Lonely Planet review

This cozy, Mediterranean-flavored gastropub serves a long list of tempting tapas, including divine stuffed mushrooms (hongos madrileños), goat-cheese croquettes and garlic shrimp. There are also more than 17 house-made pastas to choose from and a decent beer and wine list (bottles from US$2, by the glass from US$5). A romantic spot for a date, with conversation-worthy quirks of decor and beautiful patrons.
