“Wow!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

This restaurant serves imaginative food, creatively presented. Enjoying it requires a somewhat adventurous palate, but the food is not so far out as to be mystifying. One chooses how many courses one wants, specifies allergies and strong aversions, then sits back and lets the restaurant provide multiple, appetizers, main courses and desserts. We have eaten at top restaurants around the world and enjoyed Club Allard as much as any of them

“Awesome experience”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

A surprise in every dish with an incredible combination of textures and flavours. For example, for dessert we had an egg which was really a chocolate egg with a coconut white and a mango yellow.

We paired the wine and it was a great idea. The sommelier awesome, every wine enhances notes of each dish.

Lovely restaurant, ambience and staff. One of the best restaurants i have been to ever.

“Great time, good food”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

terrific experience, enjoyed our waiter, the food, and the presentation was unbelievable! My father and i were in Madrid and went here because it is known as one of the premiere restaurants in Madrid. I probably would not go back simply because of the price, but if you are looking for an amazing culinary experience for a special occasion, go for it!

“Excellent Food with mediocre service”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

.....is offered in this two star etablissement. Very nice interior with excellent food. They offer three different surprise menus (85, 98, 115 Euros) and they ask you if you have food allergies or some food you wouldn't like. You will get a print out of the menu at the end of the evening - not before so ! The wine list is dominated -for obvious reasons- by spanish wines but they have decent french, italian, new world as well - and it is very reasonable priced ! The food was sometimes surprising but always prefect quality and very delicious. Unfortunately I have to cut off one star because of the service, which was lacking real passion. Not really unfriendly but the waiter was bored and rushed us through the menu. He made the dinner a little bit unpleasant !
