I really enjoyed the food here. There was lots of choice for vegetarians - I'd recommend the mushroom croquettes, guacamole, goats cheese salad and patas bravas. The non veges really enjoyed all of the above and were also very impressed with the octopus and the tuna. The mojito sorbet was delicious. The staff proudly talk you through the menu and... More

In the heart of Chueca, this lovely, tiny restaurant was an amazing experience. More than tapas, but brighter and lighter than a traditional restaurant, it is authentically Spanish while being adventurous at the same time, and really REALLY good, with a flair that speaks of the El Bulli trained chef. I'd go back in a heartbeat, and if I were... More

What a fantastic place. We passed by earlier and it didn't look that special - we were so wrong! One of my most memorable dining experiences. The food is fantastic, but what makes this restaurant so special is the personal service and passion of Hugo. He eloquently describes each course in extreme detail. He clearly loves the business of food... More

My second visit to Gastromaquia and it was just as satisfying as the first one. I had the guacamole, garpacco, tuna tartar, tikka masala mussels(amazing), veal steak but the desert sorbet mojito is the best thing i have consumed in Madrid, it is to die for !!! The service is really good, its best to make a reservation at 9... More

We found this place on Trip Advisor. Well done to all the reviewers this place was incredible. The decor is very basic the place itself tiny, but wow! The menu is in Spanish but the owners spends time with everyone explaining the meal options. The food was just fantastic. I've never had a salad that tasted that good in my... More

I don't write a lot of Trip Advisor reviews, but I felt compelled because Gastromaquia - and Hugo - were utterly charming! We had a perfect "Farewell Madrid" dinner here last week. Based on earlier reviews, I knew to make a reservation. I called from the US and got Hugo (who is the front of the house and dessert guy).... More

In Madrid there are many choices for restaurants. We headed to Taberna Gastromaquia by taxi; it is a very small restaurant in a less touristy part of town. Our friend and researcher had found it on the internet and thought it would be a "foody" experience - which it was. Four of us ordered food and shared it. We had... More

We tried this restaurant based on fellow Tripadvisors' recommendations. We were a little skeptical when we pulled up to the front of the restaurant. Could this be the 26th best restaurant in Madrid? Maybe we had the wrong address? We were waved in by the friendly dessert chef/server (Hugo?). He and his cooking partner worked at the former El Bulli,... More

I was incredibly lucky to stumble upon this restaurant on TA. My girlfriend and I both love food and when I narrowed the places to eat in Madrid to the neighborhood we were staying in, this popped up as the top option. The name stood out, and the glowing reviews solidified our choice of dinner for one of our only... More
