Had a tapas dinner here. Good standard fare, at a decent price. Surroundings and service pleasant. There were plenty of locals so it has to be OK.

Had churros, coffee and orange juice in this slightly dishevelled, non-descript cafe bar on the Hortsleza. Saving graces waere that the staff were attentive and friendly and prices were low. Not really my sort of place and only the busy Hortaleza to look at Seems to get loads of 5 star ratings from Tripadvisor customers but I really cannot see why.

We called in here as we were passing. Extremely busy but very organised. Main guy at Reception makes a note of your name and calls you when your table is free. Only took about 15 minutes.

Service is swift, so don’t linger over the menu. Choice of an 11 euro menu or 16 euros. 11 Euro had about 5 starters, mains and desserts, excellent value and included a glass of wine. The 16 Euro had slightly less choices. I did note some locals who were eating the more expensive menu had wine on their table, but I think they only got charged for what they drank.

I had lentil and chorizo soup, which was really tasty, followed by battered fish – which was served with plain boiled rice – a mistake in translation followed by flan (crème caramel) for dessert. My husband had the chicken rice, steak and chips and tiramisu. Although all portions were not huge we left the restaurant full. Would revisit.

This restaurant in the middle of gay Madrid is well worth a visit. Gicen that good food in Madrid is hard to come by, and when found is absolutely overpriced, here you are in for a pleasant surprise. Food is delicious, beautifully presented and at less than 18 Euro per person for a three course meal including a drink fabulous value for money. The atmosphere in the restaurant is friendly and welcoming, and the mixed cloentele is a pleasure to mix with.
