They have a great veggie stew with optional ham. It was exactly what I needed after carb loading. The restaurant is really cute for singles or groups. On the pricy end.

Very welcoming even though they had a full reservation list. The artichoke flowers were to die for. Steak was delicious. This is a must do while in the city center.

Delicious food! Pretty and cozy place. Rice (seafood and bogavante) were delicious as well as the octopus that we ordered as an appetizer. Service was a little bit slow, but they were really kind. The dulce de leche ice cream was remarkable. I'm looking forward...More

Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense
University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced,
collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is
filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes
and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing
cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping
spot where the major Spanish clothing and department
store chains are less busy than their downtown
