The tostas here are excellent! All the food is very good value, and you get quite large portions for the price! Worth a stop if you are in the area!

We visited this restaurant twice during our time in Madrid. It had the nicest staff, awesome drink prices, and delicious food! The tapas that accompanied the drinks were the best we received in Madrid. If you order food, know that the portions are huge!

I Had the Chicken & Papas. Delicious. The chicken was moist and potatoes soft. I come here a lot on Madrid trips. It is always very good. Friendly staff. Ask for the English menu.

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
