A well hidden place worth a vist... fantastic service by owners. A must in Madrid. Go for few starters instead of the main dish.

This is my first visit tothis restaurant. It is specialiced in vegetables and this is its strongest point. Decoration is minimalist, maybe too cold for me. Service is professional and attentive. Everything you ask about vegetables will be optimum and with rather moderate prices. Fish is also very good and portions are very large, but prices are also high. I... More

Ok, I'm so excited to tell you all about this restaurant because it was the best experience I had for a long time. I say experience because it was more then just eating, it was a journey to me. First, the restaurant is very fashionable and design with a great taste. The ambience is so cool and relaxing... You feel... More

Extraordinary gastronomic experience, sophisticated cosmopolitan atmosphere. The owner couple are well known in Madrid's social circles, if you are with 'locals' they will come to your table and advise discreetly on food and wine selections. One of the best culinary experiences in Spain.

Do not miss this place if you are in Spain. The lentils are reason enough to go. There is fois in them but they don't really need it. Incredibly savory. They are made with a secret mix of pureed vegetables. Beef chop - get it medium rare, close your eyes and eat it. Some of the best beef I've ever... More

A series of intimate rooms, spacious tables, white napery and excellent lighting make this a very good-looking and classy restaurant, which clearly attracts a well-heeled local clientele. The welcome was extraordinarily friendly and the explanation of the menu was precise and hugely helpful. Lovely food, served with wide smiles and professional care, an interesting wine list with good prices and... More

I gave this a 5 last year and wanted to repeat it! Everything here oozes class. Even the bread and olive oil seem to say "quality". We had both meat and fish mains, both were lovely. The lady who greets the guests and her team are warm and friendly. The wines on the list are impressive and across a wide... More

What a great place. At the time of writing la manduca is #101 in Madrid. No way is there 100 better places to eat. We ate here on recommendation from the Spanish consulate in the city where we live was not disappointed. We often eat at Michelin starred restaurants and the food here was equally as good as a 1...

It is difficult to find nowadays a restaurant which does not follow the trend of serving the same "posh" food for which the flavor and test are exactly the same from one place to another. This one is an exceptio. The owner can advice on the vegatables of the day, cultivated by the owner's family. Follow his advice, it is... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
