Elegant decor, professional, caring service combined with high quality food made for a terrific lunch. My Madrid relative has eaten here and as usual everything was wonderful. We had the course menu and all the food was excellent. This restaurant deserves it's Michelin status. As we left all tables were full of locals..all enjoying the great dining!

We chose to dine here based on the Michelin guide - a bit off the beaten track but worth the trip. We had an excellent meal and the staff is very friendly and nice - definitely a local place not many tourists (which is what we prefer). Worth a try for sure. We did not do the menu, the menu... More

Bolivar features fairly traditional Spanish food, expertly executed using high quality ingredients. The predominantly white decor is simple yet elegant, and the service is pleasantly professional. We had the tasting menu for 36 euros which featured 7 superb courses accompanied by 5 very good wines; clearly, this is one of the greatest restaurant values I have encountered anywhere. A true...

88 Euros for two people including service, coffee and wines with each course. The food was excellent and the service was very efficient. Pleasant room - perhaps not the most interesting but then the food was very good. Overall, worth a visit.

We had a very memorable and surprising dinner experience in this restaurant. The quality of the long menu was extremely high, at least that evening; in fact, it stands comparison with Michelin-starred restaurants (it is in the Michelin guide but as a Bib gourmand). The small room is perhaps not very impressive, but all the courses were excellent, some outstanding,... More

I invited my parents for dinner as it has figured within the Michelin guide. What a mistake! Service was pretentious and rude. When you pay a certain amount of money in a restaurant, you expect something better, with category. Food was bland, not worth what you pay (you can eat much better in Madrid for less money) and really none... More

Dinner in Spain begins late; we came at 8:45 and were alone in the restaurant with champagne and the starter course, but didn't mind because the white walls and drapes keep everything simple to focus on the food which is extraordinary. By the time we left around 11pm, every table was taken and we didn't hear any English spoken in... More

Visited this restaurant 07/2013 with two friends. We had the degustacion meny which was around 40 euros including wines. The meny consisted of around 8 courses, all with very fresh ingridients and good flavours. Nothing too fancy, the flavours were the main thing. The restaurant room was modern and also quite simple but intimate at the same time. They had... More
