  • Lunch in this square, as in any square in the center of Madrid, is a special feeling, you enjoy live music, that someone passed and played an instrument, a special song. Delicious food. The atmosphere is very special. The only thing that can bother you at some point is the smell of cigarettes. Because there are a lot of customers, sometimes the people who serve, can't spend more time, to suggest menu

  • Escape the crowded squares and streets. Santa Ana is atmospheric and the heart of a neighbourhood with a lot of culinary offerings.
