Very traditional restaurant, where the locals appear to go. Very nice mixed paella between two of us, which was very good, but perhaps a bit pricey at €35, but having said that the service was very Good, throughout the meal.

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

pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
