Nestled uncharmingly behind a gas station just off the road from Madrid to the Escorial, the exterior is unassuming. But don’t let the looks fool you; the food is great. The service is efficient and friendly. They start you off with a free sausage hor d’oeuvres. We ordered a cold bottle of white Rueda wine, which paired nicely with the... More

This is a restaurant behind a gas station! But not what you might expect! Fantastic, authentic Spanish food (attested to by my wife's Spanish family). Definitely worth the stop!!

I have eaten a dozen times at this restaurant over the years and always come back. It is located next to Hotel Monte Rozas where I have stayed many times. This a taberna not a fancy restaurant, but the food and service are great. We usually have all sorts of tapas and appetizers, from jamon iberico to pulpo a la... More

The restaurant is very nice inside and the service is very good. Waiters and waitresses were very attentive and never had any problem with our requests. Food was in general good but not outstanding. I believe they must offer the same quality consistently. This is of course putting it in perspective of the price: it is not a cheap place.... More

It may turn you down to have the restaurant entrance behind a gas station in the middle of nowhere. Well, don't let this fool you. The restaurant is excellent. Fine basque cuisine. I really enjoy this place. It is near my place of work and most of my visitors stay at the NH hotel next to the restaurant; so we... More

My review is a bout one of the 2 they have around las Rozas, in fact about the one which is in Ctra. Escorial. Although the environment does not seem so good from an initial point of view (in the backyards of a petrol station, in fact the place is really good with great seafood, fish and meat. Highly advisable... More

The first time I went to this restaurant was for an invitation and I couldn't believe such a restaurant is literally hidden behind a gas station on a motorway. Since then, it's my favorite restaurant in Madrid. The restaurant features the typical Basque cuisine, one of the most renown in Spain. Fish, the basic ingredient of the Basque cuisine, is... More

You normally would not look for a gourmet restaurant in the parking lot of a gas station. Yet that's where Gaztelubide is located. An improbable location for a restaurant of good level, one would expect more of a fast food there. Yet, this is an excellent restaurant, where I was attended to with high-standards service and where I ate excellent... More
