    A quirkily decorated restaurant 100 mts from the Opera or Plaza Isabel II run by Isabel and her very talented sister Pilar as chef mastering Riojas region fare. Small with eclectic collection to view or buy. As well as an Aubergine amuse buche and toast we had the seafood croquettes, marinated chicken and braised pork fillet all of which were remarkably good. With 4 glasses of white the bill was a very modest €75 making it probably the best value and best hidden restaurant in Madrid. No hesitation in scoring this 9/10.

    From the moment we entered Algarabia we felt wonderfully welcomed by Isabel. This is my third visit to this restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. The service is amazing and the food, cooked by Pilar so diligently, is absolutely sublime. We had for starters the green asparagus wrapped in pastry and the rabbit bolognese - both extremely tasty, particularly the asparagus which came with a wonderful dip; for the main course we had lamb and oxtail stew - once again neither disappointed and an apple and toffee cream parfait completed such a wonderful dining experience. We highly recommend this wonderful restaurant and will return as soon as possible.

    Fantastic little restaurant run by two sisters, fabulous food and great service! We had a delicious fish dish each followed by creme brulee, accompanied by a lovely Rioja. 10/10

    The restaurant was wonderful with some minor issues. You only had one choice of wine. I was surprised at this. Also, the wine was not to my liking but that’s a matter of personal opinion. Personally, a great meal should always be served with great bread. The bread was so-so. But, this is probably a small thing to some people. In Spain, bread is almost always served with great olive oil. No olive oil was served. Everything else was excellent if you are okay with a limited menu of fabulous homemade cooking!

    As always, Pilar and Isabel were perfect hostesses ... their energy and their love for the restaurant are palpable ... leeks with duck confit was the perfect starter ... the chilled roastbeef plate a great summer supper ... and the poached pear for dessert ... elegant and tasty!

    Algarabia is really a special place. Felt like we were treated like family by Isabel and her sister Pilar. The food was authentic to Rioja and definitely must ask for the chef’s recommendations. All our courses were delicious and the house wine was from their region as well and outstanding. Not a tourist destination as locals were coming in after the opera. Very small and intimate setting so must reserve a table in advance. You won’t be disappointed. ¡Estupendo!

    We've been dining at Algarabia for about 6 years now and no trip to Madrid is complete without visiting Isabel and PIlar. Last night's dinner was wonderful: a tempting big of housemade pate to whet the palate, then my friend and I shared the octopus salad and the salad of leeks and duck confit ... light and fresh for a summer eve. We opted for the evening's special of a chilled roast beet plate and also shared the baccaloa (be forewarned that it is salt cod so saltier than fresh cod). For dessert what could be the freshnessof a poached pear. A bottle of the quite drinkable house wine rounded out a lovely eve. this is a restaurant defined by devotion to the customer. Youll see that many go on to become friends with the owners. such a pleasure to be back again among friends

    This restaurant is definitely a treasure. The food was incredible and the atmosphere very pleasant. Isabel and Pilar are great host. We tried several dishes and one was more impressive than the other. One of a kind experienced totally worth it while visiting Madrid.

    We had a lovely meal at Algarabia. It is indeed very homey, with one sister serving and the other in the kitchen. It's a lot like having a meal at home from a talented cook. We particularly liked the fresh pasta in the rabbit bolognese and the sweetbreads and baby fava bean starter - that was delicious. Mains were fine but - as often - not as exciting as the starters. Recommended! Oh, and there's an English menu.

    Simply charming restaurant. The owner made us feel as though we were in her home and she was our Auntie. You step off a big street in old Madrid into the room in a small house. Six tables. Walls with notices from newspapers and old reviews. Simple but delicious food at a reasonable price. Most charming place we have enjoyed in Madrid.
