Hidden treasure

What an experience. Value for money. Hard to find as a foreigner without tripadvisor, but when in the area a must visit place. Friendly staff and nice place. Only Spanish, but waiter does his best to explain. I'll be back next time when I am in Madrid.

My husband and I visited this restaurant on a Thursday evening prior to flying back to the States due to all of the astounding reviews on Tripadvisor. We obtained a cab from Hotel Maydrit to the restaurant, though it was only 3 km away. Contrary to what others have posted, the residential neighborhood in which it resides seems quite safe... More

Staff was very helpful explaining me everything in details from spanish only menu. Really good appetizers like grilled italian cheese provolone with condiments, original salad with so many ingredients, I think it is typical Argentine cuisine. Like their famous "lomo" steaks. Of course we we ordered these steaks and were very pleased. Definitely we want to return.

Fantastic food and friendly service. We will plan our flights to allow for a couple of hours to visit this restaurant. We had Filet Mignon with grilled Foie Gras on top - heavenly! Very moderate prices

If you are staying at or near the Melia Barajas, this cozy restaurant is a five minute walk away that will amaze you. The restaurant offers inside and outside dining. During a layover on a trip to the Middle East, I chose my flights based on having the opportunity to stop for a great meal. I have tried sweat-breads at... More

Located in an unexpected location (housing area). This is a very nice restaurant. The waiter as well as the chef tried their best to explain the dishes. I had secreto pork iberico which was very good : tasty and perfectly cooked. I can only recommend this place.

Situated in a residential street away from the centre of Barajas this restaurant is quite exceptional. We visited for lunch on a quiet Wednesday in February and were totally impressed with each plate served. The chef came out and took the order himself, whilst the waiter brought the wine list with a good selection of Argentinian wines (as you would... More

Fantastic quaint place. Steak was cooked to perfection and served with a super garlic butter. The chips were the best chips I've ever had. Not over priced. Staff were so friendly and tried to accommodate every request. Desserts were phenomenal. Worth going back to Madrid just for this restaurant!
