I've been meaning to visit this place for a while and finally popped in this evening for a solo dinner. First the warning ... if you are tall or a bigger person, the tables are going to make you uncomfortable ... very closely set, low...More

We had lunch in this restaurant and food was good quality. Price for Saturday “menu del dia” lunch which includes starter, main, desert and drink was reasonable. Tuna was fresh and tasted very good. Service was very fast, maybe even too fast…

A small traditional place to have nice seafood and tasty deserts too. Especialy mixed seafood for 2 persons plate presentation was more then our expectation. We excited to taste deserts and it was happy end for us. We will visit again. :-)

This is a small place whose owners are from Galicia. Once you open the door you can smell the nice aroma of seafood. The decoration leans towards a fancy restaurant but the prices are great. Best seafood soup ever! The seafood parrillada is also great.

Excellent food, not expansive. We ordered an enormous amount of seafood. They are very generous. They have all kinds of seafood. It was very hot in Madrid and the air conditioning was quite a relief.

This is a small but friendly restaurant. Reasonably priced wine. Small but varied menu, fish and seafood cooked perfectly.

During the lunch time we visited this restaurant randomly. For our surprise we had got a bottle of local wine (a good one). They had a tasty gaspacho and salad with salmon. For second meal we tried a fish and big portion of lamb on...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as

We walked in off the street and had no problem getting a table. Admittedly it was raining on the night and not many people about. Check their web site and put in a request.
