Fodor's Review

Plentiful and inexpensive tapas and succulent larger portions—think scrambled eggs with a variety of meats and vegetables, tasty local cheeses, and salads—make this large, tastefully decorated bar-restaurant a handy stop for people who want to refuel without having to sit through a long meal. There's also a more formal dining area with long tables where groups can share some of the more elaborate meat and fish options and an outdoor terrace. A lounge downstairs—with

an extensive gin menu—accommodates those who want to keep the night rolling.

Good diverse Madrid food

I'll be honest. For sheer value for money and hearty, small-town traditional food, Madrid and Barcelona can't hold a candle to Andalusia 's tapas bars and restaurants. Madrid is overpriced, with deeper searches needed for the same quality and also ruder service. But this restaurant is an exception! The food is good, only slightly limited for vegetarians, but portions were generous. The mushroom croquettes, salmorejo and cheese dish were tasty.

But the traditional pork stew and octopus in olive oil were just great! The waiter was helpful and knowledgeable on beers and wines for serving, and the price was 70 Euros for 3 with 2 beers and 2 wines. Worth the Fodors recommendation!
