Modern looking restaurant with great decor. Staff were very friendly and food was excellent. We had both the menu of the day and the tasting menu in the evening. Well worth the money.

The menu is a very interesting combination of typical Spanish items combined in a creative and adventurous way. I've had dinner here twice in 4 days and between me and my friend we've tried a good deal of the dishes on the menu. My favourite...More

Staying at Hotel Lusso Infantes, we noticed how busy this restaurant was every time we left the hotel for sightseeing and when returning. After a long and hot day of exploring the city centre, we returned to the room for respite of the heat feeling...More

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
