Really, really great food!
We had gazpacho, which was just delicious and with some cheese ice cream. The only problem was that it was not enough of this soup!
Potatas are also well cooked and with two tasty sauces.
I also had a veal steak and it was extremely good and tender.
Highly recommended place!

My ratings are not perfect because their information about hours of operation are not very clear and of the 2 waiters serving last night when I visited, I obviously got the least forthcoming (yes, I speak Spanish fluently) The restaurant is lovely in a quaint neighborhood behind Opera Metro but make you check their hours and whether or not they will actually observe their posted hours. The asparagus salad with sundried tomatoes and vinaigrette is exquisite, squid croquettes like butter but better and the duck confit with caramelized goat cheese is superb. To finish our meal, a warm brownie with ice cream was fresh, rich and luscious- great evening.

Incredible meal. Try the cherry tomato gazpacho, warm asparagus salad, and the steak tar tar. I've never had gazpacho that delicious; fresh cheese ice cream dollopped in the center was like heaven in a small glob.

Great staff and a wonderful digestive at the end of the meal to top it off. Reasonably priced top tier eating. Where is the Michelin star?

Highly recommended restaurant that scores 5/5 in every aspect. The food was excellent not only taste wise but also presentation wise. The fois mit- cuit plate was an experience!! The service was really good even though the plates came with a slight delay. The atmosphere was chic and romantic and the location very central but quiet at the same time. Finally, we paid 30€ per person for 2 starters, main course, a bottle of wine and coffee in the end. For the level of this restaurant this price is certainly value for money. We certainly plan to go back when we are again in Madrid!

The place is relatively simple but the waiter is passionate about explaining each item on the menu. The burrata as an antipasti is absolutely outrageous, the chocolate fondant in dessert is good, and the red house wine just perfect. I recommend you test this place absolutely!
