    Platos muy ricos ! calidad - precio MUY BUENO!. Servicio muy amable, muy simpáticos. Como único pero que entre platos a veces tardaron más de lo normal. Muy recomendable!

    We were delighted with this restaurant when we booked on the 2nd day of our trip to Madrid. We had booked through The Fork but on telling the greeter that, he failed to acknowledge our booking on computerised screen which resulted in an email telling off for non attendance by the Fork! I didn't appreciate this it felt like a telling off from my mum! NOTE TO THE FORK PLEASE FIND OUT FACTS BEFORE SENDING A TELLING OFF!! We enjoyed the meal so much we decided to o go in ad-hoc on our last day (as it was early 4.30pm) before heading to airport BIG MISTAKE HUGE!! We were led to a table by the toilets (the restaurant wass empty) by our server and then just left there for 20 mind without even being asked for drinks order ( it was very hot day) i got the attention of another server as our original was no where to be seen and we needed a drink and to order asap as we had to get metro to the airport. The young lady, said she had an important thing to do first and then would be with us. I did say please can we order as we have to get to airport very politely. The important thing turned out to be the setting of empty tables, which success taking an age to do. That was it thirsty and in borrowed time we left. TAPA TAPA IF YOUR SERVERS THINK THAT LAYING OUT TABLES AT AN Empty RESTAURANT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN TAKING ORDERS THEN PERHAPS STAFF Need EXTRA TRAINING! SHAME AS I WOULD NEVER USE GIS CHAIN AGAIN.

    Great location. Food wasn’t bad nor spectacular. I went into the restaurant all excited by looking at the menu beforehand. Waitress was the worse. Took forever to get drinks, let alone order, and get our dishes. Asked for check multiple times but she kept walking back and forth attending to other tables.

    How does this place gets a Tripadvisor traveler's choice award ? Group of 8 went tonite. Our waitress was beyond bad, forgot things, unfriendly, seemed annoyed when we ordered additional things. Worst service I had in Madrid all week. Food was just average....Paella very salty, everything else was just ok. Won't be back.

    Posto perfetto per assaggiare tante tapas diverse, gustose e in tempi record. Consigliatissimo.

    Hesitate to go first, as the rating are not that high. But everything was great! Very good Rasta, good service and good price! I recommend it if you need to do a last minute reservation like us.

    La encargada súper mal educada lo primero. ‽¿Osea no eres capaz ni decirme cuál es mi mesa? "Ahí puedes " y siguiendo masticando chicle. Mira yo también trabajo cara al público y lo que hayas tenido hoy, no debes de pagarlo tanto con tus compañeros y los clientes. Metiéndonos prisa, osea me has dado dos horas pues déjame disfrutar mis dos horas. Cuando dejamos de pedir 20 min antes nos dieron la cuenta. Osea, se da 5 min 10 min no 20. Que todavía teníamos las bebidas llenas.

    Food was average and perhaps a bit on a high end price. Service was fast but when we asked for the bill there were around 30€ overhead of things we didn’t order…

    Muy normalito, no está mal para tomarte tranquilamente una cerveza con unas tapas en pleno centro, sin ser nada espectacular.

    The food wasn't that great. Not bad but also not great... The staff were nice but always rushing everything to have table available. An almost 30€ sangria should at least be served to the glass.

    Lekker gegeten. Helaas pulpa ipv pulled pork gekregen(taalbarriere, kan gebeuren. Pulpa wel smaakloos). Pollo explosiva was vergeten, maar ook niet op de rekening. Eten overall erg lekker, fijne sfeer en erg schoon personeel.

    Regular tapas place with ok decor. It's a chain resto so wasn't expecting much. Food was ok but not great. Service was ok but you'll be waiting awhile if they're very busy.

    Questo ristorante ha poco e niente nel menu, mi aspettavo qualcosa di più interessante invece è uno di quei ristoranti pronti a fregare il turista. Il servizio deludente. This restaurant has little or nothing on the menu, I was expecting something more interesting instead it is one of those restaurants ready to fool the tourist. Disappointing service

    Servers were rude, especially the one with glasses. We were tempted to walk out as they seemed grumpy when explaining the menu and when we were ready to order he rudely left. Food was ok and the price was ok as well.

    Good food but some of it came out cold, one of the waitresses didn't speak English (which is fine) but she didn't give me a chance to look at the drinks menu, so when she came over and I was trying to look at the menu and didn't decide within seconds, she just turned around and walked off, quite rude. Overall average, it wasn't the best place we have eaten in Madrid by far.

    Un buon locale pur essendo turistico. La vera Spagna è un altra. Il dolce rivedibile.

    Pedimos unos vasos de agua y la camarera nos dijo que debíamos consumir bebida. Nos hemos negado y eso ha causado que la camarera nos entregara los platos y la cuenta de forma despectiva. Este trato ha dejado mucho que desear.

    The food is very tasty, but portions radically small. Tapas size inadequate for the price. I recommend patatas bravas, pimientos de padron (normal size of the dish), not recommend: burger, croquettes and tortilla (super tiny).
