Great sea food and fish. We ordered octopus, shrimp for starters. For main course we shared two dishes hake fish and gurber which were delicious. The service was fine. I would truly go back!

Went twice in 4 days, had fish both times. Cooked to perfection, expertly prepared to bring out the subtle fish flavours. Waiters aloof, in keeping with top status! Excellent salad and puds.

We chose this restaurant as it had been recommended by a friend but found the food disappointing. The chef used too much oil in both cooking and serving and the presentation was very bad

When we went into the restaurant we thought wow this place must be great it is so crowded. We were disappointed: the waiters border on indifferent to rude, the menu is very inflexible. Had a wonderful fish and exquisite Cigalas, but they offer no vegetable...More

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights
frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With
beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and
quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
