Went twice during our short stay in Madrid. The food is very good with excellent salads, fried artichokes to die for and fantastic chuleton Make sure to reserve a table as it is a very busy and popular place.

We were staying nearby and stopped in for a drink one night without knowing the reputation and watched the chef at the bar creating the incredible salads and starters. We should have booked as we tried to get in the next night and they were full up - unlike many Madrid restaurants they are open early but busy all the time. We popped in really early (i.e. 6.15pm) on the night we were flying and were able to have a table for a short time which was enough to get a tomato salad, a veal baguette and a couple of drinks. Unlike the times we visited when it was later and busier, the 2 women there (there were 3 guys running it on the first night) they were mainly concerned with setting up and less helpful than the evening staff who were really professional and considerate.

Make reservations! This a popular restaurant and the reputation is very well deserved. I judge restaurants by the fresh vegetables and fruits because it is so hard to have all the ingredients just at perfect ripeness.
The tomato salads are out of this world. I wish I could eat them every day. Thank you to the chef who created these treasures.

Along Calle Libertad there are a number of good places to eat and Celso y Manolo is the best of the modern tapas restaurants in the area. Bring your glasses if you want to be able to read the tiny print menu. Food was excellent

We booked a table because of the New York Times reference in their 36 Hours in Madrid article. The veal tapas were terrific as well as the tomato plate. Service was very friendly. Reservations are a must. It's small and busy - even on a Monday night.
