An outstanding meal, expertly prepared and served with tremendous respect for the dining experience. We chose the tasting menu and could not have been happier. Highlights were the inside-out ravioli, a melt-in-your-mouth braised pork loin, and for dessert, a deconstructed pina colada featuring a heavenly pineapple cake and coconut ice cream. The dining room was beautiful and comfortable, and the staff could not have been nicer or more expert. Truly a unique and rewarding experience.

We picked this restaurant from a Trip Advisor review and we were enthralled. We have fairly high standards with regard to restaurants and this meal was stupendous. The young Venezuelan chef, Daniele Scelza, who took the time to visit every table, had been raised in America and trained in France and spoke English well. He was a wonderful host and is a name the world should watch out for.

Every dish we ordered was a winner with very high standard of cooking. Proportions were reasonable and, when coupled with two delicious unexpected appetizers and a final complimentary 'bubbly' muscatel, we were completely satiated. The bill was extraordinarily reasonable. €250 for 4 people two courses, shared cheese, coffee and two bottles of red wine.

I cannot recommend the restaurant highly enough. Please patronize it. Daniele deserves your custom.

I loved our dinner at Lieu. It was probably the best service I've ever had. It was choreographed like a dance. The staff was friendly and very tolerant of our meager Spanish (they almost all spoke perfect English.) And the food was simply delicious (as well as beautiful.) All in all, a delightful experience.

The restaurant is located 2 minutes away from el mercado de San Miguel and it open its doors in June 2011. The staff is really nice and competent, they know at all time what the customer is expecting.

I tried the degustation menu, the dishes where flowing according to the taste experience and I was completely satisfied! The fairly young head chef is also the owner, and you will see him around the room deling with his guests, creating the link between the gastronomic experience & the worm of the house.

I totally recommend this spot, especially for tourists who want to experience spanish gastronomy at a fair price, go before they get the michelin star they deserve, because then it will be more expensive!

Good luck to the team, they really are making a good job!

We've been with my wife for the second time at Lieu. The first time we discovered this real jewel in June, few days it had opened. The experience was fantastic. We've been again at Lieu yesterday and the visit confirmed that it is one of the best places in Madrid. The food is fantastic, in a wonderful balance of creativity and technique that the chef shows to fully master. The personnel is extremely professional, the sommelier could even remember the first time we were there and the wine he suggested! The ambience is elegant but not exaggerated. Last but not least, the location in the centre of Madrid, close to Royal Palace and Opera is perfect for a walk before or after dinner. Truly recommended.
