Lovely place for breakfast outdoors or in the opulent dining room for a glamorous evening meal. Formal, with silver service, but not too fussy

Most beautiful location next to Royal Palace. Classic café with modern twist. Nice terrace but needs refurbishing. Arrogant service. Good pastries and sometimes good coffee.

Hi, we're very sorry you did not like our sangria. We would also like to indicate that the price of the glass of Sangria is € 4.80. A greeting.
