We had a very bad experience before even sat down and order our food. The manager called Leonardo was indeed a rude man. He didn't know how to talk to his customers. He was very unwelcoming. I just walked in to the restaurant to ask...More

Decided to try here after reading the reviews and wanting somewhere close to our hotel. It was fabulous. Excellent food, reasonable prices, great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend. Hidden down a side street in a busy part of the city. You won’t be disappointed .

Bad host. Not friendly. The space inside is without a.c. the basement is with a.c but too dark like eating in a cave. In additiin we complined regarding it, but nobody care so We left the resturant without eating there.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
