Myself and my girlfriend moved to Madrid about 6 months ago and live around the corner from the Metro Bistro. Ever since our first visit to the restaurant we have been returning regularly. The quality of the food is simply excellent. From the quality of the ingredients to the perfection in the cooking. I've often had midweek cravings for their... More

We went there for dinner - service was exceptional, wine was fantastic and food was amazing. Their menu had a distinct asian meets modern spanish influence with a high level of respect to the flavours. Very affordable - 5 glasses of wine, 2 entrees, 2 mains, tea and coffee, complimentary appetizer to start, complimentary chocolates to finish. All for less... More

Laid-back atmosphere, excellent food, perhaps ten tables, attentive not intrusive service. Well worth the cost.

My husband and I enjoyed a light dinner of tapas here. It is on a side street, a half block from Pl. Marques de Cerralbo and 5 minute walk from the Templo de Debod. Very reasonably priced tapas and smaller plates (rations), salads and main dishes. Nice wine by the glass list. They played great music- light jazzy, upbeat, not... More

I was recently in Madrid on business, and discovered this little restaurant, off the beaten track and away from most tourist places, and went back three (!) times during my stay. It's located close to Parque Templo de Debod, Plaza España is walking distance, too. The menu is very creative, a mix of national and international ingredients and great wines.... More

Staying in Arguelles

Neighbourhood Profile
Arguelles
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 counterparts, and there is an array of casual dining options to choose from. Check out nearby outdoor spaces such as the lushly planted Plaza de España to the south, which is often filled with craft stalls. To the west of Arguelles is the giant Parque Oueste, a calm and picturesque park with its own Egyptian temple.
