“Don't go there...come here...!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Seriously good, Spanish restaurant, where Spanish folk go. Worth looking for, It's down a dark little side streeet just off the Gran Via. Place was heaving. Staff didn't have great english - and were rushed off their feet - but the choice and the prices meant the meal for 3 was 40 euros cheaper than other chain restaurants charged us.

Clean, busy restaurant with efficient service. I'd go back.

“Astounding value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

It may not be the best food in Madrid, but it is not far off yet it charges budget prices. We assumed the wine prices were per glass but were wrong you got a whole bottle!
Surroundings are opulent but a little congested. Staff are highly competent but might be a little more friendly.
So where is the catch? Well they do not take reservations, you queue up before opening time and on a popular night all tables are taken within 15 minutes of opening so you will be fed and moved on in a little over an hour. Don't expect to spend the evening there.
If you are in Madrid, this place is not to be missed

“I love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Great place, previous reviews comment that food arrives quick, yes it does-good thing or bad thing I dunno but the food is very, very good and the value of this place is incredible given you are in the pulsating heart of Madrid. It might not to be everyone's preference but it's definitely worth one meal and an hour of your life for you to decide,

Recommended and without question I'll return....when I return!

“Great food, huge portions for cheap prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

On our first night in Madrid we were looking for food by just walking around. We had several options to visit but deceided to visit this restaurant. We didn't saw reviews from the restaurant in advance so it was a a complete guess.

We were really hungry so we ordered three tapas as a start. The common patatas Bravas, some spanish bacon and calamares. As main dish we ordered a veal entrecote and a beef entrecote.

Not long after we ordered, the starters came to our table. Wow, if we had known the portions were that big, we ordered a little less. We didn't eat all the tapas cause we had to leave some space for the maindish.

The meat was baked very well, tasted excellent and the portion was huge. I just found back the receipt we got. Entrecote plancha 9,86 euro, Entrecote con salsa 9,95 euro ... for 50 euro we had three course dinner including wine !

The only negative part from this restaurant is that they serve you almost immediatly your next dish but if you know this in advance, just tell the staff you want to wait a little between the courses and everything will be fine.
