Superb food and atmosphere. Brilliant dungeon setting with great tapas. House red wine at €5/litre is just awesome. Bill of €52 for full meal with drinks for 4 people surely hard to beat. Staff also great, and hostess a delight.

A fun place for tapas after 7pm or late night. It may seem a bit strange to descend into a little "dungeon" for dinner, but the tapas and service are very nice, and the hostess is super lovely and offered us piruletas (lollipops) as we...More

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere like a medieval dungeon and the staff is very friendly and nice. The food is pretty good and extremely cheap. I recommend Tortilla de patata, pimientos de padron, and nice mix of cheese and ham.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
