The food was excellent, you will need reservation since is a very small tavern. The artichokes with foie, Venison with cherry sauce, Rabbit, risotto, wine. Delicious.

We ordered the croquettes, artichokes, goat cheese and pork. Everything looked simple but tasted really really nice. Even my four year old thought so too (and he’s fussy). We are very pleased, definitely will come back.

Absolutely excellent cooking! I had the most wonderful calamari squid with hummus! The potatoes and eggs, as well as the Gorgonzola croquettes were fantastic. This is a family run restaurant in a quiet neighbourhood. Highly recommended!

Our Hotel told us about El Mollette which was around the corner from our hotel. Quite a limited number of Tapas but each one more than enough and cooked to perfection. The wine was very reasonable and we drank too much Rioja as usual.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
