This restaurant is considered by many to serve the best confit Piquillo peppers in all of Madrid, for which it has been awarded two Couverts by the Michelin Guide. One of the chefs best-kept secrets is the way he cooks them in order to give them a sweet, silky texture, and have them melt in your mouth.
An expert in Basque cuisine, Julián de Tolosa was one of the first monographic restaurants in the city, in which the owner, Matías Gorrotxategi, displays his mastery when it comes to preparation of meats. Steak is one of the specialties of this restaurant, located in a house over 200 years old and rustically decorated.
Also noteworthy are their desserts: the house's custard and tejas or cigarrillos, both typical pastries from the northern region of Spain. The wine list is classical and quite extensive.
