This place is always full in the meal time, breakfast, lunch or dinner time. There was always a queue at the lunchtime. The service was pretty quick in the restaurant. They are very organized. The meals were served very quickly after the order was placed....More

Great place to enjoy ham from different regions of Spain. If you don't eat pork you can still get local chicken or fish dishes

This place is great for its bar area where a glass of beer costs as little as 1€ and comes with a free serving of tapa that includes paella or a variety of ham. We got the deal where 2 glasses of beer and 1...More

It’s a must, you can choose a great variety of wonderful jamón serrano, cheese and other things too. Great taste and excellent quality. Stop by wherever you find one, you will not regret it.

I would give this place a big fat ZERO if the option was available. This place is, like another, user said a “tourist trap.” Service is slow (snail slow) and the staff is disinterested in giving you a great experience - but we put it...More

This is a tourist trap to be honest. The croquettes were awful and not authentic at all with the inside filling having more of a ham paste consistency rather than a creamy bechemel with jamon bits. The Jamon isn't anything better than what you can...More

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
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
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
