It was my last night in Madrid on a Monday night and I decided to try this restaurant out after reading the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. It was tough to find though I luckily came across it. The food was great and the sisters (Isabel & Pillar) who own the restaurant (one is the hostess; the other is the chef)... More

We were the very first to arrive at the restaurant (9 PM is late...), but the warm welcome of the hostess and the cook (her sister), made up for the late hour quickly. We had the 'special of the day', a traditional chicken stew, which was prepared with love. But before that, we were treated to some very nice specialties... More

We had a wonderful night there. The food is fantastic and the house is very lovely!!! The price is acceptable. Especially the service - it's like you are at home and eat with families.

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!

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 sister and I, with our respective husbands, dined at Algarabia this week following some really good reviews on Trip Advisor - we were not disappointed. Isabel greeted us in an extremely warm and friendly manner and made us feel very at home from the outset. She made menu suggestions and looked after us very attentively. The food was excellent...
