Food is excellent and service was polite and efficient. Spanish tortilla is a must. The burger with brie cheese was excellent too. Music and ambience typical Madrid tapas bar. Warm and inviting. A good place for lunch and dinner!

Took over an hour for drinks to arrive. The serving staff bought drinks to the wrong table and left them sitting around as they couldn't be bothered to find which table they belonged to. Food also slow.
