La pasión por la cocina y el buen comer llevó a dos madrileños a crear, después de muchas aventuras en las mejores cocinas de España, su propio restaurante en la calle Argensola. Calicanto es un lugar para comer bien y para vivir deliciosas experiencias. De su carta, nos quedamos con las vieiras salteadas con panceta, las alcachofas confitadas, o las gyozas de carne mechada, porque nunca defraudan. Y de su ambiente… ¡nos quedamos con todo! Porque tiene diferentes zonas para que puedas disfrutar de una cerveza bien fresquita, un buen vino o desconectar con una copa. Y es que su afterwork es muy popular en la zona. ¡Por algo será!

    The chef and bartender were very nice. They spoke very little English and we spoke very little Spanish so ordering was a challange especially since they didn't have menus In English. I asked the chef for his recommendations and, unfortunately, the calamari and octopus were are least favorite out of all the restaurants we tried in Barcelona and Madrid. Both entrees were overlooked and; therefore, a bit tough/rubbery. Flavor was not great and the ink sauce on the calamari was not appetizing or tasty. The,beer,wine and desserts were very good.
