even though I don't speak much spanish & the waiter didn't speak any english.

“Excellent 3 course menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

We found this place by pure chance. It is located very near to the Puerta del Sol, in an adjacent street where there are many bars and restaurants. It was plenty of people and trough the windows you could see the interior. We were told to wait for twenty minutes. We never wait or make queues, but in this case we decided to wait and try. Exactly twenty minutes after we were seated by one of the windows. Staff were friendly and very quick and food was simply perfect. First Course: Rice with loster, Second Course: Grilled Beef Tenderloin, Homemade Desert and a bottle of Young Red Rioja Wine for aonly 10€ per person. Glad that we decided to wait because value for money was simply insuperable. Highly Recommended.
