One of my favourite restaurants in Madrid. Warm welcome, attentive service and delicious food. Great for suckling pig and lamb. Excellent fish dishes too.

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

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
