We lucked out on this one. My fiance is staying in Madrid one block away. The service was top-notch, everyone was accommodating and welcoming. The food was standout in all respects. Avant garde technique and presentation frames classical Spanish dishes and ingredients for a fresh and exciting take on tapas, i.e. the roasted (as opposed to fried) patatas bravas served with an elegantly light foamed Sriracha aioli. Beer and wine selection is extensive and priced right. We will definitely be frequent visitors at Bahia Taberna.

We visited this restaurant after reading all the amazing reviews in trip advisor. It is indeed a very good place, with very tasty and original food and very good service. The choices were a bit limited and the menu small, but everything we are was very well presented and yummy. The chef served us our main dish and he did come out in the end to ask for our opinion.

It is a bit out of the way to get there, since it is in a neighborhood close to the airport with nothing much nearby, so your visit there must be planned on purpose.

All in all a very nice place, but I wouldn't drive again all the way there, just to eat there.

Having read the reviews, we decided we would make the effort to visit this restaurant on our first night in Madrid and boy was it worth it.To be truthful it was no effort at all..approx.25 minute metro and 10 minute walk from Gran Via.We really enjoyed the whole food and wine experience from beginning to end of the tasting menu.if we had travelled 2 hours and paid double the price we would still have been very pleased with our visit to Bahia Taberna.The premises is most unassuming,certainly not stuffy but perhaps a little too casual for the dining experience which unfolds before you.What a wonderful assault on the sense of taste to shake it up and show it what's out there if you take the time to research and visit places like this.The staff who prepare the food are at all times are in full view and they really watch closely in anticipation of a positive reaction when you taste their food.Staff are really attentive without crowding you out.wines are carefully chosen to compliment the various dishes.Really liked the banana bread with foie and the squid pizza.you've just got to visit this place!

What a fantastic little restaurant! Michelin-standard cooking but with a lively, hip atmosphere and very reasonable prices. All the staff, fom the waiters to the chefs, were friendly, enthusiastic and took time to make diners feel relaxed and welcome. Good wine list and suberb tapa-style dishes. Please can you open a similar restaurant in London?

Muchas gracias por el comentario Stuart B, es un placer saber que has tenido esa experiencia en nuestro local. por otro lado la opción de abrir un local así en Londres es algo que vamos a estudiar. Un saludo.
