We were enticed to go in by the very charming decor and interesting and unusual menu. The restaurant is rather small but that added to the atmosphere together with the great ambient music. The restaurant was only a quarter full even though it was quite late (22:30) so we were surprised that there was only one table free - lucky us. Within an hour the whole place was full and from what I could hear most of the clients seemed to be repeat clients. The restaurant seems to specialise in pairing wine to the food which would have been interesting on another occasion. We stuck to having wine by the glass (rather smaller portions from the ones we are used to drinking in Málaga) but the price was correct at 2.50€. The food was really delicious and did not disappoint. Perhaps the portions are rather small but for us they were perfect as at that time of night you want to eat something exquisite without having to suffer from indigestion all night! I'm certainly looking forward to returning to this place on my next visit to Madrid.

Charged €10 for a modest plate of cheese and €12 for 4 anchovy fillets! Poor value for money and very disinterested service when the staff realised we weren't staying for a full meal. Nice wine though!

We went for dinner....place was empty. Food was extraordinarily good, though I wish that they would have put other half of quail on my main course...half a quail doth not make a dinner.

Well, Matritum was quite a discovery the other day. I've been living next to this tavern for the last 6 years and have never entered in until last Friday. The place is small but welcoming and decorated with a good taste. Waitress service is above excellent.
And the food! The food was a Michelin star quality! We had Spanish "croquetas", tartar and lobster salpicón for entrée, plus homemade bread and fresh olives. Then we followed with oven cooked monkfish with potatoes and green salsa (parsley, garlic, and oil of olives), fresh mushroom risotto, and tender beef with a mousse of potatoes. For dessert, we ordered brownies with homemade vanilla ice cream, and a Catalan version of crème brûlée with lemon sorbet in it. Every single dish was amazing! I would come back to Matritum as often as I can!
