So-so good! The waiter was the best. We spent the wonderful time at the restaurant and the food... Everything was full if taste with interesting additions. There can be a problem to find a table and also it was super loud. But we enjoyed it.

This is a beautiful restaurant across from the Palacio Real. Slightly more up market than the taverna style places, which is reflected in the price. We had a 'menu del día' which was very nice if you're not vegetarian. Like many restaurants in Madrid, there...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
