Impressive - delicious combinations of dalt and sweet at a good price

My friend Jaime took me in this wonderful place and I felt in love with the variaty of sensations you get from unconventional ingredients (quinoa, sweet potatos, black garlic...) blended in delicious and well presented plates. The service has also been excellent with lot of passion in explaining... read more

My blood pressure actually raises when I think back on this experience. From the start, the server was rude to me. She spoke only to my husband. When she would check in with us (which was RARE), she would only ask if he was alright or if he needed something else. Items came out in the wrong order. More upsetting... More

Thank you for your opinion. We are very sorry to read that your experience was not satisfactory. It surprises us that our waitress was rude we are sure she didn´t mean it, maybe there were misunderstandings with the language difference (will you please tell me the date you visited us, that will really help us to identify the problem).

My friend Jaime took me in this wonderful place and I felt in love with the variaty of sensations you get from unconventional ingredients (quinoa, sweet potatos, black garlic...) blended in delicious and well presented plates. The service has also been excellent with lot of passion in explaining the ingredients and smiles in serving food. Super! Bravi.

My wife and I booked this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary on 30 June 2015 (after seeing the reviews on TA). We were pleasantly surprised on the choices the menu provided.

Excellent food, nice interior design and very friendly staff that spoke English. The cheesecake was one of my favorite desert.

I applaud the creative inspiration and execution of their chef on their adult food. The guacamole was outstanding (even though the chips were sparse). The croquettes were generous and delightful. But it was a big disappointment to receive a rare cooked burger for our toddler only to have to send it back TWICE before all the blood was gone. In... More

You cannot leave Madrid without treating your taste-buds to the truly magnificent cuisine of Metro Bistro. A friend and I were visiting the Temple Debod nearby, and wanted to find a great place for dinner. Although it's hard to find bad food in Madrid, we had yet to be wowed. As an experienced traveler, my friend refuses to make someone... More

You have to try! Amazing food and so delicious. Huge portions as well. I can highly recommend to everyone. I had the best salad with goat cheese, figs and almonds EVER!!! Perhaps even better food than in second Metro Bistro at Plaza Mayor.

Close to our hotel, but a bit off the main tourist area. We arrived at 8 for dinner, and of course were the only ones there. Two more American couples drifted in over the next hour, but no locals until after 9. We were handed an English menu, but even with the translation, it was a bit of an adventure... More

Staying in Arguelles

Neighborhood Profile
Arguelles
Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced, collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping spot where the major Spanish clothing and department store chains are less busy than their downtown counterparts, and there is an array of casual dining options to choose from. Check out nearby outdoor spaces such as the lushly planted Plaza de España to the south, which is often filled with craft stalls. To the west of Arguelles is the giant Parque Oueste, a calm and picturesque park with its own Egyptian temple.
