I was disappointed with the average taste of my suckling pig and the even more plain callos. The plating for both dishes was poor especially if you take into account the price. Only the house red was satisfying for me. I was very excited before...More

We really enjoyed the experience, worth trying and experiencing the history; food was very good, yet over all a bit too touristy

Their bestseller roasted duck is very good. We ordered gambas with it as well. Make a reservation before you visit because the restaurant is always packed and walk-ins are usually declined.

Their suckling pig and their garlic shrimp were delicious. We were dismayed to be charged 3 euros for 2 bread rolls and 2 euros for 2 pats of butter, given that our 2 entrees, green beans and a small pitcher of sangria came to around...More

Good moist and delicious suckling pig with refreshing gazpacho and ice cream, just what we need on a summer day. Nice historic street and building that is photo worthy. Enjoyed my meal !! Everyone who comes to Madrid should try it once.

Food is good for a tourist trap. But that’s not why you come and it delivers old charm and traditional favorites. I enjoyed the suckling pig and they had fantastic gluten free bread. I was very happy with that!

Yes, this place has tourists, but it also has quite a few locals. The reason, the food is good and it is fun. Come with a family or a few friends---have the suckling pig presented at your table---and enjoy some traditional fare. I even had...More

It depends on how much wine you have; but a good dinner with one appetizer, two entrees, one bottle of wine and desert would range around 100 Euros. It is worth it! We had the Cochinillo it was excellent.
