Charming place in a nice neighbourhood of Madrid. The food is excellent, traditional dishes well served and almost too copious. The artichoke is a must but the squids and the different meat dishes were all perfect. Reservations are recommended because it is very busy.

The artichokes were terrific, but no instructions were given to people who didn’t know how to eat them, and no spoon was provided for customers to remove the “choke” part before eating the artichoke’s heart. We had a pasta salad, although it was explained that...More

I would definitely recommend to go there for the artichokes...More

This was great location for a large group of people with friendly service and varied tapas/entrees. Ideal for families with an outdoor area for dining, tapas or drinks. Child friendly.

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
