Stopped in here on a whim, and were pretty impressed. The beer is cold, the walls lined with cured hams and the coffee was perfect. The host isn’t going to win any hospitality awards, but you’re going to go here for the general ambience and...More

Our first dinner in Madrid. Started with a chilled green bean and eggplant dish. Chicken and rice next. The most wonderful cream puffs for dessert. Inexpensive. Servers were animated and helpful.

Went there several times, fast service, each beer comes with tapas, their tortas are pretty good and well worth the small price. Definitely recommend it.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
