By far the best jabugo in Madrid. If you like traditional spanish food and don't mind so much about the restaurant's outdated interior, then Asador Donostiarra is definitely the place to be for fantastic food. Tip: No need to order desert.. they overload you with chocolate, biscuits and liquers!

This was a great find! Unbeknownst to us, it is obviously something of an "institution" as the walls bedecked with photos of the great and famous testify. And the food was certainly a testament to its popularity. Recommended for a special night out.

Really a must do in terms of restaurants in Madrid. Close to the soccer stadium so a good location after a soccer match - remember tobook in advance. Order the meat to be grilled at your table and my favourite wine, Hacienda Monasterio.Recommended!

Entertained a couple of clients at Asador Donostiarra and the service was excellent. Very sombre and professional. Prices are a little extravant, a bowl of soup is 14€! Lol! I've paid 20€ for a bowl of abalone or shark fin but 14€ for a regular bowl of soup is a little absurd IMHO...bill with gratuity for 4 of us was... More

This spot is most frequented by Madrid locals, so don't expect to see many tourists here. Spaniards take food very seriously so you know that when the restaurant is packed with Madrid locals the food must be great. The walls boast visits from all sorts of footballers, musicians, actors, presidents and members of royalty. The service is superb and the... More

This is a typical Basque restaurant located in the center of Madrid, near to the Passeo de La Castillana. I've been impressed about the hospitality and the atmosphere. You are treated as the best guest of the restaurant. The food is fresh and top quality. When you order your meal you get a sort of entrance dish generally consisting of... More

Apart from the top quality fish and meat and professional service, the rating is based on the detail that we arrived at 00:30 from the airport but still were welcomed with extreme friendliness because of the fact that it was a birthday.

Excellent service, great food. It is not cheap but you get excellent quality. Be careful portions are really big. We ordered the Chuleton for 3 only and still was a lot (instead of 4).

A striking restaurant with a quiet ambiance, perfect for a business dinner. A large and well thought wine list, from which we picked a nice Duero for the meal. We started with some nice Piquillo peppers, Manchego cheese and a simple salad that was seasoned to perfection. My friends tried the Cos and Hake while I chose the sirloin steak.... More
