This restaurant is simply great, the whole package from the simplicity of the decor, to the menu, service elaboration textures, tastes and a sense of theatre around it. Magnificent and highly recommended for any person that loves food

This is a place where you can appreciate the attention to detail in the food presentation. Petite in proportion, you must savour each morsel paired with the right wine to allow the flavours to burst exquisitely in one’s palate . Highly recommended that you take...More

Good food but boring and not very cosy ambiance. Correct and knowledgeable waiters although a bit impersonal and some with a heavy Spanish accent when talking English which made understanding a bit difficult. And, why do Spanish restaurants open so late for dinner?? Having dessert...More

This restaurant is a bit har to find- it it located up half a flight of marble stairs inside a building that requires one to buzz in. But, the food and wine make this worth the effort. The setting is quiet and elegant, a bit...More

Compare to our other dining experience in other cities of Spain, this one ranked lowest. Waiters are not sincere (they do what they need to do but I can’t feel they are friendly). The restaurant is quite pack and can get quite noisy. We had...More

Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense
University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced,
collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is
filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes
and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing
cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping
spot where the major Spanish clothing and department
store chains are less busy than their downtown

I'm not sure how early you can book a reservation, i.e. If only 30 days out. I would suggest emailing the restaurant and requesting the reservation now for October and they can let you know. They speak good English!
