Great location, food is good, not overwhelming though and portions could be a little larger for a grownup man. Service is good, the waiter gave you the feeling of being 'important', which isn't bad. All in all well worth a visit.

We visited for dinner, and ate outside. To start with the positive, the restaurant was very nice, and the outside dining area was great. Though only feet from the street and cars, there was a clear barrier that kept the road noise and fumes to...More

This self-important restaurant manages to give the impression that it is doing you a favour by tolerating your presence. The staff are much too busy kowtowing to the wealthy regulars to attend to blow-ins. The food was OK but the prices could not be justified...More

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights
frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With
beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and
quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
