Nice bistro with coach and fireplace, fast food and delicious dishes. Very nice people and service to your table. You can pay combo dish-salad. Well located in Barajas near bus stop and hotels.

If you are staying in this area near the airport ahead of a flight out, there is no need travel closer to the center of the city to enjoy a really good last meal in Spain. I loved my early dinner here. The "spicy beef"...More

A good place for breakfast or healthy lunch or dinner. We enjoyed a hearty continental breakfast and they even had mozzarella cheese instead of white cheese. They went out of their way to please us, especially Rosa our server. Highly recommended.

Great little place with friendly staff. Fresh Orange Juice, well made nespresso coffee and good breads, sandwiches and pastries. Excellent alternative to the (much) more expensive so-so foods at the inspirational airport hotels nearby.

Such a wide range menu, from breakfast lunch to dinner all day. Gluten free for my wife was the original reason for going but we all were pleased. Salads, lasagna, humus, curry chicken, churros, and eclairs all very tasty. English spoken.

Went there because of other TA reviews. Only a block away from the IBIS hotel, shared a salad and pizza. The place as full, but service very attentive and prices quite reasonable. Great spot for evening meal before flying out.

Nice place. Great Food and such a great service. We stayed for only one night close to Barajas and visited La General for a small dinner and coffee. I really recomend this place.

We stayed at the hotel close by here and had a wonderful salad and an ok pizza (crust was not my favorite, nor the "spicy" beef). If you order to "combo" they will serve each item separately so that you can share it. Seems popular...More
