La Gastroteca de Santiago

Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Chef Juan Carlo’s cuisine is inspired by the different cultures that have inhabited the Iberian landscape. This interplay of cultures, flavors, and ingridients inspires, and the Chef. With this starting point in mind, Chef Juan Carlos fuses traditional Spanish cuisine (specifically Andalusan from his home town) with new techniques, flavors, and approaches. He takes dishes that have long been forgotten and reimagines them giving the Spanish past a modern twist.

We had a short time in Madrid and wandered near our hotel by the Royal Gardens. Our Spanish was limited, and the wonderful server had limited English, so it all worked out well. We spoke the language of food. He was just as excited about...More

One of the best restaurants to go eat here in Madrid. Everything on the menu is delicious. I totally recommend it. The host is also very nice and funny. (Ask for the famous sangría, their secret recipe is the best)

Service rivaled starred restaurants and honestly so did the rood. Please try the degustation menu. Everthing is prepared and served with love for the profession. The mention in Gault Millau is well deserved.

We went to the city center and near the “opera” metro stop we found this little jewel. A small restaurant with 5 tables inside and 5/6 more outside, at the terrace. I ordered pork ribs, delicious soft honey sauce on top and mashed potatoes on...More
