A really nice quite restaurant close to our airbnb. I would say the prices matched their quality of food and service. The salad had a delicious warm brie in the center and the meat plate was cooked to perfection. Dessert didn't have enough pie crust...More

It is a perfect place to enjoy good food, with French inspiration, in a very small place. Cozy and elegant. The owner is lovely and the service is great. Good for a private business lunch and also for a quiet couple dinner.

Food was Ok, but it didn't worth the price we were charged. Service was poor since waitress barely spoke Spanish and she wasn't able to explain the menu.

The restaurant is charming and the food excellent. The owners are two wonderful and delightful aristocrats and the restaurant is always busy with the beautiful people of the city- An absolute must go when visiting Madrid and its open for lunch and dinner.

One of the best steak tartares (if not the best) I have ever had in my life. Fragrant home made bread and delicious desserts. The kind of restaurant I'd go back to regularly (if I only I lived in Madrid!).

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
