We didn't like it. The gin-tonic was very sweet and not tasty. The place had a strong smell of canalization. The toilets were dirty.

Stumbled upon this place on our last day in Madrid while out looking for an early breakfast. Great atmosphere, good food, great price, friendly waiter and quick service. Wished we'd found it sooner and would definitely recommend it to others.

restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
