“Excellent modern food, tasty and refined, very efficient service”
Reviewed November 17, 2010

I just don't get people who give 1 out of 5 because they find a place expensive or because the food isn't what they thought it would be...
Nodo is a modern asian/fusion restaurant. So if you go there don't expect huge plates or a bargain meal. It offers exactly what it says : a very good and original culinary experience, which usually doesn't come cheap.

I went there with 3 colleagues and must say we were all very pleased with what we ate : the meal are refined and nicely presented, the food is tasty and quite orginal. The plates are rather small though, so we all had a 3-courses meal.
Try the "bombas de lychee" for dessert, a true experiment !

Service was very professional and polite.

A very very good adress in Madrid, and not that expensive : we paid 210 € (including a bottle of wine) and all had starter/main course/dessert.

The wine list offers good wines at a (relatively) good price, which deserves to be noted.

“NO GO to the NODO....”
Reviewed September 29, 2010

If you want rude, inattentive staff then you'll be in the right place.

Took absolutely ages to be given menu's & when they did eventually come round with some we were given Spanish menus & were unable to read any of it as we were four non Spanish speaking ladies. They knew full well we were English yet chose to give us these. When finally we were able to get someone's attention and ask if they could possibly assist us they gave us English menu's. However, we were given different versions of the English menu, each menu offering different items. It took an age to get somebody to serve us & can honestly say we were not impressed with the staff attitudes towards us.
My friends had a lovely Caesar salad & I had the deep fried brie rolls, we had high hopes as the food appeared to be very nice. But what followed for our main course can only be described as a joke.
Two of us ordered the blackened cod, one ordered tuna and our other friend ordered a prawn dish. The prawn dish was just absolutely dreadful. It was basically one small prawn in a sort of batter, with odd little veggies like carrot sticks, also deep fried and piled high on top of the 'one' prawn.
The tuna was served raw although the English menu made no mention of this and both the tuna and cod dishes came with no other items, no vegetables or potatoes. The menu did not offer these as side dishes either. So you pay around £25 for a small piece of cod... and thats it. It tasted fine & was moist but nothing special.
We felt thoroughly ripped off, insulted & made to feel extremely unwelcome.
The chef refused to cook my friends tuna even though we asked countless times. It went to waste.
There is no way on earth you should ever go to this establishment. It is over priced, with rude ignorant staff & very average food.

My girlfriend and I had a great time. Our server was great. Very attentive and friendly, even though we could not speak Spanish. I highly recommend.
