Bistro
“Great food and service served quickly and with a smile. Downstairs does not have the atmosphere of the ground floor but still worth sitting down there if there is no space up top. The food was tasty, hot and good value for money.”

“A 2-minute walk away is the famous tavern Antonio Sanchez from the year 1786, the oldest tavern in Madrid without reforming, so it presents its original decoration. Mandatory.”

Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant
$$
“Una refrescante propuesta de cocina vegana, ecológica y casera. Para que te hagas una idea de la exquisitez que hay en la cocina del restaurante La Encomienda, tienes entrantes como Tacos al Pastor, Croquetas sin gluten y Fungi rellenos. Pad Thai, Lasaña crudivegana y Calabacín Espiralize sobresalen entre los principales. Para acabar en dulce, Brownie crudivegano, Tarta de ‘queso’ y Crumble de melocotón y pera, además de golosas tartas caseras, se postulan como el mejor final deseado. Además, el restaurante La Encomienda tiene además una gran variedad de vinos ecológicos y cervezas artesanales . Un buen lugar también para merendar o para inmejorables brunches. ”

Bar
“Simply my favorite place in town for cañas and tapas. It's cheap, the beer is good, so is the wine and the waiters are really friendly. You'll find it crowded: it's normal, but if you wait for a few minutes you'll get a table. Great tostas (slices of bread with stuff over it).”
