I haven't been here for a long time but this is one the best Basque Restaurants in this year. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Starters are fantastic such as squid spring rolls etc... Steaks & seafood are great. Not to forget the desserts.

A friendly restaurant with a helpful staff and interesting menu. We had fish dishes which were so good and light, and also the fig dessert was excellent. If you want to eat at a local place in Madrid - give this place a chance.

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
