Aware of the more sophisticated palate of Spain's new generation of diners, the owners of the traditional Madrileño dreamland that is Goizeko Kabi opened this other restaurant that shares the virtues of its kin but has none of its stuffiness. The menu here delivers the same quality fish, house staples such as the kokotxas de merluza (hake jowls) either grilled or sautéed with herbs and olive oil, and the chipirones en su tinta (line-caught calamari cooked in its own ink); as well as pastas, a superb lobster and crayfish risotto, and some hearty bean stews. The interior of the restaurant is warm and modern with citrus-yellow walls.

I would warn all non-Spanish speakers that go to this place that we found that the English menu has higher prices than the Spanish. After enquiring about this, the maitre got extremely aggressive and offered some sort of explanation, where the market price of seafood varies and they dont update the English menu as often, later to discover that the dessert menu had the same problem, I guess chocolate prices also fluctuate in this global world!!
Leaving all this behind the food was quite average for a bill of 90 EUR per person.
