“Overpriced, bland food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

I ordered a number of small plates, and all of them tasted like mayonnaise. I ordered the patatas con aoli, and it was potatoes smeared in mayo. Disgusting. I couldn't even finish it, and I am usually a garbage disposal willing to eat most everything. The tortilla española was just alright. The place has potential to be good, though -- nice atmosphere, and nice location.

On second thought, Spanish food (except for paella) is pretty bland, even when done well. Maybe this place actually does Spanish food well, and I just don't like Spanish food. Go see for yourself...

Dear Bad Bonje, thank you very much for your comment, which we have taken into account. There have been many changes in Madrid Kul since you came. Besides improving staff, recently we simplified menu and varied dishes: we kept main spanish ones, as paella (which gained reputation in Managua as maybe the best), spanish "ibérico" ham, "Manchego" cheese, and included other international dishes, as Filete a la Tampiqueña, Chilaquiles, quesadilla made of mozarella, lamb,...
I am looking forward to seeing you again.

Dear Lou, thank you very much for your comment. There have been many changes in Madrid Kul since you came. We have different kitchen and administrative staff, and recently we simplified menu and varied dishes: we kept main spanish ones, as paella (which gained reputation in Managua as maybe the best), spanish "ibérico" ham, "Manchego" cheese, and included other international dishes, as Filete a la Tampiqueña, Chilaquiles, quesadilla made of mozarella, lamb,...
