“had a great steak here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

Stay away from the Monk Fish. One of the people in our group had it and described it as disgusting. I had the filet, and it was one of the better dishes I ate in Madrid.

“Great Basque place at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2009

Nowadays it s difficult to find places like this one, where quality and simplicity prevail amongst anything else.

Kupela was taken over by new management about 10 years ago now, and it s impressive how the team keeps the same levels of quality and passion every day. The restaurant focuses on good product with unsophisticated preparations, ensuring that you "taste the quality". This is a basque "asador" where you can still eat and not be ripped off as in many others in Madrid.

Do not miss the "pencas rellenas" (stuffed thistle), "rape a la brasa" (charcoal grilled monkfish), the octopus salad and the T bone.

In terms of wines, the selection is not long but it has a very good variety of classic Riojas: V Alberdi & V Ardanza, together with Solar Viejo, Albina and others.

Closed on sundays and Monday night
