A small but cozy restaurant with special dishes never tasted before. In particular, the lamb kebab was tasteful, tender and juicy. The Armenian wine we ordered well exceeded our expectation. Service was excellent.

My friends and I arrived to Madrid the morning of December 31st... we were aware that New Years Eve is a busy holiday everywhere, but we expected to be able to at least slip in at the bar somewhere for dinner. After walking around for about an hour we realized that we were very wrong, and with very spotty cell service we pulled up Open Table and Gayane’s was only about a mile away with a reservation available so we went for it.
WHAT A FANTASTIC NIGHT! The food was amazing, the service was incredible, the vodka and Spanish wine flowed all night, accompanied the meal perfectly, and miraculously left no hangover! We were so pleased with our entire experience and left absolutely elated. This place will be in our memories for years to come and we will most certainly visit again when in Madrid. Thanks so much for ringing in 2020 for us!!

An unexpected gem in the heart of Madrid! Small, intimate, cozy and authentic, this Armenian restaurant served up the most mouth watering delicacies unique to their country of origin. The husband/ wife team made us feel like we were guests in their home. A truly outstanding spot to savor delicious food and a cultural experience. Highly recommend!

This place was so awesome! We had the best night there. Our amazing waiter (who spoke English very well!) helped us pick our dishes so we could share and make the most of our experience. The food was delicious and very authentic, the price was very reasonable. Visit this restaurant, it was great!!!

Always take my foreign friend here, when they come to visit Madrid.
Very good and tasty food, nice atmosphere, friendly and professional staff.
You definitely should have a dinner here if you come to Plaza Mayor, for example - it’s nearby.
Be sure to book a table, so you don’t miss a chance to have a nice meals!)

The dinner we experienced at Gayane’s Madrid on our honeymoon was a memorable one. It was just perfect. We loved it so much that we will go back this year during our next Spain trip.

A 5 star experience form start to finish. Highly recommended, it made my visit to Madrid even more memorable. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly thanks to head chef Parunakyan which was a great host. Also the rest of the staff was just amazing, a great job from everybody. Thank you!

Small restaurant that looked very charming. Very enthusiastic owner keen to promote Armenian cooking BUT soon realised he was just out to empty your pocket. Insisted that the couple next door could not share a starter and main course as it would not be enough food for them when in fact it was far too much food. The special bread was so dry it was impossible to swallow. The meat was the cheapest of cuts at premium prices 25€ for pork neck. He changed our wine halfway through the meal from the house to something else without asking us. Not somewhere I can recommend

Veníamos de un tour por Toledo y llegamos muy tarde a Madrid, se nos antojó por las fotos y en primera tuvieron la amabilidad de esperarnos más allá de su último horario. Nos atendieron como reyes, la cocina en general todo lo que probamos (berenjenas, hojas de parra, yogurt, esturión, chuletas de cerdo, los postres) delicioso, pero el cordero es la estrella, definitivamente el mejor que hemos comido. Y la música terminaba de hacer todo el ambiente espectacular. De verdad una de las mejores cenas de nuestra vida. Volveríamos con los ojos cerrados

This was the best meal we’ve ever had! From the conversation and recommendations to the food! Incredible!

I wasn’t sure what to expect when we sat down for dinner. We had an in depth explanation of everything on the menu which felt like the tour foodies dream of! We ordered dinner based off the recommendations of the gentleman taking our order. Course after course we were blown away by incredible food layered in taste, culture and history. It was the ultimate experience. You need to go visit this gem!
