I went to this restaurant because it's supposed to be one of the best restaurants near "El escorial" so I went with my friends and we were the last table in the terrace. So finally we pay (I payed with cash) and 5 minutes after...More

Great beef rib eye steak you should try if you are meat lover. The interiors are not impressive however in old Spanish style but certainly the taste is there. I was there unfortunately in the late autumn so could not seat in the patio. Very...More

We were running late for lunch. Charoles seemed to be a good option since you can read at its entrance that the kitchen is open all day long. Besides, the restaurant manager kept us informed on when we would seated. Whilst you choose/wait for your...More
