This place had strong ratings so tried it as in Madrid for a few days. I don’t know where their ratings came from but I would describe this as cheap student food heated in the microwave. Food doesn’t come out that quickly at that temperature...More

Rarely do I feel misled by reviews here, but there was a disconnect on the “top” reviews by many and my own decent but not extraordinary experience. Cute little neighborhood spot in a less touristy but youthful & fun neighborhood. Warm casual service. Laminated menu...More
