This is a fabuous restaurant, but only seems to be an "in the know" place amongst Madrid's knowledgeable fine dining set. My friends are all restaurant owners and reviewers in past lives so they know their stuff and this is one of their regular choices....More

It's always a pleasure to have lunch or dinner in this small and friendly restaurant. Delicious recipes with top quality ingredients. Highly recommended.

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
