“A wonderful memory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Dinner at the Club Allard was the highlight of our Madrid visit (we are a family of three with a 15-year-old son). There is nothing I can really add to all the existing reviews, except to agree with the common positive points--amazing food (our son was clearly more taken with the art of Mr. Diego Guerrero than any of the old masters at the Prado) and charming service (a special hello to Osman)--all of which made for a memorable experience that we still take pleasure in recalling and reliving. Thank you, from Ankara.

“WOW A most unusual dinning experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

My wife found this restaurant on trip advisor for our autumn break. I went along with it not realising it had 2 Michelin stars. I now know why. Delicious food and presented in such an unusual way. Most other reviewers have said all there is to say but the Diego coming to the table at both the begining and end of the meal was attention to detail of the highest level. We didn't have a reservation and just called in on the off chance. We were lucky.

“An inspiring food adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Mr Diego Guerrero is a food genius! More importantly, he respects his art and his clients- he discusses food preferences and allergies individually at each table beforehand and also comes round at the end of the evening to enquire as to overall satisfaction. The dishes are innovative and surprizing, a journey of tastes and textures, enjoyable and fun. The waitrons are well trained, attentive without being intrusive, the sommelier knows his wine and the atmosphere is serene and classy. Nothing disappointed here!

“Number one for a reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

From the opening surprise to the final final dessert this was without doubt one of the most exciting restaurant experiences I have ever enjoyed. We had visited Paris, Barcelona and Madrid on this trip and the meal here was without question the best (and for less moeny than a Michelin restaurant in Paris will cost you!) If you can get reservations do so - you won't regret it.
