My wife and I had lunch at this historical place with a couple of good friends that were visiting Madrid. We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful spring weather while sharing very tasty traditional Spanish "tapas": Food was good, service was cordial and prices were reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant.

Been here several times. It's never been great but this visit topped all visit.

Waited 30 mins to be served, several waiters acknowledged but not served.

Finally as we got up to leave they tried to serve us. Explained how long we had waited and they simply did not care.

What could be and was a nice place is ruined by poor service and attitude.

Whilst I sat waiting I read the reviews. There is a theme of poor service.

Pointed out to staff who did not care.

Simply not worth visiting as there is more and better than this in Madrid.

Went here to grab a quick drink in the late afternoon. The waiter was unfriendly and annoyed that we tried to order drinks which were on the menu but not available. Nice looking well stocked bar but he would not do any cocktails - shame. Not going here again.

...tasted good although it wasn't the cheapest of places (and that's not the point, either). The elderly gentleman serving as a bartender seemed to be well aware of his own worth so... try to be delicate, though :)

It might be historical as far as Madrid goes but just pop your head in the door, a quick glance around and get out before the waiter gives you "the look". If you sit down and have a coffee it's your choice, you have been warned. You'll pay a lot for bad service too.
