“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2012

A bit expensive, but very good basque specialities, for a total of a good quality/price ratio.
Usually does not fail.

“Only worth a visit while on an expense account, preferably some else's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2012

Average Basque-style food with lackluster service. The manager is a little too pushy when suggesting appetizers to be shared and the bill is overly charged with fees for bread, which is excessive. The olive oil on the table, arbequina extra virgin, may be good the first 3-4 months of the year though is now tasteless. Desserts are fine though nothing special. The best part of the meal were the "tejas" that come with coffee. If you have a choice and it's not raining heavily outside, try something else. If you don't, it's not terrible but nowadays, with lots of competition and much more choice, there are better places not far away.

“Fantastic food with great ingredients”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

Gaztelupe has become one of my favorites in Madrid. Food is always delicious and very fresh! The steaks are wonderful and so is the fish. Try the ''chuleton'' and the hake. Starter tapas are varied and fantastic. Atmosphere is friendly and down to earth...don't expect any thrills, just some wonderful food and wine. Let yourself be guided by Isaac the maitre d'

“Always a pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

This is a great restaurant for so many reasons. I have been going for 10 years - and it never disappoints. Whether with friends, business or young families on weekend lunch - we have never had a poor meal. Expect to pay around €15 for starters and €25 for mains. Always decent house wine. Gracias!!
