Enjoy Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas and visit this restaurant. Mediterranean and Spanish dishes are to be tried here. A number of reviewers mention that you can have mouthwatering hake, sardine and cockles here. The recipe for success of Alabaster is its tasty lemon pie, gâteau and mille-feuille. Take your chance to taste delicious desert wine, white wine or champagne. As clients write in their reviews, lemonade offered at this place is great.

At this spot, you can invite colleagues for a business meeting or business lunch. The cool staff works hard, stays positive and makes this place wonderful. Fabulous service is a strong point that plays a great role for the success of this restaurant. You will like attractive prices. The divine decor and quiet ambiance let visitors feel relaxed here. Alabaster is a Michelin selection and, as the 3 black knife-and-fork symbols mean, this place offers excellent service.

Pretty great tasting food. The presentation is trying to be Michelen but not quite getting there. We actually preferred the food at another Galician restaurant called Morgana we had a couple days prior.Unfortunately they are just a bit racist here. My wife and I came in on a cold rainy night with reservations at a bar table (beware, you don’t get the full menu, even though you are sitting at a table). We were treated much different than everyone else around us. The only difference is that my wife’s ethnicity is Latin American (we are both from California).Differences broke down like this: When we came in and told the hostess we had a reservation (she was the nicest person there, by the way) she sat us in our little table. Moments later a man approached my wife and told her that we couldn’t eat without reservations. That was weird, so she explained (her Spanish is perfect, as in scholarly perfect) that we had reservations and were just seated. The man appeared embarassed and apologized. Every other table was greeted warmly by the waiter and given a small appetizer of cheese and some mini breadsticks. Not us. When we ordered a bottle of water, the waiter dropped it off at our table without opening it. Every other table had their water opened and poured for them. At the end of our meal (which included three glasses of wine apiece) and two desserts, we were not offfered complimentary digestifs (every other table around us was offered them).The only other table that seemed to be receiving the cold shoulder were a pair of gentlemen that appeared to be gay (or just very friendly with each other - who am I to say?) They came in towards the end of our meal, so we couldn’t be sure.If you are in a party of all white folks and aren’t swinging a rainbow flag, then this is a great place to eat. We asked for wine pairing with our food and the sommalier was on point with every glass. He was also super professional and polite (just a bit snooty) and ended up taking over as our waiter as the evening progressed.
The food was quite nice, but the same abysmal service I experienced frequently in restaurants in Madrid. Where my Spanish neighbour was served in the most friendly manner, it took the help of another guest to get me in touch with a waiter. No explanation of what was on the plate, no bread to accompany the meal. Just not ok. Perhaps it’s a reluctance to try to speak English, perhaps it’s an underdeveloped since of hospitality. But, I am a guest who comes to enjoy a pleasant atmosphere and good food. One really does not come without the other.
Excellent service. Great food. great ambience.
