“Perfect Last Spanish Meal”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

After 16 days in Spain, Bar Campanilla was the perfect end to our trip. The menu includes mostly typical Spanish foods, but Pepe (and his wife?) are perfect hosts. They made us laugh and treated us like royalty. Pepe demonstrates tableside how to make Sangria and makes suggestions for ordering for the table. Fried seafood platters and Sausage platters seem to be the specialty here and both were very good. Personally, I really liked the goat cheese, raisin, date, and walnut salad. At the end of our meal, they brought us complementary truffles and Pepe gave all of the boys Madrid/spain caps. I am not sure how he does all this and make money. Our huge meal including Sangria was only 48 euros for five persons. I am sure I would have paid this for the hats alone in Madrid!

“Excellent value”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

Just across the street from the Best Western on the main street, this unpretentious little place has great food for an excellent price. Very friendly, too. A good pick for our last meal in Spain.

“What a sweet little restaurant!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

On our last night in Madrid, we wanted a quick bite to eat and nothing extravagant. This restaurant was perfect and the owner was so accommodating and pleasant to speak with. We don't eat meat (beef, pork, or poultry) and so he flexible in figuring out things for us to eat. He even played with our 8-year old son, showing him around the place and giving him a toy.

“Great food & fun as well”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Delighted to find this excellent restaurant so close to our airport hotel, serving simple food cooked to perfection. There is a menu in English if you need it. We sampled 4 dishes from the tapas menu - all made from fresh ingredients - all delicious. Especially liked the black sausage and the pork in tomato sauce. The best though was the fish - simply pan fried with home made chips. This very much a family affair and Pepe head of the clan educated us on the ways of Spanish food and drink. He gave us typed instructions on how to make Sangria and a breakdown of the origin & components of all the dishes we chose. All this delivered in a very entertaining "Pepe style". Before we left we were treated to a nightcap of the house - a kinda Baileys with whipped cream and then he gave us a range of presents from cap to key ring. But the best surprise was the final bill. Given what we had had, it all came at a very reasonable low price. Highly recommended.

“We agree with the other review”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

After walking the Camino de Santiago, we had our final dinner in Spain at this restaurant. We were going to go to the 13 Martes down the street because we were staying at the Hotel de Barajas (Best Western) and it was convenient. This turned out to be a terrific experience. The food was wonderful and authentic and the owners most congenial. They gave us baseball hats to take home to our grandchildren and took a photo, sent an email shortly thereafter with the photo attached and a lovely message. Do experience this lovely town and especially this restaurant.
