Description: Cuisine, art?,? Culture?, For me a means of expressing feelings, based on knowledge, through training and continuous work. I was born in Bilbao, and after studying law in Madrid, and get Le Grand Diplome Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, I have not stopped wasting the opportunities I've had to learn and work with chefs from the likes of Luis Irizar, Jaume Subiros, Ricardo Idiaquez Angel Paracuellos, Juanmari Arzak ...; performing stages at restaurants like Le Toit de Passy, ​​Duquesnoi, The Motel Emporda; and I teach at various private schools in Spain, as Telva, Alembic, Cayenne, ... With this background, I opened Maitia, a restaurant with a few tables; simple decor, a secluded and cozy atmosphere where you can eat well, seasonal cuisine. The letter, short, with suggestions for daily news; products, choose me, here and there, but all of very good quality. Any day other than Sunday or Monday, stop by Maitia. Covadonga de la Rica. I continue ...

Delicious food, very attentive wait staff, nice environment. Having only very broken Spanish at my disposal, ordering was a bit difficult because it was all verbal (no printed menu), but our waiter was very warm and patient with us. Had a great time!!

This is a boutique restaurant with 7 tables. The chef greets you and explains the choices for the evening. The dishes are very good and the meat is extremely tender. Try the venison if it is offer.

We loved the relaxed informal surroundings and the friendliness of our hosts. Cova presents the menu herself, the only difficulty is making a choice as all the options were tempting. The food is superbly presented and full of rich, natural flavours.
I chose the restaurant based on recommendations for my 50th birthday for my family to enjoy whilst we were in Madrid, and we all agreed after that is was the best meal out we had ever had- and the children are harsher critics than I.
Would happily endorse both the food, and the experience, to anyone.

We booked Maitia last minute, but what a great find. As soon as you enter this quirky little restaurant your transported into a charming world of nostalgia.

The restaurant could be someone's dining room, in fact it is as the owner Covadonga, is soon by your side telling you what she has available from her kitchen. There are no menus as she cooks from the heart, and her food is super delicious!

I'm coming back to Madrid with my wife and will book another visit
