“Must go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Classy place with very polite and efficient waiters and overall fine service.
The menu was innovative, although rather small. The food was fantastic, very tasty and very interesting. Definitely value for money. Would go there again and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

“Excellent Service and Food”

Dined at this Resturant to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We arrived early and the lady serving us was extremely caring and attentive. The food was meticulously prepared and tasteful. Great main course and great dessert too.

I had dinner with my family here. It's a very nice restaurant in center of Madrid. The menu was explained very well by Mihaela and Matias is a creat cooker.

“Great Discovery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Surrounded by poor-average touristic restaurants, you'll find this spot of light. Owner-chef present, taking care of service, explained to us how dishes were prepared. Sophisticated but affordable menu. Very good wines. Better for dinner. Don't miss the complimentary tiny olives marinated with orange.

“Best meal of the year - so far - Plaza Mayor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

We are staying in the Plaza Mayor and discovered this gem of a restaurant nearby. It's modern Spanish (unlike its neighbors) and a beautifully constructed experience. Modern decor, welcoming and very helpful waitstaff and creative cooking.

We started with a gin and tonic (Citedelle served with fresh lemon grass). The house made smoked tuna salads with gazpacho dressing were a standout. But the mains were even better - baked Guinea fowl served on roasted eggplant and Iberian pork in a sweet and sour sauce. Spectacular.

The desert of four types of chocolate was a lovely decadent OTT ending. Highly recommend - top drawer cooking and hospitality at a very reasonable price.
