    Excellent food and experience from start to finish. Best lamb I’ve ever tasted, and there was no waste from the four of us. Thoroughly enjoyed, and look forward to a return ASAP

    Incredible homecooked Riojana cuisine in a beautiful restaurant. Run by two Riojan sisters who make you feel extremely welcome and pay wonderful attention to detail. Totally recommendable.

    Two sisters from the Rioja region coming to Madrid serving honest and pure Rioja cuisine! We also got a great Rioja wine on the table which made us happy.

    A very special evening. Dining in the home of these two delightful sisters gave an intimacy that one seldom experiences in a restaurant. Isabel greeted us with her radiant smile and Pilar’s meal was outstanding. The braised oxtail, hands down my best meal ever!! Algarabía a treat in every way. AG Washington, DC

    What a treat, a block or two off the tourist trail! Cozy, like dining in someone’s home. Pilar is the chef, and Isabelle served us. Just celebrated their 24th anniversary in business, so they’re doing it right. Highly recommended as a uniquely Spanish experience.

    This is a very small restaurant run by Isabel and Pinar from their home, where the quality of both the food and the wine is excellent. Isabel was welcoming and informative and Pinar’s cooking is superb. We especially enjoyed the pate, the duck confit salad and both fish dishes that we had. The crunchy chocolate and raspberry cake was amazing too. Do try to visit Algarabia when in Madrid.

    Two sisters own and run the restaurant by themselves. The dining area feels like visiting at a friend or family's house in the best possible way. The service was efficient and the food was amazing. I can't wait to go back.

    I could not expect nothing better! The small restaurant with very few tables, offers a great selection of Rioja’s dishes, directly made by the chef Pilar in the kitchen; you can seriously hear her while mixing the ingredients for your meal! Her sister Isabel welcomes you in the restaurant with her big smile and typical Spanish vibe. Great dinner, great food, great location and great atmosphere! If you’re in Madrid, you MUST visit this restaurant!

    This was easily one of the best dining experiences my husband and I ever had. Two sisters run this restaurant. One sister welcomes you with the warmth of an old friend while the other creates delicious masterpieces in the kitchen. I cannot recommend this place enough. It has very few tables, but if you're lucky enough to get reservation you will not be disappointed.

    This is like dining in the home of friends. Isabel (front of house) and Pilar (chef) are the most welcoming of hostesses. The duck confit with leeks is excellent; the special of chilled roasted beef was the perfect summer supper; the braised pork with confitted onions so lovely; they even did a special dish for a vegetarian friend. Go and enjoy

    This is a restaurant known for a warm and welcoming setting and once again Isabel and PIlar were the perfect hosts. One cannot help but be taken with their passion for ensuring a great evening for their guests. Recommended dishes include the leeks vinaigrette with duck confit; the pork tenderloin with caramelized onions; the bourage with shrimp; and the special entree of the evening, a cool veal roast with mustard and arugula. Go, relax and enjoy!
