The only thing to admire about this restaurant is that that much artex stays up on the ceiling and doesn't fall into your plate - although the addition of plaster dust could only have improved the food. I had a starter of artichokes with ham...More

Our entire visit was spoiled by rudeness. Arrived at 4:00, the end of Spanish lunch time for a drink and a snack. The waiter waited to finish his lunch before acknowledging our presence. Then were told that the menu on the table was no longer...More

We made a mistake of walking in despite the ratings. There was no English translation for the menu of the day and the waiter wasn't able to elaborate. We ordered few first dishes. One was edible (artichokes with pieces of ham) while the other was...More

Went for dinner, seduced by this "typical" Spanish restaurant in a tourist district. Starters were correct, paella was very fat with a lot of small shrimps (direct from freezer). White wine of the house was just horrible. All in all, you can find better places

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
