I took my three children to eat lunch here. The staff was incredibly sweet, attentive and accommodating. The food was delicious. I lived in Argentina 20 years ago and loved the food. It is a combination of many European countries. Delicious pastas, meats, desserts.
My 5 year old loved her Chorizo on a baguette sandwich. In Argentina they call it "Chori-pan". My steak with chumichurri was delicious.
We would definitely have returned to eat there again if we had more time in Madrid. It is right by the Royal Palace and Jardin de Sabatini. Air conditioned bliss as well! So walk the gardens, tour the palace and then head to Caballito for lunch! Nice respite from the heat abs walking. They only have indoor seating, no tables on the sidewalk.

We had lunch at this place with some friends. As starter we got squid(bad) and gazpacho(good). As a main we got lasagna (good), steak and pork loin, both were good. For the dessert we had fruit salad (very bland) and yoghurt cake(just ok). Drinks were not included in the price in the 'menu del dia' and were expensive. What really spoilt our lunch was the rude waitress and she was very sarcastic! I would NOT recommend this place!

We had lunch at this place and it was good. They had a pre-set 3 course lunch for 12.50 Euro which is a great value in Madrid. It is near the Royal Palace but out of the touristy areas and the patrons were mostly locals. The service was excellent and very friendly. They speak only a little English but they were very patient and we did well. The food was really good. Try their salads. They put fresh olive oil on them for dressings and they really are exceptionally good.

We stayed near this restaurant. On our first day in Madrid, We were coming back from sight seeing and we were tired. We saw the restaurant, read the menu and decided to give it a try. The service by Marta and the chef was the husband. Both of them from Mar del Plats, Argentina. As soon as we entered the restaurant, we felt that were part of their invited guest. Martha was very cordial and explain the menu in detail. We chose Steaks and a good bottle of wine. The food was outstanding, the service was fantastic. We went vs k a couple more times with the rest of the family I would highly recommend this restaurant.
