“Passable Modern Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2011

The location is very central, and the atmosphere is quite pleasant. However, the food is mediocre at best. It's a modern twist on Spanish cuisine, with more misses than hits.

“AMAZING RESTAURANT. EXQUISITE FOOD WITH REASONABLE PRICES.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2011

I still do not understand how this restaurant is ranked 270 of tripadvisor, when it should be in the Top Ten.
We discovered this restaurant a year ago through the web "eltenedor.com" with a hearty 50% discount on the entire menu, without drinks.
This restaurant is located in the city center of "Recoleta" halfway between the Plaza Cibeles and Plaza Colón, in a side street of Paseo de la Castellana.

positive:

- Large spacious modern restaurant.
- Staff very helpful and friendly. Of all the times we've gone, they already know us and know what we're going to ask.
- The menu is varied and fresh seasonal produce. It is interesting to let the waiter recommend
- The food is fantastic, very tasty and well prepared. We usually order some appetizers, and then a main course each. We usually ask for meat, or beef sirloin or tenderloin. The meat has always been well prepared and ready. Exquisite.
- For dessert we usually order the brownie with ice cream to share.
- With the discount before appointed, usually pay about 45 € in total.
- Public parking nearby.

Negative:

- 50% discount applies only booking through certain websites and from Sunday to Thursday.

CONCLUSIONS:

Restaurant good, nice and cheap from Sunday to Thursday. No discount can be somewhat expensive. If you are in Madrid and want to eat luxury, booking through the eltenedor.com and bon appetite, do not disappointed!!!!

- El descuento del 50% solo es aplicable reservando a traves de determinadas webs y de domingo a jueves.

“Great Spanish restaurant with New York style - plus non-smoking section”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2010

The appetizers are a knock-out. And the main courses are great! I had the black rice dish and it was out of this world. They don't have menus in English, and only one wait staff speaks English, but that's OK, be a little adventurous. The fact that they have a non-smoking section only makes this place greater. It's a little difficult to find, but definitely worth it!
