We had dinner at Club Allard for the first time 4 years and were truly amazed. Since then we were always looking for a special occasion to return so we did that this June for our son's graduation. Unfortunately we were disappointed. The food was good but not spectacular, the presentation was just OK and the service was average and... More

Only minor criticism was that the two "sea rice" dishes we received were slightly different. Mine was missing a couple of the embellishments that were on the other dish. This said the food, staff and restaurant were all top notch.

Booked a table for 9pm, arrived by taxi otherwise you could have easily have past this place. The doors didn't open until 9 on the dot. The venue inside was very impressive. We ordered the 12 course menu as I'd seen on here on a number of reviews that that was enough. The food was average and to me not... More

Went with great expectations, especially because of the extraordinary story of the chef de cuisine. We had the long menu. All good food, but frankly nothing was extraordinary. One of my friends was justifiably upset when leaving and finding out the we still had a third of our wine bottle that we never got.

We visit this restaurant a few weeks ago, the tasting menu is very good, the ambiance and decor very nice and the personel makes you feel in heaven. Maria Marte, the che with two Michelin Stars is a Dominican self made lady that started in the restaurant washing dishes, ten years later she is commanding the kitchen with a smile.... More

My husband and I went to El club Allard in may and we had a fantastic experience. We loved the food, the wine, the service, the ambience! It was so amazing! I'm very impressed with María Martes story and how her cooking skills got her from dishwasher to two star Michelin chef! I'd go back any time!

Twinkle, twinkle "little" stars.......no doubt!! many many stars for food, wine, service and even more for the "super" comfortable ambiance. Everything is perfect. Don't miss "the" Sommelier' suggestions, a real "guru". Fantastic Chef Maria Marte, exquisite person, is always "connected" to all her "guests" and pleasant culinary surprises are possible. Go for it.

I loved everything about this restaurant as did my husband and son. We have dined many places and had many excellent meals but none have matched El Club Allard. We opted for the 10 course menu. Each dish was outstanding, not only delicious but beautifully presented. The waiter explained each of our courses which we appreciated and the chef made... More

I have been to El Club Allard for the second time. As I remember, the dish was completely different from first time when I came. The food was amazing, you will discover rich flavour and the way they present the food was surprised.

Staying in Arguelles

Neighborhood Profile
Arguelles
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 counterparts, and there is an array of casual dining options to choose from. Check out nearby outdoor spaces such as the lushly planted Plaza de España to the south, which is often filled with craft stalls. To the west of Arguelles is the giant Parque Oueste, a calm and picturesque park with its own Egyptian temple.
