Recommended by our Program director and across the street from the Courtyard by Marriott, this turned out to be a great find. We were the first customers of the night (typical for American's eating in Spain) and before we left the place was filling up...More

First meal while traveling to the heart of Madrid and El Pimiento did not disappoint. Two floor restaurant, excellent for lunch. Tables are a bit tight but nothing like Paris. Food was excellent. Try the artichokes and calamari appetizers. You will not be disappointed.

The restaurant is casual, picnic like tables and benches, the food is pretty great, served quickly, no waits for the hungry ones. The servers are quick and efficient.

It was excellent! We were 2 people. We had mushroom in cheese sauce as a starter; plenty of bread and stripped steak for 2 people, which was more than enough food! Just bear in mind that the portions are very large, but extremely tasty!

I went here for a steak dinner and ended up having one of the best artichokes I have ever had, the place is nice and warm and the service is outstanding. The steak was good but not mind blowing.

Great basque cuisine, good hearty meal. The portion sizes are HUGE so maybe share a couple! The wine is good too! Staff were polite and efficient and the bread was amazing. Prices are high enough for lunch in Madrid but the portions are so big...More

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
