This place is amazing! The food is fantastic. Slightly strange location but to eat these amazing dishes you'll forgive anything. Will definitely be coming again soon.

We wanted to sit outside but the force 7 winds that day made us head inside. Not wanting to sit on the high bar stools, we found ourselves the only guests in the huge restaurant! Plastic chairs with seat covers but good service. Disappointed with a few of the tapas we chose but nice house rose wine and affordable.

I have been many times to this place and I can only recommend it. It is away from the town and a young atmosphere. Prices very affordable

The staff was very welcoming and the food was quite good. We ordered an assortment of tapas for our party of 11. We were happy to a few items that were local to the area and that we had not yet tried in Madrid. I don't eat shellfish (allergic) but there were several dishes that my daughters raved about.

We have been there before and it was ok , this time I had salad and unfortunately the exact same opinion about the salad as Ophelia. The meat wasn't great... More

We have been visiting this restaurant regularly since it's opening and even though the venue itself is not very attractive the food has always been consistently good and good value for money. However, in our last few visits we've noticed that the quality of the food has dropped and the prices have risen. The chicken Caesar's salad which has always... More
