Welcome to Madrid
In this case, the specialty of the restaurant has much to do with its name: snails (caracoles). They are served on small plates from a big dish where they are kept hot in their sauce. The spicy touch they have makes them different from other snail recipes. It is worth tasting them, even for those reluctant to eat this delicacy.
Apart from snails, they offer other culinary suggestions to have together with a good draught beer: baby squid, mussels, cockles, anchovies, dried tuna fillets, razor shells, tripe, stuffed gherkins, croquettes, etc. As well as small rolls of anchovy, chorizo, loin or black pudding and Spanish omelet.
From Monday to Friday it is mainly a tavern for elderly people who just want to have a beer or a glass of wine in a quiet and pleasant ambience. However, on Sundays this intimate place gets crowded with people in their way back or to El Rastro flea market, or people who just go there in order to have something before lunch.
