“A total wow experience !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

This is a truly secret address you would want to share with somebody really special. Set in a beautiful building with the door to the restaurant hidden inside on the ground floor. Once inside, this restaurant has a small dining room with white table cloths black medallion chairs, brass chandeliers and black and white photographs all of which exude quiet and relaxed elegance. The menu comes in short, medium and long, and you can inform (when you book ahead) if you have any special food allergies. No formal dress code is required but a casual elegant outfit would be best suitable to the atmosphere and the usual clientele.

As for food, few michelin chefs can do well in both main courses and also dessert. Chef Diego on the other hand exceeds all expectations. In a very light-hearted Spanish style, every dish is humbly presented with a cheeky humor and so much creative thinking that makes you smile at your food. The trouble Chef Diego goes through to get the right touch and the right taste is just impeccable.

Also do bring a camera, you will regret not to. The very pretty desserts are absolutely eye popping.

“Reviews are accurate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2012

Awesome experience. Reviews are accurate. Innovative interesting and worth your time. No need to overdress. Room in photo's looks overly formal but it is ok to come without a jacket or even in nice jeans and a quality button down shirt (for men).

“A must do colinary pitstop an a Madrid visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

Just returned from an incredible lunch at El Club Allard, probably the best meal I've had in a long time with plenty of surprises to make you smile and wishing your Camera could capture some of the incredible sensations your pallette experiences while enjoying these culinairy masterpieces.
I visited with my 13rd old daughter who enjoyed it tremendously!
Spend the better part of the Friday afternoon (13:30-16:30) entertaining my pallette and it is an experience I can highly recommend to the most discerning pallete....
