Having seen the rave reviews, my boyfriend and I decided to try this place for dinner one night. We both agreed that everything we tried was very average, and left disappointed. For this price there is an abundance of fantastic restaurants in Madrid. Don't waste your time or money here!

Went there to eat with my wife and everything was amazing. From the very friendly staff to the great menu prepared by the chef. My wide is allergic to many food and the chef went out of her way to prepare her a delicious menu and cocktail drink.

Dined here with family recently. Very friendly reception and service from the sisters together with useful tips for our upcoming trip to Cantabria. Menu selection was quite limited, but the food was good with the exception of a squid entree that was just average. Wine recommended by the house was very good. All in all, a worthwhile experience.

Ate here on Tuesday night with my sister and partners. The welcome from Isabel was like she was welcoming us into her home. Her sister Pilar, is the chef and between them the food and service is superb. Isabel's recommendations were spot on, we had the croquetas and I had the tuna balls in a tomato sauce. We even managed... More

My wife and I had a long weekend in Madrid a few weeks ago. One of the most important aspects of a weekend or holiday for us is the restaurants, good food, ambience, efficient and friendly staff and not costing an arm and a leg. We booked three restaurants from Trip advisor for the three nights we were in Madrid.... More

Algarabia is a charming restaurant run by two sisters. Isabel and Pilar are the most wonderful hosts, and made us feel like we were sitting at their kitchen table during our meal. The food is outstanding and a great value. I highly recommend a visit to Algarabia.
