“Surprisingly modern food feast”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We were recommended by our hotel to visit this restaurant for the menu del dia (midday meal = late lunch), which is served by most restaurants between noon and 3pm (or so). The restaurant was located on a side street in an old building but the interior looked surprisingly modern and bright. The meal consisted of a few choices for an appetizer, the main course and the dessert. The food was delicious, for how much we paid (9€pp), and also included a jar of wine and coffee. Note that this was not a fancy dinner but a great and very filling lunch. Recommended.

“Modern Spain with a twist”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Nice and very popular restaurant in Chueca. I have been there several times over the years and it is often hard to get a table - especially upstairs. Luckily their basement is nice as well. Friendly asian staff and modern spanish food with a twist. Great gaspacho. Risotto is mediocre.

“Great idea - terrible execution”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This could be so good, but unfortunately it is very disappointing. Decor and menu concept is great. But the delivery is industrial and mechanical with no soul what so ever. Food is prepared using all the tricks in the trade to cut corners ( the result is great menu discription but plates with no flavor and tired ingredients) and the staff would clearly like to be some where else - probably anywhere else if they could. Don't be fooled find something else.

“Speedy service but food and surroundings very good”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Its a very nicely designed restaurant with an ample good menu to choose from. We had a couple of starters which were very large portions. Delicious food which looked and tasted good. I liked it but my co-diner was put off by the haste of the service. It wasn't as though they needed the table in a hurry - the restaurant was not full, however for some reason it all felt rushed.

The style of cuisine seemed to be chiefly Italian although the staff and management Chinese. Bit of a strange mix until one gets to grips with it!

I had the Three Salad Starter and the Mushroom Spaghetti - both were very good.

Food adequate, service rushed. Good value though - total cost for two €50,00

“What a shame!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Fab restaurant with cool decor. But the no booking policy means we were rushed through our meal. Waiters cleared our table with one of the group still eating. We asked for a 5 minute rest before our pudding but they came straight back with menus and three waiters bombarded us for our order. Staff don't look very happy and we agreed we won't be back. What a shame.
