This is not the easiest restaurant in Madrid to find, even with GPS, as it is at the rear of where it should be and is hidden away in a corner when you do find the right side of the building.
On entering everything looks great, small but cosy, busy and traditional.

This is because it has passed through four generations of the same family who have kept it traditions and its authenticity.
They only serve all type of gambas and Langostinos.
