Roast chicken down by the river. What's not to like?

Casa Mingo has been going strong since 1888, originally founded by people from Asturias in northern Spain who had come to Madrid to work on the railways - the Estacion de Norte, one of Madrid's main stations, is nearby and was operating till a few years ago, when it was turned into a shopping centre.  It started off as a cider brewery, and is still making its own cider to this day.

It serves food from 11am, which is very unusual, and you can also take your meal away for a picnic by the river or in the Casa de Campo or Oeste parks.

Food and drink

The menu is very short, and I strongly advise you to order everything on it. Roast chicken is virtually obligatory, and you can also have chorizo sausages, Cabrales blue cheese (which will blow your socks off) and salad. Cider comes in still and fizzy versions, by the bottle. 

Ambience

Boisterous and always busy. You sit at long tables inside or out on the terrace. Note that there is no smoking downstairs, but you can smoke upstairs.

Service

Swift with no messing about.

Location

Down by the Manzaneres river, the banks of which are undergoing drastic urban development. Come down here to ride bikes, rollerblade and skateboard. The restaurant is very near the Ermita de San Antonio de la Florida, where Goya is buried, and which features frescoes painted by the great artist. It's also near the Principe Pio shopping centre.

Price advice

Everything is between 5-10 euros.
