Description: The dining room is decorated with a refurbished Castilian atmosphere and very cozy for the winter days of the Madrid mountains, where you can taste a traditional as well as modern cuisine, made with top quality products. Wooden exposed beams, still life and iron lamps decorate this restaurant specializing in roasts. We are located in the heart of the historic center of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, at just 50 meters from the Real Monasterio. The bus station is 5 minutes walking and the train station is about 20 minutes. Also there is an urban bus line (L1) that connects both stations.

“Lost in Translation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Sat back with several drinks while waiting for mixed tapas to arrive - more drinks - more waiting - bus load served and finished - still waiting. By the time we put an order in we really didn't care about complaining (probably all the drinks). All in jest in the end as it was very enjoyable sitting out watching San Lorenzo absorb all locals and tourists in it's amazing ambience.

Can't rate too harshly - I only speak 1 language.
