A Madrid dining institution to try at least once

This was my second visit, about 15 years apart, and I wasn't disappointed as the food and service continue to be excellent. Yes, it is expensive - though the price is to some extent tempered by all the little extras you get. I went this time with my cousin and his 13-year-old daughter, and while... read more

I had lunch the new year's day in this typical and famous Spanish restaurant. My family and me enjoy ed so much the lunch we chose steak with potatoes with french fries and rosted peppers. The meat was so delicious, maybe could appear expensive but it is worth going. A lady very kind served and all the staff service was... More

Very famous and for good reason. Great set up and good food. They pay more on the quantity than quality but still very decent. Prepare 100 euros per person including wine and dessert. The waiter was most helpful to select the wine and without a doubt it was one of the best bottled ever tasted!

Very good food & great fun to cook your own steak at the table with friends. Always a good friendly and relaxed atmosphere (so long as you go after 9pm),

Visit this restaurant and you will be taking care of from the time you set foot at the doorstep. The atmosphere with pictures of celebrities on the walls, tha waiters who serve you like you are their only Customer, and a steak which will give you enough protein for a whole week. Size matters :-) Great experience.

This place is a legend in Madrid and I was excited to try it. However, I was very disappointed both with the service and the food. The atmosphere was quite touristy and left me with the feeling that the old regulars from the glory days had either moved on somewhere else or had hung up their boots (quite literally). The... More

We try to visit this restaurant for its flavorful food and authentic atmosphere every time we come to Madrid. Although frequented by many celebrities (photos on the website), this is a restaurant that attracts at least as many locals as tourists. Most come for the grilled rib eye, which hoi cook yourself on a hot stone. We ordered a single... More

Asador Donostiarra is a fine restaurant with a varied menu. The food is delicious and of excellent quality, and the service is excellent. There's also a large wine list. The prices are not low but, in this place, one gets what he pays for and there's nothing false or pretentious about the atmosphere. Recommended.
