“Overpriced poor quality small portions”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

This is one of those places that catches you once but never again. While the portions were miniscule the lack of flavour made things worse. Further insult was added when the bill finally came and left us gobsmacked at the charges for drink.

A one circle rating is too much to give this place.

Avoid this place if you are looking for a meal. To be clear.... Avoid!

“Food was good, service was same as everywhere else in Madrid”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

After walking around town, we made it to Plaza Mayor, sat at Hegar to have a drink and ended up ordering lunch. The food wasn't bad, one tried fried anchovies and they really liked it, roasted suckling pig was good (almost better than famous Botin, and the Paella was very good.

We experienced service extremely slow in almost every restaurant in Madrid, and here was no different. Our waiter was very attentive and unusually friendly, something we didn't see much anywhere else.

One thing to note, the food for this restaurant next to Soportal and another one, all come from the same kitchen, the waiters all go to the same place to get the food.

“Very ordinary food and service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

We decided to people watch on Plaza Mayor for a while and selected Hegar Restaurant, hoping that it would be a bit more upmarket and focus on food. Unfortunately, our meals were very ordinary and the service extremely slow. The bill was reasonable but it took a very long time to be able to pay. There must be better options on the Plaza.

“Great venue let down by food and service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Ate here mainly for the location but after initial attentive service was pretty much neglected. Food arrived in no particular order and trying to get the attention of anyone was a problem. Having specifically asked whether my sons dish was plain and told yes it then came covered with a sauce!! Expensive for what it was and ate at a much better restaurant round the corner the next night for half the price.
