Wonderful. The taste in really good. And no expensive at all. Example: "entraña" (excellent beef, see photo) for just 10.50 €, tataki of salmon (second photo), just 12€

Good food, well presented in a nice ambiance. Good service too. And an outstanding lemon pie. It's inexpensive and packed (better call ahead).

Good food - original veggies recipes and excellent service done by charming young waiters! Friendly atmosphere. Pretty tableware. Good value in one of the most intercultural area of Madrid: Lavapiés. Beware: they don't serve lunch from Monday till Thursday.

I had the best burger experience in Madrid here. It was little over priced, but quality was really good. Customer service is also really good here. Highly recommended!

My parents and I were visiting from New York and came to Los Porfiados after reading many great reviews. We hadn't realized that they don't actually start serving dinner until 8:30, so we wandered around the neighborhood for an hour. It was definitely worth the wait. Their menu offers an array of plates made with fresh ingredients. Between us, we... More

Los Porfiados - it puts a smile on my face remembering the meals I had here. We tried it one night and loved it so much that we went back again the next day. Everything about it is good - the atmosphere is friendly and comfortable, the service is warm and genuine, and the food - oh - delightful! We... More

Had food here on my last day in Madrid. Excellent place with very good service and excellent food. The interiors look artistic and chic. Although went without a reservation (on a Sunday evening), but would recommend a reservation for this place (specially on weekends).

Poor service- so poor I had to leave. No meat course in an Argentinian - odd. No salt in the soup-- "really..none??" "No- none" OK- that's why it tastes bloody awful then. Waiter's first night- not his fault- but maybe not on Valentine's!! Awful.

Neighbourhood Profile
Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a different country ... except it's hard to tell which one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in traditional African clothing convene outside their businesses for long chats, and people shout to each other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighbourhood.
