“Great place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

This place is so good and so reasonable. Great selection if appetizers, and main dishes. The service is excellent. They explained everything on the menu and didn't try to rip you off. They even let us taste a bottle of wine to make sure it was suitable for our dinner.

“Excellent for breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

Really good coffee and has a cheap menu with large portions - can't really go wrong with your choice of breakfast with a coffee for €2.30!! It is a typically Spanish bar/cafe and it has a good feel about it, and it is a locals haunt, which means it is good!! Menus in English and Spanish mean it is easy to order, and a friendly place to go.

“The time has stopped!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

The restaurant has two rooms, below a more relaxed ambient and in the first floor a more cosi and familiar one.
The staff was very professional and nice-not-intrusive, that I appreciated.
The portions are great and the price is fair, not cheap though.
We were seated in the second room that has lots of space and we could talk without hearing others' conversation.

“Nothing exceptional!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Classic small restaurant in Madrid where you can spend a nice evening. Good "stained" and Spanish "hamon" serving respecting the classic tradition of Madrid. A pint of beer will make you better spend the evening. Excellent sangria.
