Food was great, traditional spanish cuisine. On the other hand, our waiter was very rude for no reason. He kept talking in spanish, even though we told him several times that we dont understand him. That totally ruined our experience.

We stopped off here for beer and light bar snacks - padron peppers. Service was friendly and it was a great setting for a quick bite to eat and refreshment.

The most beautiful thing of this restaurant is the location and it's terrace in front of the Royal Theatre.

The food was correct : nothing particularly exceptional, but OK (bit princely however).

What really let this place down is the service : takes ages, over familiar, not respectful...
It gets frustrating, I wished to finish the meal the earliest to leave...

This was the first stop on a Madrid History and Food Tour. A nice introduction to Tapas and the custom of throwing your waste on the floor-at least in Madrid. Well worth the visit.

.. hap tapas and wine first night in Madrid and dinner the last night - sat outside for dinner - overlooking the square - nice and warm under awning and heaters - food good - atmosphere good -same irritating habit of plonking on your table bread - told waiter we did not want the bread (pan) so he understood - took away but still charged 4.40E. same all over Madrid. Must have spent in excess of £25.00 on unwanted bread over the week.
