We asked our concierge to recommend the best seafood restaurant and this was where we were directed. The seafood was good, but for the two people who ordered salads for dinner, not so great. Neither was the dessert so great. Order seafood if you go...More

The restaurant doesn't only have excellent seafood, but also a warm and welcoming atmosphere. About the food, we had knives (navajasa la plancha), cockles (berberechos al vapor) and an empanada with onions and scallops as starters. Very fresh, well cooked in the traditional Spanish way...More

quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
