We just had dinner at this restaurant and this establishment has taken the Spanish tortilla to new heights. They have made it an elegant dish with different flavors. They serve it at your table. The croquettes were delicious with truffles and the desserts were exquisite. Try the French toast with ice cream and the "accidental" cheese flan. Wow,! My new favorite restaurant in Madrid. Also, great service.

I did some research before we traveled to Madrid so I knew there was a fair chance this was going to be as good as mentioned in some of the articles I read. OMG! These tortillas did not disappoint. We went for two tortillas, Cheese and pepper (not the name on the menu) and truffle. I don't even know how to convey into words the deliciousness, soft custardy interior, perfect seasoning, and perfectly cooked tortilla! We also had the veal cheeks which were just as good and again, possibly some of the best we've ever had. A bottle of wine, some bread and we were out of there for $90 USD (conv. of $1.17USD to 1 Euro at the time). We stayed near Plaza del Sol so we had to take a cab to and from but that was no problem. Staff were lovely and patient with our broken Spanish and did have some English language skills themselves (better than our Spanglish!). If you love tortillas this place is a MUST! Be sure to make reservations before going. We went on a Monday night at 9pm (they do not open the doors until exactly 9pm) and the restaurant was quickly full.

“No allergies, no cheese and average hungry” was the only info we gave our waiter when we visited this week with a group of 6 and we were really happy with the ton of delicious dishes and tasty wine we were surprised with. Very friendly staff. About 40€ pp. Definitely recommendable!

Fancy place, very friendly welcome. Very professional waiters, you can see it is well runned. Nice atmosphere. English menu. The place was full, so don't forget to book it previously.
The food is very tasty, many options but not exaggerated. Try the tortillas. It is worth trying . Great meat. And try the desserts , all were tasty, and we took 4!!
They were very polite and always wanted to know if you need anything. The place is not so expensive- depends of course on what and how much you order.
We found it to be one of the nicest places we ate.

I have never had such a delicate soft fragrant tortilla. We had the cheese tortilla and the truffle one. Both beautiful and not to be rushed. The freshly baked rolls were warm as we entered (there was a little queue of Spanish people waiting). And with a glass of wine it was a real treat. Lovely service too. Thank you.
