Just amazing. Got here on our first night in Madrid because it was pretty close to our hotel and got great reviews. The restaurant is pretty small and cozy, and the menu isn't big either. We ate appetizer, main course and dessert, and that was absolutely amazing. Me and my boyfriend enjoyed every bite of our meals, and the kind... More

The restaurant is very cosy and nicely decorated, soft lighting, cool place. The food is a fusion of Mexican-Peruvian-Spanish. Some things are very tasty: guacamole and nachos. Others, frankly wouldn't take twice: rice with duck. The cochinita pibil wasn't to my taste either; I prefer the traditional Mexican version with shredded meat. Maybe I didn't choose well.

Had a great dinner at Metro Bistro on Monday night at about 8:30 pm (I know early for Spain, but we had just arrived the day before and were still getting used to the time zone). Quite a few restaurants aren't open on Monday nights, so this was a wonderful find. For starters, they brought out some tiny Mojitos in... More

We are staying in an AirBnb in the Arguelles area and tried Metro Bistro last night for dinner based on TA reviews. We were very pleased with the experience and the food. This is not your "typical" tapas fare but a very modern and somewhat eclectic menu. We chose to share all the dishes that we ordered and all were... More

This place is right around the corner from the Temple of Debod, literally around the corner in what seems like a very residential part of town. They didn't speak a ton of English but we were able to figure it out - I think they were surprised to have tourists in there. We ordered ceviche, croquettes and an empanada type... More

We visited here because it was close to our hotel and the TripAdvisor reviews! We really enjoyed it. The tapas was different with an Argentinian influence. The croquettes, empanadas, tacos and steak were excellent. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the staff were really friendly. Would recommend if you're in the area.

Decided to try something different than tapas and was amazed. The menu offered food that we had never tasted such as anemones. Service was exeptional. Really worth the detour.

Staying in Arguelles

Neighbourhood Profile
Arguelles
Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced, collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping spot where the major Spanish clothing and department store chains are less busy than their downtown counterparts, and there is an array of casual dining options to choose from. Check out nearby outdoor spaces such as the lushly planted Plaza de España to the south, which is often filled with craft stalls. To the west of Arguelles is the giant Parque Oueste, a calm and picturesque park with its own Egyptian temple.
