We enjoyed (understatement) an evening at Dantxari with our Spanish family. It was THE BEST. From appetizers to dessert and the accompanying cordials, it was truly a "bucket list" type experience. The service was exceptional and the food equaled the service. Beyond expectations. We loved the cozy yet comfortable dining room with attentive, yet not smothering, service. We were made... More

The 1st day we arrived in Madrid, we were so hungry and showed up at Dantxari for a late lunch/early dinner (~5p). We didn't realize the kitchen was closed since there were 2 groups still enjoying conversation and drinks. It was a pleasant surprise that Jesus accommodated us with appetizers that were a delight. The service, atmosphere and food were... More

We eat at Danxtari whenever we are in Madrid. This time is continued to be wonderful. The atmosphere and service is very warm and helpful. The food is wonderful, with the ability to get two half portions of different entrees, if you desire. We had the cod croquettes, the seafood and fish pudding, and the special pardon-like peppers for appetizers...and... More

An awesome meal all around, other than the spider crab stuffed hake that was OK. Everything else was outstanding from appetizer to dessert. The staff was more than gracious with us given our pathetic Spanish speaking abilities. It took awhile for the bill to materialize at the end but hey, it's Spain and everything is unhurried!

My wife and I, two elderly Brits on a four day break in Madrid, enjoyed this fine restaurant for two evening meals at reasonable cost, located near to our Hotel Mercure. The food and service were exemplary and the atmosphere very relaxing. Highly recommended.

We tried this restaurant based on a recommendation of a madrileno friend. We were the second party to arrive that night and we got VIP service from everyone. The waitress spoke english and so did the owner. They patiently explained what each dish was and when we ordered seafood, they brought out the raw fish to show us how fresh... More

My husband and I fell in love with Dantxari and ended up having a 3 hr lunch. This is old Spain and the atmosphere is incredibly cozy, perfect for a wet and cold Madrid afternoon. Even though we did not have a reservation, the head waiter immediately seated us by separating a table. We had our much desired cold beers... More

Dantxari is in the Calle Ventura Rodriguez (Metro station here) just north of the Plaza de España. As the name suggests, it serves traditional Basque food, and Basque food is allegedly the best cui-sine in Spain. Being located in a quiet street away from the usual tourist areas the clientele when we went was, with the exception of my wife... More

My wife and I had a wonderful meal at this excellent Basque restaurant. The joy of halving entrees was a pleasure so I had half a portion of the pigs feel and half a portion of the oxtail, which were both delicious...and the cod croquettes were fantastic. Can't wait to go back the next time we are in Madrid. The... More
