It was cold outside, at 10pm, and the queue for the "original" and big s. Gervis was too long. Very good hot chocolate, but for me not worth the 5/5 stars. I tried better ones in town.

This place is really well-known and it is therefore difficult to get a table. However, once you're in, it is definitely worth the wait. The combination of their delicious churros with the thick creamy chocolate they serve is quite amazing. A must in Madrid.

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

Christmas Eve for certain - big business. Not so sure about Christmas Day.
Is this restaurant truly open all day and night? 24/7?

No they don't and that's the special charm this place has. But if you want to eat something else there a lot of other places close to this one. Just try it. Even if it is a "tourist thing"... It's def an experience
