I was not impressed at all by the food or atmosphere... and I thought it was a little expensive regarding the quality. The only good thing was the service.

Chilled atmosphere and lovely food - check out the aubergine chips with honey. A little off the beaten track and clearly a place frequented by locals. Worth a visit.

A great place to eat and enjoy the true authentic Madrid night life, away from the tourist areas. Normally packed. You need patience to get a table but well worth the wait.

We liked it so much we went back again the next night...really friendly service and excellent food and wine at very reasonable prices. We recommend the aubergines in honey, the cod croquetas, the tomato and fresh cheese salad and the bigas.

This restaurant was a reasonably priced, cute little place tucked in Malasena with very good food. We had great patatas brava and a really good salad with goat cheese.

Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music
venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair,
narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the
center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends
outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents,
and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on
the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as
many other parts of the city, but this only adds to
