Prepared to be impressed. It is a feast for all the senses. Colours, flavours, odours, textures all combined harmoniously to deliver the perfect food which tantalises the palate to the extreme. The restaurant is housed in a rococo building that impresses architecturally even the most demanding connoisseur and is in contrast with the interior of the restaurant deemed to be... More

This restaurant serves imaginative food, creatively presented. Enjoying it requires a somewhat adventurous palate, but the food is not so far out as to be mystifying. One chooses how many courses one wants, specifies allergies and strong aversions, then sits back and lets the restaurant provide multiple, appetizers, main courses and desserts. We have eaten at top restaurants around the... More

A surprise in every dish with an incredible combination of textures and flavours. For example, for dessert we had an egg which was really a chocolate egg with a coconut white and a mango yellow. We paired the wine and it was a great idea. The sommelier awesome, every wine enhances notes of each dish. Lovely restaurant, ambience and staff.... More

terrific experience, enjoyed our waiter, the food, and the presentation was unbelievable! My father and i were in Madrid and went here because it is known as one of the premiere restaurants in Madrid. I probably would not go back simply because of the price, but if you are looking for an amazing culinary experience for a special occasion, go... More

.....is offered in this two star etablissement. Very nice interior with excellent food. They offer three different surprise menus (85, 98, 115 Euros) and they ask you if you have food allergies or some food you wouldn't like. You will get a print out of the menu at the end of the evening - not before so ! The wine... More

The degustation menus are a great value given the number of dishes and the amount of food. I prefer simpler food but wanted to give this place a try because it was so highly rated. This is not to say the food wasn't delicious, it is a good place to try if you like this type of cuisine. Only downside... More

First time in Madrid, and have tried a handful of top price-fixe restaurants in U.S. and San Sebastian, and El Club Allard is hands down the top (or one of the top) dining experience I've had. The reasons I rate the dinner so highly are: 1) Exceptional level of food for each course - Even at some of the best... More
