For our 10 day trip to Spain this dinner probably was our least favorite for a number of reasons. Upon arriving for our reservation, the upstairs was rather vibrant but with tables available, yet they pushed our party of two down to what I'll refer to as the basement dungeon where perhaps they steer tourists. We were dressed appropriately, nothing... More

Great food, I appreciate the fact that it might not be as impressive sensually as El Club Allard. But it tastes great. On a Monday evening the atmosphere left a bit to be desired, however I can imagine it being much better on the weekends. If you aren't bothered by small quiet restaurants definitely go on a Monday. However the... More

I chose this restaurant on the recommendation of my boss who had dined there only six months before. It was our 30th wedding anniversary dinner and I particularly wanted it to be special. This restaurant did not let me down. The service was very good - attentive without hovering. I was a little nervous about whether the size of the... More

First of all, I rarely write reviews about restaurants or hotels, but I made an effort to give a review about this particular restaurant. I found this restaurant from TripAdvisor, and even though it was ranked number 21, I decided to go there on May 28, 2014, and I was so happy that I did! Before talking about the dishes,... More

The food was outstanding, and the service was friendly and attentive. We had a menu including a wine arrangement and the wine and food were a perfect match. All dishes were amazing and very original.

One of the best restaurants I've ever being to. You outta try this one when in Madrid. Take your wife or fiance or girfriend/boyfriend and have a tremendous experience. Small dishes, great tastes and plenty of flavours. Ask for a wine or beer if you want, both are very good as well. The waitress ask you if you have any... More

Put the flowers on the plate for decoration. It had impressed me that the fresh tomato juice tasted really nice, which was best tomato juice I have ever drank.

This restaurant is very nice. I went there on a weekend so the only option is going for the set menu. They asked for allergies or things we didn't like but I doubt they change the initial menu a bit, as 3 out of 5 dishes were fish when asked to avoid it if possible by part of the group.... More

One of the most creative tasting menus I've experienced. Every dish was a standout it looked and tasted divine and was bursting with flavour but not overpowering. I have had meals at restaurants rated in 25 best in the world and this place can compete with the very best. The place is elegant in an understated way but in my... More

This was one of my pics for a top flight meal during our recent trip to Spain and Portugal. It did not disappoint. We were there right before Christmas and it was fun to see the various Madrilenos there for holiday celebrations. In fact, we were the only Americans the night we visited. Our tasting menu (about 7 courses--sorry, we... More
