We already tried some mexican rests in Madrid, but this one is out choice so far. Top food quality, good mexican beers, the service was fast and pleasant. Go down the stairs and come back up very satisfied.

You can start drinking margaritas and after that the waiter can choose for you. It's a good way to eat the specialities of the restaurant. The dish with cactus is delicious.and the atmosphere nice

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
quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
