    Madrid Tourist Traps

    Do not be influenced by all the hype surrounding this restaurant. It does have a colorful historical past. Today it is surviving on its past laurels. If you are interested in food and quality then this is not the place for you nor for me. I took 4 people there for lunch April 8th 2012. Dinning room is elegant. Bread and Butter was brought to the...

    Madrid Tourist Traps

    Madrid Tourist Traps

    This is supposed to be one of the best places to watch flamenco. Unfortunately, the service, food and view were so bad (as well as the stage) that it took the enjoyment right out of the evening. Not only was the service mediocre, but they failed to serve me several of my courses. As shown on the picture, most of the time your view of the show is...
