Excellent food, innovative, good service. highly deserving of a Michelin star. The menu is innovative and full of surprises, the portions adequate and making you wish to try more. Will certainly return upon next visit to Madrid.

Excellent attention. The food, whatever the chef may have in mind that day. Come prepared to be surprised. It's one of the most enjoyable dining experiences. The wine selection is superb. With wine from small vineyards. Simply exquisite.

We visited here on a quiet Monday evening, and had the tasting menu.. All in all we were very impressed with the experience. I cannot state enough that for such a fair price, you get some very clever cuisine and great service. First of all the decor and building itself is great.. The big traditional door, art, and downstairs all... More

What went wrong here? We still don't know. Everything seems to be perfect with Lua and completely in line with what we typically like: Zen-style, beautifully and lovingly designed interior, great artwork, minimalist yet innovative approach to food: you name it, we like it. Sure, the atmosphere was not perfect, as it was a very quiet evening on a working... More

We had a degustation. It was ok. Some courses were a little too adventurous for our group's palate. I really liked the tuna sashimi course. Service was good too.

At first site the restaurant gives the feel of high class, but at closer look, not that much! Very polite waiters, all handsome and with a smile! Service was very attentive, but we were only three people on a Monday lunch so... The decor was calm and nice, light background music, i only found the "framed art" a little stupid... More

A lovely restaurant with excellent food, very good service and soothing atmosphere. We chose menú Lúa with recommended wine-selection which was a great choice. We are more than satisfied and recommend it warmly.
