Stumbled on this place because they did a vegetarian menu which was hard to find in Madrid. Had a 1.5 l pitcher of sangria for about €12. Delicious, full of fruit and made from scratch with plenty of spirits ;). The three course menu was...More

While this place is in the center of town not far from the hotel, it is in the Gay part of the city. There's lots of movement here. Don't expect to get the typical hamburger as you might be accustomed to.

I didn't actually eat here, although it's listed as a restaurant it's also a really good cocktail bar. I came upon the place purely by chance while looking for another bar a friend had recommended, and loved it so much I went back the following...More

I had breakfast early on a Sunday morning and I found ideal. The place gets crowded fast, but the service is fast and good. The prices are good.

A friendly experience in the heart of The Cheuca area in Madrid, good choice from a well priced menu, fast service, good food and excellent cocktails !!

Thank jimone
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses
