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.

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 If you like traditional spanish food and don't mind so much about the restaurant's outdated interior, then Asador Donostiarra is definitely the place to be for fantastic food.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!

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
