Great place for cheese lovers! The ambience is really good and the food really great.
About the quantity I think it's not too big but quite enough for dinning well. I did not go out hungry from there so, excellent.
Worst thing , if something has to be said, the desserts. Rest of things, just AMAZING!

Comida, trato y ambiente exquisito

Es la segunda vez que voy y sigue sin convencerme. Las cantidades muy escasas, y como la comida es lo fundamental de un restaurante ya lo demás queda muy deslucido. La carta de vinos está bien (sin más). El servicio es excepcional: amable, muy atento y simpáticos (en esto un 10).
Agradecemos su comentario pues nos sirve para valorar nuestro servicio y nuestro producto, para lo bueno y para lo malo. Esperamos convencerle de que vuelva a visitarnos para que descubra toda la oferta gastronómica de nuestra carta, amplia, artesana y de calidad.

I was not overly impressed on this visit. On our previous visit 6 months ago, the food on that occasion and the overall experience was much better. Unsure if I will visit again when next back in Madrid.

Excellent food and good service. Place was a bit empty / lonely. Despite the good quality, a bit expensive in my opinion, even after the discount from "El Tenedor"

Excellent food and the right amount of attention at the right time from the staff. Enjoyed how they explained each dish. Also a lot of diversity in the food for what is supposed to be solely a 'cheese restaurant'. Had a great time.

I believe they have to improve a lot the quality of the main dishes, especially the meat ones.

Good food and a nice and comfortable place. However, it is a little bit expensive and service could be faster.
