We walked out of our hotel in a different direction , looking for dinner. I was not very impressed by the exterior- it looked like a bar and the photos on the menu made me think of fast food. Since we were hungry and my feet hur,t we decided to try it out... Wow! Excellent service and incredible food made us so glad that we had found this restaurant. The meals were good value for money, in our opinion, and the atmosphere (on a Sunday evening) was pleasant. Will recommend to our expat friends who didn't tell us about this place!

Very comfortable place to visit, with the typical feel of the Spanish ambience.

It has a typical spacious downstairs bar, with a restaurant upstairs.

The food is fantastic, with a wide range of of "Tapas", good meats and seafood.

Although the screens are small, it´s good for all sports, such as The English Premier League, Spanish football and Tennis.

Open the whole day until very late, it´s location is perfect for Central Madrid.

I like a lot the imported beer, from all over Europe.
