This restaurant doesn´t have à la carte dining and only offers two different tasting menus. This is rather unusual and customers should be advised when making a reservation. Of the two tasting menus one is extremely limited so most people opt for the second more expensive one. One can value the obvious effort to come up with original dishes but... More

I enjoyed Lieu's relaxed ambience, however I wasn't impressed by the food. I felt the duck, which was the central ingredient in two of the dishes, had too much protagonism in the tasting menu: and I would have liked to see more originality, particularly in the desserts (the chocolate coulant was extremely boring). The cucumber carpaccio with parmesan cream was... More

The first thing I would like to say about Lieu is that I have no hesitation to highly recommend this restaurant. It combines everything that one might want from a restaurant. Excellent location in the historic centre of Madrid close to the palace and the opera. The ambience perfect with a relaxing background music. The owners and the waiters make... More

I was lucky enough to experience the tasting menu at Lieu with the accompanying wine selection. It was definitely one of the best dining experiences I have had to date. The food was excellent, the service exemplary (having a drink after the meal with the owners was the icing on the cake) and compared to similar restaurants the experience was... More

Wonderful food, wonderful service : a magical evening. Because of demonstrations in Madrid that night we had the restaurant to ourselves. I was with my beautiful daughter who loves food: this was her first tasting menu....lucky girl, cos it does'nt get much better than this. We were treated like royalty : the maestro even sat down and discussed our meal... More

The standard of the cuisine and service was sublime! Excellent wine choice, all reasonably priced for the level of what you got! Yes, it's not cheap, but please consider it! Excellent touches, as H20 given gratis and the addition of an amuse bouché at the start and petit fours at the end .... Try the selection of artisan cheeses, I'll... More

I simply would not have found this hidden treasure if it wasn't for the reviews (and ranking) on Trip Advisor. It wasn't easy to find as local laws limit their ability to market themselves (signage wise) and i walked past it twice before a helpful local showed me the entrance. I decided to spoil myself and went with the the... More

I was delighted by the results Lieu achieved when I visited. Fantastic chicken, a beautifully prepared salad and a lovely chocolate desert. Then there was the canapé, an aperitif, the perfectly made martini and the great staff. Highly recommended.

Wow - this place is brilliant and well worth a visit. The best value tasting menu with matching wines that I think I have ever been to. Traditional Spanish cuisine with a modern twist and lots of wine to help it down. Nice relaxed atmosphere and great service made for a wonderful evening.

What a place! Me and my boyfriend went here a few nights ago after he read about it on a few websites. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. We were treated like VIPs from the moment we arrived - given the house cocktail and other nibbles whilst we looked at the menu. We chose the taster menu for 48... More
