A young fyood blogger friend recommended Lhardy among several other places in Madrid. In retrospect, we realise he must have meant the place in the Mercado de San Miguel. However, we happened by the old restaurant on Carrera de San Jerónimo and went in for lunch. It was an interesting experience in every respect, not to mention a throwback to... More

Following a friend's recommendation we arrived for a Saturday evening meal and were not disappointed by its charming nineteenth century elegance. However the food was rather underwhelming, apart from the Octopus Brandade which was tasty, and the service just a bit too stiff and formal. It is also quite expensive, which might explain why during the two hours we were... More

We are thankful for letting us know your opinion. Our nineteenth century restaurant has a great variety of dishes and specialties, one of them is a traditional dish called "Cocido Madrileño" and others like duck and "Callos" prepared with prime quality ingredients and cooking for long period of time. We apologise for any inconvenient in your visit. More

This restaurant has potential, but unfortunately it is currently past it's prime. Kitchen needs a facelift - food pretends to be gourmet but isn't. Should keep it traditional and simple.

I am Spanish and every single time I come to Madrid I go to the san miguel market. I think that the quality of the market overall is going down, pushed by the tourism and crowds. But Lhardy's stand was possible the worst food experience I have had in years. We got the sea urchin, which was mainly potato, and... More

Note that this review is for the old restaurant upstairs, not the place in Mercado de San Miguel or the downstairs shop. There is a confusion in the ratinq as the reviews include everyhing under the Lhardy name. The upscale restaurant and the shop in Mercado are completely different eateries for different type of clients. The old restaurant is wonderfully... More

Tried the Lhardy location in Mercado de San Miguel for a quick snack and I would say they have a very interesting selection of Tapas that are not traditional Spanish. Definitely worth a peek.

My husband and I chose Lhardy based on a recommendation in Lonely Planet and also other reviews. While we knew it was going to be pricey, and as it was our last evening in Madrid before heading home, we decided that a great meal would be worth the price. What a DISAPPOINTMENT. The decor is certainly reflective of the era.... More

I had a great dinner at Lhardy, gazpacho,"Bacalao" with garlic sauce and as dessert a surprise, made with ice cream, that I shared with my mom because was very big. The waiter was very kind, nice and friendly and the service was fast, maybe also because the restaurant wasn't crowded at all. The bill was quite high, but we ate... More

The food is not fresh but not really bad itself. The problem is the woman who works there - extremely impolite and not helpful at all. I bought some things that she had put in the microwave for a few seconds but were still cold when I took the first bite. Went back there and asked her to heat it... More

Manipulative. Overpriced. Bad. I ordered 3 items as a crowd of people pressed to order. The server (an older, skinnier woman) added on two more of the same item (goat cheese croquette) while quickly saying "I recommend these too". Without even waiting for my permission they were whisked into the microwave. It wasn't until I counted my change I realized... More

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
