Went there for dinner tonight after researching places close to the hotel.

Delicious food at a great price. Dinner for two plus a pitcher of sangria was €30! Will be back and will recommend to everyone at home. Server also spoke English and was very nice.

We were in the area and used Trip Advisor to find something good nearby and this restaurant popped up. We were not disappointed -- the prices were very affordable, the portions were generous and the food was delicious. My friends ordered the meat platter for two that could have easily fed three, another ordered the paella, and I had the garlic shrimp which also could have been shared. The service was fast and the waiters treated everyone like friends. We'll definitely be returning next time we are in Madrid!

Just amazing. We had the special meat course, and we had many different meats, and they were great! The service was awesome - it was the first time that a restaurant had a dry clean for a stained shirt! You just have to go there!

We go to El Buscon every time we're in Madrid. Always made very welcome and they treat you like old friends. Very popular with the local tapas crowd too. The service is efficient and the menu ranges from tapas to giant platters for two.

The meat dishes and paella were alright. But the salad with smoked fish that we ordered was clearly unwash. Some of the leaves clearly had dirt/sand on it, which is a bit shocking when you expect to take a bite of fresh greens!
