Nice Restaurant from 1934 where keeps the original taste for the original Cocido madrileño. The price is not high.

Typical busy Spanish tapas bar, great choice of tapas, better at the bar than the restaurant at the back. Mahou on draft, really good

Arguelles
Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense
University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced,
collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is
filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes
and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing
cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping
spot where the major Spanish clothing and department
store chains are less busy than their downtown

Description
Find out our January Wine Events in the Facebook Page:RestauranteManoloWe offer daily menus (lunch & dinner).If you are looking for a genuine Spanish cuisine restaurant where tasting excellent typical Spanish dishes and “Tapas”, that´s your place.Enjoy having a “Caña” (beer) or a wine with some our famous “Tapas” such as “Chorizo”(highly-seasoned pork sausage), “Jamón ibérico” (cured ham), “Queso manchego” (cured cheese from La Mancha), “Calamares fritos” (fried squid), “Pulpo a la gallega” (octopus from Galicia), “Gambas al ajillo” (shrimp in garlic sauce)… and a wide variety of them.In order to guarantee the freshness and quality of our recipes, we personally import our fish and meat from the Galician shores and fields, making a significant difference in the taste of our dishes. Do not leave Madrid without tasting our dishes of genuine galician and madrilian cuisine such as “Cocido madrileño” (typical stew of Madrid), “Callos” (madrilian typical sticky casserole of veal tripe and cheeks), “Bistec de ternera gallega” (veal steak from Galicia), “Solomillo de vacuno” (veal sirloin steak), “Merluza a la gallega” (Galician recipe of hake), and a large list of dishes.A professional wait staff with our kitchen team and a classical decoration and furniture that evokes the Spanish restaurants of the early 20th century make the client experience unforgettable.
