This is way more than a cafe, we had the amazing tasting menu (highly recommended) and really enjoyed the excellent service and incredible mix of flavours and food. Thanks for a great evening.

We visited here because it was close to our hotel and the TripAdvisor reviews! We really enjoyed it. The tapas was different with an Argentinian influence. The croquettes, empanadas, tacos and steak were excellent. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the staff were really friendly. Would recommend if you're in the area.

Very helpful service. We all had steaks which were cooked exactly to our requests. Wonderful. The wine and puddings also splendid.

Decided to try something different than tapas and was amazed. The menu offered food that we had never tasted such as anemones. Service was exeptional. Really worth the detour.

Dinner here was a nice experience - starting with a complimentary celery mojito (delicious), fresh bread and 2 kinds of olive oil and ending with complimentary champagne. Meat and fish eaters will find lots of choices for starters and mains. As a vegetarian, the choices were limited. I chose a quinoa salad (that was unfortunately drenched in some soy dressing)...

We had lunch at this delightful little restaurant after a wonderful morning at the Royal Palace, Madrid. It is only about 10 minutes away from the palace and, if you want to avoid the noisy street restaurants with seating on the pavement and long queues, then this is the place to come. Everything is well thought-out and Metro Bistro certainly... 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.
