The sirloin steak was inedible, spaghetti shrimp pasta highly bland and risotto was ok. Not a place I would recommend at all.

Went for lunch with my daughter, hadn't researched it, just came across the restaurant while shopping. Had a fabulous two course lunch with wine. Decor is lovely and food also, without being expensive. Will be back before we leave Madrid.

We had a table for 8 and ordered 5 appetizers, 8 main courses, a bottle of wine, 4 waters, 2 desserts, 3 cafes and the bill was only 160 Euros (20 Euro per head). The dishes are very nicely designed and the food is pretty good. They have proper meals with large quantities, so this is not a tapa kind... More

Just behind Gran Via, Atlantici Hotel, is this excellent restaurant. Starting with a plus for the Engish taste for eating before 2200, it opens variously between 2015 and 2030 during the week. The menu is wide and captures the Spanish flavours in many of its dishes. Service is smooth and unobtrusive.

An interesting fusion restaurant, that unfortunately didn't quite deliver maybe the early evening reservation didn't help as the venue lacked ambiance . Food adequate but not as inspiring as the written menu , and not the best value for money

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
