Going Greek in the heart of Madrid

During our 3-night stay in Madrid we decided to do something different for dinner on night #2. Instead of the more popular tourist choice of tapas or paella we searched for and found a Greek restaurant. We started with dolmades followed by a 2-person tasting plate (the "Rhodes") which was made up... read more

My wife and I had the displeasure of having a meal at Delfos mainly because it was very close to our hotel and we hadn't had Greek food in a while. I, myself am a Greek living abroad, and I know authentic Greek food, since this is what I was raised with. Service was poor, production of plates was extremely... More

We went to lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. First to arrive at 2pm, but it filled up quickly. Service was very good. We tried a sampler of the Greek dips which was very interesting and definitely worth tasting the many varied examples. Their pita bread was excellent. We then tried the Moussaka and the grilled Octopus, and both were... More

Despite the extravagant prices, this restaurant is one of the best Greek restaurants I've ever been to! I do not agree at all with the precious reviewer about 'tasteless' food or poor service. Did you come to the same place as us??? I have traveled extensively in the Greek isles, and never have I had such a fresh, delicious meal... More

Went there from a review from an old Frommers. We got there at 7:30pm and was told restaurant was closed and wouldn't open till 8:30pm. We decided to go across the street to their Tapas outside bar & have a beer till they opened. We sit down & it takes the waiter over 10 minutes to get our order the... More

Compared to other Greek restaurants in Madrid, Delfos is a relief because the food actually resembles proper Greek and not Spanish tapas. The decor is cozy and welcoming, with good traditional music although perhaps more space would be cool too. Try it and you won't be disappointed!

Our American son has spent the past 4 months in Spain in a small town, and we went to visit him and took him to Madrid. His request: anything but tapas! So we looked for other cuisines, and found this Greek gem via tripadvisor. We found the food to be very good and quite authentic to Greek cuisine. The service... More

Had visited this restaurant on a trip last year and was impressed by the food quality and friendly staff. This year, still good but slightly different. Waiters who were not overly friendly and seemed a bit put out that tourists wanted to eat there. That said, we got a table and the food was delicious, as before. We had 3... More

Delfos was a pleasant enough restaurant with good food. We don't get to have Greek food very often, but the offerings appeared genuine -- more than just gyros. The pace was casual (a bit slow) but that was just fine, because we had no plans for later in the evening. Portions were big (as is often the case with Greek... More

This small restaurant was a definite miss. They appeared not very happy to get guests, waiters mostly amused other waiters, seldom looked after the guests. Food was adequate at best, but probably not even that. Bill was a shock: close to 30 Euros for a main course (very small dish) and one Coke.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
