It is a nice place with good food both meat and fish. I liked it because it is not very touristic. Menu is availabke in english though the waitress was unable to speak English. Meat was of decent quality, did't enjoy the side (basic french fries). Price are moderate

A classic in Madrid, excellent restaurant with traditional Spanish food (seafood). Coquinas, boquerones, alcachofas, ... and very cold white wine Albariño. Enormous quality and excellent service.

Our client took us here after a day on business. It was Friday night and the locals were out in force. A well connected bar with a few people of importance. Very strong local crowd. Service very good. Bar is lively. Friendly staff. We would visit again.

Stopped by for a bite at the bar. The draft beers were fine, the tortilla de patatas served as a tapa was terrible and far past its prime. The dish of sepia was particularly bad- thick, tough and returnable. My only regret was not returning the sepia. I hope not to return anytime soon.

Never been here for over 2 years despite living nearby because it became low quality in every aspect. The service, the food and the general attitude was very bad. It always confused me how the place continued to be fully occupied every time I walked past, obviously people are not so demanding as myself. So, after 2 years we have... More

The restaurant is located in an ideal place but I honestly can't understand the continued crowds that you find there. The food is ok to mediocre and not cheaply priced, so you would expect a less ventured place! But to the contrary they pack the place like sardines! I have been several times but honestly it does not say much... More

We were taken here by local friends whilst passing through Madrid and much enjoyed our lunch seated on the terrace. A very busy and popular place - essential to book - with an upmarket clientele. Service was efficient if a touch erratic (each course one person's dish came long after the others) and lacked charm. The food, however, was of... More

Many friends had recommended this restaurant in La Moraleja. Several times I saw it from the outside and there were always a lot of people, so I decided to go with some friends. Very nice and friendly staff, beautiful place in front of a nice Plaza with pine trees. But... the glasses were dirty, one of the knives was bent,... More

Cheaper than the Aspen restaurant next door but the food is just as good. The salad starter for two is huge and delicious and all the main courses we had were superb - especially the hake and the crab lasagne. Great atmosphere too
