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.

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

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
