As suggested by previous reviews the Arroz con bogavante is a must. Nice an soupy broth. We had also had the grilled sardines which were excellent too nice friendly staff.

Food really fresh. For your main course, don't look beyond the Arroz con bogavante: fantastic! Great service and livelier after 21:30.

The owner and staff does speak some English. The friendly service and great food are really the star of the visit. The location is great if you are staying in the Gran Via or Chueca area. The restaurant is only a couple of blocks from Gran Via. We loved it so much, we went back as our last meal in Madrid. The first time, we ordered fish main courses. The second time, we went with the lobster rice dish. We loved it both times. The seafood is so fresh!

Although they say they are English friendly, this is not really true but the food was really good to make up for it. :)
