Es difícil no enamorarse de uno de los lemas de esta cervecería madrileña: “la cerveza es libertad”. Con esta máxima, que quien más quien menos ha sentido en sus carnes alguna vez en la vida, presentan una carta de cervezas interminable, repleta de referencias sorprendentes. Porque antes de entrar a El Sainete conviene tener claro que en su carta no tienen vino. Nada. Solo cerveza y agua, y muchas ganas de hacer pedagogía sobre un brebaje que ha decidido al fin reivindicar el lugar que se merece.

El chef Fran Vicente, ex concursante de Top Chef y curtido en los fogones de Coque, es el encargado de elaborar una carta pensada para maridar con las mejores cervezas del mercado internacional. Y lo hace sin temor a nada ni a nadie, pero con mucho respeto. Espumas, gelatinas, ingredientes de aquí y de allá y mucho rock’n roll es lo que vamos a encontrar en una carta que incluye desde un bao hasta unos callos, pasando por un ceviche o una picanha. Es perfecta para compartir, y está pensada hasta el milímetro para maridar con un surtido de cervezas que se encuentra entre los más completos de Madrid. Nada menos que unas 150 referencias en botella y 22 grifos forman la oferta de un establecimiento que presume de tener la cerveza perfecta incluso para todos aquellos a quienes no les gusta.

INSIDER tip

La súper gilda de bonito en escabeche merece por sí sola una visita al local.

Excellent modern-ish Spanish cuisine near the Palacio Real. The setting is a renovated street level space, keeping much of the original stone walls. The service is friendly and helpful. But the highlight is the delicious food, some seasonal, some regulars on the menu. Tip. Try the seasonal stuff. The ibérico pork (not ham) was flavorful and full-bodied, the bean and duck cassoulet-style dish was unctuous. And te standby short rib tacos are a Spanish twist on a Mexican standard. Very good.

Really nice décor. Menu was well rounded and offered enough choices without being overwhelming. Service was kind and accommodating. I’m not a beer lover and I loved that they paired with my courses. Music was loud enough to hear, but not obnoxious. I really liked the design of the restaurant and hope enough cool people patronizing the restaurant to keep it running smoothly. Delightful discovery!

Were there for the Madrid Restaurant Week menu. Food quality is correct. Maridaje with the beers is very interesting! We liked the food and the service a lot, the only negative point is that we still were hungry after the menu. This is maybe because it was a special offer.

Nice place to drink beer. But rather expensive for beer lovers and not sophisticated enough for all others.

Splendid quality of dishes, wonderful waiting service. A different beer with each course. There was variety, there was vivacity and atmosphere. Generally top quality meal.

We chose the restaurant week menu and really liked it. It was not huge portion but just enough filling for a dinner and it let you try many different flavours. The dishes of codfish and pork were very well elaborated and our brownie dessert was really delicious too. All were paired up with a different beer. I found the service a bit slow towards the end of the meal (when the restaurant started to fill). That's maybe they can put more attention to. Overall we were very pleased and we would be happy to repeat it.
