Great little restaurant just of Gran Via. Had lunch there and highly recommend the Mussels - they are massive and the croquetas are yummy too! Service a little slow but not any different to anywhere else in Madrid. Would go back!

Great menu selection and high quality food, cooking and wines. Prices reasonable for a capital city restaurant. A comfortable place to relax, away from the crowds, at any time of day; for a delicious meal and simply a glass of bubbly.

Nice location on quiet Plaza del Carmen. We found the food to be excellent and a nice break from all the ham and greasy plates of potatoes. The salads, pasta and cheese plates were particularly outstanding.

Athmosphere came from nice background music and ligths. I ate outside, but the inside is very comfortable too. Lots of tables, but certain time its full. Very friendly, fast and goodlooking staff.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
