We were walking past and saw the sign in the window 'special today gambas a la plancha', it was nearing lunch time so we entered, what a great atmosphere, the bar area was packed with diners eating their tapas and drinking beer, we asked for a table and were seated quickly, we ordered the 'special' and a plate of ham and two glasses of local beer, within minutes the ham and beer arrived, followed by the gambas, they were so tasty, just two dishes but enough to last until the evening. When we left there were no empty tables, it was locals eating, not tourists so that says everything for the food on offer. The staff were very friendly and gave excellent service

An American Airlines fellow employee who overnights here recommended this gem of a neighborhood restaurant. I certainly agree with all the TA great reviews! Get away from the Puerto del Sol area to find a non-tourist eatery! You'll not be disappointed. Oh, we never even looked at a menu, and went with the staff recommendations! Happy we did!

We came here during busy lunch hour and had to wait a while for a table. We enjoyed some mojitos in the mean time which were excellent. The food we subsequently ordered was really good and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere!

This is a great restaurant. Price, quality and service deserve a highest grade. Such a long choice of Spanish homemade plates offered by the maitre that I could not remember all.

All we ordered was fantastic, including wine. And staff always willing to help you. The place is packed with locals, since it is a gem out of the touristic routes.

Will return many times.
