I went there with some friends and it really reminded me of the good Brazilian restaurants in São Paulo. The service was impeccable and very good food. I will go back for sure.

I know Rubaiyat restaurants from Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo and it was my second stay at the Madrid location. The spacious terrace of the restaurant is a perfect place to enjoy dinner after a hot summer day. What a picturesque scenery surrounded by parasols and fresh vegetation.

They have no salad bar and as starter they serve excellent home-made Pao de Queijo (cheese bread) together with other bread specialties, olives and dips.

The service is polite and considerate. As aperitif is a Brazilian style Caipirinha a must followed by a cold draft beer.

As hot appetizer, I enjoyed the spicy Chorizo Criollo (Spanish sausage).

Almost all the beef cuts are from the own farm in Brazil, prepared on the grill and served on plates. The steaks have been well flavored and perfect barbecued. My rare grilled Picanha Summus steak had a fine texture and was very juicy and tender.

All the meat delicacies obligatory accompanied by potato soufflé. The barrel aged 2015 Luis Canas Crianza Rioja red wine with its fruity character and silky tannin was a perfect companion for the meat dish.

After the opulent meal, it was no space for a dessert. It was time to cultivate my full stomach with a double espresso and a cask aged Cachaca named Velho Barreiro Gold. The cafe was served with a nice selection of petite fours arranged at a well-looking étagère.

Dine at the Madrid Rubaiyat is a nice culinary enjoyment not only for meat lovers and worth to come back.

I enjoyed a business dinner in Restaurant Rubaiyat, late May. This (Argentinian) restaurant was suggested by one of our Spanish colleagues and we certainly do not regret spending the night here. First of all, the design of the restaurant is great and provides a warm and cozy atmosphere. There is a large garden as well. The staff is great and very attentive and on top, service is extremely quick and efficient. The food, although rather expensive compared to other places in Madrid, was delicious. I can certainly recommend this restaurant to everyone enjoying a great steak or fish.

Totally confused and unorganized service. Food and wine too expensive vis-a-vis quality. Nice surroundings.
Would not recommend this place to others.

Very expensive for the quality. Better steakhouse’s than this one for the price. Very expensive drinks.
