“Loved it”
Reviewed 5 February 2014 via mobile

I went there two times with a friend to have some cocktails and we loved it. The location is awsome. There are normal tables to eat but also barrels where you can have a drink! I loved the decoration on the walls, it's a cool place! The cocktails were great and the service very kind, even if I didn't speak spanish. The second time we went there the barman offered us our drinks and gave us good places to go out! I'll definitively go back there when I go to Madrid!

“Delicious Food and Great Service”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

This was one of the first restaurants that we braved in Spain without understanding a bit of the language and the server was very helpful and gracious. We highly recommend the paella and the Iberian steak, both were delicious. And if you want to find a Margarita in this city, this is one of the few places serving them and they are amazing, some of the best I've found anywhere with pure lemons, limes and sugar to flavor the drink.

“Wonderful restaurant! Superb value!”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

We stumbled on El Jardin the day we were leaving Madrid and were so happy that we did too.

As we were having a drink, we spotted on a board that they served rice with lobster and decided to have it for lunch. It was absolutely superb and great value at €30 for 2 which included a bottle of wine! It has to be the best value in Madrid.

On ordering we were told that it would take around 35 minutes and that was exact. We went out to a lovely outside covered dining area at the back of the bar, which was very pleasant with a nice buzz.

Would we go back again? Definitely!! If in Madrid, pop in for lunch or dinner - you will not be disappointed!
