We had very high expectations before going here, because of earlier experiences and recommendations. But we were met with over-attending service, almost nagging. The food was below mediocre. Pre-made dry spring rolls for starters with no flavor at all. Main course curry with rice. No salt in the rice! Tasted terrible.... Risotto was ok though but not worth it.

We researched the Wagaboo before we went to Madrid incase we were struggling to find somewhere to eat and where chuffed we did. was by far the best meal we had and by far the best value, loved the tag line "fun eating" & was close to where we stayed Oscar. The staff were helpful with us, as our Spanish was limited, the food was fab, wine excellent and the desert was to die for. Think our bill was 54 euro's, so good i wrote this.

This is cute little chain. We ate at the General Martinez Campos 26 location twice.
The negatives are only one person speaks english, the menu is in spanish and the servers seem to intimidated at the prospect of trying to speak english so they can come across as ignoring you. I think the truth is two fold...One being they don't know what to say to you and are afraid of turning you off and Two being that they have so much business from locals they simply don't care if you like them or not.
We went with the flow and smiled a lot and the staff took us in and helped us out. The food is italian/asian. Strange mix that totally worked. We had two dinners here. Pasta, salad's and even a pizza. It is the perfect casual place when you are too tired to get all dressed up and go out. Its about two (safe) blocks behind the Intercontinental hotel. Ask the concierge to call them ahead of time to make a reservation and let them know you speak english. By doing that the staff will give you an english speaking server if one is there.
Prices were very reasonable.

It is very diificult for me to say whether this restauarnt was good, bad or something in between, the reason i say this is because after we were shown to a table, handed a menu and then we were completely ignored, after 20 minutes we decided to leave and go elsewhere. Good luck to anyone who visits this unfriendly place.
