Used to be one of the best restaurants in Madrid. Unfortunately under refurbishment until September, so only the bar open. The guard outside was doing a selfie, and when asked if a place free he said he needed to check if any table free - only to find a nearly completly empty downstairs bar/reduced restaurant. Food was soo so, fish... More

My expectations weren't too high but I was very positively impressed. Mini tapas were really excellent and my wife and I really enjoyed the experience. Staff was friendly and all dishes excellent. Our favourite was probably the shrimp carpaccio.

The food will not knock you out, but it is appealing and different. Lunch for 2 was about $250 USD. Enjoyed it and would go back but the food lacks a bit of flavor, i.e. all the dishes were very subtle it taste. Wonderful staff.

Maybe the bad start was the need to make reservation month in advance, confirm and reconfirm reservation, all messages received in Spanish, demanding a phone call a day before (email not accepted) demanding a certain dress code that was in fact not really observed by other clients that evening. We ordered the tasting menu and wanted the wine paring option,... More

Went there for a dinner with friends. It is located in a well-off area. Calm and sleek atmosphere (although a couple of paintings would not harm on the bare walls). Food was just ok, nothing exciting, almost dull. The numerous variety of amuse-bouches were not impressive and taste was not there all the time. Desserts absolutely sub-standard: too simple, tasteless... More

I visited this restaurant for a special-occasion dinner and it was well worth the (high) cost. The food, -in my opinion- is absolutely amazing, caring in every detail, very elaborated and impressively achieved. I had the full 135€ "Sergi Arola" menu which includes 2 starters, 2 main courses, and 2 desserts. However the menu included much much more, with extra... More

We enjoyed the discovery menu that allows the creation of a tasting menu with a fish and meat half sized main course, in addtion to tapas, a starter and a dessert. There were a couple of dishes that were not (relatively) as good but overall the quality of food was very high. Service was impeccable and the sommelier was particularly... More

This restaurant has great reputation and thus the expectation when visiting is high. The place is nice and service is good. The meal, however, is not as memorable as one would expect from this kind of place, the "wow" factor is absent. The wine list is very good and suggestions are good. One dining in a Michelin star restaurant, one... More

If you feel and can splash out one night , you must go here. It has 2 well deserved michelin stars. The food is out of this world, difficult to explain really, but the first class ingredients, unusual combination(not crazy ones though) the service good and discrete, even the choise of crockery is an amasing experience . However its not... More

The last time we had dinner at a two star Michelin restaurant we were so disappointed that we said "never again". But after we were prompted by friends to dine together at Sergi Arola we forgot about our promise and we went. And it was well worth it. The food was amazing, the service excellent, especially our waiter who took... More
