The staff was warm and attentive. The food was tasty and served in very generous portions. Some of my family’s favorites were the avocado salad, the fried anchovies, the gambas and the stuffed chicken. Everything we ordered was delightful. Classy but unpretentious.

One of the most typical restaurants in Madrid. Food is really amazing (you should try the escalope or the tortilla with callos). The staff is really nice and the price is as hoc (not expensive). You have to go if you want to eat real...More
