I like a lot this place, ome of the top in madrid. I really like the atmosphere and the decor. Food its awesome, special mention to the tomato salad... Yes something simple but you dont find those tomatoea anywhere. Also the octopus a la brasa and the besugo but generally all the fish. You can share half portioms which ita good to try more things. Nice selection of wines. Pepa the owner is always around and its common that she will come to your table to see how everything its going which i really appreciate. Good for a business lunch were you can talk quietly

The starters are really excellent and the fish I choose (Turbot) was just delicious. The restaurant is located in a nice place. The service is efficient and friendly. An excellent choice

With colleagues we have ordered fish which was very well cooked. The salad was very basic but good flavours.
One colleague had the Lisboa chocolate desert which liked very much.
Good restaurant for business meal. For romantics the athmophere should have been better.

We choose el Quenco de Pepa for one of our usual fryday lunches that kick off our weekends. It was an overall excellent experience even tugh there were some ups and downs. Wwe shared 2 starters tomatoes with ventresca and onions: FANTASTIC, probably some of the best tomatoes I have ever had; and pulpo con crema de patata y tacos de jamon, the cream delicious, it seem there was some chorizo too in it but the pulpo was a bit chewy. As main dish we had rodaballo salvaje, simply amazing, few places can offer this quality; and bacalao skrye con aceite de trufa...this one was just ok, the bacalao was a bit overcooked and dry...the dessert was a merengue and lemon cake...it was ok....We will definitly come back to confirm our first impression that this is a must visit restaurant in Madrid....and of course try again the Tomatoes de la huerta!

we had a business dinner with starters and main dish: the starters were all good but perhaps not really special, the main I took was beef which was very taste and very well cooked, very good dessert. the staff is friendly, we had one waiter only for our table. the location is nice, very spanish I would say
