4.6

A grown-up restaurant in boho Malasana.

Excellent produce coupled with a creative touch have made this small restaurant a word-of-mouth success. It's another one you might not notice as you walk along the street, and inside it's all subtle stylishness, but I come back here again and again because I always enjoy the food and it's a really comfortable place too.

Food and drink

The food here is all about traditional Spanish cooking with a light, contemporary touch. We usually have the prawn croquettes and tempura vegetables to start with. For main course, I like the gilthead bream baked in salt, but often have the free-range eggs with Iberian ham. I'd also recommend the pork with Idiazabal cheese sauce and the sirloin with foie and a Port reduction.

Ambience

This is the kind of place where people linger over dinner.

Service

Knowledgeable and effiicent without being too formal about it.

Location

At the San Bernardo end of Calle Malasana. Plenty of bars nearby for that last drink.

Price advice

Starters are between 8.50 and 15 euros. Mains 11.60-23.80 euros. Desserts are 4.90 euros.
