We just ate lunch here. The waiters spoke English and they had English menus. We had tapas and cheesecake for dessert, both very good.

Was starving on our first night in Madrid. Staying at the melia we wondered out and stumbled across this place which had a few locals in. Had a look at the menu and we were surprised to see how good the prices were. Maybe there was a catch? Nope checked TripAdvisor and all seemed above board. The tapas ranges from... More

We came in here for a drink after a visit to the Bernabeu stadium. The waiters were very smartly dressed in uniforms and were very polite. It did seem like an upmarket place. Drinks were fine and the prices ok. Worth a visit and don't be put off by the look.

I would say that if you are hungry it is certainly not the place to go, as for example, my children would not have had enough to eat. If it is for a drink and good tapas, why not, but it is also noisy and you can smell the cars on the street. So eating inside would be better. Quite... More

I thought the tapas here were very good, but not the best I've ever had. That said, we enjoyed them, and had excellent service. We had a very friendly and engaged waiter who made our evening very pleasant. We also enjoyed the atmosphere, which included a few other tourists but mainly locals stopping in for a beer and a bite... More

We booked (what we thought was) a late lunch here on a Friday @ 3pm but in fact the place filled up from 3pm onwards. By the time we left, the restaurant was almost full. A mixture of office workers, groups of friends, & a big birthday lunch party. Really lovely service. Lots of regulars. Not much English spoken but... More

Ate here on the 4th & 5th of March 2016 based on previous reports on Tripadvisor We weren't disappointed, great variety of tapas and good service. Be warned the sirloin tapas are cooked rare not to our taste but maybe ok for others. .

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and 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 opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
