Waves of outstanding micro-food whether appetisers or desserts are not enough to convey an emotion I would have expected, even from the basic menu offer of that evening. They are not the minor issues who disturb (too many "are you satisfied" addressed, a bit too much salt quite everywhere from the otherwise very good 'garden of asparagus' to the meet,... More

Pretty good service but distracting in ways. More importantly, we chose the 15 course tasting menu of all of their dishes for almost 300 a person before drinks and there was not a single memorable dish, other than remembering which we liked the least. There was no excitement of flavor, many dishes were clearly prepared well in advance and several... More

I decided to have the full tasting menu which included everything. Glad I did as I did not want to miss out on anything! The selection of famous tapas from around Spain as an amuse bouche was wonderful and they tasted seriously good. The rest of the menu was a wonderful progression through seafood and meat. The desserts to finish... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Sergi Arola, and for the price we were not at all wowed. In fact, we left wondering why it's a two star. It was our most expensive meal the entire trip (we went to other Michelin star restaurants), and by far our least favorite. Now don't get me wrong, the food and... More

We opted for the mini tasting menu which was still a lot of food for 95 euro (plus tax). The meal starts and ends with micro dishes- miniaturized tapas and desserts. There were two starters, two mains, and a dessert as well. All the tastes were perfect with an excellent balance of classic and molecular gastronomy. My only complaint was... More

We came to the restaurant with the intention of eating " two star michelin" food, and we were very disappointed! They took two hours to bring is the food and all the food served was revolting. (Except for the potato wedges) Do not recommend this to anyone. Sot was to say the least below expectation Ian

Interesting....... We kept saying this throughout the whole event. We opted for the "crazy" 15 course Locura (tastings of the entire menu!) plus flights. We would have loved to be taken away by most of the tastings, but in our honest and experienced opinion found them to be safe; not overly tasty nor bland. We had issues with the temperature... More

I arranged a dinner with colleagues while traveling on business. The reservation process was excellent. I booked on the restaurant's website about 6 weeks in advance. A week before our meal I sent a quick email to confirm and received back a text message in Spanish, an email in Spanish and an email in English! The text confirmed jackets for... More

We opted for 3 courses a la carte but this was accompanied by several small dishes too, so felt more like a taster menu in the end! Some really excellent. I loved the veal sweetbreads on a mini barbecue of rosemary, the dessert was beautiful too. Small dishes mixed, some incredible, some less so. Overall service was good but not... More

Staying in Chamberi

Neighborhood Profile
Chamberi
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighborhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
