This was a great place to eat for lunch, the staff was quick to serve. The food was a bit oily but good taste

We have visited this restaurant for a quick lunch while we had a training with a Spanish company in Madrid. The place is simple, traditional and very good. I ate caracoles cuisados (a local specialty of spicy snails) and paella mixta. It was really good and I highly recommend the place.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel. We had lovely tapas - large plates of food and ordering 3 different tapas was plenty for 2. Beer really smooth and cold and bill for 2 was very good value

Cam restaurant, with great spanish food. I would avoid fish, which was "just" ok. With different entradas you can make no mistake.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel staff for lunch. Fortunately, there was one waiter who could speak English, he was so helpful to explain the menu del dia and to exclude the pork containing dishes. For the 1st dish we chose paella, for the 2nd I choose grilled chicken and my wife grilled tuna steak. The food... More

The food is sooooooooooo good that we went there twice. Very Catalonian. I recommend the pulpo giego and the olives. The sangria is the best. Price shouldn't be a factor when in Madrid. Love and live life. The patio was quaint and perfect for out parties.

We stopped by this restaurant when out for a walk this past week. We had seen it before and noted that only locals frequented the restaurant. They have a very nice outdoor seating area, but the weather was cool so we ducked inside. This is a basic tapas bar, and most of the customers appear to be locals that live... More

They have no english menu and our waiter did not speak english either, so we had to make do with our phrasebook spanish! We had some grilled asparagus, baby squid and rice... More
