“Great venue for live jazz in Madrid”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

An ever-changing roster of international jazz groups play here. The space is cozy, the crowd is warm and friendly, the tapas are good, and the cover charge is quite reasonable. If you are a jazz lover, take time out from flamenco to spend an evening here!

“BEST VALUE IN MADIRD”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

This is the best in Madrid for value!
Me and a friend ate here for a total of EUR13.50. I had a huge steak with chips and vegetables, he had a drink and a spaghetti carbonara.

The steak was one of the best I've had. We ended up paying them EUR15, that's 7.50 each. Did I also mention that there was Live Jazz music too?

What gives?! This place is too good to be true!

Cosy place for a coffee, drink or a meal. Lots of people coming and going. Some evenings you can enjoy live-music.

“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

A cafe with excellent decoration and atmosphere.
We enjoyed a jazz evening (amazingly reasonable prices for drinks) and then went back for lunch twice. It was by far the best food experience we had in Madrid in terms of food quality, service and prices. A three course lunch menu costs around 12 euros, including a glass of beer or wine, and the food is delicious!
