An excellent Seafood Restaurant. Prawns in Garlic were brilliant. Cod from the Oven was a little too salty for my wife, but in general wonderful food and quality service.

After our Royal palace visit in Madrid, we wanted to find a good place that served quality meal nearby, so I came across this place from 4+ star above reviews on TripAdvisor. It certainly didn't disappoint! This restaurant was about 10 minute walk from the Palace Real. When we arrived, we didn't have any reservations but the waiters were kind... More

We were walking in the city center of Madrid and accidentally found this fancy restaurant. The place met our expectations, the service was sound. I went there with two of my colleagues and we were happy with everything. We tried calamari and paella both dishes were really delicious and the amount was more than enough. The furniture is quiet cozy... More

Enjoyed a very nice sea bass in this restaurant. The fish was cooked to perfection. Received complimentary codfish croquettes as entree and some churros style dessert afterwards. Excellent service from the staff. Very recommendable.

When you go abroad you always want a restaurant that the locals eat in rather than the awful tourist food. I was lucky enough to receive a tip from someone I knew from Madrid who recommended this restaurant and its my duty to pass the same tip onto you! Restaurant - cosy, Mediterranean feel, live lobsters in the fish tank.... More

I was spending few days in Madrid and I was looking for a place where to eat 'polpo a la gallega' and I came across this restaurant. I did not make any reservation and I was lucky getting a table as most of the tables were reserved. Food was very good and staff very helpful in selecting the right food.... More

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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 desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
