Had a reservation here. Called to reconfirm and no answer. Went to the restaurant and it was closed with a sign in the front window that they are fumigating until Jan. 29 2019.

I was really sad not to have like this place as I was really expecting much better food and service due to the chef's past experiences. Food was no more than ok, service was bad. On a brighter note the cocktails are good.

I have been to Laboratorio Madrigal in the past. My last visit was disappointing. The service is lacking. The servers act as if they don't want to be there. The food was not as good as in the past (they had a change of chef...More

The place is very nicely decorated, has beautiful wallpaper and nice furniture. The food is of very high quality and tasty, but the portions are relatively small. We made a reservation before we went and when we arrived nobody could find it in their computer....More

First, the positive point because I don’t like to complain just for the complaining: the food was very good and creative. The mix of passion fruit and teriyaki sauce was great and the fish too. The crème brûlée was good. Good proportions. The cocktails are...More

Sorry my confusion- I don't have a copy of the menu- but the food is amazing- wide selection from seafood to meats. I would recommend their tasting menu which changes daily- yummy
