An awesome meal all around, other than the spider crab stuffed hake that was OK. Everything else was outstanding from appetizer to dessert. The staff was more than gracious with us given our pathetic Spanish speaking abilities. It took awhile for the bill to materialize...More

My wife and I, two elderly Brits on a four day break in Madrid, enjoyed this fine restaurant for two evening meals at reasonable cost, located near to our Hotel Mercure. The food and service were exemplary and the atmosphere very relaxing. Highly recommended.

Dantxari is in the Calle Ventura Rodriguez (Metro station here) just north of the Plaza de España. As the name suggests, it serves traditional Basque food, and Basque food is allegedly the best cui-sine in Spain. Being located in a quiet street away from the...More

Ordered the set menu and couldn't of been more pleased. Also ordered a plate of fried mushrooms that were simply unbeatable. Threre must be something about this city; as two of my finest meals ever were both enjoyed here in Madrid.

Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense
University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced,
collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is
filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes
and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing
cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping
spot where the major Spanish clothing and department
store chains are less busy than their downtown
