I love Basque cuisine and decided to visit this place after seeing it was ranked in the top two Basque restaurants in Madrid. The setting was cozy and the service was fast. However, the food was only average and highly overpriced. The staff is rather cold and our waitress had a forbidding attitude, regardless of how kind you would be... More

Dantxari is a Vasque cuisine restaurant it has been there for more than 15 years so you know you will eat well, go with the specials or sugeridos you cannot miss. Service is personal and I you go twice I do not know how but they will remembered you. Go for lunch, you will be back.

Enjoyed a pleasant evening here on a quiet Wednesday night. Only chose fish dishes with a couple of bottles of drinkable Rueda, each dish rich and redolent of powerful, well seasoned fishy flavours. Service was excellent too, and prices reasonable. Highly recommended.

Ok, first thing to say is that we had a good time. We booked online via Tripadvisor the day before, the restaurant had the booking and everything was really easy (even with my rubbish Spanish!). The food was good and the service was fine. It is a little more expensive than places we'd eaten at before; we even had half... More

Went here as it was recommended by a friend who lives in Madrid; I was not disappointed! Great local food with some interesting dishes on the menu. The wine list was good too, and all reasonably priced. We had a selection of breads and mixed meats to start and then some different fish dishes to follow. Everyone enjoyed the food.... More

Staying in Arguelles

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
