We stopped here for lunch, the croquettas were the worst I have ever had, the flour wasn't cooked through and they were actually soggy. The ham was ok but there are so many better places, even near Sol.

This place is always packed. Came here out of curiosity and not disappointed. The beers are cheap and the Jamon taste great. Another great experience from Madrid . Have to struggle to get the waiter's attention because it is always packed

restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
