    It was a very small restaurant but very clean One guy serving drinks and food. Food was of excellent quality. But they had a limited choice as they had run out of several things on the menu. It is mid October so not a busy time of year. However by booking online we received 50%off our food items . So we were very happy

    Fine, experience! Dining early for Madrid (time change from US), it was quiet, but so welcoming and professional, with a great home cooked meal. We wish them great continued success.

    Food quality was good; only negative notes, the tuna was extremely salty, and I didn't personally like the dessert. The price paid for the NYE eve was definitely too high, compared to the quality and quantity of the food and drinks proposed.

    Good dishes, nothing bad, but clearly different if compared with the ones served to persons without thefork ("Arroz cremoso de langostinos y chipirón" where langostinos and chipiron where micro-entities, while for the other group were abundant and normal sized). Anyway, we had a good family dinner for a reasonable price. Buoni piatti, nulla di cattivo, ma chiaramente differenti se paragonati con i piatti serviti a persone senza thefork ("riso cremoso con gamberi e calamari" dove i gamberi e calamari erano microscopici, mentre per l'altro gruppo erano abbondanti e di dimensioni normali). In ogni caso, abbiamo consumato una buona cena in famiglia ad un prezzo ragionevole.

    Good quality food. Ambience could be a bit better. Much too expensive for new years Eve if you see their normal menu prices. (89€/person) service was good but quite rushed.

    Cosy neighborhood restaurant just off the Gran Via. Lovely food -- the arroz cremoso was excellent, as was the solomillo de cerdo. The morcilla de Burgos starter was delicious. Restaurant was empty except for our table, which was strange, as the quality of food combined with the Fork offer makes it very worthwhile.

    The restaurant is a little bit too far off the main streets to be a popular destination, which is a pity because it's worth a visit. The food was really good quality and there was certainly plenty of it. With the booking discount it's actually pretty excellent value for money. The only drawback was being charged for bread even though I didn't ask for it to be brought out, which always annoys me. But at 12 euros total for a main, dessert, a massive basket of bread and a glass of wine that came with a bowl of olives as tapas, it's hard to complain too much about the price.

    Food was delicious. Even though I spoke little Spanish and they spoke little English we muddled through! Very enjoyable
