These guys makes one of the best fried squid we ever had and we had it all over the world! It's crunchy from the outside yet soft in the inside. The cook managed to make a perfect fry as no oil residue is there. For the main dish, wr had grilled grouper which was made to perfection yion.

I came back to this restaurant after many years and I am pleased with the evolution. The restaurant is in a nice area but far from the most touristic places in Madrid. Next to a large beautiful park named Berlin and at walking distance of the National Auditorium, which offers good music seasons, and of the Real Madrid stadion. The... More

The place has the perfect combination of delicate made food and amazing service. With a great variety of dishes, all of them are made with the same quality. Fresh fish is the king.

Great traditional Spanish restaurant, with good quality rather than fancy food. Very much seafood oriented but then all usual croquetas, bellota and other lomo are present as well as delicious cooked vegetables. Large choice of fish with a special mention for grilled hake and salt cooked sea-bass. Eventually, extensive wine list with a good representation of various winemaking regions of... More

Setting: Right at Principe de Vergara - for Parking you will need a public garage as it could be challenging to find a spot. Indoors are typical Spanish. Outdoor seating very nice in a wooden style under shade. They have also vaporizers for those hot summer days/ nights. Food: We had a gazpacho to start, which was very good and... More

A favourite choice for special occasions, for both lunch and dinner, although the prices are not prohibitive for an enjoyable mid-week lunch with friends that will somehow feel special. (Just allow enough time to be able to indulge yourself fully - you'll want to.) The decor is elegant - not flashy - and the restaurant feels very comfortable, both indoors... More

we were invited to eat here by our friends. Great, delicious food, good service. this is mostly patronized by the locals because maybe the location is not near tourist area. we were surprised by how low the ranking is in TA. A restaurant like this will only be recommended by a local with know how on good local restaurants. we... More

This has to be the best restaurant that I have found so far in a gastronomically challenged city like Madrid. (I am French!!) Great food at a reasonable price.Try the escalope of veal but be prepared for the size of it. Very busy with families so get there early, 2100 hrs in Spanish thinking. Worth a special journey to eat... More
