    A bit overrated - the food was affordable but didn't stand out. There are other better tapas spots in the city.

    Madrina Bar y TapasResponded 2 days agoThank you for your review, RiRo. We're sorry to hear you weren't a huge fan of our flavours. We assure you that our Chef and his team put a lot of care and consideration into using the best ingredients and care deeply about sharing cuisine that is modern and authentic. That said, we'd love to have you back for a chance to try some more of our tasty menu items, should you choose to dine with us again. Best, Stuart K.

    Service: Quick, friendly, and efficient. Our server admitted she was new so did not know the answer to many of her questions about the offering. That meant some running back-and-forth as she attempted to find the answers and some straight of shrugs when she did not know the answer. Food: good to very good. We shared the eggplant escabeche (superbly done, Altho the crostini was soggy), whole fried sea bass platter (beautifully presented but some pieces were dry), the crab cannelloni (desperately in need of better seasoning, and a chilli oil or acidic dressing to take it into “very good” territory), idiazábal cheese (good, but why were the crostini ranging from soggy to overdone/too crunchy?), the vieira gratinadas/scallop (very good), and manchego cheesecake (unique, surprising, well-composed and delicious). Wine: we are not well-versed in Spanish wines so cannot speak to the quality of the list, other than to say that it was extensive. Ambience: beautiful, booth indoors and out.

    Madrina Bar y TapasResponded on September 8, 2022Thank you for your great review! We're delighted to know your visit was accompanied by efficient service and the perfect ambience. The Eggplant Escabeche and Vieira Gratinadas are two of our personal favourite dishes, and we're glad to know you enjoyed them just as much as we do. It is wonderful you enjoyed the five-star experience we're known for and you expected from us. We look forward to your return and another lovely meal. All the best, Stuart K.

    Server gave one drink after 10 mins while everyone had to wait for the toast. Every time we reminded the server she kept saying I know It’s getting late. Very casual approach and no remorse. Was surprised with the attitude.

    I marked Birthday celebration when made a reservation and I arrived 30 mins early with a birthday cake. The receptionist happily helped us store the cake in their refrigerator. However ,we were told in the very last minute after all food are finished (Honestly speaking, the food was ok but the whole vibe is good so we ordered many.) that we cannot cut and eat the cake in their restaurant. If they could have told us earlier, we would not come far away to celebrate birthday here. The waitress also declared that churros were originally Mexican food so they don’t offer it as dessert. I thought Churros origin typically from Spain. I googled it and share to her. Really recommend this restaurant improve their service training.

    Wonderful experience overall. Food was great, ambience lovely (we were outside on patio), and the menu has amazing varied options. The only thing that caught me off guard was one of the waitresses slightly slamming down on the table my end of dinner decaf coffee as she was obviously rushed and some of the decaf ended up on my dress. This is not a deal breaker but it's not ideal when a staff member makes it known that they're too rushed to simply take an extra second or two to properly place a simple cup of hot liquid on the table. I'll still come back though (I just might not order an end of meal coffee) ;-)

    I ordered from the gluten free menu, waitress asked if we had any dietary restrictions to which I replied that I am celiac. I also asked about the Sangria and she said it might contain trace amounts. Food was brought out. I trusted it was gluten free, having said it 3 times that I have an intolerance. The crostini was NOT gluten free and she didn't tell me. She didn't apologize, just said she could bring lettuce wraps if I wanted. She was rude and disrespectful and it ruined my experience there. I do not recommend it.

    Food was great. The service was excellent. My only criticism was that the table we were given was simply too small. We came with the intentions of dining and having some drinks to accompany. There were two people who were seated beside us at a larger table (double) and only ate a fraction of what we ordered. I strongly advise that you ask your customers going forward if they intend to dine or drink (or both), as most of the tapas are served on a large platter which take up most of the table. We found ourselves almost playing Tetris with the plates we had on our tiny table, whilst the people next to us were only having drinks and chatting. Towards the end of the night, we began placing the plates/platters on the ledge from the bar right next to us, as they were not removed promptly thus continuing to take up space at our small table. The restaurant did not seem too busy either, so it's not as if there were limited seating arrangements.

    Madrina Bar y TapasResponded on August 22, 2022Thank you for your review. Nothing beats flavourful tapas and the perfect, customised cocktail to pair. It makes us happy to know Sara provided you with the outstanding and knowledgeable service we're known for and you deserve.

    Great experience. Went with a Chef from a works famous steak house and we agreed the food was great. We have probably half the items on the menu and only couple were mediocre. Service was great….only disappointment was why bother asking What was the occasion if they are not going to do anything about it? A simple candle on dessert we ordered will give the birthday girl an extra surprise.

    Music is WAY too loud. 2 broken toilets. Sangria was overly sweet $17 juice. Food was just ok, have a had much better tapas several other places. Won't return

    Madrina Bar y TapasResponded on August 11, 2022Thanks for your feedback, Ange. It's sad to hear we didn't quite hit high on your expectations when it comes to our flavours. We assure you that our Chef and his team put a lot of care and consideration into every dish. Also, we sincerely apologize for the broken toilets. Please know your feedback regarding our music has been heard and passed along accordingly. We would love to welcome you back for another chance to show you the 5-star experience that you deserve. All the best, Stuart K.

    The food at this restaurant was bland and overpriced. Understandably tapas are small portions meant for sharing, however the dishes were unreasonable and very underwhelming. Unfortunate.

    Madrina Bar y TapasResponded on August 11, 2022Thanks, Miguel, for your feedback. We’re sad to hear you weren’t a fan of our flavours. Please know we make it a priority to offer the diversity of flavours that our guests are hungry for and our chefs are passionate about sharing. Also, while we understand prices are subjective, we feel ours are a great balance between doing what's right by our business while reflecting the quality of our ingredients. We hope you'll consider us the next time you're looking to treat yourself. Best, Stuart K.
