We had dinner here on our first night in Madrid. We had the clams for a starter, crab bisque, and for mains we had the fried Hake and lamb shank. The restaurant serves food in half or full portion and so is great for small eaters who want to try different stuff. Food is tasty and we enjoyed our dinner.... More

As well located in the shic Salamanca area - allowing for a perfect shopping-break. We tried about 6 different dishes and all of them were of outstanding quality and tastes. White wine recommendation were a true delight; Belondrade u Lurton. Compared to the more expensive El Paraguas, about 50 meters up the street, this eatery offers as good quality food,... More

We were taken to this place by friends that lived in Madrid, and it was highly recommended. It was a great experience. We were placed downstairs in their cozy, tavern like room that was very spacious, and warm. The food was very good and great for sharing. We had the croquettes which were crispy on the outside, yet creamy on... More

If you want to throw away 110 euros, go ahead and eat in this restaurant: Food minimal, service very bad in all regards, prices high premium. I hardly ever felt so ripped off

We went twice to this restaurant and the second time sat outside. The food is very tasty and great for sharing dishes. We had croquettes, sardine salad, Chuleton, desserts, 2 bottles of wine and 2 bottles of water and it cost £50 per head (for 4 ). not cheap but worth it. I will go back next time I'm in... More

Alkalde is located in the Serrano shopping district, and the restaurant has a certain charm about it. I had the opportunity of having lunch here with some colleagues. The restaurant offers traditional Basque cuisine, which is absolutely delightful, and the dessert , has only one word to describe it, Divine. If you're doing shopping in this district, this is a...

With our legs throbbing from hiking all over Madrid, we saw Alkalde and stopped in for lunch. The soups and food in general were all fantastic. We were the only non-spanish speaking people in the place. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

I make a point of visiting this restaurant when I visit Madrid, the food is amazing and the service is outstanding. The menu has something for everyone, meat eaters will be in heaven, fish lovers have an equally fine choice and the appetizers are delicious. The place is a little expensive but worth every penny and well worth a visit... More

Probably a few years ago quality was better, but today it is just an average place to have food. It is small and well located place. Services is very good considering the amount of... More
