Reviewed December 27, 2023 via mobile

Absolutely horrible for travelers who do not speak any Spanish. While the staff was fluent in English, there were no menus at all. All menus were online and the English version did not match the Spanish version. When we asked for physical menus they told...us they did not have any although they had physical drink menus. Cell service was slow in location so could not even bring up the menu on some phones. When I had made the reservation two months ago I had checked the menu and was delighted but at the restaurant the menu was entirely different. They said they change the menu every week which is why they did not have physical menus and the online menus were not updated to reflect the changing menus nor did the staff attempt to help us translate the online menus even after we informed them that none of our party spoke or read Spanish. I am not sure how they are so highly rated on TripAdvisor. We left immediately in search of a restaurant with menus we could translate and found plenty nearby. We will not be returningMore

Everything was simply great. Good service since the initial confirmation call (Antonio). The best starter the Portobello and the Oreja! Meat balls, tuna, fish, … great mix of tastes. All recommendations from Silvio! Really recommend this place ! Try it

It was our second time in this place. And we would definitely recommend this place, if you are looking for a delicious food, great atmosphere and excellent hospitality. Humus and croquettes were great, and cannelloni were simply excellent.

What an awesome restaurant. We went there for my father’s birthday and the experience was unforgettable. The service was outstanding and the food was incredible. The whole menu comprises Spanish classics with a modern twist. Every dish we had was outstanding, but the aubergine starters,...and the oxtail cannelloni were particularly memorable. The staff were also very attentive with my elderly parents and my 2-year old. I highly recommend for a family meal, but I can also see how this would be a great choice for a business lunchMore

Exceptional. What they are doing here is something very special. Mushrooms to start with croquettes, followed by tuna and the wild boar meatballs as our mains. Then blue cheese cheesecake and a chocolate nest for dessert. Silvio was a friendly and helpful host. A superb...end to our trip to Madrid.More

This restaurant is one of the best in Madrid. Antonio provides such a personal touch and gives excellent recommendations. Silvio and Daniel are top notch. Excellent berenjenas and I highly recommend Alma Silense. A fabulous spot in my favorite city. Saludos amigos!

This suggestive restaurant call your attention the first moment you read the menu. A “descarada” woman, is one that is sensual , provocative and without any moral restraints.Figure this out ! The menu is very suggestive !! But this creative PR is backed by great...spanih based food, exceptional choices and delicious entries. All the selections came exactly as asked with a personal touch of attention. Theiy have amoderate list of wines but all Spain regions are well represented and the most premium wines Are less than 30 Euros. The restaurant is 15 minutes from the city center in a mostly residential area, but the 8 euros Uber or Taxi ride is worth it. Recommended .More
