We were expecting to eat at Kitchen Stories (we did not see the other reviews before), but this restaurant goes under a new Spanish name now. We had an 'ok' diner outside for a reasonable price, but not very special. Staff was friendly and we were offered a drink of the house at the end (shots of Spanish drinks).

Okay, I just read the review below this one, so that explains A LOT! We went here with 35 people or so because Globus arranged it for our tour. This was - by a long shot - the WORST meal ever! Sat down at 6:30 and there was NO AC. Absolutely boiling and the customers in the back were sweating... More

This restaurant is no longer KITCHEN STORIES. The ownership has changed hands from the British ownership to Spanish owners - the menu has changed from a diverse and fantastic international cuisine to "typicallly Spanish" fare that you can get in a thousand other places in Madrid. The service was at best ordinary - and having ordered salmon on toast from... More

Restaurante Kitchen Stories had good food. Three of us liked the meals (risottos and burgers), but I was a little disappointed with my duck-portion. We sat out on the terrace. They charged extra 15% for that. We ordered a bottle of water as well. It was a beautiful blue bottle, and they charged over 8 euros for that. Yes, we... More

We sold this restaurant in July 2013. The new owners plan to convert the restaurant to a typical Spanish restaurant, as found in the area. More

really nice food - have the starters as a kind of tapas - good portions. Delicious! Could sit out on the terrace too (and menu says they charge extra 15% for this - not for us!)

We chose this restaurant because of recommendation in Lonely Planet and Trip advisor. tucked just on the the corner of one of the lanes leading into Plaza Mayor, its in a high traffic area. on the day we chose to...

Looking for a place to eat on our first night, we found a nice outside table at this restaurant. We were on the side of the restaurant with the stairs leading up to Plaza Mayor. There was a lot of action to watch and that made the meal interesting. The sangria was pretty good and the gin and tonic was... More

We were hoping that some of the small restaurants on this little street just down the steep stairs from Plaza Mayor would not be tourist traps. We picked this one based on reviews (although most of the places on that street have similar reviews) and a nicely placed open table! Service was friendly and English speaking. No real selection for... More

This is the first time I've eaten duck cannelloni, and I have to say it was ally good. The fillet hake with tomato confit and mushroom pastry with truffle oil was by good too. However, their version of tiramisu for us was a miss. Too much cream but some may like it. The restaurant was quite empty at around 1pm... More

We had high hopes looking at other reviews and was very excited to try Kitchen Stories even booking before we went to Madrid. The food was good (childrens menu not great). There was not much atmosphere and there was a long wait in between courses. When they brought the next course they had to clear the plates before they could... More
