Plaza de Los Mostenses 13, 28015 Madrid
Metro:    Line 3, 10:    Plaza de España station
Reservations:   Highly Suggested – 91. 548. 7983

This small treasure of a bistro bar is a favorite, located just a few metres from the Guidepost Madrid Magazine Offices.

A fun place  for lunch, tapas at the large oak bar, and/or  dinner, in this cozy ambiance,  with  simple yet superbly splendid fare, of all natural ingredients never falls short . .  .

The Menu of the Day is 11 Euros and the selections are simply fascinating regional Spanish re-invented with lovely art of plating.

The Soups and Salads are top notch as well as the fresh catch of the day.

Carnivores shall also have  a wonderful selection.

The wine list simply merits excellence and a large blackboard of the wines by the glass, is always memorable.

The exterior open air terrace, weather permiting, is simply a marvel for people-watching.
