“Lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

A little hidden gem close to the very center of Madrid. The staff were friendly and honest (even though their English wasn't the best they tried their utmost to help, and immediately gave us an English menu) and the food was simply excellent. The dishes are big enough to share or to have as a main course for yourself. Since they are also quite inexpensive for the location, I would recommend sharing and tasting several!
The interior and the dishes both are modern and refreshing. Definitely a place to try and return to in Madrid!

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

I saw reviews for this restaurant. Started off a bit as our server took our order then left. Worked out as we changed orders as we saw food come out. WONDERFUL. had guacamole which was one of the best I've had (and I was from California). Hummus was delicious. Caprese salad was delicious and easily could have been split by 2 or even 3 people if sharing. Interior restaurant was fun and modern. Very good :)

“Great food, great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Pure quality and lovely service .The food was fantastic... and unbelievably priced! ( we got 4 big tapas and 4 glasses of wine for 40 euro). The waitress was very friendly and attentive which was much appreciated as this is not common in Madrid! The restaurant itself had a great vibe... very relaxed! In a nut shell I would definitely recommend it! ;)
