We had the seafood paella which had a nice amount of seafood in the rice and tomato mix. You need to work at getting the shells off the shrimp and scampi. Expect to get your fingers dirty!

Recommended by our hotel, this was our experience of Asturian food. Delicious, and large portions for a reasonable price. Couldn't believe the low overall score when I checked TripAdvisor. The waiters English is not great which can lead to some confusion. This is my problem,...More

Little bit of arrogant service but great asturian food. Huge portions, also big salads and appetizers. Very good, authentic asturian dry cider aerated at the table with funny aerator machine. Pixin al horno and Rodaballo were very tasty. Simple asturian decor and central location

Delightful bar/bistro just off Calle del Arenal and Puerta del Sol. Friendly service with excellent rioja (inexpensive). Asturian cuisine with extra large portions -- recommend two platters, jamon with "sausage" and assorted cheeses. Sit in the bar near the windows. Definitely recommend!

This is a place crowded with locals. The size of the portions are enormous. Deliscious but nothing extra in taste or service but all correct.

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
