“Wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

My daughters found this one on Trip Advisor and what a find. A small family run restaurant about 20 minutes walk from our hotel in central Madrid. Our Spanish is negligible and the lady who greeted us was very patient and understanding in explaining the menu. The food was obviously prepared fresh and was very tasty and the waiter was keen to receive our feedback. The draught beer was cold and sensational. (not the norm in some European restaurants!) The others enjoyed their wine. The prices were also quite reasonable if you like good food you couldn't go past this lovely place in Madrid.

“Somewhere between average and very good”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Nothing to rave about but we had a nice meal and the restaurant is comfortable. Perhaps the over enthusiastic reviews need balancing. I would say "Good".

“Tasty food in a fine atmosphere”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We did not manage to book this restaurant for dinner so we booked it for lunch on the day of our departure from Madrid, and boy was that a good send off!

We were a group 4, and usual in Madrid ordered all to share. The starters and the mains were quiet original from anything we tried so far with a hint of fusion between Spanish and middle eastern/Arabic cooking in many plates (such as Hummus). The staff are quiet helpful too. Be aware though, portions are quiet small (which is sort of the norm in most restaurants we tried). We paid for 3 starters and 2 mains (and a coffee) around 60 euros.

“a perfect harmony of music, service and gourmet food at reasonable prices!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Every course was beautifully served and delicious.
The only thing I would change is the decor of the place, which fits more to an average cafe.

“Terrific Dining Experience”
Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I went based on other trip advisor reviews and had a terrific meal. It opens a little earlier for dinner by Madrid standards. We got there at 8:30 and there were 2 other full tables. The butterfish and guinea hen were outstanding. Nice wine list. Friendly staff. Go if you can!
