Fantastic Food

Ate here for my birthday while in Madrid. What fantastic food! The restaurant itself is quite small but the wait staff are fantastic and very friendly and the food too is outstanding. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough! Reservations seem to be needed and the prices are very reasonable.

We had a great experience at this restaurant. We shared several small plates including the asparagus salad, the grilled octopus, and the tempura shrimp with seaweed. We shared the oxtail risotto as our main dish, which was unique, hearty, and very flavorful. The oxtail risotto alone was worth the trip. They coursed everything one dish at a time so that... More

Starters here were big! although they were described as sharing so you are warned! The prawn dish I had was really nice as were the Brie parcels my girlfriend orderd. The manager was friendly and helped us out with questions. We just felt a bit let down that we had to complain about the mains twice as my girlfriend's dish... More

I went there on the last day of my Madrid trip. I had a reservation at 9pm, which is a normal time for dinner in Spain. The place is small, but spacious and there is only 1 waitress and the owner handling all the tables in the restaurant. I had an excellent tataki matching with the house wine. The food... More

We live in California and spend 6 weeks a year in Madrid, always on the hunt for consistently extraordinary food at prices that don't break the bank. El Abrazo de Vergara is exactly that. Every item on the menu is creative, beautifully prepared and magnificently presented. We usually follow the recommendations of the host. It is a small restaurant and... More

Small restaurant and really tasty food. Friendly staff and I had a really amazing Tataki while my partner had a Solomillo de Ternera, it was unbelievable soft and the quality was impressive. On the end we shared a warm cookie with melted chocolate and ice cream. Really good. I would return.

Booked online. Great table at back of room. Had grilled octopus, followed by rare steak, nice bottle of rioja, and we shared a couple of desserts. Food was delicious, service was exemplary. My wife also had 3 courses and a couple of glasses of white wine. The final bill was a pleasant surprise. We worked out it was about £65.... More

Personal and vibrant service. Food is nice and in surprising packing. Full point for display anf creativity. Food, though good, however, does not reach the promise of the packing. Starters and mains with good taste, leave dessert with an empty whole of ... No taste.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
