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 - basicaly a tin of artichokes turned onto a plate and a few squares of... 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 available, or something. He was mostly monosyllabic and wouldn't even speak to us in Spanish,... 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 disgusting (lukewarm half soup half stew of beans with 1 piece of blood sausage inside).... 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

When I say typical, its just that, And it was just what we were looking for. This pleasant restaurant has a good variety of typical menu items - from carnes to pescados. As expected, salads and veggies are fresh. Roasted potatoes are superb, and main ingredients fully flavorful. Shellfish and finfish reign and were served simply - no fussy accompaniments.... More

Arrived in Madrid mid morning and went to Plaza Mayor area via subway. After getting off at Opera Station, we had a stroll along the pedestrian boulevard and came upon Rincon de Roque. We were surprised that most of the kitchen staff were Filipinos. They even gave us free calamari and angulas for appetizer. We had jamon iberico, anchovies with... More

Apart from the usual tapas and a la carte this popular restuarant offers three good value set menues a €12, 16.90 and 28 each include 3 courses, bread and a bottle of wine between two. While not michelin star quality , the food is tastey and the portions generous. The service is friendly and helpful with some english spoken.

I seen the reviews on here and decided to try it for myself the majority of remarks on here was good food, awkward service. On first look this place looks from the outside just like a male orientated tapas place but on the walk through is a lovely rustic restaurant. The waiter that greeted the people in front of us...

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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 desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
