The patio is very charming, but the service is simply terrible. It took 1.5 hours to get a dish of rice and chicken which had too much pepper and made us sick! The mojito was made with cheap alcohol too and got us dizzy at...More

Madrileño offers a beautiful restaurant complete with a mid sized bird house. The food here is verrrrry good.. there is a wide range on the menu. Mixed drinks are good enough. Service is acceptable although slower when full and on weekends.

We were in Santiago for 2 weeks and this restaurant was by far the best we ate at. The service was very good. Mind you,there is no "fast" dinner in Cuba !

An ok restaurant with average prices, I don't think is one of the best in Santiago like many people say. Great service though. Our waitress was very helpful and made a great effort to speak English with my friends who didn't speak Spanish.

Delicious meals at reasonable prices in a beautiful setting. Order the grilled fish and buñelos. Pork and lobster also good, as well as chatinos. Much better food and service than you'll receive in a hotel. In a good neighbourhood, close to Parque Ferreiro.

I was in Santiago for four months, and ate at this lovely restaurant at least once a week! Great service and great food. I recommend the kebabs, called "brocheta" on the menu.

Walking into el Madrileno is like going to Spain for an hour. The food is "awesomeness" and the portions are just right. The price is reasonable. I have been is Santiago a few time and el Madrileno has become a must go place to eat.
