It's all you can expect for a restaurant of this category. Elegant, quiet, exquisite and conventional. Good for business meetings o for a family gathering. Better for adults than for young people.

In the Salamanca area of Madrid, this fish-centric restaurant has impeccable service, English-fluent waiters and superb food. A multicourse dinner for two with wine was around 130 Euros.

Traditional fish restaurant in Madrid. Friendly environment, excellent service. Seafood appetizers include shrimp, clams, octopus, sardines, chipirones, calamari. We ordered fileted Mediterranean sole as a main and it was cooked to perfection. Good selection of wines. Highly recommended!

Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights

beautiful condominium buildings that make up most

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
